Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
Matt Cooke and Jordan Staal are not finished with one another yet.
Two-thirds of the Penguins’ former “Nightmare Line” (along with Tyler Kennedy), Cooke and Staal will join Penguins forward Joe Vitale on a humanitarian trip Haiti.
Cooke, Vitale and Staal — the latter spent seven seasons with the Penguins before being traded to Carolina on June 22 — will join team chaplain Brad Henderson from Tuesday through Thursday in Port au Prince, where Henderson’s Pittsburgh Kids Foundation has helped fund two orphanages.
“As professional athletes, we’ve been given the opportunity to give back,” Cooke said. “Shame on us if we don’t.”
