At this stage of Steve Heinze's career, nothing really surprises him. After starting the season with Manchester of the American Hockey League and then watching several of his teammates get recalled before the Kings called him back up on Nov. 28, Heinze has watched the Kings go 8-12-1-0 over their last 21 games heading into Monday's game against San Jose.

In their first effort to replace the scoring and power-play production they lost when Luc Robitaille signed with Detroit, the Kings on Tuesday signed unrestricted free-agent right wing Steve Heinze to a three-year deal worth $6 million. Heinze, 31, began last season with the expansion Columbus Blue Jackets and played 65 games for them before he was traded to the Buffalo Sabres March 13.

After spending time in the minors for the first time in his career, veteran forward Steve Heinze is trying to make the most out of his second chance with the Kings, who recalled him from Manchester of the American Hockey League on Thursday. "I thought they would trade me, which would have been preferable to being [sent to the minors], but that didn't happen," said Heinze, who played well in consecutive games against the Mighty Ducks and Chicago over the weekend.

Coach Andy Murray didn't take long to make his first decision after rejoining the Kings: Steve Heinze, take a seat. Heinze is tied for third on the team with 15 goals, but after going 17 games since scoring his last on Jan. 15, the winger was scratched from the lineup for Thursday's game against Nashville, sitting out for the first time this season. "We're just trying to see if we can create a little more productivity," said Murray, who inserted Nelson Emerson into Heinze's spot on the No.

Three times this season the Kings have recalled a forward from the minors and three times it has not been Steve Heinze. The latest was Michael Cammalleri, a 20-year-old rookie who made his NHL debut in Friday night's 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators. Heinze, guaranteed $2 million this season as part of a three-year, $6-million contract he signed as an unrestricted free agent in July 2001, remains with the Kings' American Hockey League team at Manchester, N.H.

Center Bryan Smolinski has not scored a goal in his last 26 games, right wing Steve Heinze in his last 25. Their lack of production hasn't crippled the Kings, who are 13-7-3-2 since Heinze scored his 15th goal Jan. 15 against Nashville, 12-7-3-2 since Smolinski scored his 12th Jan. 17 against Buffalo. But Coach Andy Murray fears it might catch up with the Kings. "We actually haven't needed them to score," Murray said.

Steve Heinze was tied for the club lead with Adam Deadmarsh when he scored his 15th goal in a 2-0 victory over the Nashville Predators on Jan. 15. Since then, Deadmarsh has scored 10 goals, Heinze none. Heinze's drought reached 18 games Saturday at Denver when the right wing failed to score in the Kings' 4-3 loss to the Colorado Avalanche. Two nights earlier, Heinze had been scratched at Nashville. "Yeah, I was surprised," Heinze said of his benching.

Making decisions like the ones he made Monday is never easy for Coach Andy Murray, who assigned veteran Steve Heinze and youngsters Derek Armstrong and Ryan Flinn to Manchester in the American Hockey League. "The very, very hard decisions are the ones that bother you as a coach," said Murray, who called Monday's 90-minute practice one of the best since the Kings' opened training camp last month.

Steve Heinze was not claimed in Friday's NHL waiver draft, no surprise to the Kings but probably not what they wanted to hear. Signed to a three-year, $6-million contract as an unrestricted free agent in July 2001, Heinze, 32, scored 15 goals last season, ranking fourth on the team, but none after Jan. 15. He ended the season with a 27-game goal-scoring drought and was used sparingly in the latter part of the regular season and the playoffs.

Steve Heinze knows fans will compare and contrast no matter what he does. But, Heinze said Wednesday, he is not coming to the Kings to replace Luc Robitaille. "I hope they don't compare me with Lucky Luc," Heinze said during a conference call Wednesday. "I know everyone out there loved him. I know they brought me in to score goals and fill some offensive shoes. But I'm not in Luc's class as a prolific scorer. I set the bar high for myself, but I can't set it at Luc's level."

Rekindling memories of their magical spring playoff run, the Kings kept battling back Thursday night and pulled out an improbable 6-5 victory over the St. Louis Blues in front of 19,565 at the Savvis Center. The Kings, avoiding what could have been their worst start to a season since 1994-95, didn't play particularly well but played with incredible determination, overcoming deficits of 2-0, 3-1, 4-2 and 5-4. They scored four goals in the last 15 minutes 15 seconds.
