Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star,
It’s morning. Time to shoot some pucks.
Out walk Clarke MacArthur and John-Michael Liles, to a $100,000 contraption that will let them do just that.
Gone are the days of shooting pucks and denting the garage. Or putting up the fake goalie in the net with the five holes clearly marked.
In this day and age of high tech and every advantage money can buy for a sports team, the Maple Leafs have given their players a new toy: A gadget called RapidShot. Like the batting cage has done for baseball for years — automated thrown balls so a hitter can practise — this machine passes pucks to shooters.
