CHICAGO -- This year's NHL Draft did not have star power of the previous couple years, where Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel, Auston Matthews and Patrik Laine dominated the headlines. Nor did it have the expected flurry of big-time trades. What it did have, like each draft every year, was winners and losers. Here's a quick look at each, knowing that in most cases it will take years to really evaluate what took place this weekend..
CHICAGO -- Nolan Patrick conducts himself less like the 18-year-old he is and more like the veteran he will be one day, ultimately leading the Philadelphia Flyers to select him second overall in the NHL Draft on Friday night. Having a father and an uncle who both played in the National Hockey League certainly prepared him for this moment. "They've been my biggest two role models for everything," Patrick said of his father, Steve, and uncle, James. "Their personalities are a lot different.
CHICAGO -- When Nico Hischier climbed on stage and slipped the New Jersey Devils jersey on after being selected first overall in Friday's NHL Draft, it was not the first time the 18-year-old Swiss center wore the distinctive red Devils sweater. "I was really young, maybe ten, playing in a tournament in Switzerland and you wear the jersey of an NHL team, it's always random," Hischier explained to reporters at the United Center. "That year we were the New Jersey Devils.
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".
