Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Bob McManaman at The Arizona Republic,
Rick Tocchet is calling himself an unlucky rabbit’s foot, noting that the Coyotes are 0-3 since his return behind the bench after a two-year suspension for his involvement in a gambling investigation.
Coyotes coach Wayne Gretzky went golfing with Tocchet on Tuesday and said their golfing buddies are calling Tocchet something even worse.
“Schleprock. Bad Luck Schleprock,” Gretzky said, referring to a character in the Flintstones cartoon series.
But Gretzky is as thankful as anyone that Tocchet is back and serving on the Coyotes’ coaching staff again. Tocchet is not only an extra set of eyes in practices and games, but his personality helps the team.
