The new office is 51 steps and a curtain removed from the old one, down the hall from the visitors' locker room in Staples Center. The Kings have a new guardian, and he is certainly no angel. When Steve McKenna was lost to Minnesota in the NHL expansion draft in June, Stu Grimson's name immediately leaped to the mind of Dave Taylor, the Kings' senior vice president and general manager. He was a free agent and was still in the neighborhood after being set adrift by the Mighty Ducks.

Stu Grimson thinks he aced his sports psychology final, but he's less sure how he did on his computer class final. "It was one of those multiple choice tests," he said. "It was pretty tough." Difficult though it was, it was nothing compared with what he has faced the past year. Grimson, a former Mighty Duck and King who signed with the Nashville Predators in July 2001, has been sidelined for nearly a year because of post-concussion syndrome. He last played Dec.

Stu Grimson comes across as the kind of man children like to climb on. He's the sort of fellow who always seems to be at the center of a room, no matter where he stands. He visits hospitals and runs a hockey camp for Christian athletes. He smiles simply because it's another fine day, asks how you're doing, calls you by name. This is a man known by thousands as "the Grim Reaper?" Indeed it is.

The Kings' season is over, but General Manager Dave Taylor's work goes on. Taylor said Friday he will meet next week with enforcer Stu Grimson, who is eligible for unrestricted free agency, hoping to bring Grimson back next season. Taylor said he wants to keep all of the players who can become free agents July 1, a group that also includes unrestricted Luc Robitaille and Mathieu Schneider.

The few remaining original Mighty Ducks have noticed that their pictures on the dressing-room wall are attached with Velcro. Stu Grimson's portrait came down Tuesday when he was traded to the Detroit Red Wings, and it leaves a blank spot the other players wonder if anyone else can fill. Grimson scored only one goal in two seasons, but more than any other player he was the heart, soul and fist of the Ducks.

The request from management was for a goal from somebody, anybody, as long as he was on the third or fourth Kings' line. There had been too much pressure lately on Ziggy Palffy and Luc Robitaille to do the scoring. Third line: Kelly Buchberger, Bob Corkum, Nelson Emerson. Fourth line: Ian Laperriere, Eric Belanger . . . uh, Stu Grimson. Go figure.

The NHL suspended Chicago Blackhawk wing Stu Grimson for 10 games and scheduled a disciplinary hearing for Toronto's Wendel Clark after a 10-minute brawl between their teams during a melee that erupted in Chicago's 4-0 victory Thursday night. Grimson, Clark and five other players were involved in the ruckus that erupted with 3:46 remaining in the game. There may be action against the other players after O'Neill reviews written reports and a videotape of the game.

Center Bryan Smolinski didn't play Thursday because of back spasms, which began after the Kings' game at Phoenix on Tuesday. The absence of Smolinski and of center Ian Laperriere, who is recovering from a concussion, jumbled the second, third and fourth lines. Eric Belanger took Smolinski's place between Luc Robitaille and Glen Murray, and Steve Kelly replaced Laperriere on the "energy" line between Nelson Emerson and Kelly Buchberger.

Honesty Is the Best Policy Dept.: King winger Stu Grimson was in the right place at the right time in the opening period of the Kings' 4-1 victory Friday night, just in front of Dallas goalie Eddie Belfour when Jere Karalahti launched a shot from beyond the right-wing faceoff circle. Grimson's stick went up. The puck went past Belfour. Goal and a 1-0 King lead. Goal Grimson, his third of the season, came the announcement. "I was surprised," he said.

Stu Grimson, who played for the Mighty Ducks in their inaugural season and parts of three others, signed a one-year, $500,000 contract with the Kings on Thursday. Grimson, 35, earned the same amount last season, finishing with one goal, two assists and 116 penalty minutes in 50 games.

Daryl Evans, the Kings' radio analyst, made good on his last two predictions in the Detroit series. Can he go for the prognosticating hat trick? Evans, who correctly predicted Brendan Shanahan would play for the Red Wings in Game 5 and that Game 6 would be a tight game, said he believes the Kings can ride the adrenaline from their first-round victory and win Thursday's opener against the Avalanche at Denver.

Go figure this one. Or, more properly, these two. Stu Grimson, who scores about as often as Pavarotti raps, sent in his second goal in as many games Saturday night in the Kings' 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers at Skyreach Centre. Saturday's goal came in the second period on a pass from Mattias Norstrom and was relatively conventional when compared to Grimson's goal Thursday night against the Dallas Stars. That one went in off his head and created a prophet.

The reason to activate Rob Blake for Monday night's game at the Arrowhead Pond was obvious. If Blake can play, he plays, and he said a hairline fracture in his lower back would keep him off the ice no longer. If there was any doubt, Blake's goal in the opening period put it to rest. Any questions about the wisdom of his playing were amplified when he skated off at 18:16 of the second period after slamming Matt Cullen into the boards, seconds after meeting Steve Rucchin headup at center ice.

Somehow, some way, Duck enforcer Stu Grimson and his Chicago Blackhawk counterpart, Bob Probert, kept missing each other in two games earlier this season. But much to the delight of the 16,149 fans at the United Center, Grimson and Probert went toe to toe briefly late in the Blackhawks' 4-1 victory Thursday. Probert got the upper hand early when Grimson backed into teammate Jeff Nielsen, who was trying to give the two heavyweights room to fight.
