Stuart's Roller World abruptly closed the doors to its roller hockey rink Monday after the building's transformer blew out Sunday night. Owner Stuart Silver said all sporting activities have been moved to Glacial Gardens in Lakewood, or players can get a refund of any payments. "We're working off of generators now and we're looking for another location," Silver said Tuesday. "We still want to stay in business." The roller hockey rink has more problems than its loss of power, city officials said.

The Roller Hockey International game between the Blades and the San Diego Barracudas scheduled for today at the San Diego Sports Arena has been rescheduled for Monday at noon at the Forum. Here's the catch: It will be closed to the public, except for San Diego season-ticket holders. The change occurred because San Diego owner Dennis Murphy has decided to play his team's final two home games on the road and then move the franchise next season.

The sports scene at Studio City Park leans toward that of Canada--minus the ice. Like their neighbors to the north, many children here eagerly learn to skate and play hockey--albeit on rollers, not blades--almost before they can walk. Leagues for players as young as 5 hold regular games, drawing hordes of goal-scorers from all over the San Fernando Valley.
