We are two weeks away from officially knowing the fate of Jaromir Jagr. For the past few months, the 45-year-old veteran has been without a NHL team. Now that the league’s offseason has come to a close, it’s apparently time for Jagr to choose. According to KHL insider Aivis Kalnins, Jagr’s agent has confirmed that he will announce his team on October 5. There are a few factors as to why Jagr has yet to find an NHL team.
It looks like the Matt Duchene sweepstakes have another contender. On Tuesday, The Ottawa Sun reported that the Senators were being “aggressive” in pursuit of the Colorado Avalanche forward. According to Bruce Garrioch, Ottawa has “done more than kick tires” for Duchene. While the Senators have been in the running for Duchene, they were never one of the top frontrunners for the centerman all offseason.
In the midst of the NHL preseason, the Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings are on the verge of making league history. This week, the Canucks and Kings will play two preseason games in China, marking the NHL’s first official foray into the country as a part of the 2017 NHL China Games. The NHL announced the initiative back in March in partnership with Bloomage International and O.R.G. Packaging, along with the NHL Players Association.
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".
