Brockville's Scott Halpenny came to the Erie Otters with a bang and left the team even louder. Halpenny joined the OHL team as a scout in 2012 with Erie picking a 15-year-old Connor McDavid, who was granted Exceptional Player status, as their first choice. Like a genuine scout does, Halpenny counts his years in the amount of drafts he's done with a particular team. He did six with Erie.
Those who don't learn history are doomed to repeat it and the Brockville Braves are hoping to learn from last year's mistakes in hopes of not repeating their results. The Braves finished sixth in the regular season and then saw an early exit in the playoffs against the Ottawa Jr. Senators in the first round last year. Getting rid of that salty taste in their mouth started Monday with the team's training camp, which takes place all week in Cardinal.
How about a little gold for your birthday? Serron Noel spent his 17th birthday in Czech Republic playing in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup with his Team Canada teammates celebrating the occasion by getting him a cake. The real icing on the cake for the former U18 Braves player came four days later when Canada won gold at the tournament after beating the host country 4-1 last Saturday. "I wasn't used to having hockey on my birthday, especially because it's in the middle of August," Noel said.
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".
