From a distance, Valeri Karpov looks the same. He skates just as swiftly, handles the puck just as easily, makes all the familiar moves on the ice. But up close, it's clear things have changed since he last played for the Mighty Ducks. The jersey isn't the same. Instead of the purple and green colors of the Ducks, Karpov wears a lime-green practice jersey of the Long Beach Ice Dogs.

Forward J.F. Jomphe made his stint on a line with Valeri Karpov and Denny Lambert count with a goal and two assists in the Mighty Ducks' 4-3 exhibition loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night. The game, the first in GM Place, was settled when Jyrki Lumme scored a power-play goal at 11:49 of the third period. Lambert put the Ducks up, 3-2, with a power-play goal at 3:28 of the third. Jomphe, who won a contract after a tryout in 1993, scored and helped set up Karpov's goal.

It has been 16 games and nearly six weeks since winger Valeri Karpov last played, but he could hardly contain his giddiness Tuesday. "Tomorrow is an exciting day for me. Finally, I maybe will be in a game," said a beaming Karpov, who suffered a concussion after a hit by Hartford's Steven Rice Oct. 24. Karpov hasn't played since, though he has been healthy for weeks. "I got hurt when the team was playing not so well.

The Mighty Ducks assigned disappointing rookie right wing Valeri Karpov to minor league affiliate San Diego on Monday and brought up rookie center David Sacco. Karpov, 23, was the Ducks' second-leading scorer in the exhibition season but has not been as effective since the regular season began. After 14 games, he has one goal and two assists and has a plus-minus of minus-10.

Brian Burke, NHL director of hockey operations, will review the tape of Thursday's hit on Mighty Duck winger Valeri Karpov by Hartford's Steve Rice. Rice was not penalized for the first-period check, but the league could still hand down a suspension. Karpov was knocked unconscious by Rice and taken to a Hartford hospital. Tests indicated he suffered a concussion. Karpov had his head and neck checked again by team doctors on Friday. His status is day to day.

The Mighty Ducks say they are close to signing Valeri Karpov, their third-round pick in the 1993 entry draft. "We hope to have the deal done by June," General Manager Jack Ferreira said. "I don't think it's going to be a problem. He's coming over (from Russia) and we'll probably wait until he gets here to sign the contract." Ferreira said the Ducks remain "far apart" in negotiations with Paul Kariya, their top pick.

There is more than one rookie on the Mighty Ducks who waited to sign until after playing in the Olympics at Lillehammer, but Valeri Karpov is not going to command as much attention as Paul Kariya. Still, the right wing is having an outstanding exhibition season, and has stepped onto the first line with Kariya and Anatoli Semenov.

The Mighty Ducks have lost right wing Valeri Karpov for up to three months after he suffered a broken right wrist during Monday's loss to the Colorado Avalanche. Karpov, who was hurt when he was knocked into the boards in the third period, flew home to Anaheim on Tuesday after X-rays taken Monday night revealed multiple fractures of the radius bone in his right arm. "It's a blow, but we've got other people, somebody like Joe Sacco, to step in," Coach Ron Wilson said.

The Mighty Ducks on Monday signed their second- and third-round draft picks from the 1993 entry draft, Valeri Karpov and Nikolai Tsulygin, to multiyear contracts. Terms were not disclosed.

He also competed with Team Russia in the 1993 World Junior Championships and European Junior Tournament.

Incredible as it seems that a rookie could be overdue before he had played five games in the NHL, Valeri Karpov was. Everybody knew it, most of all him. Karpov, one of the best of the Mighty Ducks' crop of rookies, had three goals and two assists in exhibition games back in September, trailing only fellow rookie Paul Kariya. But when the real season started, there might as well have been plexiglass in front of the goal. Known as a finisher, he simply couldn't.
