Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Prince George Citizen,
He’s forgotten more stories than most people can tell.
An hour spent in a rink sitting next to Daryl Lubiniecki is time wisely invested—enough yarns to weave a coat of many colours.
Lubiniecki’s tales involve big names and they span generations. Now 66, the director of hockey operations for the Prince George Cougars is presiding over his 35th Western Hockey League camp. Add in his own time as a junior player and as a pro, and Lubiniecki has been intimately involved in 50 fall hockey training camps….
The NHL, minors and junior are littered with people who learned at least some of what they know under Lubie. Mike Babcock, Habscheid, Dave Lewis, Brown, Todd McLellan, Trent Yawney, Lane Lambert, Bruce Hamilton, Lorne Molleken and Donn Clark, to name but a few, all worked under Lubiniecki at some point in their careers, some as players, some as coaches.
