Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Dianne Finstad at CBC,
For every chuckwagon driver that makes the loop around the track, there’s a real support crew at the barns helping with the large number of tasks involved in the sport. That ranges from looking after the high-spirited horses, to washing the chuckwagon, to mucking out the stalls.
It’s a lifestyle bred into many families, but it attracts others.
The Rae Croteau Jr. outfit has been getting a lot of attention this week because one of the hands around their barn is among the newest members of the Calgary Flames.
Curtis Glencross just signed with the Flames last week, after spending a good chunk of last season with the provincial archrivals up the road, the Edmonton Oilers. But when he’s not stick handling, he loves to be part of the chuckwagon world. It was something he did all last season, and is doing, when he can, this year.
