Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Allan Maki of the Globe and Mail,
They say he skates well, and he does. They say his defensive game is on the upswing, and it is.
And his dancing, it’s something else, too. It’s become a Phoenix Coyotes tradition.
When they win a game, forward Lauri Korpikoski cranks up the music in the dressing room and defenceman Keith Yandle dances to Teach Me How to Dougie. How this started, even Yandle isn’t sure.
But as long as the Coyotes keep winning, he’s okay with it. And the way Yandle has played this NHL season is a significant reason why the Coyotes have overcome their down times – along with those persistent bound-for-Winnipeg rumours – and maintained a playoff presence in the Western Conference.
Yandle, by every measurable, is a James Norris Memorial Trophy candidate.
