Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Ken Campbell of the Hockey News,
There is a rather delicious irony in the fact the Phoenix Coyotes are scheduled to host the Florida Panthers Saturday night.
Barring an injury, Olli Jokinen of the Coyotes will play his 735th career game that night against his former team. That appearance will eclipse the all-time dubious NHL record, currently held by former Panthers assistant coach Guy Charron, for most NHL career games played without appearing in a playoff game.
Charron wasn’t aware of the impending history when contacted by The Hockey News Wednesday morning and it’s clear it’s an aspect of his playing career he has grown weary of discussing.
