Right wing Roman Oksiuta, sidelined because of a groin injury since Jan. 23, will be in the lineup tonight as Coach Ron Wilson searches for more scoring depth. Wilson also will break up his top line of Paul Kariya, Steve Rucchin and Teemu Selanne. Nine of the Ducks' last 20 goals have been scored by the Kariya-Rucchin-Selanne line. Wilson hopes their skills will help others break out of scoring slumps.

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.

The Ducks were without wingers Warren Rychel and Joe Sacco on Thursday because of minor injuries, creating an opening for rarely used winger Roman Oksiuta and rookie defenseman Nikolai Tsulygin. Rychel was suffering from back spasms, and Sacco aggravated strained muscles on his left side during Wednesday's victory against New Jersey. He originally was hurt last week against Calgary. The status of both is considered day to day.

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.

Right wing Roman Oksiuta has been the Ducks' biggest underachiever. Considered capable of scoring 30 goals, he has only five and has been a healthy scratch 23 times, sitting out the last four because of a groin injury. "If he wanted to work, he could help our team," Coach Ron Wilson said. "Right now, he doesn't want to." Wilson and Oksiuta have clashed over Oksiuta's work habits and his defensive rating of minus-10. "I can't accept playing somebody who won't contribute in our end," Wilson said.

Mighty Duck forward Roman Oksiuta won't report for the opening of training camp Saturday if he remains unsigned, said Oksiuta's agent, Rich Winter. Oksiuta, the Ducks' third leading scorer last season, is one of three restricted free agents who don't have new contracts. The others, defenseman David Karpa and center J.F. Jomphe, are expected to report anyway, unlike Oksiuta. "He won't be there," Winter said Tuesday. "There's no way he'd take the injury risk.

Mighty Duck defenseman Nikolai Tsulygin made his NHL debut Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers--two or three years later than expected. Jason Marshall, Tsulygin's defense partner, understands. Marshall was drafted ninth overall in 1989 by St. Louis. Six years later, he had played only three NHL games before becoming a regular with the Ducks late last season. "I think especially in the NHL, where kids are drafted around 18 years old, for myself I was really young," Marshall said.

The way Mighty Duck Coach Ron Wilson figured it, Roman Oksiuta was stealing money. Given Oksiuta's meager production of five goals and 11 points in 25 games and his $600,000 salary, that was close to grand larceny. "He went a month where he didn't want to work," Wilson said. "He went a month where he didn't sweat a drop." Wilson wasn't about to play Oksiuta under those conditions. No work meant no play. Oksiuta failed to show up for treatments on a nagging groin injury, according to Wilson.
