Kucherov shows off how fussy he is about his tape job

It’s no secret that hockey players are superstitious.  Nikita Kucherov shows how he tapes his stick, and that he’s extremely picky about puck marks being on his blade.

“I get a little frustrated when I get too much marks. I like it to be clean and fresh. I don’t like any marks on my blade and if I have too many marks I will change it because I want to have nice tape.”


His superstitions seem to be working.  The 24 year old leads the NHL with 78 points in 60 games, and seems to have become the king of the “no shot” goal.  See videos below:
