Wayne Gordon King (born September 4, 1951) is a retired professional ice hockey centre who played in the National Hockey League for the California Golden Seals. During the 1973-74 season, King piled up 34 goals and 34 assists, skating for the Salt Lake Golden Eagles of the Western Hockey League, the Seals' top farm team. A left-shot operating from the opposite wing, his performance earned him WHL Second Team All-Star Right Wing honors at season's end. Following his retirement from professional hockey in 1977, King continued as an amateur forward, joining the Senior A Barrie Flyers, and later the Collingwood Shipbuilders and Midland Athletics intermediate clubs in the Ontario Hockey Association. In 1996, King was one of the inaugural inductees selected to the Midland (Ontario) Sports Hall of Fame.
