NHL trade news: Golden Knights deal Erik Haula to Hurricanes for prospect, draft pick

first_imgThe Hurricanes are making some moves to help out their scoring.Vegas has traded winger Erik Haula to the Hurricanes for prospect Nicolas Roy and a conditional 2021 fifth-round pick, the Golden Knights announced Wednesday. NHL trade rumors: Oilers have contacted Hurricanes about Petr Mrazek Haula could be the player to do that with the propensity he showed for scoring goals two years ago.Carolina was great last season at preventing goals, finishing tied for seventh with the Lightning in goals allowed with 221, but it was only so-so in scoring, as it finished 16th in goals scored with 243. The Golden Knights have acquired forward Nicolas Roy and a 2021 conditional fifth round pick from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for Erik Haula. #VegasBornhttps://t.co/IAGU52ZrpJ— Vegas Golden Knights (@GoldenKnights) June 27, 2019Haula, 28, scored just two goals in 15 games for Vegas last year, but two years ago he scored 29 in 76 games as the Golden Knights went to the Stanley Cup Final in the first year in franchise history.It has long been asked whether the Hurricanes would start to improve their scoring up front while moving some men off the blue line, as well, and that has happened over the last few days. Related News NHL trade rumors: Canucks acquire center J.T. Miller from Lightning NHL trade rumors: Maple Leafs listening to offers for Nazem Kadri, Kasperi Kapanen First, Carolina dealt defenseman Calvin de Haan and a minor-league forward to the Blackhawks for defenseman Gustav Forsling and goaltender Anton Forsberg.And now, the team has picked up Haula in a deal for Roy, 22, who has yet to score a point in limited time over two seasons with the Hurricanes.Carolina surpassed all expectations this postseason by earning a trip to the Eastern Conference finals, but the team isn’t going to be content with that, as it is making moves to try to put itself in a better position to go deeper in the playoffs next year.last_img read more

Women’s World Cup 2019: Megan Rapinoe could have taken penalty vs. England, Jill Ellis says

Women’s World Cup 2019: Alex Morgan sends USA into final despite Megan Rapinoe’s absence USWNT vs. England: Sports stars react to Women’s World Cup thriller Rapinoe said herself she expects to be ready for Sunday’s final and Ellis conceded that despite her injury, she would have considered calling upon her penalty expertise if a shootout was required.”Megan’s got a slight strain to her hamstring so wasn’t available today,” Ellis said at a news conference.FYI: we got another big record today pic.twitter.com/F1cLHAq6B3— U.S. Soccer WNT (@USWNT) July 2, 2019″Obviously I feel we have a really good, deep bench and called upon other players and I think they did a fantastic job. Yeah, (it’s) a hamstring strain.”I thought Pressy did fantastic. There was an outside chance Rapinoe could take a penalty, so thereby we didn’t want to extend ourselves more than we had to in terms of giving our starting XI when we needed to. Megan Rapinoe’s hamstring strain prevented her from starting the United States’ semifinal against England, but Jill Ellis said she may have called on her if the game had gone to a penalty shootout.There was a notable omission from USA’s starting XI when it was revealed prior to kickoff, Rapinoe only among the substitutes despite scoring braces in back-to-back games to fire the defending champions to the last four. Women’s World Cup 2019: Megan Rapinoe says she’ll be ready for final after sitting out vs. England with injury Curiously, there was no explanation for the outspoken Rapinoe’s absence, though the fact she only watched on during the prematch warm-up suggested something was amiss.Ellis’ team did not miss their star forward too much, though, Rapinoe’s replacement Christen Press scoring the first goal and Alex Morgan the winner as England, who had leveled through Ellen White in the first half, were beaten 2-1 in Lyon. Related News “Every coach wants to keep their cards as close to their chest as possible, fortunately we didn’t have to go to penalty kicks but that was an option, potentially.”I don’t know about secrecy. We released it when we were supposed to release it.”Once she was warming up, I think you could figure it out.” read more

Former Steeler Merril Hoge part of suit claiming Roundup caused his cancer

first_img“By reason of the foregoing,” the suit says, “plaintiff (Hoge) is severely and permanently injured.”According to the lawsuit, Hoge, 54, began working on a farm as a boy in Idaho in 1977 and was exposed to Roundup as he mixed and sprayed weedkiller on crops and other plants as part of his job. He was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2003. Related News Former Steelers running back and longtime ESPN analyst Merril Hoge has sued Monsanto, joining more than 18,000 others in alleging that the company’s popular weedkiller Roundup causes cancer, CNN.com reported.In his suit, filed this month in U.S. District Court in Idaho, Hoge claims that Roundup caused his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, resulting in permanent “physical pain and mental anguish,” accusing Monsanto of negligence and says the company promoted “false, misleading, and untrue” statements about the weedkiller’s safety. NFL news and notes: Michael Thomas gets record deal; Tom Brady shelves contract talks Ezekiel Elliott contract update: Cowboys, running back not close on deal, report sayscenter_img He is now among some 18,400 other plaintiffs suing Monsanto, whose parent company, Bayer, says hundreds of studies over 40 years support Roundup’s safety.”We have great sympathy for any individual with cancer, but the extensive body of science on glyphosate-based herbicides over four decades supports the conclusion that Roundup does not cause (non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma),” Bayer said in a statement Wednesday to CNN.com. Of the thousands of lawsuits claiming that Roundup caused plaintiffs’ cancer, only three have gone to trial, but juries have sided with the cancer patients in all three — including a California jury in May that just awarded a couple $2 billion in damages, though the verdict is being appealed, Monsanto said.Hoge’s case was transferred to multidistrict litigation in Northern California, his attorney Joseph Osborne told CNN.com.Hoge, a 10th-round pick of the Steelers in the 1987 draft, played seven seasons for Pittsburgh before retiring after one season with the Bears in 1994, his career cut short because of multiple concussions. (Ironically, he co-authored a book, “Brainwashed,” that questioned the science behind CTE, sparking a controversy last year.)He was a football analyst for ESPN from 1996-2017.last_img read more
