A congratulatory tweet from one of the Moose Jaw Warriors’ most distinguished alumni helped Jayden Halbgewachs appreciate his rare scoring feat. It is hockey code not to dwell on what you just did. The scoreboard will always read 0-0 when the next game starts. That said, major junior hockey’s top scorers typically hit the 50-goal mark sometime around early March – not on Jan. 19, like recent San Jose Sharks signing Halbgewachs did last week for the Western Hockey League-leading Warriors.
The usual suspects don’t die, they just regenerate. The takeaway from the duelling trade deadlines in the OHL and WHL last week might well have been how three teams that have hoisted hardware within the past 24 months – the London Knights in particular, along with the Windsor Spitfires, and the Brandon Wheat Kings in the Western league – serviced their futures without going full tank.
It might not be so daring if everyone does it. For sheer entertainment value, the willingness of a quartet of Ontario Hockey League’s general managers – Kyle Raftis of Sault Ste. Marie, the Hamilton Bulldogs’ Steve Staios, Kitchener Rangers’ Mike McKenzie, Kingston Frontenacs’ Darren Keily – to trade it all for just a little more has made the lead-up to the league’s deadline go to 11. Sports is supposed to be fun to follow, after all.

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".
