Brett Lindros followed the lead of his older brother Eric on Saturday when he opted not to play in the Ontario Hockey League. Lindros was not among the scores of teen-age prospects at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens when the Kingston Frontenacs selected him with the second overall pick in the OHL draft. Lindros, a 16-year-old center, told the OHL before the draft that he intends to play college hockey in the United States.

An arbitrator will decide no later than Nov. 12 whether the New York Islanders must pay Brett Lindros the $5.6 million left on the contract he signed in 1994, Lindros's father said. "We were extremely pleased that this is going ahead like this," said Carl Lindros, who serves as his son's agent. The hearing will be held in Chicago. NHL arbitrator John Sands set the Nov. 12 deadline Friday.

The partnership between right wing Brett Lindros and the New York Islanders was expected to be an enduring, magical one when the franchise made him its first-round draft selection in 1994. Instead, the younger brother of Philadelphia Flyer center Eric Lindros was out of professional hockey by 1996. He suffered three severe concussions at the NHL level and at first found himself unable to sleep at night or to dial the telephone, according to his father Carl.

Hoping Eric Lindros would be available for the Eastern Conference finals, the Philadelphia Flyers learned Sunday that they might not have him at all. Lindros, out since March 13 because of a concussion, suffered another Thursday in a supposedly non-contact scrimmage when he collided with Francis Lessard of the Philadelphia Phantoms of the AHL. Twenty stitches were needed to close a cut on Lindros' lip. He was bothered by headaches and returned to Toronto for continued therapy.

The New York Islanders kept trying to kill a penalty Thursday night, and it just kept killing them. Vladimir Malakhov received a major penalty for high-sticking Boston's Adam Oates in the first period, and by the time the penalty was served the Bruins had three goals en route to a 3-2 victory. "The penalty was the only part of the game that was tough for us," said Islander forward Derek King, whose third-period power-play goal made the score close.

With the second pick of the NHL entry draft today, the Mighty Ducks have a chance to get an almost sure-fire future star. But anyone who wants to see center Radek Bonk, defenseman Ed Jovanovski or goaltender Jamie Storr in a Duck uniform might be a bit uncomfortable to learn that General Manager Jack Ferreira was in the Rams' war room for the NFL draft, watching as they twice traded their first-round pick.
