As homecomings go, they don't get much better than Brandon Saad's return to the United Center on Thursday night. In his first game action as a Blackhawk since being traded to Columbus in 2015, Saad recorded a hat trick in a 6-1 victory over Detroit and was named the No. 1 star. Granted, it was just a preseason game. And yes, the performance came against a slew of Red Wings prospects and minor-leaguers.
One week into Chicago Blackhawks training camp and we've seen an awful lot of 19-year-old Alex DeBrincat skating on a line with Patrick Kane and Nick Schmaltz. The prevailing thought is DeBrincat -- the speedy jitterbug who scored 167 goals the last three seasons in the OHL -- would be better off starting in the AHL, rather than making the leap to the best league in the world.
John McDonough, Stan Bowman, Joel Quenneville, Duncan Keith, Patrick Kane, Troy Murray and many others greeted Eddie Olczyk with hugs and handshakes Thursday morning at the United Center, all of them thrilled to see the former Blackhawks great and TV analyst in good spirits. "Eddie looked good. Great seeing him," Quenneville said. "We're thinking about him every day and wish him nothing but the best. …"We had a good discussion right before we went on the ice. He was excited.
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".
