Kukla's Korner Hockey

Each week Blues veteran defenseman Eric Weinrich will be sharing his thoughts and experiences from the NHL season with fans here at his online journal: In 1988, a young man from Gardiner,Maine, was working construction during the summer. Fresh off the Olympics in 1988, he was ready to return to college at the University of Maine for a third year. After two weeks of minimum wage and 5 a.m. alarms, he got a visit from an old teammate who had just turned pro. After the weekend with his friend, his life changed forever. That young man was me, of course, and here I am writing to you 17 years later. I am honored to have played with and against some of the greatest players who have ever played the game. Take Peter Statsny for example. He was a Slovakian who defected from his country to play in the NHL and became one of the greatest playmakers ever, as well as a hero to hockey players in his homeland.
