Kukla's Korner Hockey

Aound The League

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun,
Here's one the deep thinkers at the league office have not addressed. Many players, especially Europeans, love to use sticks with blades shaped like fish hooks. They're quite illegal, but in the first and second periods no one ever checks. But NHL rules say that no coach can call for a stick measurement in overtime. So when the shootouts start, check the curves on some of the sticks. They won't be close to legal but nothing can be done about it.
