Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Katie Strang of Newsday,
...as much as Islanders fans may view him as a sudden miracle of goal-scoring, some apparition that magically materialized in the off-season to invigorate a goal-starved team, Moulson endured a lengthy, arduous, obstacle-riddled road to his current success as the team’s top-line left wing and leading goal-scorer.
His circuitous route to the NHL took its first detour more than ten years ago, when Moulson - criticized for his size [he’s now 6-1, 206] and skating - was cut at every single Triple-A and junior hockey team tryout he attended.
Moulson shrugged off the rejections.
