Travis Green, the new coach of the Vancouver Canucks, reflected on how the challenges of his NHL playing career have readied him to lead a rebuilding team whose roster will be young and inexperienced. Green had been a hot-shot goal scorer as a teenager in the WHL and was drafted 23rd overall by the New York Islanders in 1989. But it took Green three years to make the Islanders and another three years before he produced a 20-plus goal season in the NHL, at the age of 25.
Snowboarders Mark McMorris and Maxence Parrot have met the qualifications to be named to Canada's team for the 2018 Winter Olympics, Canada Snowboard will announce Tuesday. The two snowboarders would be gold-medal favourites in both snowboard slopestyle and the new event of snowboard big air next February in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
It is almost three years into Trevor Linden's tenure in charge of the Vancouver Canucks and the work to rebuild the team is unfinished. The Canucks are mired near the bottom of the NHL for a second consecutive season - officially eliminated last Thursday night, more than two weeks before the regular season ends.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
