Less than two weeks ahead of free agency, with nothing but speculation on what the Minnesota Vikings might do at quarterback in 2018 and beyond, Zimmer noted the challenges of going through the process to find the right fit.
Tapped to fill in for an injured Wayne Simmonds on a second line with Jakub Voracek and rookie center Nolan Patrick, Weal is also competing on a power play with red-hot sophomore Travis Konecny. The 25-year-old forward could be in for a fairly productive spell, as Simmonds is slated to miss two to three weeks. Weal has enjoyed productive moments in the past, most notably when called up from the AHL last season. Fantasy managers in deeper leagues may want to give him a whirl, at least in the short-term.
Skating on the Devils’ top pair and anchoring the No. 1 power play, Vatanen is on a roll with six assists in five games, including one with the extra skater. Unless your league is all about the goals, this often underrated offensive-defenseman could merit inclusion.
While many NFL coaches would cringe at the thought of their star quarterback taking part in MLB spring training, the Seattle Seahawks’ Pete Carroll says he’s not one of them.
I think it’s awesome, Carroll said Thursday from the scouting combine.
Outside of medaling for the U.S. in bobsled, McGuffie just plans to soak up his Olympic experience as much as he can.
I like the diversity of it, I like that you’ve got multiple guys who can rush at any time, you’ve got guys who can rush from a lot of different angles, guys who can play multiple positions through the day, so it’s a lot interchangeable pieces, Eagles defensive line coach Chris Wilson says. When you have that flexibility, it makes you different. I don’t like to use the term ‘better,’ but it definitely makes you different.
Since the holiday break, Kane has only six points in 24 games. Perhaps he is beginning to heat up again, as he has three goals in his past six games, but I think this is a real buyer-beware scenario.
