When Jamie Storr suffered a groin strain in the first period Tuesday night, King officials checked the Ice Dogs' schedule, only to find out that Long Beach was at home, resting. The Ice Dogs travel to Utah for an IHL game tonight, but will be without goalie Mike O'Neill, the next in line now that Storr is deemed too injured to play or back up Marcel Cousineau at Dallas. To make room for O'Neill, the Kings are planning to send down Jere Karalahti.

Goaltender Guy Hebert practiced Thursday for the first time since suffering a concussion Monday but wasn't sure whether he would be ready for the Mighty Ducks' game against the Washington Capitals tonight. "I feel pretty good. Not bad, but still a little weird, a little dizzy," Hebert said. "I'll talk to the doctors and seek their medical expertise." Hebert was considered questionable for the game after an examination Thursday afternoon by team physician Ron Glousman. An MRI exam was normal.

The three-week contract stalemate with defenseman David Karpa ended Friday when he agreed to terms on a one-year deal. "I'd say they won this battle," said Karpa, a restricted free agent who agreed to the team's original offer of $425,000 with some added incentive clauses. "I've been thinking about it the last month and I don't think they were going to budge from where they were. "I guess it was a learning process.
The Mighty Ducks' Todd Krygier was so far out of the Washington Capitals' plans last February that they traded him to the Ducks for no more than a fourth-round draft pick. Not only has Krygier found a place with the Ducks, he has found a place on what is for now the first line, with left wing Paul Kariya and rookie center Chad Kilger.

The Gulls' two-game winning streak took an icy turn in an 8-2 defeat to the Indianapolis Ice in front of 7,403 at the State Fairgrounds Coliseum Friday. The Gulls have not come close to winning in three games against the Ice this season, all in Indianapolis. Their previous defeats to Indianapolis, the defending IHL champions, have been by 6-1 and 9-0 scores. The Gulls' loss allowed the Phoenix Roadrunners to overtake them in the International Hockey League West Division standings.

Long before her death, Joan Kroc had begun building her legacy. In the mid-1990s, her representatives approached the Salvation Army with an idea for erecting a community center in a rundown neighborhood here. Officials from the group penciled out several rough budgets. Kroc, who died in October at age 75, rejected them all. "Think big," she exhorted, "bigger than you've ever thought before." Two weeks ago, the world discovered just how big Kroc had been thinking.

Three steps remain in setting the Kings' roster for the season, which begins Saturday at Nashville: Today's waiver draft, in which they might go after a defenseman, though few are available; final cuts, and signing defenseman Mattias Norstrom. The Kings have exposed eight players to the draft, which will be conducted by conference call today at 9 a.m.
Detroit goalie Mike Vernon was the ironman: He played all 101 minutes 31 seconds of the Red Wings' 5 1/2-hour triple-overtime victory over the Ducks on Sunday. The Ducks, of course, used two goalies because Guy Hebert was hurt in the third period. "And they both played a game," Vernon said. "I just tried to conserve a little energy and be ready as soon as they crossed the red line. . . . Usually I skate corner to corner. I stopped doing that. I tried to focus on what was in front of me."

It was difficult to pin the blame for the Ducks' 3-2 loss Saturday against the Edmonton Oilers on goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere. Sure, he gave up two goals on the first four shots he faced in his Duck debut. But the goals came on breakaways by two skillful players in the Oilers' Anson Carter and Doug Weight. "It was not the best way to start," said Giguere, who made 15 saves. "It would have been better to get a couple of easy shots first."
