Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Jim Matheson at the Edmonton Journal,
“April 17. At 8:30 in the morning,” said [Rob] Daum, who was hired by the Oilers this summer when Craig Simpson left to work for CBC as a commenator on Hockey Night in Canada.
“I was told to bring two weeks worth of clothes. I was told I’d be working with the farm guys in practice,” said Daum. “I was back on the plane to Houston at 10:30 (a.m.).”
Daum realizes that NHL clubs can hire or fire whomever they want. He was glad for the chance to coach at the pro level after being with one of Canada’s best college teams, but didn’t expect to part company with the Wild the way he was. It was a shocker.
