Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Unknown Owner

from the St. Petersburg Times,

Oren Koules showed up at a Los Angeles hockey league about 15 years ago saying he had come to Hollywood to make movies and play hockey. His hair hung down the back of his leather jacket. Player Mike Butters was unimpressed. He noted Koules had “all his Chiclets.” Could a guy with all his Chiclets really play?
Butters hadn’t noticed the dental bridge behind Koules’ lower lip. Koules had lost three Chiclets from a punch he took as a high school dropout trying to fight his way into the National Hockey League. He could play, all right.
Among the three men collectively bidding for ownership of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Oren Koules, 46, is the outsider, the unknown.
