The Kings' Jeremy Roenick will meet with his attorneys on the East Coast today and then give an affidavit to New Jersey authorities investigating the NHL gambling scandal, a league source said. Roenick, sources have said, was among the players who placed bets with a nationwide gambling organization run by Phoenix Coyote assistant coach Rick Tocchet and James Harney, a New Jersey state policeman. The two have run the gambling ring for five years, according to New Jersey authorities.

The totals for Phoenix Coyote forward Rick Tocchet in eight days of knee collisions are two opponents injured, two suspensions, seven games missed and about $186,000 in lost salary. The NHL suspended Tocchet for five games Friday because of a kneeing penalty against Detroit's Steve Yzerman in Wednesday's game. Last week, he was suspended for two games for a similar check Jan. 20 against Ryan Smyth of Edmonton. Smyth suffered a torn ligament in his left knee and will be out at least six weeks.

By giving up Luc Robitaille for Rick Tocchet, I get a feeling that hockey fans think the Kings traded one of the Little Rascals for one of the Hell's Angels. The big July 30 deal has infuriated scores of fans, some of whom doggedly insist that Hockey Night in California will never be the same. Robitaille was a hell of a hockey player. He was a lamplighter and a good kid and we practically watched him grow up.

National Hockey League officials suspended three players who were involved in injury-causing fights last week. Right wing Rick Tocchet of the Philadelphia Flyers was suspended for 10 games as a result of a match penalty he received for gouging the right eye of Dean Chynoweth of the New York Islanders on Thursday night.

Keeping their promise to get tougher, the Kings delivered a roundhouse to their roster and their fans Friday. Luc Robitaille, one of the most popular players in club history, was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins for right wing Rick Tocchet and a second-round draft choice next year. While responsibility for the trade is being claimed by King General Manager Sam McMaster, insiders say the move contains the distinct fingerprints of Wayne Gretzky.

Through a long litany of dreadful deals, at least the acquisition of right wing Rick Tocchet in exchange for Luc Robitaille was one trade some King fans could handle without screaming into the night. Now the Kings have dispatched Tocchet to Boston, replacing him with left wing Kevin Stevens and his aching back. Ear plugs, anyone?

When he steps out of a frigid practice rink into bright sunshine and 80-degree weather, Rick Tocchet knows he isn't in Pittsburgh anymore. His biggest concern isn't whether the car heater works quickly but deciding where to have lunch with Wayne Gretzky. And the bistro clientele can be drastically different, as he discovered recently at a trendy L.A. Italian restaurant. "Madonna was at the next table over," Tocchet said. "You don't see that sort of thing in Pittsburgh or Philly.

Between a concussion and a suspension for getting too many game misconduct penalties, Rick Tocchet has played only six games since the Boston Bruins got him from the Kings for Kevin Stevens on Jan. 25. A two-game ban kept him off the ice Monday, when the teams met for the first time since the trade. But instead of bemoaning what he has missed, Tocchet appreciates what he has.

When Wayne Gretzky suggested the Kings should acquire a 50-goal scorer, he didn't mean someone who might score 50 goals over the rest of his career. But that's what General Manager Sam McMaster got Thursday when he acquired left wing Kevin Stevens from the Boston Bruins for right wing Rick Tocchet. The Kings are only 13 years late in getting Stevens to Los Angeles. They drafted him in 1983 but traded him to Pittsburgh for the immortal Anders Hakansson, who scored 52 goals in five seasons.
