The newest crop of NHL stars is ready to take the stage. The 2017 NHL entry draft gets underway on Friday evening as two of the league’s most busy days get started in Chicago. The first round of 31 picks — thanks to the addition of Vegas for next season — will take up all of Friday evening. On Saturday, the final six rounds will fly as 217 total hockey players will be chosen in the two-day madness.
The NHL offseason is in full swing, and so are the league’s general managers. We’re nearing some big dates for hockey fans — including the draft and the start of free agency — and it’s often hard to keep up with all the moves teams make as the days go by. Friday, the first day of the NHL draft, has already had some stunners. The Blackhawks and Coyotes were the most active heading into the afternoon, surprisingly.
The Chicago Blackhawks are not done wheeling and dealing. Moments after trading Niklas Hjalmarsson to the Arizona Coyotes, the Blackhawks have sent forwards Artemi Panarin and Tyler Motte to Columbus for Brandon Saad and goaltender Anton Forsberg. Also going back in the trade is a draft pick swap. The Blackhawks get Columbus’ fifth round pick in 2018 and the Blue Jackets get Chicago’s sixth round pick this year. Elliotte Friedman first had the scoop minutes after the Hjalmarsson deal went down.
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".
