Good morning folks. It is my pleasure to bring yet another e-mail interview to Kukla’s Korner readers - this time from Tyler McKinna of NHL Digest.
Tyler was kind enough to tell us about how he got into the game of hockey, who is favorite team/player was growing up, how he came up with and helped develop NHL Digest along with his thoughts on the current season.
PH: How did you first get into hockey?
TM: I started playing hockey at the age of 5. I grew up in a small town in Manitoba, Canada and there wasn’t much going on other than hockey in the winter…And, I just happened to live right across the street from the rink!
PH: Growing up, who was your favorite team? How about your favorite player?
TM: No question about it. From day one it has always been the Montreal Canadiens. Mats Naslund was my favorite player growing up. Why Mats with all of the storied Hall of Famers in the history of the Habs? Well, he just happened to be the leading scorer for the Canadiens when I first seriously started watching hockey and I admired his skill and ability for a player his size.
