Imagine undergoing reconstructive shoulder surgery and working your way back. Then imagine finding out your other shoulder needs surgery too. That's what happened to Steven King, who hasn't played an NHL game in a year-and-a-half. Now he's back again, trying to regain a place with the Mighty Ducks, a team that long ago moved on without him. The good thing for King is that at 26, he still has time to catch up. "Hopefully I have 24-year-old legs and 1-year-old shoulders," he said.

Two of America's top authors, John Irving and Stephen King, made a plea to J.K. Rowling Tuesday not to kill the fictional boy wizard Harry Potter in the final book of the series, but Rowling made no promises. "My fingers are crossed for Harry," Irving said at a joint news conference before a charity reading by the three writers at New York City's Radio City Music Hall.

Steven King couldn't score goals, so the Mighty Ducks scratched him and stuck him in the press box. He couldn't score from there, either, and felt twice as frustrated. He wondered what was going on, what had happened to his game. The Ducks, who made King the first forward selected in the expansion draft, asked the same questions. A goal-scorer who can't score? Certainly, King ranked as one of the Ducks' biggest disappointments.

Just when you thought it was safe to return to rural America, Stephen King's vampires-among-us novel, "Salem's Lot," is again lurking on television. Gross and engrossing, TNT's two-parter that begins Sunday night is downright spooky. It's also more than a little hokey. Be prepared to wince at lines like "literature has become elitist, like black-light photography" and "she's dead, or undead."

Stephen King doesn't have the literary reputation of Philip Roth or Arthur Miller, but now all three authors have something in common: an honorary National Book Award for lifetime achievement. King, master of the horror story and e-book pioneer, is receiving this year's medal for Distinguished Contributions to American Letters. The prize, worth $10,000, was announced Monday by the National Book Foundation, a nonprofit organization that sponsors the awards.

The seemingly ever-present dark cloud cleared out long enough Monday afternoon for the Kings and former Boston left wing Kevin Stevens to play some inspired hockey the final 10 minutes of regulation, and it resulted in an inspired third-period comeback as the Kings tied the Bruins, 3-3, at the Forum. Stevens, playing his old teammates for the first time since being traded to the Kings for Rick Tocchet on Jan. 25, started the rally with his 11th goal of the season and first since Jan. 6.

When Bill Hartack, already a member of the Hall of Fame, went to Hong Kong to ride in the early 1970s, it was because of weight and, some thought, the United States revenuers might have been at his door. The five-time winner of the Kentucky Derby was 42 when he left, and no longer commanded the top stock. Gary Stevens had no such problems when he said goodby Santa Anita, hello Sha Tin, this week.

Mighty Duck left wing Steven King, who missed the final two months of last season after undergoing reconstructive surgery on his right shoulder, is scheduled to undergo exploratory surgery on his other shoulder Thursday and might be unable to play this season even if the NHL lockout is resolved.

The Mighty Ducks reached the NHL's new roster limit of 24 players Tuesday by assigning right wing Steven King to minor league affiliate Baltimore and putting defenseman Don McSween on injured reserve. King, trying to return to the NHL after reconstructive surgery on both shoulders, hasn't played in a year and a half. McSween is in the midst of a long rehabilitation after suffering nerve damage when his right wrist was cut by a skate blade last January.
