Think of the children. But pay even more attention to the adults. The NHL’s draft weekend is about the hopes and dreams and untapped potential of 18-year-olds. Yet increasingly — and especially in a low-tide year after the back-to-back generational tsunamis of Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews — the draft is about juggling and firming up rosters of established players. In our cap world, the NHL’s free agency market is losing some of its juice. In March, the term “trade dudline” was coined.
Keep it here all Friday evening for a blow-by latest news, rumours and notes coming from the NHL Draft floor in Chicago. There. Will. Be. More. Trades. And we’ll be updating this live draft blog with all the latest happenings, all night long. Reminder: You can watch live coverage of the 2017 NHL Draft on Sportsnet and Sportsnet Now, beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET. 5:25 p.m.
The grand reveal of the Golden Knights’ roster and a flurry of player movement pushed the actual awards portion of the NHL Awards to the sidebar Wednesday night in Las Vegas. But some fantastic, historic, heart-tugging and surprising moments took place outside of Steve Yzerman finding a way to not buy out Jason Garrison. Auston Matthews turned the Calder Trophy race into a Roadrunner cartoon, Erik Karlsson had a night to forget, and the Canucks were the butt of the night’s best joke.
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".
