In the basement of her home in small-town Saskatchewan, Darlene Tokarski would roll up a pair of socks — usually a pair of her husband’s sturdy work socks — and fire away at her young son. He demanded that she play, and that he be the goaltender in a game they came to call “sockball.”
It was all Dustin Tokarski wanted to do.
“I could get him to do anything for sockball,” Darlene said on Friday. “Clean his room. Rake leaves. Do this. Do that. It was, ‘well, as soon as you do this, we’ll play sockball.’ And it was done.’ ”
Sockball evolved into hockey, and hockey evolved into an obsession, one that has carried him through a career marked by international victories, professional disappointment and, within the last week, a burst of stardom and opportunity. The sockball veteran is making a name for himself in the National Hockey League playoffs.
