Kukla's Korner Hockey

Good Stock & Good Fortune

from Allan Maki of the Globe and Mail,

The farmyard rink is pretty much gone now. The chain-link fencing that kept stray pucks in play and the wooden poles that held the outdoor lights have been taken down. Only a few rotten boards remain on the rich northwestern Ontario soil that lies near the slope of Candy Mountain.

“There’s really nothing there,” Linda Staal says of the rink her husband built. Besides, she has a couple of sick boys at home. Sore throats. “Let’s go somewhere else for a coffee,” she suggests.

And with that, Henry and Linda Staal, parents to a Stanley Cup champion, two world champions, a two-time world junior champion and a promising forward in the Ontario Hockey League, sit down with a reporter in a setting so suited to their lifestyle it could be put to canvas and entitled Canadian Gothic.
