Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Star Tribune,
It’s 6:40 p.m. on a Thursday night, and Gary Harker has settled into his familiar spot in another corner of another dimly lit high school hockey rink.
All his tools are ready to go. He’s got his notebook—the contents of which might tip the future of an NHL hopeful in one direction or another—and his bag of arena popcorn.
“This is my supper,” he says. “I don’t eat the hot dogs.”
Most think of Harker and the three other NHL scouts in Edina’s Braemar Arena as sports’ version of super-spies, shadowy figures in dark coats recording secret observations and disappearing from the back rows of the stands.
