Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Macomb Daily,
Pavel Datsyuk is an admitted pass-aholic. He would much rather pass than shoot, rather stick-handle than set up for a one-timer.
Lost in Zetterberg’s remarkable opening—he has a franchise record 15-game point streak from season’s start and leads the NHL in scoring—is that his linemate, Datsyuk, has helped turned the Swede into a sniper.
Entering Thursday night’s games, Datsyuk was third in the NHL with 14 assists in 15 games.
“I like passing,” said Datsyuk. “When somebody scores in an open net after my pass is the best. If somebody says, ‘Would you rather score or have somebody score off your pass?’ ... I’d say pass.”
