Look out Luke Perry, Luc Robitaille is ready for his scene

October 30, 2008 | 11:40 am

Luc Robitaille was made an honorary captain for his final home game with the Kings.

So the Kings won't be handed the Stanley Cup this year. But could an Emmy be in the team's near future?

Luc Robitaille, the team's president of business operations will shoot an episode of "Bones" this week to air in January. Robitaille will appear in a scene with David Boreanaz and will play [drum roll please] ...

... a hockey player, reprising his on-air role from that haunting 2003 NHL promo.

It is a new direction in Robitaille's acting career. He previously appeared in "D2: The Mighty Ducks" and "Sudden Death" (no King fans, the plot doesn't center around the 1993 Stanley Cup Finals). Robitaille played "himself" in both movies.

Still, Robitaille will likely have some memorable repartee with Boreanaz in "Bones," a show about a cynical and lonely forensic anthropologist and an FBI agent who team up to solve long-ago murders.

Luc, it begs a hockey spin-off: "Broken Bones," a show in which a cynical and lonely sportswriter and a cocky hockey enforcer team up to solve on-ice crimes. The entire first season could center on Sean Avery. And Marty McSorley could play the enforcer. As for the cynical and lonely sportswriter, take your pick.
