Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Harford Courant,
Thirty-five players and management types returned to Connecticut for a lobster bake at the farm Friday night and a golf tournament at nearby Willow Brook Golf Course Saturday before a barbecue that included a band playing under one of two tents.
The player gathering was a who’s who of the franchise’s 25 seasons in Boston, Springfield and Hartford, starting with Hall of Famers Ron Francis, who will be inducted Nov. 12, and announcer Chuck Kaiton (2004). Francis, Dineen, Rick Ley and Randy Ladouceur were former captains on hand. Francis, Dineen, Ley and Ulf Samuelsson are four of the six players to have their retired numbers hanging in the Civic Center rafters.
