Defenseman Derek Forbort , the Kings' 2010 first-round draft pick, was so eager to attend their summer development camp that he paid his way and shelled out for his hotel and meals. He had to do all that, actually, because he plans to return for a second season at the University of North Dakota and NCAA rules prohibit players from taking any extra benefits. "It kind of stinks," he said of paying all the bills, "but it's worth being here. It's good to get a little better taste of what the pro game is like and trying to adjust to it.

Call it serendipity. North Dakota has lacked scheduled air service between its major cities since deregulation more than a decade ago. Training facilities for pilots are virtually nonexistent in Taiwan. The university has a degree program to teach flying.
