Kukla's Korner Hockey

The bereaved mother of a deceased NHL enforcer said she is disgusted by a new series of blood-splattered cards meant to honour hockey’s tough guys.
“I’m vibrating right now. This is disgusting to me,” said Lorraine Belak, whose son Wade Belak was found dead in August after years of depression.
But the company behind the cards said the series, which is due for release in January, is intended to pay homage to the game’s enforcers—the so-called “goons” of the hockey rink who routinely give and take hits for the team.
