Kukla's Korner Hockey

When he arrived at the Xcel Energy Center for the Coyotes' preseason game with the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night, Brett Hull was unshaven, bleary-eyed and sipping a cup of coffee, thanks to a 5 a.m. arrival in the Twin Cities. Hull struggled in his first game, shooting only once and losing Pierre-Marc Bouchard after he skated to the bench when the Coyotes iced the puck. A new rule prohibits teams from changing lines during icing. An official pulled Hull back on the ice, but he couldn't chase Bouchard down and watched the 21-year-old one-time a pass for Minnesota's second goal. He spent the TV timeout following the goal on his hands and knees. Hull lashed out at NHL Executive Vice President Colin Campbell when asked about him before the game, saying, "the league needs to get guys like him out and bring in people who have positive attitudes."
