Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Vail Daily,
Greg Pankewicz has ridden more dilapidated buses than he cares to remember.
He’s skated on ice rutted with potholes thanks to incompetent Zamboni drivers, played on teams rumored to be relocating, earned meager pay and taken so many punches and high sticks to the face that he’s running out of places for scars.
Yet Pankewicz wouldn’t change a shift in his 17 years of playing minor league hockey.
“The life of a minor leaguer isn’t all that glamorous,” said Pankewicz, now with the Colorado Eagles of the Central Hockey League. “But I’ve had a good ride.”
