The Quebec Nordiques announced Thursday they have bought out the contract of right wing Anton Stastny. "Anton Stastny was very helpful to us," General Manager Martin Madden said in a statement. "He provided our fans with a lot of excitement, but we felt it was time for both parties to separate." In 650 NHL regular-season games, Stastny, 29, had 252 goals and 384 assists. In 66 playoff games, he added 20 goals and 32 assists.

The Quebec Nordiques released goaltender Mario Gosselin. "In the past two seasons, we have given (him) the chance to become our No. 1 goaltender," General Manager Martin Madden said, "but he hasn't accomplished what we thought he would." The Nordiques finished 27-46-7 this season, last in the Adams Division. Since joining the Nordiques in February 1984, Gosselin, 25, has compiled a 79-82-12 record with a 3.67 goals-against average.

Hoping it's not too late to avoid missing the playoffs for the third consecutive season, the Montreal Canadiens opted for a fresh start Monday. The team with the most championships in NHL history--and currently with the 30-team league's worst record (5-13-2)--fired its coach, Alain Vigneault, and general manager, Rejean Houle. Michel Therrien takes over on the bench, and Andre Savard is the new GM.

The Kings and Ducks filled out their prospect lists Saturday in the final six rounds of the NHL entry draft, with each choosing a goaltender named Gibson in the second round. The Kings, who had traded their first-round pick, took goalie Christopher Gibson of Finland and Chicoutimi of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with the 49th overall selection. The Ducks, who traded the 22nd pick for the 30th and 39th picks, chose John Gibson from the U.S. under-18 team 39th. Michael Futa, the Kings' co-director of amateur scouting, said Christopher Gibson was the top-rated goalie on their list.

Ron Lapointe, coach of the Quebec Nordiques, stepped down following Thursday night's 6-4 victory over the Canadiens at Montreal, after a tumor was discovered in his kidney earlier in the day. "It's a day I'll never forget," Lapointe said. "I got a slap in the face in the morning and a win at night. Nothing is over, that's for sure. . . . I'll be ready for the playoffs, I'm convinced of that." Pierre Beauchemin, the team doctor, said the tumor probably was cancerous.

Center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins of the Western Hockey League's Red Deer Rebels is expected to be chosen first overall by Edmonton on Friday in the NHL draft, the prime talent in a group not considered likely to produce many superstars. Left wing Gabriel Landeskog of Kitchener of the Ontario Hockey League is projected to go second to Colorado, with center Jonathan Huberdeau of Saint John of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League projected to go third to Florida. But Swedish defenseman Adam Larsson , ranked the top European skater by the NHL's Central Scouting Bureau, could crack the top three at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn.

The Phoenix Coyotes' third line is supposedly there to keep things going while the marquee players rest. It did a lot more against the San Jose Sharks. Landon Wilson shed the banger image with two goals as the Coyotes beat the Sharks, 3-1, Saturday night at Phoenix. "We know our role," said Wilson, who got his second into an empty net with 16 seconds remaining. "As third-liners we've got to get the puck in, get the puck out and win battles.
