It’s early yet – just three games in for the New York Rangers – but one of the more fascinating stories of the young NHL season is that of Anthony Duclair. The 19-year-old could be back with the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League but instead he’s skating alongside Marty St. Louis and Rick Nash on the Blueshirts’ top line. And, so far, looking awfully good doing it.
If it’s an early November Monday in Moose Jaw, it must be time to get down to the serious business of choosing Canada's national junior team for the 2018 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship. The six-game Canada-Russia series, featuring Canadian national junior team candidates against the barnstorming visitors, kicks off tonight in Moose Jaw and tomorrow in Swift Current for the Western Hockey League hopefuls for Team Canada.
Craig Cunningham lost his leg and his career as a professional hockey player. He almost lost his life, too. But through that difficult, life-changing experience, the 27-year-old Cunningham also found something: a sense of purpose and a cause â€“ one that could create a lasting legacy of epic proportion. "I feel like I can't make a difference on the ice anymore," Cunningham said, "but I can make a difference for a lot of other people. I can do something else. That's what I'm going to do now."
BTW, my favourite two NHL players to cover from that era were Patrick Roy and Brett Hull. They had such a (mostly) joyful swagger. Both were liable to say or do anything. Star power and a cavalier attitude radiated off them. Not many like them today.
After Patrick was done with media, I offered for him to forgo meet-and-greet with Mike, figuring loss and fake dump in killed the mood but Patrick just shrugged and laughed about it. That’s why I so clearly remember @BrentSeveryn goal that game. Still have the stick. https://t.co/76BI0E4YGD
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
