Kukla's Korner Hockey

Afternoon Line- Liam Kirk

"I have to admit it was very emotional and a bit overwhelming when I first heard, it was probably one of the best feelings I've ever experienced. Even when it got to the seventh round and I hadn’t been picked I was getting a bit more nervous and anxious. "But, when it finally happened, it was amazing. I don’t really care what round it came in or which pick it was, I just wanted to be drafted and now it’s all about what I do after the draft."

- Liam Kirk, a 7th round pick by the Arizona Coyotes and the first English-born and trained player to be drafted.  More from Phil Harrison of the Yorkshire Post.
