Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the News & Observer,
Cullen was scratched from Thursday night’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs because of vision problems stemming from the hit he suffered Dec. 26 at the hands of New York Rangers forward Colton Orr.
“It’s been frustrating, because physically, I feel great,” Cullen said Friday as he watched the Hurricanes practice at the RecZone. “I can practice fine, I can skate, I can handle the puck. I’m just having trouble seeing things on the ice normally.”...
“Hopefully he’ll feel better with time off and will make it back,” Hurricanes coach Peter Laviolette said. “Beyond that, I have no idea.”
Cullen said he has difficulty shifting his focus from near to far, particularly among moving objects. Needless to say, that makes playing the game of hockey difficult.
