CHICAGO >> With the New Jersey Devils and Philadelphia Flyers holding the first two picks in the 2017 NHL Draft, the selections each team made would not only shape their heated rivalry, but the direction of their respective franchises for years to come. As expected, New Jersey selected center Nico Hischier, while Philadelphia took fellow center Nolan Patrick; Hischier became the first Swiss-born player ever taken with the first overall pick. “It feels unbelievable, I’m speechless,” he said.
LAS VEGAS – An awkward ending to his time with the Somerset Patriots wasn’t enough to derail Donovan Hand from a return to affiliated baseball. Now, he finds himself one phone call away from the majors. The 31-year-old right-handed pitcher joined the Patriots about a month into last season, just one year removed from his second stint in the big leagues, this time with the Cincinnati Reds.
LAS VEGAS >> For the first time in 17 years, the National Hockey League held an Expansion Draft, with this particular one set to put together the inaugural roster of the Vegas Golden Knights. The rules were simple: Each of the existing 30 teams could protect either seven forwards, three defensemen and one goaltender or one goaltender and eight skaters regardless of position.
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".
