The game of hockey has taken six-time Olympian Hayley Wickenheiser all over the world. But hockey in the Himalayas, in the remote region of Ladakh, India, 12,000 feet above sea level, is a first for the former captain of the Canadian women's national team. "I've never skated this high — I can tell you the first shift that we took, about 20 seconds in I could barely breathe, " said Wickenheiser, who is in the city of Leh in the northern state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Edmonton Oilers were hoping to pick up where they left off before their bye week, but the team has learned they'll have to do it without the help of centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Nugent-Hopkins, who is leading the team with 16 goals, was initially thought to have a bruised sternum after being on the receiving end of a punishing hit by Vegas Golden Knights defenceman Braydon McNabb. The hit happened during the second period of the Oilers' 3-2 overtime win Saturday.
It doesn't get much more Canadian than a bunch of kids and a game of shinny at the outdoor rink. But when one of the "kids" is an up-and-coming NHL hockey star, it vaults the game to the category of Canadian dream. That dream became a reality Tuesday afternoon for Edmonton nine-year-olds Eric Ripka and Logan Green, who pretty much had the Crestwood community rink all to themselves except for a guy on skates and his buddy who was on the ice in his runners.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
