Forward Vitali Yachmenev was traded by the Kings to the expansion Nashville Predators on Tuesday for future considerations. Yachmenev, who finished tied for second in NHL rookie scoring in the 1995-96 season with 53 points, spent three seasons with the Kings and never came close to the numbers he put up in his first season. The right wing played only four games with the Kings last season, spending much of the season with the Long Beach Ice Dogs of the International Hockey League.

Not too long ago, Vitali Yachmenev's hockey future with the Kings seemed secure. As a rookie in 1995-96, he emerged as one of the team's top scorers when he finished tied for second among NHL first-year players with 53 points. But his stock dropped after he struggled to score only 32 points last season. It dropped even further when, as a restricted free agent, he decided to sit out this season's training camp and wait for a better offer from the Kings.

For the last two days, unsigned right wing Vitali Yachmenev has worked out at Glacial Garden in Lakewood, which may mean an agreement with the team is close. King General Manager Dave Taylor said that although he has not talked this week with Yachmenev's agent, Vlad Shushkovsky, he is encouraged to know that Yachmenev skated Wednesday with the Long Beach Ice Dogs of the International Hockey League, who will be affiliated with the Kings this season.

Instead of recalling right wing Vitali Yachmenev to help their struggling offense Wednesday, the Kings brought up goaltender Jamie Storr from the Long Beach Ice Dogs. Storr, the seventh overall pick in the 1994 draft, had been playing in the International Hockey League since Oct. 28 and had a 6-1-1 record in eight starts. Frederic Chabot, 1-2-2 with the Kings, was sent down to the IHL and will rejoin the Houston Aeros, with whom he played last season.

Continuing one of the successful experiments from last season, Coach Larry Robinson reunited his all-Russian line for Wednesday's scrimmage. Vladimir Tsyplakov, Vitali Yachmenev and Dimitri Khristich were so dominating that when the score reached 8-1, the scrimmage was stopped and the gang was split up to make things a little more even.
