Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Kevin Oklobzija of the Democrat and Chronicle,
On Monday, the 38-year-old Nylander was skating in a Rochester Americans practice sweater at Blue Cross Arena at the Community War Memorial….
“My goal is to get back to the NHL,” he said.
So that’s why the Stockholm native agreed to join the Amerks (well, that and his $3 million contract, of which about $2.9 million will be paid by the Capitals).
The Capitals don’t want him any more, nor did they want him to take away playing time from their prospects with the AHL’s Hershey Bears.
“They didn’t think I was a good fit for the team,” Nylander said of his NHL roster spot.
“I just want to play hockey.” That’s why he was out on the ice early on Monday.
