Canadiens fire assistants Jean-Jacques Daigneault, Dan Lacroix, add Dominique Ducharme

Canadian world junior championship coach Dominique Ducharme has made the jump to the NHL as an assistant with the Montreal Canadiens.
Nike NFL Julien Davenport White Jersey Youth Limited: #70 Houston Texans Road Vapor Untouchable
The Canadiens dropped assistant coaches Jean-Jacques Daigneault and Dan Lacroix and hired Ducharme away from the Drummondville Voltigeurs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Friday.

Richards’ 10 strikeouts in just 4 2/3 innings of one-hit work made Wednesday night the best outing in his five-start MLB career, though he failed to get a decision.

I just focused on keeping the ball down and attacking the zone early, throwing strikes and looking ahead, said Richards (0-2, 4.94 ERA). We were just, fastball-changeups a lot. Trying to keep them Authentic Adrian Peterson Jersey off-balance.

The 24-year-old went undrafted out of Drury University in Springfield, Missouri, and spent the offseason working as a substitute teacher in his native Illinois. He previously spent an offseason working at MillerCoors in Milwaukee.
Limited Mens Geno Atkins Jersey
He served up exactly what the Marlins were thirsting for Wednesday.

Trevor was really good today, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. It’s really what we needed.

The Cowboys fans watching at AT&T Stadium, where the draft is being held, mostly reacted with a smattering of cheers even though Dallas will likely need to draft a receiver at some point in the coming rounds.

At the time the Cowboys picked, a receiver hadn’t yet been selected, so they had their choice of the lot. Maryland’s DJ Moore (who went at No. 24 to the Carolina Panthers), Alabama’s Calvin Ridley (No. 26 to the Atlanta Falcons), SMU’s Courtland Sutton and Texas A&M’s Christian Kirk were all passed up.

Charles Leno Game Jersey San Francisco took offensive lineman Mike McGlinchey at No. 9, and his selection is an interesting one because McGlinchey had no idea the 49ers were truly interested in him.

Did you have an inclination that the 49ers might take you when they did?

No, I had no idea, he said, according to a transcript from the 49ers. It’s definitely a shock, but absolutely thrilled to be a part of the San Francisco 49ers organization, and my family and I couldn’t be happier.

Paul Richardson claims he was asked if he was a drug dealer, in gang during traffic stop

The Virginia State Police are investigating claims made by Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson after he was ticketed by police.

After the incident, Richardson wrote on Twitter that a police officer pulled him over for having temporary registration, but claims he was asked if he was in a gang.

Before the first question is answered, Philadelphia will need to rely on coach Brett Brown and his relationship with Leonard from his days as an assistant in San Antonio. Because Philadelphia is restricted in what it can offer Leonard in an extension before free agency (four years, $107 million; six months after he is acquired), both sides would be relying on a handshake agreement before the trade is completed. Essentially, the Sixers would be risking three assets because they trust Leonard.

If the risk is warranted, Philadelphia would still have $27 million in room in 2018 and a lineup featuring Leonard, Ben Simmons, Robert Covington and Joel Embiid, plus its own first-round pick. The 76ers can take the same approach and roll over room to 2019 with $20 million in space.

Ramey took an official visit to Texas’ campus in December, and head coach Shaka Smart conducted an in-home visit with Ramey earlier this month.

A 6-foot-3 point guard from Webster Groves High School in Missouri, Ramey is ranked No. 56 in the ESPN 100 for the 2018 class. He is ranked as the No. 15 point guard in the country, but he had been the fourth-highest-ranked overall prospect still uncommitted.

Matt Coleman returns at the point guard spot for Texas after playing 34.0 minutes per game as a freshman, and fellow double-figure scorer Kerwin Roach II also will start again in the backcourt. With Eric Davis Jr. turning pro and Jacob Young transferring, though, Smart lacked depth and options on the perimeter. Ramey can run the offense or play alongside Coleman, and averaged 15.0 points and 4.4 rebounds for Ramey Jets United on the Adidas Gauntlet circuit last spring and summer.

Ramey is Texas’ fifth commitment in the 2018 class, joining a group that was ranked No. 13 heading into the week. All five players are considered four-star prospects, with Gerald Liddell, Kamaka Hepa and Jaxson Hayes each ranked in the ESPN 100.

Stevens’ message to Ojeleye was pretty simple.

John Wall says Wizards not at best in opening loss to Raptors

John Wall leaned back in his seat on the Toronto Raptors’ old practice court, sunglasses on and looking relaxed.
Men's Nike Los Angeles Chargers #85 Antonio Gates Elite Electric Blue Rush Vapor Untouchable NFL Jersey
Despite the fact that the Washington Wizards Rod Gilbert Jersey trail the top-seeded Raptors 1-0 in this best-of-seven Eastern Conference series, Wall remains confident that the Wizards played far from their best basketball in Game 1, a 114-106 victory for Toronto.

As Amed Rosario stood by the on-deck circle with a royal blue balaclava covering his mouth and nose, Matt Albers (2-1) shook off a sign from catcher Jett Bandy, and Flores sent a belt-high sinker over the 370-foot sign in left-center for his second home run this season.

It ran back up over the middle of the plate, Albers said. Looking back, maybe I should have gone in again.

Noah Syndergaard struck out eight batters in a row, two shy of Tom Seaver’s major league record, and Mets pitchers fanned 16 in all. Brandon Nimmo connected for a tying home run against Taylor Williams leading off the sixth and finished a double shy of the cycle.

ESPN’s K-Zone partly obstructs the catcher and only gives an estimate of if the pitch is a strike, as it is up to the subjectivity of the umpire for the actual call. It can be used effectively on replay, but it is distracting in the middle of live action.

Fox Sports’ version is a little thinner and a little less obtrusive than ESPN’s, while immediately offering the MPH when the ball goes over the plate.
Limited Youth John Gibson Jersey
The look is very subtle and it is not hitting viewers in the face, said Fox Sports Networks executive producer Michael Connelly.

Connelly said he has heard no complaints, including from his producers and directors.

Earnest Byner Kids Jersey Previously, Fox had utilized only the box during replays. Now, YES and all of the Fox Sports regionals use it like ESPN.

I’m thrilled that everyone is kind of embracing the importance of it, Orlins said.

David Johnson, Josh Allen, and more on Friday’s PFT PM

A week after seriously considering pulling the plug on the PFT PM podcast, the show has completed the goal of five episodes in five days. We saved the best for last.
Nike Women's Wes Schweitzer Elite Black Alternate Jersey - Atlanta Falcons NFL #71 Vapor Untouchable
Jon Gruden is going to discover he has a lot of toys to play with on his roster courtesy of general manager Reggie McKenzie. Derek Carr, Amari Cooper and Mack are all foundation players.

Atlanta has had some big hits on the defensive side of the ball with Beasley, Keanu Neal, Deion Jones and Desmond Trufant. Takkarist McKinley looked good as a rookie with six sacks.

The Cardinals have drafted three players that have made first-team All-Pro already 鈥?Johnson, Tyrann Mathieu and Budda Baker, who was last year’s second-round pick. GM Steve Keim has an eye for talent.

A big and physical linebacker, he could team with Sean Lee and Jaylon Smith to give the Cowboys something to build on at the position, after losing Anthony Hitchens in free agency.

The Cowboys took a late look at his neck issue, which Vander Esch downplayed as an issue. Apparently they were satisfied, and willing to invest.

Over three days this week in the NFL draft, teams will try to find players to fill their roster holes, help them make the playoffs and get them a Lombardi Trophy.

Limited Mens Philadelphia Flyers Jersey Most of the picks won’t work out. Some will be OK, and a few will be franchise changers. We examined the past five drafts (2013-17) to see which teams have been the best at drafting and which have been the worst to formulate our fourth annual draft rankings. Some teams have started to figure things out while others have slipped.

Luc Robitaille Womens Jersey The rankings are based on: how many games the draft pick has played, Pro Bowl appearances, first-team All-Pro selections and awards like MVP and Rookie of the Year. We also factored in how much the team has won during the five years, because players on losing teams tend to have an easier path to playing Nolan Arenado Womens Jersey time.

Josh Allen’s offensive high school tweets unearthed

Well, it wasn’t a gas mask bong this year.
Justin Faulk Youth Nike White 2014 Authentic Olympic Hockey Jersey - Home Team USA #72 Jerseys
Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen has some last-minute explaining to do, after the Internet exhumed some offensive tweets from his high school days.

Yes, he said. Nothing changed. You can overthink it, am I doing the right thing, it’s a running back, all these people are talking about this and this, you can make yourself meshuganah [crazy].

Pat Shurmur, the new Giants’ head coach, seated alongside Gettleman, smiled.

I’m learning Yiddish, Shurmur said.

Indeed, it was a jubilant mood around the Giants as they started figuring out just how dynamic Barkley can be for their offense and for their team. Barkley said not long after he learned he was coming to the Giants he FaceTimed with Odell Beckham Jr. and received a text from Manning.

Limited Mens Daniel Sprong Jersey The Patriots tight end recently Frederik Gauthier Womens Jersey acquired a stake in the horse. He’s also been hanging out in the world of dirt bikes while the Patriots offseason program rolls on without his participation.

Callaway caught 89 passes for 1,399 yards and 11 touchdowns in two seasons at Florida. He hasn’t played since the Outback Bowl on Jan. 2, 2017.

According to police, Callaway used a stolen credit card to add $1,970 to his campus bookstore account and then used the money to purchase a high-end computer and fancy headphones. He eventually entered a pretrial intervention program that could result in the dismissal of the felony charges.No player needing to impress his new head coach, knowing he has to battle to keep his place in the starting lineup, would fail to show up for a minicamp, even if that camp is voluntary. So, it must be deduced that Ereck Flowers staying away from the Giants this spring, and especially this week, is an attempt by him to force his way out.

Elite Youth Dorian Johnson Jersey The Giants realize this and are listening to trade talks with any team that might be interested in acquiring a huge offensive tackle, who has fallen far short of his lofty draft status. NFL Network reported the Giants have had trade discussions involving Flowers. The Post has learned teams have called about Flowers and the Giants have listened.

Ohtani allowed another single and threw a wild pitch in the first inning.

When approached at an elevator bank by two reporters early Sunday, off to the side of the well-appointed lobby of the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes Hotel, John Mara really had no intention of engaging in any sort of meaningful conversation.

Sure, he would meet with the media at these NFL owners’ meetings, but not now and not there, and he was about to hit the up button and head to his room.

What do you want to talk about? Mara asked.

Odell, the video and how it affects his contract situation, was the reply.

Mara paused, briefly, nodded his head in the direction of the two hand-held digital recorders and said, Put ’em on.

Mara got the ball rolling, and the Giants do not exactly mind some turbulence on Beckham’s flight to a new contract. If that means some trade scenario rumblings, so be it.

The stuff is there, Betts said of Ohtani. He’s got it all. But our team, we had a good approach tonight. He wasn’t able to land that splitter for strikes, and we did a good job laying off it and backing him into a corner where he probably had to throw a couple of pitches he didn’t want to throw.

Ohtani has had intermittent issues with blisters during the past few months, and he had a bandage on one of his fingers last week.

I felt like it would be fine today, (but) in the high intensity of a game, it didn’t hold up too well, Ohtani said through a translator. But I’m not going to be at the top of my game every start. When I don’t have my best stuff, I still have to fight through the game.

Ohtani’s fastball still hit 99 mph during his first career night start, but the evening began poorly when Betts cracked his 12th career leadoff homer.

Betts drew the only walk issued by Ohtani during the second inning despite mostly dismal control. Boston scored two more runs on Holt’s RBI single and Andrew Benintendi’s sacrifice fly.seahawks_122

Dion Lewis on Derrick Henry: We complement each other rather well

Running back Dion Lewis is no stranger to shared backfields after playing with the Patriots for the last three seasons and he signed on to be part of another one last month.
Youth DeMarcus Cousins Swingman Red Nike Jersey: NBA New Orleans Pelicans #0 Statement Edition
He looked really smooth out there, said Reggie Bonnafon, Jackson’s predecessor as Louisville’s QB before switching to receiver and running back. He put in a lot of time and work, working on his mechanics and things like that for the next level. He put on some weight, so he looked good and it was good to some passes from him.

Some draft boards project Jackson as a middle-to-late first-round selection. Wherever he goes, former Heisman Trophy winner and ESPN analyst Andre Ware said the workout should end talk about his QB potential.
Authentic Womens Jeurys Familia Jersey
I think that question was answered today, Ware said. That thing was put on (2012 Heisman winner) RG3 (Robert Griffin III) when he came out, and it’s reared its ugly head again with this kid. I think he’s one of the more dynamic playmakers Jake Muzzin Womens Jersey that we’ve seen in quite some time at the QB position, which makes it tough on a defense.

Los Angeles claimed Rose off waivers from Washington on December 18, and he played the final three games last season. He went only 1-of-3 on field-goal attempts.

The Chargers signed Roberto Aguayo in January and Caleb Sturgis last month as they seek to improve a two-year struggle at the position. They used four kickers last season, with the four combining to make only 20 of 30 field goals and 37 of 42 extra points. In 2016, Josh Lambo struggled in making 26 of 32 field goals and 42 of 46 PATs.
Authentic Womens Andre Holmes Jersey
Maurice Harkless dunked and Al-Farouq Aminu had a layup to re-tie the game at 97. After Holiday’s hook shot, Harkless made a 3-pointer to give Portland a 100-99 lead.

Nikola Mirotic and Holiday each hit 3-pointers to put the Pelicans back in front 105-100 with 1:35 remaining and Portland couldn’t catch up. Fans at the Moda Center booed at the final buzzer.

Lillard finished with 17 points for the Blazers, who were hurt in the third quarter when starters Jusuf Nurkic (left leg) and Evan Turner (right toe) left the game.

The third-seeded Blazers, in the playoffs for the fifth straight year, dropped the first game against the Pelicans 97-95, becoming the highest seed to lose at the start of the opening round.

Bill Belichick to Cordarrelle Patterson: We’ll make you the player you should be

Adam Thielen Authentic Jersey The Patriots acquired wide receiver/kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson in a trade with the Raiders this offseason and Patterson called the development an exciting one during an appearance on NFL Network Wednesday.
Youth Vince Coleman Replica Green Majestic Jersey: MLB St. Louis Cardinals #29 Salute to Service
Patterson ran through how he found out about the trade from Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie Aleksi Heponiemi Jersey and then started talking to players from the Patriots organization, including head coach Bill Belichick. Patterson said that it was crazy to get that call and shared some of what Belichick told him during their conversation.

We’re just trying to get him ready for Friday’s game. And we’re hopeful he can play, Stevens joked before the game.

He then quickly made it clear it’s simply the logical next step in what remains a long rehab process.

He’s not gonna join us in Milwaukee, Stevens said. He’s still a long, long, long way away.

And hoping that I’m framing a moment the way they would have. It’s really important to me that I do them justice because I am a product of their world. They shaped me. They shaped me as a young kid, since I was 11 years old. That was the desire was to be one of them. And I love them all.

Saban said he didn’t know about James’ show, and contends the concept isn’t new.

I think LeBron James is a great player, Saban said. There’s been at least 20 barbershop-type things I’ve seen. I didn’t even know he had one. I’m sorry anybody could be offended by something we were just trying to have fun with. I enjoyed it and we’re going to continue to do it.

Alabama released a trailer on Twitter for Shop Talk showing Saban and NFL receiver Julio Jones in a barber shop setting.

Uninterrupted sent a letter to Alabama, citing concerns over copyright infringement and intellectual property.
Donnie Jones Authentic Jersey
Following Tuesday’s win over Toronto in Cleveland, James was told about Saban’s stance.

They cannot help themselves.

Authentic Mens Evgeny Kuznetsov Jersey General managers, looking to build a franchise and head coaches, looking to mold a team will reach for quarterbacks in the NFL draft. It will happen later this month, just as it has happened in so many past drafts, an annual commingling of need and desperation partnering to fill the most important position in the game.
Jaguars Official Jersey
If a team doesn’t have a quarterback, they don’t really have anything, opined Bradley Chubb, who is not a quarterback but does have close, personal knowledge of them as a pass-rushing defensive end.
Authentic Kids Nick Fairley Jersey
Getting after the quarterback is up there, as far as priorities, and selecting pass rushers high in the draft is usually a smart idea. A year ago, the Browns made Myles Garrett the No. 1 pick and, despite some injury issues, the Browns are happy with that decision. In recent years, Jadeveon Clowney, Joey Bosa, Vic Beasley, Khalil Mack, Ziggy Ansah and Von Miller were high picks who lived up to their lofty draft status, or at least showed flashes of greatness.

If the Giants decide to bypass a quarterback and opt for an impact player on defense, rather than running back Saquon Barkley or guard Quenton Nelson, be assured Chubb will be on the field each and every down for Bettcher.

As one of the 30 pre-draft visits they are allowed, the Giants played host Wednesday and Thursday to Chubb, the North Carolina State product who Pat McAfee Jersey can instantly upgrade any defense.

Typically, prospects arrive in the late afternoon and go to dinner with the head coach, appropriate coordinator and position coach. The player spends the next day at the team facility, meeting with coaches, talking football, getting a tour, speaking with the general manager and any other pertinent team officials. The visit usually ends in the late afternoon, lasting about 24 hours in duration.
