Well, the big draft for season 12 of the Moose Hockey League is done. Even though I wasn’t eligible for this draft, being a rookie in the league, I still wanted to see how things went down. Since this draft has a major impact on the MAHL draft. With the new rule in place that did away with MHL and MAHL team-affiliations.
Instead there were three extra rounds at the end of the draft, where team captains could select players they would have the rights to call up from the MAHL should they need them to fill a roster spot for a player who can’t make a game. As I said, even though I wasn’t really involved in this draft, it was still very interesting, and very entertaining, as I was not disappointed.
Hey everyone, sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. I have been very busy preparing myself for the upcoming MAHL draft in the Moose Hockey League. So there has been a lot of NHL 12 playing going on around the clock in an attempt to get my goaltending rank up as high as it can be, and my skills at their best for the scouting games, so I can hopefully end up as an early round pick in the MAHL draft this coming Sunday, when I’ll be entering my rookie season in the Moose.
Myself and my assistant GM for KK’s EASHL Club System had a meeting the other day, to discuss the current status of the Club, as well as how the EASHL itself is looking this year. The conclusion that we both came to is that things kind of suck at the moment. As it’s looking like we are going to end up sending about 95% of the Main Club’s current roster down to the Farm Club for now, since “training camp” is about wrapped up for us.
The EASHL seems to taken a bit of a dive in general this year, as the new Club Cool-down has turned into a doubled edged sword of annoyance. Making it even harder to put a new Club together from scratch, which was already no easy task to begin with. So we decided to look for a decent player-run league to satisfy our own personal needs for some good competitive 6v6 online hockey action. Personally, I had little faith in this, given past things I’ve heard about some player-run leagues.
Then we found the Moose Hockey League.
About Cluster Pucks
Here at Cluster Pucks, you find a little bit of this and a little bit of that, but it’s all hockey. I mostly try and stick to the rather insane task that I’ve given myself of attempting to cover the CHL, NCAA Hockey, as well as the EA Sports Hockey League, in addition to other EA Sports NHL-series related news. So yeah, unless I specifically plan something, you never know what you might get from me on a day to day basis. I tend to write pretty thorough and in-depth posts more often than not that. I can also be pretty opinionated at times, so feel free to disagree with me however you wish, just don’t be surprised when I comment back and keep the discussion going.
Before I came on board here at Kukla’s Korner, I spent 10 years of my life working as a writer and director in the independent film world. I don’t have any sort of formal degree, or hockey writing background other than my work here. Although I’ve always loved hockey and writing, so it seemed like the perfect fit. I’m always eager to hear what the readers think, so if you’ve got a question, comment, idea, whatever, just feel free to email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org

I’m also the General Manager of KK’s EASHL Club System (Xbox 360), which is always looking for new talent, so if you think you’ve got what it takes to run with some serious and talented EASHL players, feel free to contact me over Xbox Live. My gamertag is Doug IVI (that’s eye vee eye at the end). Just include KK in your message, so I can help sort out the junk messages.
