TORONTO – Pitting their own draft picks against free agent invitees was a new wrinkle at the Toronto Maple Leafs’ development camp this year and perhaps, unexpectedly, it was the invitees who showed the draft prospects a thing or two. Namely, how to win a scrimmage. The free agent-laden Team Sittler topped Team Clark in both intra-squad scrimmages (by scores of 6-3 and 6-5 on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively) that capped off an intense week of on-ice drills and off-ice seminars.
TORONTO – These days, Timothy Liljegren is headlining the Maple Leafs defensive prospect pool as a first-round draft choice with serious NHL potential. But his relationship with the very position he's grown up playing wasn’t always so amicable. Liljegren first took to the ice around age five, drawn to the rink by watching older boys in his neighbourhood playing. Like most kids, Liljegren started off as a forward, and the eventual move to defence didn’t go over well.
TORONTO – While spending his summer in very familiar haunts, Toronto Maple Leafs forward Connor Brown is navigating rough new waters as a pro. Subbing in as a guest coach at the Leafs hockey school Tuesday morning at MasterCard Centre, Brown was all smiles as one camper after another approached for a photo op with the Etobicoke native. He was once a local kid skating in Leafs’ camp himself; now Brown’s a second-year NHL player - without a contract.
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".
