Flags add offensive threat, waive defender

The Port Huron Flags signed right wing Bobby Kukulka to the roster today, as they prepare to head into a busy stretch that includes nine home and four away games until the end of the month.

Kukulka spent the last two seasons in the UHL, playing with the Flint Generals and the now defunct-Richmond Riverdogs. During those two seasons, he racked up 26 goals and 25 assists. He played the initial part of this season in the Central Hockey League with the New Mexico Scorpions. In 11 games, he netted a goal and three assists.

“Bobby is a feisty, gritty forward," Port Huron head coach Stan Drulia said. "He goes to the net and will hopefully provide a spark for our offense. He sticks his nose in when it counts."

A native of Macomb, Kukulka weighs in at 175 pounds and stands 5-foot-8. He won a Continental Elite Hockey League title in 2003 with the Detroit Lightning.

Additionally, the Flags waived defenseman Sam Webber on Monday.
