Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Bakersfield Californian via the ECHL,
When Josh Liebenow first heard about the Asia League, one of his first thoughts was: “There’s hockey in Asia?”
Then he went through a tryout in Calgary. Then he got a passport. Then, suddenly, he landed in Seoul, South Korea to play for Kangwonland.
“It was different,” the Condors right wing said. “It was definitely a life-changing experience.”
After he got off the plane and stepped onto the streets of Seoul, the first thing Liebenow noticed was the traffic.
“They don’t have any rules over there,” Liebenow said. “They’ll have scooters driving right down the sidewalk. You get on the subway, you can’t move and all you hear is Korean being spoken.”
