Kukla's Korner Hockey

It is with great pleasure to announce Kukla's Korner has formed a partnership with Shnarped, which connects hockey fans to their favorite professional hockey players across mobile applications. Fans can track player news, stats, tweets, highlights and actually interact with many of the players themselves right on the app.
Shnarped connects fans to their favorite teams and players by way of a social platform. Over 1,000 NHL players and prospects are using the platform to connect with fans and one another. An unrivalled stream of news, stats, and highlights from all the pro, college, and junior leagues in North America can be customized, allowing users to always see the content most important to them. The core interactive feature - the pound - allows fans of all ages to congratulate the athletes and celebrate alongside their successes and players can respond in kind. This season more hockey fans have received messages from NHL players on Shnarped than on Twitter. The app can be downloaded for free at www.shnarped.com.
Dustin Sproat, Cofounder of Shnarped, had this to say:
We are very pleased to have the opportunity to partner with Paul Kukla and Kukla's Korner. KK has been a reliable source of hockey information since the dawn of the sports-blogging era, and Paul's strong contributors and large hockey audience offer excellent opportunities for collaboration. Shnarped is a safe environment for players, teams, and fans of all ages, therefore Paul's tradition of promptly reporting on credible news as opposed to generating rumours and manufacturing controversies was paramount to our decision to partner.
Kyle Hagel, Shnarped Cofounder and member of the AHL's Portland Pirates, commented:
Kukla's Korner is a well respected blog among players and fans. At Shnarped, we have a great player network and we hope our new relationship will lead to some new and exciting content for readers.
What does this mean to you, the KK members and readers?
Shnarped's membership base of NHL players and prospects will allow KK to create more content involving players. Expect to see 'player-of-the-week' type interviews, and feel free to offer suggestions for future articles by tweeting either @kuklaskorner or @shnarped. I encourage all to get involved and report back on your interaction with the players.
I have sent my first 'fist pound' to Danny DeKeyser and hope to hear back from him soon, but I do know he is quite busy in Minsk at the World Championship these days.
