Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Carroll Rogers in tomorrow’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution,
Dr. Michael Stuart was on the phone with the oldest of four hockey-playing children — Mike, who plays in Austria. They were just chatting when the cheering started from 10 friends and family members gathered at the Stuarts’ home in Rochester to watch the Thrashers on TV.
“Oh my gosh, Colin just went end-to-end,” Dr. Stuart said into the phone. He proceeded to break down the play for Mike, which ended with a back-handed shot past goalie Ryan Miller.
Hockey has been a big deal in the Stuart family for a long time. It’s getting bigger by the day.
Colin, 25, is five games into his NHL career, joining his brother Mark Stuart, 23, who is in his first full season as a defenseman for the Boston Bruins. Mike, 27, who once played in the St. Louis Blues organization, is now playing in Graz, Austria. Their sister Cristin, 21, plays on the women’s team at Boston College. And Michael Stuart, who is an orthopedic surgeon, is the chief medical officer for USA Hockey.
