Kukla's Korner Hockey

You can hear the sound of his skates slicing across the ice, carving and slashing as he builds up speed and executes tight turns.
That sound is accompanied by the echo of a frozen disk being jiggled at the end of a long stick, and occasionally fired against the wooden boards that surround the ice rink.
It’s a sound that resonates throughout Canadian cities every winter.
The sport is hockey.
Here, it’s never referred to as “ice hockey”. It’s just “hockey” and it’s Canada’s favourite game.
