Authentic D.J. Swearinger SR Jersey
RALEIGH http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline....dis-jersey , N.C. (AP) The Carolina Hurricanes hired former captain and current assistant Rod Brind’Amour as their coach Tuesday, hoping the ”greatest leader” in franchise history can end a nine-year playoff drought.The team also announced that club president Don Waddell will become the full-time general manager after serving as acting GM.The team scheduled a news conference for Wednesday to discuss the moves.Waddell said a number of coaching candidates were discussed, but ”our conversations with staff and players consistently returned to the same person.”One of the team’s most decorated players, Brind’Amour captained the Hurricanes’ only Stanley Cup championship team in 2006.”Rod is the greatest leader in the history of this franchise, and has earned the opportunity to take charge of our locker room,” Waddell said in a statement.The two-time Selke Award winner as the NHL’s best defensive forward retired in 2010 and ranks third in club history in assists (299), fourth in points (473) and fifth in games played (694).He replaces Bill Peters, who opted out of his contract last month following his fourth year and subsequently was hired by the Calgary Flames. He becomes the Hurricanes’ third straight first-time NHL head coach, after Kirk Muller and Peters.Brind’Amour has been a Carolina assistant since 2011. He spent half his 20-season NHL career with the Hurricanes, leading them to the Stanley Cup finals in 2002 and again four years later.But Carolina has made the playoffs only once in the 12 years since Brind’Amour hoisted the Cup Authentic Adrian Peterson Jersey , and the Hurricanes’ nine-year absence from the postseason is one of the longest stretches in NHL history.That has led to a busy five months for the Hurricanes, with Dallas businessman Tom Dundon buying a majority interest in the team from longtime owner Peter Karmanos Jr. in January.A month later, Hall of Fame player and general manager Ron Francis – who, like Brind’Amour, has his jersey number hanging from the PNC Arena rafters – was reassigned to another front-office position, and his contract was terminated last week.In between, Peters – who was hired by Francis in 2014 – exercised the out clause in his contract, saying the incoming general manager should be able to pick his own coach.Turns out, that job fell to Waddell – the former general manager and president of the Atlanta Thrashers who had been part of the Hurricanes’ front office since 2014 and had been filling in since Francis’ demotion and subsequent exit.— HERNING, Denmark (AP) Five games Adrian Peterson Jersey Elite , five wins. Led by Patrick Kane, the United States has impressed so far at the ice hockey world championship in Denmark.The U.S. opened with victory over Canada, the tournament favorite seeking a third title in four years and captained by NHL leading scorer Connor McDavidChasing its first medal at the tournament since bronze in 2015, the 5-4 win over Canada in a penalty shootout set the pace for the U.S. in Group B, followed by victories against host Denmark (4-0), Germany (3-0), Latvia (3-2 in OT) and South Korea (13-1).The decision to make Kane captain after a disappointing season with his Chicago Blackhawks has paid off.The 29-year-old star forward last played at the world championships in 2008, his first season in the NHL and also the last time the Blackhawks missed the playoffs. In the meantime he won three Stanley Cup titles with the Blackhawks and was in the U.S. team at the 2010 and 2014 Olympics.”It’s a huge honor to represent the United States of America, the greatest country in the world,” Kane said.He has proved a leader on ice http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline....son-jersey , scoring three goals and adding nine assists in the first five games at the championship.Kane was also key to other players being keen to join the team.”His influence was as a magnet to attract players,” U.S. general manager Bill Zito said.The team includes game-breakers such as forwards Dylan Larkin of the Detroit Red Wings, Anders Lee of the New York Islanders, Chris Kreider of the New York Rangers and Johnny Gaudreau of the Calgary Flames. Cam Atkinson of the Columbus Blue Jackets has been the team’s leading scorer at the championship with five goals.But there’s also promising young talent, such as defenseman Quinn Hughes, a top 10 prospect in the 2018 NHL draft.”Lot of good players, lot of young guys on this team, so it’s been a fun team to be around,” Kane said.Kane’s Chicago teammate Alex DeBrincat, who is on the national team after scoring 28 goals in his rookie season with the Blackhawks Authentic D.J. Swearinger SR Jersey , praised Kane’s leadership qualities.”He wants to be the best, he’s always out there to be the best player on the ice,” DeBrincat said. ”For me, it’s taking that mentality and just using it. Everyone wants to be the best but some guys want that so much more and he’s one of those guys.”Boston Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy and Nashville Predators forward Nick Bonino have joined the team to strengthen the roster after the elimination from the NHL playoffs.With a quarterfinal spot all but ensured, the U.S. faces Norway on Sunday and Finland on Tuesday in their remaining Group B games.”The most important game is the next one, so we’ll look to continue improving as we get set for Norway,” head coach Jeff Blashill said.
