Medical Leave - Blog on Hold

Hey readers, I just wanted to give everyone the heads up.

I’ve got a bit of a medical issue that has popped up, so I’ll be on medical leave until further notice. It couldn’t really come at a worse time with all the things I’ve got going on at the moment, but these things happen, and sadly there isn’t much I can do about it.

Hopefully I’ll be back and writing soon, but depending on how things go with some tests the next few days, I might be out of commission for several months.

Don’t worry, it’s nothing life-threatening, but serious enough that I’ve got to put several things in my life on hold (like this) for the time being.

Best wishes, Doug. Hope you’re able to keep up in the fantasy hockey league. But more important is your health.

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 doug@kuklaskorner.com

You can also follow me on Twitter at @dougmiller37

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.
