With at least part of the blame being tossed his way for a season-opening 1-5-1 record at Colorado, embattled left winger Eric Lacroix went to the general manager, his embattled father Pierre Lacroix, and requested a trade. Where better to send his son than to a place that liked him so much that the fans voted him the team's most popular player? That's how Lacroix returned to the Kings on Thursday, traded for seldom-used winger/center Roman Vopat and a sixth-round choice in the 1999 entry draft.

Eric Lacroix spent Thursday night watching his former employers beat the San Jose Sharks, then playing host to former Colorado teammates who came by his house for a combination victory celebration/bon voyage party. He spent Friday morning in the air, starting at 4:30 a.m., then skating at the Great Western Forum; and Friday night watching his new employers, the Kings, play Tampa Bay. "He's pretty tired, and he hasn't slept much lately," Coach Larry Robinson said, explaining the scratch.

The Kings solidified the goaltender position Thursday by acquiring Stephane Fiset from the Stanley Cup champion Colorado Avalanche in exchange for left wing Eric Lacroix. Fiset, 26, immediately becomes the Kings' No. 1 goaltender, as the organization unofficially parted ways with veteran Kelly Hrudey, who has been the incumbent since the 1988-89 season.

The Kings on Friday announced the signing of goaltenders Stephane Fiset and Byron Dafoe, defenseman Mattias Norstrom and center Nathan LaFayette. Norstrom, LaFayette and Dafoe had been Group 2 (restricted) free agents. Fiset, recently acquired from Colorado for Eric Lacroix and expected to be the top goalie next season, signed a three-year deal. Dafoe, who played 47 games last season for the Kings and had a 3.87 goals-against average, signed for a year.

Todd Hlushko scored one of Calgary's two power-play goals as the Flames beat the Kings, 3-2, in a penalty-marred NHL exhibition game Wednesday night. Hlushko took a centering pass from Dean Kennedy and flipped a four-foot wrist shot past King goaltender Frederick Beaubien at 15:45 of the second period, giving the Flames a 3-0 lead. The Kings, playing with a roster filled with minor leaguers, rallied over the next 10 minutes.

Sitting, holding his crutches, Kings' winger Russ Courtnall was talking Saturday about the view from the injured list. It's lousy. "You look at [opponents] and their eyes get as big as saucers," said Courtnall, three weeks into rehabilitation for a broken ankle, suffered when he stopped a puck with his boot at San Jose on Nov. 18. "They want to take advantage of teams that are struggling like we are." And take advantage they do.

Kevin Todd has gone from the slag heap to a prominent spot on the Duck roster. Claimed off waivers from Pittsburgh on Oct. 4, Todd has given the Ducks' punchless offense a boost while playing on the top line with Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne. Todd signed a two-year deal with Pittsburgh last summer but was placed on waivers when the Penguins acquired veteran defenseman Craig Muni. Now, Todd is the Ducks' second-leading scorer with four goals and a team-leading eight assists.

Ziggy Palffy never really wanted to move, he said. He just wanted to be able to afford one of the best houses in the neighborhood. Palffy, an all-star right winger who is one of only five NHL players to score 40 goals in each of the last three seasons, signed a $25-million, five-year contract with the New York Islanders after protracted negotiations that, at various times, had him going to most of the league's well-heeled teams.
