Yutaka Fukufuji is ready to ride the buses in hockey's backwaters a few more years if that's what it takes to make the NHL. The Japanese goaltender signed a two-year contract with the Los Angeles Kings this month and will attend a rookie camp next month. "My goal is to play in the NHL," Fukufuji said at a news conference Thursday. "I know it will be tough, but I'm ready for rookie camp and I'm looking forward to taking on my rivals." While some have likened Fukufuji to baseball's Hideo Nomo, the soft-spoken goalie has other things on his mind than being a pioneer.
