Ron Hextall, the legendary Philadelphia Flyers goaltender who performed strongly as Kings vice president/assistant general manager for seven years, is returning to Philadelphia as the team's assistant general manager/director of hockey operations. While the move might appear on its surface to be a lateral transition, there is also speculation Hextall, 49, could ultimately replace Flyers GM Paul Holmgren. “We are very pleased to welcome back Ron Hextall to our management team,” Holmgren said in a statement released by the Flyers.

Sick, in this case, was not a bad thing. The Kings were giving kudos Monday to a former teammate, Toronto goalie Jonathan Bernier , who was the man of the hour after his spirited fight against goalie Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night. "Sick," said Kings left wing Kyle Clifford , with the knowing smile of an enforcer. Said Kings defenseman Drew Doughty : "That was awesome. I texted him after and told him it was pretty sick. I always knew he [Bernier]

Pro Hockey Ron Hextall is retiring from hockey, ending a career in which he led the Philadelphia Flyers to the Stanley Cup finals 12 years ago when he was the league's best goalie. He said Monday at the Flyers' training camp that he had accepted a job as a professional scout for the team. Hextall, 35, was released by the Flyers this summer after playing backup all season. He was not claimed in the expansion draft and his retirement was expected. He was 10-7-4 with a 2.

The National Hockey League will hold a hearing next week to decide whether to take disciplinary action against Philadelphia goaltender Ron Hextall. Hextall left the goal crease in the Flyers' game against Montreal Thursday night and charged at Canadien defenseman Chris Chelios, sparking a brawl in the closing minutes of the Wales Conference final game. Hextall was given a major and a match penalty by referee Don Koharski. The Canadiens won the game and the series and face the Calgary Flames in the Stanley Cup finals, starting Sunday night.

Ron Hextall, ineffective in goal when the New York Islanders were humiliated by the rival New York Rangers in last season's playoffs, was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday. Hextall was packaged with a sixth-round draft choice in 1995 for 25-year-old goalie Tommy Soderstrom. "I don't think anybody can work harder than Ron Hextall," said Islander General Manager Don Maloney in announcing the trade. "He had a slow start and a disastrous finish here, and New York's a tough town."

Ron Hextall became the first Philadelphia goaltender to record back-to-back shutouts since Bernie Parent in 1975, stopping 21 shots in a 3-0 victory over the visiting Hartford Whalers Monday. Eric Lindros had a goal and two assists to exceed 100 points for the first time in his career. Teammate Mikael Renberg, bothered by a recurring abdominal injury, was advised to take 10 to 14 days off.

There is more than just a little bit of Ron Hextall living in the body of Kings goalie Jonathan Quick. That is, the once-hot-tempered goalie Ron Hextall, not the current calm corporate Ron Hextall, the Kings' assistant general manager, destined to run an NHL team someday. Quick waved his stick and verbally went after both referees after the Kings lost, 2-1, in overtime to the Sharks in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal series at San Jose on Saturday night. He received a game misconduct for his actions but escaped supplementary discipline from the NHL. The league said Sunday that Quick would not be fined or suspended.

VANCOUVER, Canada -- An off-ice note before we get to the on-ice festivities leading up to the Kings' playoff opener against Vancouver on Wednesday night at Rogers Arena. The Montreal Canadiens are interested in talking to Luc Robitaille, the Kings' president of business operations, and Ron Hextall, the Kings' assistant general manager, about the vacant general manager's job in Montreal. However, nothing is expected to proceed until the Kings' season is over. The Kings would have to give permission for Montreal to interview them.

They lost the chance to pick up two points in the standings but will the Kings lose a key member of their front office? Not yet. Reports trickled out late Saturday night that the Columbus Blue Jackets were interested in hiring Kings Assistant General Manager Ron Hextall , a highly regarded executive around the league. These rumors ranged from faintly credible to faintly ludicrous. Hextall was leaving the press box at Staples Center shortly after the Kings lost to Pittsburgh, 3-2, in a shootout, and was his usual accommodating self.

The Kings re-signed restricted free-agent defenseman Jack Johnson to a two-year contract Friday with an annual cap hit of $1.425 million, a deal that gives Johnson time to "prove what level player he can get to," according to Assistant General Manager Ron Hextall. Johnson, 22, played only 41 games last season after undergoing shoulder surgery. He has offensive skills but has had trouble in his own zone, and his return had rocky moments.

Assistant general manager Ron Hextall, on the road again, was headed to a junior hockey game at Lewiston, Maine, to watch a prized Kings prospect, goalie Jonathan Bernier. An acquaintance asked Hextall whether he would say to the prodigy: "Hey, kid, I scored a goal 20 years ago, you should too." He laughed. "I don't want to say that because then I've got to admit it was before he was born," said Hextall, who is 43. Good point.

Hextall, who had sustained groin and hamstring injuries in his two NHL games this season, injured the other groin muscle while trying to stop a wrist shot by New Haven's Scott Bjugstad.

Ron Hextall is no longer Philadelphia's top goaltender, but the veteran was still able to grab a piece of Flyer history Friday night. Hextall became Philadelphia's all-time victory leader, making 19 saves to help the Flyers to a 3-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes at Greensboro, N.C. Hextall, now the backup to John Vanbiesbrouck, passed Hall of Famer Bernie Parent with his 233rd victory as the Flyers won their third in a row.
