Kukla's Korner Hockey

Thrashers forward Eric Boulton has never been a clean player. Several times in his career, he has delivered cheap shots, and his knee-to-knee hit on the Lightning’s Nate Thompson last week was flat-out dirty. Boulton defended himself, saying the hit was not intentional. That’s fine, he has that right. But he also said, “Who’s Nate Thompson?’‘
This, coming from a guy with 25 goals in 508 career NHL games. The only reason anyone knows his name is because it comes up every so often after one of his dirty hits. It would have been a bush-league thing to say even if a star such as Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin had said that. But Boulton? Who’s Eric Boulton?
