Stephen Thomas, the Chicago Blackhawks' left winger, was arrested late Sunday and charged with public lewdness after allegedly urinating on a back wall of the Buffalo police headquarters, police said yesterday. Thomas, 24, did not play in Chicago's 5-3 loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night. Officer Sharon Grande said she was on her way into the headquarters about 11:40 p.m. when she spotted the player in the parking area behind the building. Grande said that she initially told the man that he was welcome to use the restroom inside the building but that he responded that he was "just fine" where he was. The officer said she then told Thomas that what he was doing was considered public lewdness.

The Flyers continued to fill out their training-camp and minor-league roster yesterday, signing right winger Steven King. King scored 40 goals for the Baltimore Bandits of the American Hockey League last season, and added two more with the NHL's Anaheim Mighty Ducks in seven games. The 6-foot 195-pounder turned 27 on Monday. He was signed to a one-year, two-way contract, because he'll likely spend part of the season with the Philadelphia Phantoms, the Flyers' new AHL affiliate.

The Minnesota North Stars traded left winger Brian Bellows, their all-time leading goal scorer, to the Montreal Canadiens yesterday for right winger Russ Courtnall. Both players are former first-round draft picks. Bellows was the second choice overall when the North Stars selected him in 1982, and Courtnall was the seventh overall when Toronto chose him in 1983. Bellows, who turns 28 today, had 30 goals and 45 assists for 75 points in 80 games last season. Courtnall, 27, appeared in only 27 games with Montreal last season, scoring seven goals and adding 14 assists.

The NHL suspended Anaheim Ducks right winger Corey Perry for four games without pay for a high, late check on Minnesota's Jason Zucker. Zucker was leveled Tuesday by a violent hit from Perry nearly a full second after he passed the puck. Montreal wins shootout Shootout goals by Alex Galchenyuk and Lars Eller lifted the Montreal Canadiens to their fourth consecutive win Wednesday night, a 4-3 victory over the visiting Ottawa Senators. Eller also scored in the first period, and Brendan Gallagher and P.K. Subban added power-play goals in the second for Montreal.

In a move that may suggest something larger to come, the Flyers acquired Patrick Thoresen off waivers yesterday from the Edmonton Oilers. A 24-year-old left winger who has barely two years of NHL experience, Thoresen has played 17 games this season with two goals and one assist. He played 68 games in Edmonton last year as a rookie. Is he the answer to stopping the Flyers' nine-game losing streak? "Our guys like him," general manager Paul Holmgren said. "I think he can help us right now. We have a lot of injuries.

The Flyers announced yesterday the signing of left winger Ryan Ready, an unrestricted free agent from the AHL, to a one-year contract. Ready, 25, who has never played in the NHL in a five-year professional career, split time in the AHL with the Manitoba Moose and the Worcester IceCats last season. In 80 regular-season games, he tallied nine goals and 23 assists for 32 points, and also had 65 penalty minutes. He began with the Moose, an affiliate of the Vancouver Canucks, and then was dealt to the St. Louis Blues' organization and assigned to Worcester.

Nik Zherdev was chosen fourth overall, by Columbus, in the deep 2003 NHL draft. The right winger was selected ahead of Thomas Vanek and Zach Parise. Ahead of Jeff Carter and Mike Richards. Ahead of Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. And several others who are now high-quality NHL players. Thursday, he was demoted to the Flyers' fourth line during their practice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. Two games ago, he was removed from the power-play unit. That explains why Zherdev, who has been upset that he's averaging only about 12 1/2 minutes per game, was not a happy camper Thursday; he refused to talk with reporters.

At 25, Matt Read was considered an "old" rookie when he led all first-year NHL players with 24 goals last season. Now the unflappable Flyers winger is hoping his experience and relatively old age for a second-year player will help him avoid the proverbial sophomore jinx. "Hopefully being more mature and older than most [in this position], I can withstand the pressure and try to be a top player in this league," Read, now 26, said after taking part in the Flyers' informal practice Thursday at their Voorhees training facility.

Former Buffalo Sabres forward J.P. Dumont yesterday agreed to a 2-year, $4.5 million free-agent contract with the Nashville Predators. The 28-year-old right winger became an unrestricted free agent when the Sabres exercised their walkaway rights after he was awarded a $2.9-million, 1-year deal in arbitration. Dumont, who made $1.596 million last season, has 121 goals and 135 assists in 434 NHL games with Chicago and Buffalo. He had 20 goals and 20 assists in 54 games last season.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - The Flyers recalled left winger Harry Zolnierczyk from the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms and put him into the lineup Tuesday night in Winnipeg, hoping he can awaken a sleepy offense. Zolnierczyk isn't exactly a prolific scorer, but he brings some much-needed quickness to a team that, entering Tuesday, had produced a total of nine goals in its six road losses. A year ago, Zolnierczyk collected six points in 37 games with the Flyers. He had nine goals and eight assists in 46 games with the Phantoms this season.

The Flyers re-signed winger Jason Akeson on Wednesday and traded winger Tye McGinn to San Jose. They also added a pair of unrestricted free agents - defenseman Nick Schultz and winger Andrew Gordon - who figure to be spare parts next season. Late Wednesday night, the Flyers also signed unrestricted free agent Zack Stortini, a 6-4, 214-pound forward, to a one-year, two-way deal. Stortini, 28, led the AHL with 299 penalty minutes last season. Yes, it was a busy day for new general manager Ron Hextall.

AFTER STRIKING gold last summer with free-agent forward Michael Raffl, the Flyers have once again turned to Sweden in an attempt to fill a hole on their roster. The Flyers announced the signing of French left winger Pierre-Edouard Bellemare to an NHL contract yesterday, according to general manager Ron Hextall. Bellemare, 29, is a native of Paris. He has spent the last five seasons skating in Sweden's top league with Skelleftea AIK, capturing two consecutive championships. Bellemare likely stood out to the Flyers' scouting staff last month at the world championships, when he skated alongside Dallas Stars forward Antoine Roussel.

Hatch, 24, is the second player from Union in the Flyers' organization, joining highly touted defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere. Hatch had 13 goals this season, then added four more in the postseason.

ROSS LONSBERRY arrived in Philadelphia from sunny California on Jan. 28, 1972, as part of a seven-player deal from the Kings, the largest trade in NHL history at the time. He wasn't all that thrilled with the trade. "The travel is brutal for any player in LA, but other than that, I loved the West Coast," Lonsberry told reporters then. "I'd be lying if I said the weather didn't make me lose interest at times - not during a game, but maybe at 8 in the morning when I had to get up for practice.

After missing three games with an unspecified lower-body injury, Vinny Lecavalier returned to the Flyers' struggling lineup Thursday night against the visiting New York Rangers and was shifted to right wing. Lecavalier had been centering the second line, and he was moved to the first unit to try to ignite the goalless Claude Giroux. "I think they can get each other going," Flyers coach Craig Berube said before the game. "Center is my natural position - I've always been there - but I feel very comfortable on the right side," said Lecavalier, who began the night seven assists shy of 500 for his career.

CHICAGO - Patrick Kane and the Chicago Blackhawks have that look again, and another Stanley Cup is within reach. Kane scored two goals, Corey Crawford made 24 saves and the Blackhawks beat the Boston Bruins, 3-1, on Saturday night to take a three-games-to-two lead in the Finals. Kane had a terrific postseason when Chicago won it all in 2010, including the winning score in a 4-3 overtime victory in Philadelphia that secured the title. Now he's picking up steam as the Blackhawks move closer to another championship, collecting seven goals in the last seven games.

Flyers winger Jake Voracek looked outside the locker room and pointed toward the league standings that hung on the opposite wall. The playoffs are still in reach, said Voracek, who noted that the Flyers were just five points out of the Eastern Conference's eighth and final postseason spot Thursday. That's a rather positive outlook for a Flyers team that has dropped five of its last seven games. Three of the losses came to division opponents. In the midst of a five-day break before they face the Penguins Sunday in Pittsburgh, the Flyers displayed a new look at Thursday's two-hour practice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees.

The Flyers again went to their past in an attempt to improve their future. They acquired veteran left winger Simon Gagne from the Los Angeles Kings for a conditional 2013 fourth-round draft pick that was acquired from Phoenix. If the Flyers make the playoffs, the Kings will receive a third-round pick. "I'm going back to a place I'm really familiar with," said Gagne, who spent 10 years with the Flyers, "and I'm really excited to get back to Philly. " "He improves our depth up front automatically," said general manager Paul Holmgren, revealing that winger Tye McGinn suffered a broken orbital bone in a fight with Toronto's Mike Brown on Monday and will miss at least two weeks.

The Flyers' inconsistent early season was demonstrated clearly by the results within a 24-hour period earlier this week. After posting one of their most impressive and surely one of the most exciting performances of the season in a 6-5 win on Wednesday at Pittsburgh, the Flyers laid a giant egg in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Florida Panthers at the Wells Fargo Center. One great performance followed by a clunker. That pretty much has described the Flyers' season, which is why they are 8-10-1.
