You don't see this very often from baseball or basketball players. Adam Deadmarsh, forced to retire from the L.A. Kings because of concussions that rendered him unable to skate, phoned up the operator of the LetsGoKings website to leave a message for the local hockey faithful: "Thank you for your support over the years I was there in LA.

The Kings are planning a night to honor Deadmarsh. Unfortunately, the guy brought in to be this year's star, Jeremy Roenick, is shelved with his eleventh on-ice concussion.
