Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Thomas LaRocca at NHL.com:
“I was nervous,” O’Ree said of his taping. “I was more nervous than in my NHL debut. I had my lines all down pat and then they changed the script and then changed it again.
“This was my first acting appearance and it was fun; but I would much rather be on the ice playing hockey.”
Spoken like a true hockey player.
Also appearing in the episode was New Jersey Devils goaltender Kevin Weekes. He was also in the scene with O’Ree, helping the two main characters, Drew and Chris, with directions to see the New York Islanders play Wayne Gretzky’s Edmonton Oilers in the early 1980s.
