Kukla's Korner Hockey
Several weeks ago, readers were invited to submit a photo which they felt best illustrated the spirit of hockey coming into a new season, and now we have a winner: KK member “The Freak” will be receiving a new, $169 pair of Easton Hockey Stealth S11 hockey gloves for his great entry.
We also decided to give out an unplanned second prize to “Jdunc”. His submission titled “Game Face” was taken while dressed up to watch a hockey game at home on the couch, so we’ve thrown in a $25 gift certificate just for fun, to Ice Jerseys.com.
Both winners will be contacted next week, and you can see their submissions below. Our thanks to Easton Hockey for the prize, and we’ll look forward to another contest in a couple weeks.
And of course, thanks to everyone who participated!
I point to the Ducks bloggers in my NHL.com blog today. They are ecstatic and I am jealous.
The winner of the NHL Fathead Contest has also been selected…
I took part in a Detroit Roundtable Discussion hosted by Behind the Jersey. The discussion revolved around what makes Detroit a great sports city and well known Detroit related bloggers participated in the discussion.
Christy broke it down in five parts so you can begin here to find all the different questions asked of the group.
Deadline is 11:59pm EDT tonight to submit your entry to win an NHL Fathead.
Get all the details...
Spector has some UFA talk up today and I will be relaxing just a bit.
We have the NHL Awards Show coming up next week, the NHL Draft and the craziness that is the UFA signing period which begins on July 1st.
KK will also be undergoing a major facelift and a few other surprises too.
Kick back a relax a bit today… I will have the results of the KK Stanley Cup Challenge up sometime in the next few days. It will take some work to tabulate the TOI (time-on-ice) and match them up to all the predictions.
note June 5th. I have extended the deadline to June 7th, 11:59pm EDT, so make sure your email is timestamped before that time.
The original date of this post was May 31st.
Let’s make this short and sweet.
Challenge: Why do you want an NHL Fathead (your choice)?
Tell me, get creative, no limit on your words but longer usually doesn’t work well. Submissions must be emailed to me (please put “FATHEAD” in the subject header of your submission) and timestamped no later than 6:00pm ET on Tuesday, June 5th.
You need to be a KK member (register here, it is free and always will be).
Good luck and now for a little more about Fathead…
Just a quick reminder, you have a chance to win an NHL Fathead… click for all the details.
Post will be sticky until Monday.
This is the big one folks! For a chance to win a replica, customized, new RBK NHL jersey (when available), this is what I need.
Sticky post until game time tonight.
Challenge: What time in the game will the last goal be scored tonight?
