Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
During his career, Korn was largely used as a defenseman, but played some forward at times, especially while he was
with the Devils. Wherever he played, though, he racked up the penalty minutes.

His attitude was always a concern over the years. He tended to alienate his teammates with it. I'm not sure if it was
attitude or playing his role during the 88-89 seasons, where he was suspended for 3 games for going after Bruins coach
Terry O'Reilly after the game, and 1 more for getting a third game misconduct of the season.

He was traded to the Calgary Flames at the deadline in '90. Nothing came of that, really. The Flames chose to release
him after the season, and he chose to retire.

He returned to Minnesota and got involved in youth hockey in Minnetonka after retirement. He would become the
hockey development director there in 2002.
