Kukla's Korner Hockey
Entries with the tag: kk challenge
Kukla’s Korner has launched a contest today at 99designs.com, inviting our artistic-minded hockey friends from around the internet to design a great new logo for the website
There’s a $200 prize for the best logo and we intend to implement the winning entry into KK’s new website design coming later this summer (with the hard work of Kevin at Venn Communications, I should add).
All the details can be read in the brief. Contest closes in 7 days.
Note: submissions must be submitted via 99designs.com. Please don’t email them to us directly as they will not qualify for the prize.
Before the playoffs started, KK announced a contest asking for members to guess the number of goals to be scored in this year’s playoffs, with a tie-breaker to be determined by shutouts. It turned out, we needed the tie breaker.
Results: The total number of goals scored was 456 and there were 13 shutouts. [Information verified using statistics provided by NHL.com, Yahoo! Sports and ESPN.] There was a tie for the closest guess: 455 and 457. However the winner (457) also nailed the shutouts exactly at 13.
Which means a big congratulations to Laura123! Laura will be winning a Rbk EDGE Authentic Jersey representing the NHL team of her choice.
Both winners will be contacted within 48 hours. Thanks to everyone for playing..
*Our thanks to Dave82, who did a great job keeping track of the narrowing list of candidates in contention for the jersey throughout the playoffs
Last week we put up a last minute contest for THREE gift certificates of $50 (for IceJerseys.com or shop.NHL.com) to be given away in a random draw. To enter the contest, some KK members were brave enough to share their favorite—and/or weirdest—hockey superstitions and rituals. Quite entertaining.
Winners will be contacted by email within 48 hours. They are:

Thank you to everyone for participating—the entries were great and it was good to be reminded there are other people are as nuts as we are.
April 8th 11:59pm ET: Contest Closed. Good luck!
Here is your chance to win a Rbk EDGE Authentic Jersey of your choice!
First off, you need to be a KK member (registration is free) and tell us the following:
How many total goals will be scored in the 2008 NHL Playoffs. Then, and for tie-breaking purposes only, give us the number of shutouts that will be registered during the 2008 NHL Playoffs.
Simple as that and your entry must be submitted in the comments of this post (no emails accepted). If a tie still remains from the winning entries, a random drawing will be held to select the winner.
Additional prizes will be awarded too, by doing a few random drawings of all entries.. Those prizes will be announced soon.
All entries must be timestamped no later than 11:59pm ET on April 8, 2008.
Update April 4th: Another Prize!
A one-year subscription to the digital edition of The Hockey News! Winner will be decided by a random draw chosen from all the entries. (*Meanwhile, check out a trial version THN digital edition)
note: This post on occasion will be moved to the top of page until April 8th. Original post was April 2nd at 2:37pm.
Update April 8th: Comments Problem
For some reason, comments aren’t showing up from the most recent handful of people who have entered the contest. We are working to fix this now. Meanwhile, please note that we are keeping track of those missing entries. They will be added to the comments below as soon as we figure out the technical glitch. (Update again: Problem fixed!)
Update April 8th 11:59pm ET: Contest Closed. Good Luck, Everyone!
And so, our official winners are:
- The Alexander Ovechkin Jersey goes to blueleafss who guessed closest to the correct time of the 60th goal.
- The Alexander Ovechkin Special Edition DVD goes to jsginsocal, who won it by a random draw from all the entries.
Both winners will be contacted by email in the next 48 hours. Thanks for playing, everyone.
Watch for the next Kukla’s Korner Challenge coming on April 2nd… we’ll have more fun stuff to give away to KK members (‘cause unfortunately, Paul won’t let me keep the swag for myself)!
This morning, I was reading this thread of people’s favorite personal hockey stories. This one gave me a laugh:
At a game between Cal State Northridge and Sacramento State while the refs were sorting out the penalties, Bryan Adam’s song ‘Everything I do (I do it for you)’ was playing over the PA system.
CSUN’s goalie takes his helmet off and starts doing some figure skater styled jumps (in full goalie gear) while belting the song out at the top of his lungs.
Anyway, it got me thinking about whether any KK members have a short-and-sweet hockey story they’d like to tell? If so, feel free to tell it in the comments of this post and I’ll do a random draw of all the entries on Friday at 12 noon (ET) for a $25 gift certificate to Ice Jerseys.com.
Just be sure you’re logged into your member account when you leave your comment entry. (And if you’re not a member, you can register here quick and easy).
P.S. I reserve the right to completely disregard bad entries… “I went to a game and saw a fight” doesn’t count! (Well, unless it involves cheerleaders, or something…)
