Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Dan Hickling of the Journal Tribune,
A towering presence at 6-foot-8 and 250 pounds, (Peter) Worrell was all muscle and mayhem, and in a seven year NHL stay with Florida and Colorado, battled his way to a whopping 1,554 minutes in penalties.
How many of those do you think came for delay of game?
Which is what makes the notion of the massive Carribean-Canadian coaching a high school hockey team from South Florida so intriguing.
Those enormous hands, which when curled into bone hammers pummeled more than 100 tough opponents from 1997-2004, are now given the task of molding young players at North Broward Prep, a team making its first appearance this week in the Maine High School Hockey Invitational.
And doing it quite well, we might add, as lopsided wins over Bangor and Lewiston, both of them strong Maine high school programs, will bear witness to.
“We have a good, talented program,” said Worrell. “We’re just a little young.”
