Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,
Instructed by former Hockey Night producer John Shannon not to take broadcast courses after being hired, Hrudey’s success stems from being as likable as they come.
“I’m happy with my life,” said the husband and father of three girls. “I used to play hockey, now I talk hockey. The beauty of my job is that as much as I talk to people in the industry, it’s my opinion.”
Over the years, he’s done well to distance himself from his playing brethren to the point he openly criticizes players when warranted.
Unlike the bombastic Don Cherry, Hrudey’s approach is much more measured. Armed with four satellite dishes, eight feeds and endless PVR recordings, Hrudey sits in his Calgary home office during the season watching endless game coverage before hitting the road each weekend.
