Kukla's Korner Hockey
The talented DCSportschick is hanging up the keyboard on her hockey blogging life for now:
This blog has been a source of great joy for me, and it’s incredibly hard to give it up. However, I’m faced with other life-changing events on the horizon, and in light of that, it’s time.
You’ll still see me around the rink, around the stadium, around the field. That won’t change; I might not be there as often, but I’ll be there. I’m still a sports fan, after all.
A sad day for her many fans, but our best wishes to her in all her future endeavors.
Many of you know we have a pretty detailed list of many of the hockey related sites on the web.
We have now added an area in the KK Forum where you can point out specific details about your blog or website. Feel free to point to a blog post, but do make sure you do a “soft-sell: too, which will encourage KK readers to click the link!
As always, I also encourage you to point to your blog in the comments here at KK too. If you have something of interest on a post here, by all means let the KK readers know about it.

from On the Forecheck,
Thanks to JavaGeek over at Hockey Numbers for pointing out that the NHL is using a new format for its game report files, starting with last night’s exhibition game between the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings. For hockey stats analysts, this is a bit like Christmas in September; there are some welcome additions to the detailed information presented online after each game, although it will take some work to reconfigure how we pull that data down and bring it into a structured format.
from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,
It has long been suggested the Canadiens are a year-round obsession in Montreal, and, in fact, wherever the team’s fans crop up worldwide to deify or diss their favourite team.
Montreal, as the saying goes, is nine months of winter and three months of poor skating.
Habsinsideout.com, The Gazette’s year-old Canadiens-devoted website, has proven both to be true through an offseason that allegedly began June 6, the morning after the Anaheim Ducks polished off the Ottawa Senators to win the Stanley Cup.

Some brilliant person found clips of 24 goal horns in the NHL and put together a stunning YouTube clip.

In my NHL.com blog today, I choose players who fit in some categories I have come up with.
It is a spinoff of the recent Top 50 Players most of us have read.

Zanstorm from the blog Waiting for Stanley has been very busy this last month, building a one stop location to track down every trade in the NHL since 1960.
The new dedicated site is History of NHL Trades.
Check it out. It’s an incredible resource he’s built there.
I asked Leafer Sutherland to do a little write-up on this after reading about it on a facebook group….
Loren, or better known as ‘Loz’ to those of us on the internet, happens to be a big time Anaheim Ducks fan. And judging by the databases at both theNHLarena and allducks, she has been for quite some time now and well before the Ducks managed to win Lord Stanley’s Cup this past spring, making it a trendier thing to do.
The unique thing about this specific NHL fan is that she lives in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. In fact, she has never set foot on this continent, let alone had the chance to catch an Anaheim game live.
When the news came around that the Anaheim Ducks would face the Los Angeles Kings in London for a 2 game series which would kick off our 07-08 season, the obvious question was, “Hey Loz, are you going to the game?” And unfortunately the answer was “No.”
