When he arrived from Norway last week, Roykas Marthinsen, the Capitals' seventh-round pick (No. 213) in the 2017 NHL Draft, never imagined he'd skate on a line with captain Alex Ovechkin, who was named one of the 100 Greatest NHL Players last season. He did a double take when he looked at the posted list of practice groups for the first day of on-ice sessions Friday and saw his name at right wing on a line with Ovechkin at left wing and center Lars Eller.
This is a busy time, with preseason games underway, rookies looking to make a name for themselves and veterans aiming to lock down roster spots. Each day, we will have all the updates of note right here. Toronto Maple Leafs forward Patrick Marleau scored a goal in his preseason debut, a 5-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators. "It's definitely nice to get one and get some confidence and just build off of that," Marleau said after playing in the NHL for the first time other than with the San Jose Sharks.
Hurricane Irma threw a wrench into that plan, forcing Haapala to evacuate to Boston for a few days along with many of his new teammates and team employees. For the 23-year-old, the experience was a bit of an eye opener. Rookie left wing Henrik Haapala arrived from Finland three weeks ago with the intention of using the time before beginning his first NHL training camp with the Florida Panthers to get used to his new surroundings. "I've never seen that big of a storm in Finland," Haapala said.
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".
