Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
Perhaps the most compelling and unusual story of the NHL entry draft is unfolding on a Friday afternoon, at a downtown restaurant, as Viktor Tikhonov – the 20-year-old grandson of the legendary Russian hockey coach – is talking about his goals and dreams, in fluent English, without a trace of an accent.
Or if there is an accent, it tends to be from northern California, falling somewhere between Stanford undergrad and radical surfer dude.
This is because the younger Tikhonov – despite his surname and hockey pedigree – is about as American as apple pie.
