At the time, Rembert, 57, was undergoing dialysis every other day and fighting off bouts of depression while waiting for a donated kidney. When he pricked his finger with a fishhook, Rick Wilson, who was fishing nearby, offered him a bandage and they struck up a conversation.

Ever since the Kings lost to Edmonton in the playoffs last spring, assistant coaches Cap Raeder and Rick Wilson have been uncertain about their futures. Raeder's uncertainty ended Monday when General Manager Nick Beverley and Coach Barry Melrose told him that they want him to stay. Wilson's future remains in limbo, but he will not be returning in the same capacity. He may wind up coaching the Kings' minor league team at Phoenix, replacing Ralph Backstrom, who resigned in June.
