Richard Park learned to skate at age 7, tagging along with his older sisters who were taking figure skating lessons at the Brea Mall rink. "I went out and didn't fall once," he said. "OK, maybe once." Thirteen years passed and Park skated again in Orange County--this time in the Pond, wearing the green and eggplant colors of the Mighty Ducks. Park, 20, was acquired in a trade with Pittsburgh on Tuesday and scored his first goal of the season Wednesday against the Kings.

It is autumn on the shores of Lake Ontario east of Toronto, the maple leaves are turning a reddish-brown and Richard Park of Rancho Palos Verdes is back in a chilly hockey rink. Park, now 17, has been in Canada for nearly five years, seasoning his ice hockey skills in an attempt to make it to the National Hockey League. He was a young phenomenon in Southern California, once scoring 10 goals in a game against older opponents.

In the NBA and major league baseball, it's a common enough dream come true: A kid grows up in Southern California and ends up playing for his hometown team. The NHL? That's a little different. The Mighty Ducks made two small moves for the stretch run Tuesday before the trading deadline, but they made one big dream come true when they acquired center Richard Park, who grew up in Rancho Palos Verdes.

Center Richard Park, who was born in South Korea and grew up in Rancho Palos Verdes, once dreamed of playing for the Kings at the Forum. He wasn't drafted by them, but at least part of his dream will be realized tonight. Park, 18, is in Pittsburgh's lineup for an exhibition game at the Forum. The Penguins selected him in the second round of the NHL's entry draft in June, and Park has surprised many observers by remaining with the team.

The Mighty Ducks made only two small moves before the NHL trading deadline Tuesday, making a big bet that the team that has gone on an 11-game unbeaten streak will be good enough to make the Stanley Cup playoffs. "I like the way we had been playing, but you never stop looking. It still wouldn't have prevented us from making the right deal," General Manager Jack Ferreira said.

When the winds gusting off Lake Ontario made his teeth chatter, Richard Park knew he wasn't in Rancho Palos Verdes anymore. "My first winter, wow! I didn't even know what a winter coat was," he said. "Well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but it's pretty much true. I like winter now. It's nice to see the change of seasons." Park was 13 when he gave up the warmth and comfort of home to play hockey in Toronto, hoping to improve his skills in Canada's youth and junior leagues.

They call him "Flash," this 12-year-old Rancho Palos Verdes kid touted in international hockey circles as the next Wayne Gretzky. Richard Park's stick-handling and passing are so crisp, comparisons to The Great One are inevitable. On the ice, boys his own age are no match. He has dominated teen-agers four years older than he. Born in Korea, raised in Southern California, Park is living a power play in a sport long dominated by Easterners and Canadians. "At his age he does things on the ice that I guarantee not all the pros can do," said UCLA club hockey team Coach Jack White.

A Sacramento Superior Court judge ruled in favor of a Voter Revolt motion, backed by lawyers for Insurance Commissioner Roxani Gillespie, that all cases involving Proposition 103, the landmark insurance initiative, be consolidated in one court. Currently, different actions are proceeding in courts in several cities.
