from Bob Wojnowski of the Detroit News,
Jiri Hudler is happy, almost always. Well, except when he’s rushing to get ready for practice and pops on his helmet without noticing someone loaded it with shaving cream. Or when he sticks his hands in his gloves and is greeted by a poof of baby powder. Or when his dress pants go missing and he has to leave the arena in his hockey Under Armours.
“There’s a couple guys, I won’t mention their names, but they got me really good the last few months,” Hudler said, smiling. “But this is the playoffs now. No more pranks.”
He said it like he meant it, sort of, with a tell-tale grin, not a tattle-tale grin. And then he laughed, which is something Hudler does often, which is why some call him “Happy Hudler,” which doesn’t make him particularly happy.
“Why not something tougher?” he said. “You should call me the Rock or something.”
