Stamkos suffers a major injury, Krug producing for the Bruins, Jagr can still play, Bryzgalov, Hagelin, Crosby and more in Scott Cullens latest blog. Authentic Zach LaVine Jersey . 1. As I was getting ready to write this blog, I was all set to lead with Steven Stamkos. The Lightning had won seven of their last eight games (before Mondays loss to Boston) and, in those eight games, Stamkos had nine goals and four assists, giving him 23 points for the season, moving into a tie with Sidney Crosby for the league scoring lead. Then, Stamkos crashed into the Tampa Bay net while backchecking (theres a lesson for you high-scoring kids out there -- never back-check) and suffered what Aaron Ward reported as a broken tibia. There are different types of breaks, so that will determine recovery time, but the injury is serious enough that Stamkos availability to Team Canada for the Sochi Olympics is in doubt. Moreover, the Lightning now have to somehow manage without their MVP candidate for at least the next few months. Down the middle, they still have Valtteri Filppula and Tyler Johnson, who have some offensive pedigree, if not nearly at Stamkos level, but losing such a high-percentage finisher is going to be impossible to replace. Since the start of the 2009-2010 season Stamkos has scored on 18.3% of his shots, the best among players with at least 100 goals in that span. Second-best is Sidney Crosby, at 15.8%. The likely effect of losing Stamkos, though, is that its going to be more difficult for Martin St. Louis to rack up assists, without his top triggerman, so the Lightning will have to get more from their supporting cast. Teddy Purcell, Alex Killorn, Ryan Malone and Brett Connolly will need to contribute more if the Lightning are to have any hope of holding the fort in Stamkos absence. If Stamkos is going to be out long-term, maybe that could provide the impetus for the Lightning to promote Nikita Kucherov from the AHL. Theyve called up J.T. Brown, but Kucherov has higher upside. A 20-year-old right winger, he was a second-round pick in 2011 and has started his pro career on fire with 12 goals and 22 points in 13 games. Hes not Stamkos, but if generating offence is a challenge, Kucherov might be able to help. 2. Bruins rookie D Torey Krug burst onto the scene in last years playoffs, scoring four goals in his first five postseason games, before settling down and managing one assist over his last 10 games. This year, the Bruins have installed Krug at the point on their top power play unit and hes producing, with six of his 10 points coming with the man advantage. While hes scored on 16.7% of his shots, which is not sustainable for a defenceman, Krug is generating 2.25 shots on goal per game, putting him in the top 20 (tied with Chara for 17th) among defencemen to have played at least 10 games this season, an indication that in his current role, Krug should continue to provide offence. 3. In his last 10 games, Devils RW Jaromir Jagr has 10 points, all while skating for a Devils team that offers precious little offensive support. D Marek Zidlicky is the only other Devil with more than seven points on the season -- thats 17 games. Certainly, Patrik Elias would be considered a reliable offensive performer, but hes only played 10 games (and has seven points), but Travis Zajac, Damien Brunner, Michael Ryder, Adam Henrique and Andrei Loktionov are the ones being counted on to generate offence, so its a real credit to Jagr that hes been this productive. Jagr has also had strong puck possession numbers, but is only generating 2.00 shots on goal per game, his fewest since his rookie season, 1990-1991. 4. The Edmonton Oilers, obviously feeling desperate, agreed to a deal with G Ilya Bryzgalov over the weekend. In the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 seasons, there were 44 goaltenders to play at least 40 games. Bryzgalov ranked 36th among them with a .905 save percentage. Devan Dubnyk, incidentally, ranked 16th with a .917 save percentage. Expanding the view, to include Bryzgalovs years in Phoenix, there were 61 goalies to play at least 100 games between 2007-2008 and 2012-2013 and Bryzgalov ranked 20th with a .914 save percentage, as well as ranking fourth with 365 games played. (Dubnyk 26th on that list, .913) Obviously, Dubnyk is off to a horrendous start this year and no team can win when their starting goaltender has an .876 save percentage, so if Bryzgalov can upgrade the position, thats great. At the same time, the Oilers are 4-13-2, 14 points out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference. How impossibly great would Bryzgalov have to be in order to make the Oilers competitive this season? And how likely is it that he can be that great, given his play over the last two seasons? 5. The Rangers got off to a slow start this year, not least of all because their first nine games were on the road, but also because captain Ryan Callahan was injured. Also injured, as he recovered from shoulder surgery, was LW Carl Hagelin and Hagelin has been an integral part of the Rangers resurgence, contributing four goals and eight points in seven games. Not unlike Jagr, Hagelin has good possession stats, but has only generated 2.00 shots on goal per game, well below last years 2.75 per game, so hes had to rely on a high on-ice shooting percentage. It suggests that regression is coming, but no one is expecting Hagelin to score a point-per-game over the long haul anyway. But, he can be a quality second-line scoring winger and that Rangers are a better team with him in the lineup. 6. Ducks G Frederik Andersen is forcing Anaheim into a decision as Viktor Fasth is nearing a return from injury. Andersen has a 1.41 goals against average and .952 save percentage in his first six games, making it impossible to view him as a temporary fill-in who can be easily jettisoned to the AHL. Andersen dominated the Swedish Elite League in 2011-2012, posting a 1.67 goals against average and .941 save percentage in 39 games, then had a 2.19 goals against average and .929 save percentage in 47 AHL games last season, so hes stopped the puck everywhere hes been and his play could make it much easier for the Ducks to shop Jonas Hiller, the veteran who will be a free agent at seasons end, and go forward with Andersen and Fasth. 7. Blue Jackets C Ryan Johansen is coming off the first three-point game of his career, Saturday against the Islanders, but that only put an exclamation point on his improved play in his third season. In the last 11 games, Johansen has tallied 10 points (5 G, 5 A) and has played at least 18 minutes in nine of those games. Hes playing harder minutes and having a reasonable amount of success when it comes to puck possession. In fact, with a little better finish from his linemates (R.J. Umberger and a rotating cast of wingers on the other side), his offensive production could be even better. 8. Kings RW Tyler Toffoli had every right to be disappointed when he didnt make the team out of training camp. After scoring 11 points in 22 (regular season plus playoff) games in a late-season audition as first-year pro, Toffoli looked like a good bet to secure a spot on the second line this season. But, the roster numbers being what they were, the Kings decided to send Toffoli to the AHL rather than expose other forwards to waivers, and Toffoli put up seven goals and a dozen points in 10 AHL games before Kings RW Jeff Carter suffered a foot injury, opening the door for Toffolis promotion. Since joining the Kings, Toffoli has skated with C Mike Richards and LW Dwight King, putting up five points (2 G, 3 A) in three games and is playing dramatically more (17:27 ATOI) than he did when called up last season (11:59 ATOI). If Toffoli continues to produce, giving the Kings a potent second line, its hard to imagine they wont find a way to keep him around this time. 9. Penguins C Sidney Crosby (1 G, 5 A in last 9 GP) has run into a period of merely decent production, following a sizzling start (7 G, 10 A in 8 GP) and Saturdays loss at St. Louis -- obviously a tough matchup -- resulted in Crosbys lowest Corsi of the season. Theres no need for panic, so long as Crosby is healthy, but if production doesnt change, then its possible that linemates will, so that bears watching. Certainly Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis have much higher value when they are playing regularly with No. 87. 10. Jets C Bryan Little has gone up and down, particularly in terms of goal production, throughout his career and this season appears to be an up season in that regard as he has scored 10 goals in 19 games (after scoring seven goals in 48 games last season). Hes scoring on a career-high 24.4% of his shots this year, which wont continue, but Little is generating shots. His current rate, 2.16 shots on goal per game, is the third-best of his career, just behind seasons in which he tallied 2.18 and 2.19 shots per game. In those two seasons, Little finished with 31 and 24 goals, respectively. SMID TRADE When the Edmonton Oilers traded Ladislav Smid to the Calgary Flames, they cleared out a contract that has three years (after the current season) remaining with a cap hit of $3.5-million per season. While the move could have ostensibly been made to bring in Bryzgalov, the Oilers arent making that kind of financial commitment to the flighty goaltender, so the cap savings can be used for other moves. Smid played tough minutes for the Oilers, starting most of his shifts in the defensive zone, but he was also taking on a lesser role this season, playing fewer than 18 minutes per game after averaging more than 20 minutes per game over the previous three seasons. Hes not going to score much, his career-high is 15 points, but Smid plays a physical game and can kill penalties. The Flames have three defencemen (Chris Butler, Kris Russell and Derek Smith) set to be unrestricted free agents at seasons end, so Smid gives the Flames some roster insurance moving forward. Smid also has a history with Flames president Brian Burke who, as GM of the Anaheim Ducks, traded Smid to Edmonton in order to acquire Chris Pronger. 27-year-old Smid has a good opportunity to play 20-plus minutes per game for the Flames, who could use a little more bite on the blueline. The Flames also got G Olivier Roy as part of the deal. Roy, 22, was a fifth-round pick in 2009 and while hes had ECHL success early in his pro career, he hasnt been as strong in the AHL, posting a .906 save percentage in 32 AHL games. Going the other way, the Oilers get G Laurent Brossoit, a 20-year-old who was a sixth-round pick in 2011. The first-year pro has split his starts between the ECHL and AHL this year, but he did backstop the Edmonton Oil Kings to a WHL Championship and Memorial Cup berth in 2011-2012, so there may be higher hopes for Brossoits potential than Roys at this point. The Oilers also received LW/C Roman Horak, a 22-year-old who has 18 points in 82 career NHL games. He has decent size, can skate and could develop into a solid checking forward. He also has 41 points in 86 career AHL games. FIRST NHL GAMES Adam Almquist, D, Detroit - A seventh-round pick of the Red Wings in 2009, Almquist is an undersized but mobile blueliner who had 38 points in 81 career AHL games before getting called up due to injuries (Jonathan Ericsson, Brendan Smith) on the Detroit blueline. Chad Billins, D, Calgary - Another smallish defenceman, who had 37 points in 76 games with Grand Rapids of the AHL last season after a four-year career at Ferris State, Billins had six goals and eight points in 12 games for AHL Abbotsford this season to earn a promotion. He contributed two assists in two games for the Flames, though he did take a beating in the possession game. Taylor Fedun, D, Edmonton - The 25-year-old, who played four years at Princeton, missed the entire 2011-2012 season after suffering a broken femur in a preseason game. He rebounded wit ha strong season for Oklahoma City last year and has 31 points in 82 career AHL games. He scored goals in each of his first two games for the Oilers. Lindey Vey, C, Los Angeles - Playmaking forward has steadily improved since he was a fourth-round pick in 2009. He scored 43 points in 74 AHL games two years ago, as a rookie pro, then put up 67 points in 74 games last season before opening this year with 11 points in 10 games, earning a recall when Jarret Stoll was injured. He had one assist in his first two games with the Kings, though his possession stats werent ideal. Marek Mazanec, G, Nashville - A sixth-round pick in 2012, the Czech goaltender was pressed into service when the Predators pulled starter Carter Hutton after Hutton had allowed three goals on eight shots, in just 8:23 at Winnipeg. Mazanec allowed two goals in the remaining 51:37. He doesnt figure to be ready for much NHL duty right now, but does have a 1.97 goals against average and .933 save percentage in five AHL games this year.

"Were looking forward to the new qualifying format for all three of our national series this year," NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton said during a teleconference. "The new format is something that weve been looking at for quite some time. The goal is providing a more fan- friendly and exciting qualifying session for each race event across the board, with the exception of the Daytona 500 and Eldora, which are unique in their own right. "NASCAR fans will be treated to highly competitive elimination-based qualifying segments that will be more engaging to the fans in the stands and those watching on television or online." For those races on tracks 1.25 miles or greater, the first qualifying elimination round will be 25 minutes in duration and includes all cars/trucks. Adidas Stan Smith Baratas.

TAMPA, Fla. PJ Tucker Jersey . -- Steven Stamkos will not play for Team Canada at the Sochi Olympics after tests revealed Wednesday that his broken right leg is not completely healed. Tampa Bay Lightning doctors said they couldnt clear him to play after examining his most recent CT scan and will re-evaluate his condition again in two to three weeks. Lightning captain and teammate Martin St. Louis has been named as his replacement. Its a big blow for the 23-year-old, who had been optimistic earlier this week that he might be able to play by as soon as Saturday. "Today is obviously very disappointing for me," Stamkos said in a release. "I honestly believe that we did everything possible in order to have my injured leg ready in time for the Olympics, but I realize you cant force healing. I know, in the best interest of my long-term health, I cannot represent Canada in Sochi, as much as I would like to." Yzerman said Stamkos "should not be participating in game action at any time in the near future." "Although the doctor was very pleased to this point with the healing process, he explained that the callus surrounding the fracture site is not 100 per cent consolidated, and Steven will not be cleared to play in a game until that happens," said Yzerman. "It was a pretty clear-cut decision, no grey areas at all." Sidney Crosby, the captain for Team Canada, was disappointed to hear that Stamkos would not be heading to Sochi. "Its tough to see. I think we all figured if theres anyone thats going to find a way back, it would be him," Crosby said, after scoring a goal and adding an assist in Pittsburghs 5-1 win at Buffalo Wednesday night. "That being said, its probably more difficult for him than anyone else. You feel for him, but we obviously have to move forward." Crosby declined to suggest who he might favour as a candidate to replace Stamkos. "With different guys in the mix, I think its a good problem to have," Crosby said. "But nonetheless, I dont think its an easy decision at all." NHL players are set to leave Sunday and arrive in Sochi on Monday. Canadas first game is Feb. 13. Stamkos suffered the injury Nov. 11 and hasnt played since. He underwent surgery to have a titanium rod inserted into the tibia. T.J.

The top-ranked Williams carried her winning momentum from 2013 into the new season, beating No. 2-ranked Victoria Azarenka 6-4, 7-5 on Saturday to defend her title at the Brisbane International and set the tone for the Australian Open. She extended her winning streak to 22 matches with the emphatic win over the reigning Australian Open champion, making it back-to-back victories over two of her main rivals. She beat four-time major winner Maria Sharapova in straight sets in an intense semifinal, her 14th consecutive win in that frosty duel. She improved to 14-3 against Azarenka, the last person to beat her last year. Before the semifinals, Williams said there was nothing like being "thrown into the deep end straight away." Having come through those challenges, she thought it was the ideal season-opening tournament. "It was a great test. It showed me where my level was," Williams said, looking ahead to the Australian Open. "Im happy I was able to play both Maria and Victoria, because they brought their A games against me. I know now what I need to do for Melbourne -- I look forward to it." The years first major starts Jan. 13 at Melbourne Park and Williams, who won 78 of her 82 matches and collected 11 titles last year, is positioning herself as the favourite to claim a sixth Australian title after winning a tournament featuring six of the top 10 women. Williams has so many trophies now, she said she doesnt know where they all are -- "some are MIA" -- but that doesnt stop her from collecting more. This was her 58th, including 17 majors. Immediately after the loss, Azarenka said she hopes to face Williams again in Melbourne -- as the top two ranked players, they can only meet in the final. "I cant say Im satisfied today, but I want to take the positive, what Ive done today, and build from here towards the next week," Azarenka said. "This is the first week where you really test yourself where yoour game is at, and from here you can take the positives and the things that you have to work on and really go after that. Leandro Barbosa Jersey. " Williams earned the first break in the seventh game and hit fired consecutive aces to finish off the first set in 37 minutes. She went up a break immediately in the second set before Azarenka won four straight games to take a 4-2 lead. Williams, who was comparatively silent against a screeching opponent for the second straight night, let out a scream of relief and satisfaction after hitting an overhead winner to break back in the seventh game. And she yelled and pumped her arm again after converting a break in the 11th game with a backhand down line. Serving for the championship, Williams started with two aces -- her 10th and 11th -- and then hit a service winner to set up two championship points at 40-15. She fired an unreturnable serve to finish it off. The Williams sisters were hoping to both win a WTA Tour event in the same week for the first time in 15 years, but Ana Ivanovic prevented that when she beat Venus Williams 6-2, 5-7, 6-4 in the final of the ASB Classic in Auckland, New Zealand. It was the end of a personal drought for second-seeded Ivanovic, who claimed her 12th career singles title and her first since Bali in 2011. Venus Williams was the crowds sentimental favourite after reaching the final of her first tournament since September. After a long struggle with injury and illness, her form in Auckland supported her claim that she is fitter and healthier than she has been in years. The mens final in Brisbane on Sunday will feature two 32-year-old former No. 1s. Top-seeded Roger Federer and Lleyton Hewitt earned three-set semifinal victories to advance, renewing a rivalry that stretches back to the last millennium. Federer beat No. 8-seeded Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-3 immediately after Hewitts 5-7, 6-4, 6-3 win over second-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan in sweltering heat topping 40 Celsius (104 F). The pair have met 26 times dating back to 1999, with Federer leading 18-8 including 16 of the last 17.

The Toronto Blue Jays have made it abundantly clear how much they are counting on Brandon Morrow for the coming season. Andrew Wiggins Timberwolves Jersey . Morrow made 30 starts in 2011 and appeared to have the "stuff" of which stars are made. He looked even better early in 2012, until a strained oblique muscle shut him down in early June. The injury woes continued in 2013 when an entrapped radial nerve in his pitching arm effectively shut him down from the end of May. So Morrow went from 30 starts in 2011 to 31 combined in 2012 and 2013. Morrow has really only been a starter for four seasons and last lost large chunks of the past two to injuries. So where does that leave us? Well, Morrow has a career record of 41-40 with a 4.22 ERA. He has never pitched more than 179.1 innings. In 102 career starts, he has four complete games, yet when he has been healthy, Morrow has had moments of sheer brilliance and could easily pass for a staff ace or at least a number two starter. He will make $8 million this season in the final year of a three-year pact, with the Jays holding an option year worth $10 million. There are those who will say that since Morrow is about to turn 30, if he doesnt make it it now, he never will. In some cases that is true, but you would be surprised at the number of pitchers whose careers didnt take off until they hit 30. Curt Schilling, who won a pair of World Series titles with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Boston Red Sox only won 52 games through the age of 29. From that point until he retired, he racked up 164 victories. Eventually, he could wind up in the Hall of Fame. Though not as extreme an example, lefty Mickey Lolich, who won three games for the Detroit Tigers in the 1968 World Series, won 101 of his 217 career victories after turning 30. Red Sox knuckleballer Tim Wakefield didnt come to pitching until his late 20s, having tried to make it first as an infielder in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, but from 30 on, he put up 156 of his 200 career wins. The remarkable Jamie Moyer, the soft tosssing lefty control artist, pitched untill he was 49 and totalled 269 victories. Due to injury, Moyer didnt pitch in his 29th year, but from 30 on, he won the incredible total of 235. So, in other words, at age 29, Morrow has more victories than Moyer did. There are a couple of other lefties worth mentioning, as well. Jim Kaat, whos probably remembered as much now for his broadcasting work nationally as he is for his playing days, won 283 games over his career, He won 128 games through the age of 29 and 155 after that until he retired in his 40s. Tommy John, for whom the operation is named, won 288 games, the seventh-most all-time amongst southpaws. He won 95 games through the age of 29 and he won another 29 more before having elbow transplant surgery at age 31. He missed the entire 1975 season in recovery. John then returned to win 164 more games until he retired in 1989 at age 46. These last two examples put up the most amazing totals of all after turning 30. Hall of Fame knuckleballer Phil Niekro only had 31 victories through the age of 29. He finished with 318. Do the math. He won 287 games from the age of 30 on. Another man enshrined in Cooperstown, lefty Warren Spahn, was almost impressive and, in some ways, even more so. At the age of 21 after just part of one season in the Majors, Spahn left for three years to serve in the United States Army during World War II. When he resumed his career, Spahn racked up 86 wins through the age of 29. From that point on, he won another 277 games for a grand total of 363.

Remember, though , this past season Mariano Rivera made his final appearance at Yankee Stadium. Though he accompanied the team to Houston for its final series with the Astros, he announced in advance, that he wouldnt be pitching in that series. If you want to dial it even further back, Red Sox legend Ted Williams homered in his final at-bat at Fenway Park back in 1960. That was it for the "Splendid Splinter," as he opted not to go to New York at all for the final series of the season against the Yankees. So for the sake of those spending all the money, lets hope Derek Jeter is healthy and there is something on the line in that final series.

DETROIT -- Doug Weight recalled his father putting him on skates at the age of 2 because he could barely walk due to a childhood condition that relegated him to wearing braces on his legs. "He started putting me on the ice to strengthen them at the suggestion from a doctor," he said. Weight said it wasnt a pretty sight at the rink in St. Clair Shores, Mich. "I looked like Forrest Gump," he joked. Four decades later, Weight was inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame. The Stanley Cup champion, three-time Olympian and four-time NHL All-Star was inducted Monday night at the Motor City Casino -- in the city where he grew up. "Its ironic," the Detroiter said. "Pretty special." Weight was honoured along with former teammate Bill Guerin, a two-time Stanley Cup champion, three-time Olympian and four-time All-Star. "Its very special, three different NHL teams and nine teams in all," Weight said about the number of times he teamed up with Guerin. "Its a pretty incredible run together. "Its icing on the cake to go in with Billy." Weight and Guerins wives and children have become friends over the years, going on vacations together and sharing holidays as families. "It couldnt have worked out any better," Guerin said. Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos, former college coach Ron Mason and Cindy Curley, one of the pioneers in womens hockey, also were inducted. USA Today Hockey Writer Kevin Allen was also given the Lester Patrick Trophy for outstanding service to hockey in the U.S. at the event. Weight and Guerin began their friendship before they were in the NHL and grew closer while playing together for the Edmonton Oilers, St. Louis Blues and New York Islanders. They also teamed up to play for their country on more than once occasion, including the 2002 Winter Olympics wheen they helped the Americans take the silver medal. Gerald Green Heat Jersey. Weight, who won a Stanley Cup in 2006 with the Carolina Hurricanes, had 278 career goals and 1,033 points from the 1991-92 season through the 2010-11 season. He is an assistant coach for the New York Islanders. Guerin hoisted Cups in 1995 with the New Jersey Devils and in 2009 with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The native of Massachusetts had 429 goals and 856 points in his career that started during the same season as Weight and ended one year earlier. Guerin is a player development coach for the Penguins. Karmanos fell in love hockey when his children began playing the sport, but laments that a lot of kids cant afford to play the game. He said ice cost about $40 an hour when his children were growing up and now costs $300 for the same period of time. Sticks and skates, he said, also are much more expensive. "One of the things that holds us back as a sport is it costs too much," Karmanos said. "Were pricing a lot of people out of the game." Mason led Michigan State and Lake Superior State to national titles and also coached at Bowling Green. He also was an athletic director for the Spartans. "This isnt something you dream about," he said. "If youve put a lot of years in, like I did, as a player and a coach and of course AD, its nice to be rewarded at the end of it." Curley had a record 23 points in the International Ice Hockey Federations first world championship for women in 1990. "The womens game is way behind the mens game and it hasnt been around as long," she said. "We are all, as women, patient for the opportunities that the guys have had. The fact that the Hall is considering women is exciting to me. I know theres so many great players that deserve to be in here that will be. Im just honoured that they considered me."

KISSIMMEE, Fla. Piumino Lungo Moncler . -- The Atlanta Braves added to their extensive wave of long-term deals with their young stars on Sunday by agreeing to a $42 million, four-year contract with All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel. Kimbrel, 25, avoided salary arbitration. He was the last Braves player eligible for arbitration. Kimbrel gets a $1 million signing bonus and salaries of $7 million this year, $9 million in 2015, $11 million in 2016 and $13 million in 2017. The Braves have a $13 million option for 2018 with a $1 million buyout. "We are very excited to agree to terms with Craig, who we feel is the best closer in Major League Baseball," Braves general manager Frank Wren said. "He is one of the key pieces of our pitching staff and we are happy to keep him in a Braves uniform for at least four more years." Kimbrels arbitration hearing had been set for Monday. The Braves offered $6.55 million and Kimbrel asked for $9 million. The Braves have been busy locking up some of their top young players and avoiding arbitration with long-term contracts. The deal with Kimbrel came only two days after the Braves and right-hander Julio Teheran, 23, agreed to terms on a six-year, $32.4 million contract on Friday. The deal includes a club option for the 2020 season. Earlier this month, the Braves announced multi-year deals with a pair of 24-year-old hitters -- first baseman Freddie Freeman and outfielder Jason Heyward. Freeman agreed to the biggest contract in Braves history -- $135 million for eight years. Heywards contract is for two years and $13.3 million. The agreement with Kimbrel allows the Braves to retain one of baseballs most dominant closers. He has 138 saves in the last three seasons, including 50 saves with a 1.21 ERA and 98 strikeouts in 67 innings last year.

Rugby Canada announced Wednesday that the Canadian men will host Japan in an international rugby test June 7 at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby, B.C. The date of the matchup had already been announced but Rugby Canada did not confirm the site until Wednesday. The match is part of a revamped Pacific Nations Cup that will see the 15th-ranked Canadians take on both No. 14 Japan and the No. 18 United States during the summer. Canada will host No. 9 Scotland at Torontos BMO Field on June 14. The Pacific Nations cup game against the U.S. will follow south of the border although no date or venue has been announced yet. Canadian coach Kieran Crowley plans a trials match in B.C. a week before the first game in June so he can review the Canadian and overseas talent at his disposal. Domestic-based players will take part in the Canadian Rugby Championship in the late summer with Crowley selecting the cream of the crop to represent Canada in the Americas Rugby Championship in the fall. The Canadians will also have three test matches in November although Crowley said dates and opposition have yet to be determinned. Giubbotti Moncler Scontati. "Weve got the six games at the moment for this year," Crowley said Wednesday from Las Vegas where he is assisting the Canadian sevens team. "Wed obviously like a few more but its (the difficulty of getting) games within the (international) windows." Canada has already qualified for the 2015 World Cup, which opens in September 2015 in England, and hopes for a busier schedule next year in the leadup. The Canadians will play in Pool D with No. 5 France, No. 7 Ireland, No. 13 Italy and Europe 2. The Pacific Nations Cup tournament is split into two pools this year, with Canada, Japan and the U.S. in one pool and Fiji, Tonga and Samoa in the other. The pool winners will meet in November to decide the tournament winner. The pool runners-up will also play each other as will the third-place teams to decide final rankings. Fiji and Canada both finished with 3-1-0 records at the Pacific Nations Cup in 2013 but the Pacific Islanders placed first by virtue of more bonus points. The 2013 event was a basic round-robin format. Canada defeated Fiji 20-18 in Ottawa but lost 16-13 to Japan in its final tournament game.
