Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,
For Hull, the possessor of the most deadly one-timer in league history, bending his blade—along with the rules—was the difference between an average career and one for the ages.
“I had an illegal stick all the time and it wasn’t so much that I thought I was cheating, but, you know, I wouldn’t have got 300 goals in this league unless I’d had that stick that I used. I couldn’t shoot it without that curve.”
How prevalent is this offense? Go down the list of the league’s top snipers and many of them—including Ilya Kovalchuk, Jaromir Jagr and Teemu Selanne—were nabbed last season with an illegal curve.
thanks to a KK reader for the pointer…
