Huselius Has Been There Before

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

At the tail end of a brief interview following yesterday’s practice, Kristian Huselius was asked if he’d dealt with being a healthy scratch before.

“I did in Florida,” said Huselius, before adding a telling kicker as he walked away to abruptly cut short his first comments on the benching: “with him, so…”

“Him” being coach Mike Keenan, the man who relegated the healthy winger to the press box Tuesday as part of their latest clash in philosophies.

Back in 2003, when the two last worked together, Huselius was, by several accounts, a regular target of the demanding coach despite reaching the 20-goal mark in each of his first two NHL seasons.

Stories of Keenan loudly berating young Huselius for soft or indifferent play still circulate around Miami’s tiny hockey circles.
