As much as hockey is a presence in Europe, it is still as much a pocketed game there as it is the further below the 49th parallel you delve into America.
Tonight, Peter Regin makes his NHL debut. He will be the fifth player from Denmark to suit up, with the only other Danes currently on NHL rosters playing for the Islanders (Frans Nielsen) and the Coyotes (Mikkel Boedker).
It might not have the flair of other, south of the equator entries into the League, but every time this game can reach deeper, it can’t be seen in any light but a positive one.
Regin has been a solid two-way player for Binghamton of the AHL, notching 8-12—20 in 29 games, tied for the team lead as a +8. He will center a line with Foligno and Fisher as Neil is out with the flu. I hope you got your flu shot too.

Native of Northern California. Hockey fan since 1998... sort of... there's a hiatus in there that I still can't explain.
I want to know about anything and everything related to the sport and the spectacle. I watch, I react, I write it down.
My interest in the Sharks was initially a matter of geographic convenience and regional loyalty because that seemed to be how it worked. I had no prior interest (at all-- AT ALL) in professional sports of any kind. When I met hockey, it might have set off a chain reaction of general sports fandom. It hasn't, I don't think it will. At all.
Since then, that interest developed into full blown (mostly sort of usually almost completely) exclusive loyalty to the Sharks.
I started blogging a couple years ago on wordpress. I still occasionally put things there that I don't think fit here because they are not about the Sharks. Wherever my words wander, here on Kuklas Korner, they will (usually) hang on to a teal thread.
