Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun,
Some might call it a bold move for Evander Kane.
As it stands right now, the Winnipeg Jets winger is planning to wear the No. 9 made famous by The Golden Jet, Bobby Hull — provided he can get his permission.
“It’s almost like asking a father for his daughter’s hand in marriage,” Kane told The Vancouver Province. “I’ve read somewhere on Twitter that he had done an interview and said that he wanted me to wear it proudly. I don’t know if that’s true or not. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to speak to him soon. If he doesn’t have an issue with me wearing it, I’ll do my best on and off to live up to wearing that number. If I have to change, I’ll change.”
