It began just after he came back from playing for Canada in the 1984 Winter Olympics at Sarajevo. He was 18 and Toronto called him up from Victoria to play his first NHL game. "I was sooooooo young," Russ Courtnall, now 33, said. When the puck dropped Wednesday night at Phoenix, Courtnall had played in game No. 1,000, the third King to do so this season--the others were Doug Bodger and Garry Galley--and, perhaps, the one most concerned about it.

After playing his first game as a King at right wing, Russ Courtnall moved to left wing Saturday night against the Dallas Stars at the Forum. Courtnall, who signed as an unrestricted free agent Nov. 7, played on a line with center Yanic Perreault and Glen Murray. According to King Coach Larry Robinson, Courtnall will have to play himself back into game shape after not playing for five weeks.

Sitting, holding his crutches, Kings' winger Russ Courtnall was talking Saturday about the view from the injured list. It's lousy. "You look at [opponents] and their eyes get as big as saucers," said Courtnall, three weeks into rehabilitation for a broken ankle, suffered when he stopped a puck with his boot at San Jose on Nov. 18. "They want to take advantage of teams that are struggling like we are." And take advantage they do.

So much for the offensive exploits of Russ Courtnall, who came back after an injury, moved into a strong scoring line with Luc Robitaille and Jozef Stumpel, had a goal and an assist in his first game and two assists in his fourth and then said adieu to scoring. Pretty much. Courtnall has moved back to a checking line, with center Ian Laperriere and winger Matt Johnson. "Everybody likes offense. That's where the glory is," said Courtnall, who has two goals and five assists in 25 games.

Russ was just a kid, only 13 the summer Archie couldn't live with his demons anymore and made a decision his sons still can't understand, 20 years later. Geoff was a responsible youth, Russ a rebel.
