Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,
Given what Cody Hodgson means to both the present and the future of the Vancouver Canucks, there was a good deal of talk and thought this summer put towards turning around the rough start this terrific NHL prospect has experienced so far.
The Canucks coaches and management have held several conversations with the Hodgson camp — which now includes his personal coach Claude Lemieux, if you can call him that — and whether or not the club agrees 100 per cent with this new initiative and all it might one day involve, it certainly has the player stoked and ready to try to have his best training camp ever.
“I am really excited to be completely healthy again, strong and really looking forward to camp,” said Hodgson, who will come into town right after Labour Day.
“It’s been the best summer in a long time for me and I’m coming in as ready as I can be to help regardless of the roster, what positions are open or not or what the coach is thinking. It’s his job to make those decisions and my job to be the best player I can be no matter where I’m used.”
