To call Drake Batherson’s road to becoming the QMJHL’s leading scorer and an emerging NHL prospect unconventional would be quite the understatement. Throw in shortcomings that got him thinking about quitting hockey and his status is even more remarkable. “It’s a long road coming and it’s started to pay off,” said the 19-year-old Cape Breton Screaming Eagles centre ahead of the first of two QMJHL Canada Russia Series games.
Of all the things rising Ottawa Senators prospect Alex Formenton is becoming known for, tenacity, fearlessness and a scorer’s shot are at or near the top of the list. In honing those attributes, Formenton can thank Wendel Clark, the former Toronto Maple Leafs great who coached him in minor hockey, as well as being a mentor and family friend. “Wendel helped me out a lot on the ice when I was younger,” said Formenton, an 18-year-old with the OHL’s London Knights.
With roughly a month left before invitations are extended for the Canadian world junior camp, there isn’t much time for CHL players to make a good impression. The biggest opportunity remaining occurs during the Canada Russia Series, which begins Monday with the two-game WHL portion before the OHL and QMJHL all-stars get a crack at their rivals. Positive performances in the six-game showcase will help determine who’ll be in St. Catharines, Ont., for camp on Dec. 12.
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".
