The Kings will have a Robitaille on their roster after all--but not future Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille. Nor will they have five-time NHL scoring champion Jaromir Jagr, contrary to widespread speculation. After announcing Saturday the Kings had agreed to a one-year deal with unrestricted free-agent center Randy Robitaille, club spokesman Mike Altieri denied reports the Kings are trying to acquire Jagr from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The New York Islanders acquired center Randy Robitaille from the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday for a fifth-round pick in this year's entry draft. The Islanders also sent forward Claude Lapointe to Philadelphia for a fifth-round pick. The 27-year-old Robitaille has five goals and 12 assists in 41 games for the Penguins. Last season he had 10 goals and 20 assists in 40 games. "Randy is a gifted offensive player that we believe is a good fit for us," Islander General Manager Mike Milbury said.

Since training camp opened, the Kings are 5-2-1. Unfortunately for them, all five victories were in exhibition games and they head for Dallas and their first road game of the season with a 0-1-1 record. Based on their spotty play in a tie with Phoenix and one-goal loss to the second-year Minnesota Wild, the Kings are struggling to get their regular-season act together. And the last thing Coach Andy Murray wants is to have the Kings play like a team thinking it is better than it is.

The Kings lost another Robitaille on Friday, this time when Randy Robitaille was claimed on waivers by the Pittsburgh Penguins. The loss of the 26-year-old forward, who signed with the Kings as a free agent last summer, is further fallout from Adam Mair's 10-game suspension for leaving the bench to join a brawl in the Kings' Dec. 20 game against the Ottawa Senators. While Mair serves his suspension--he'll be eligible to return to the lineup Jan. 15--his roster spot is frozen.

The Bruins had their usual luck Thursday night in Boston. They got Ray Bourque's 1,000th assist, but they also got whipped, 6-3, by the New York Islanders. And to add injury to insult, Boston lost highly regarded center Randy Robitaille for the season, 47 seconds into his first NHL shift, when he was checked into the boards and suffered a sprained shoulder. Robitaille had signed a $1.35-million contract after his college season ended last Saturday.

Rick DiPietro made an Islanders-record 56 saves, but he came up one save shy in the shootout Monday night in the Rangers' 2-1 victory in the New York-New York matchup. "It's my job to make as many saves as I can. I was able to do that for the most part," said DiPietro, who made a career-high 15th straight start. "It's always tough to lose." DiPietro allowed only an early third-period goal to Petr Prucha, and a score by Matt Cullen in the second round of the shootout.
