Kukla's Korner Hockey

I was watching the Sens/Caps game last night and noticed Washington goaltender Brent Johnson's mask. On the back, he is honoring his grandfather, hall of famer Sid Abel
. Nice touch Brent.
Sid's #12 hangs from the Joe Louis rafters and he was the center of the famous "Production Line".
After his playing career, Abel was the Wings GM/coach and finished up his hockey career in the radio booth. I ams sure Sid would have said something like this about his grandson's shutout performance last night, "Brent, he are a good player, Bruce."
, Well, at least to me Sid looks like Jack Nicholson. A reader pointed the picture looked alot like Jack, and so it is (see comments for more details).
, While on the topic of Sid, Abel to Yzerman
found a nice piece about some of the Wild players paying tribute to Yzerman.
