Roman Josi Jersey

DALLAS (AP) Having no picks in the first three rounds made it look as though it would be a quiet Kyle Turris Jersey , boring and ineffective weekend for the Calgary Flames.Instead, they became one of the biggest winners at the NHL draft by acquiring 23-year-old forward Elias Lindholm and 21-year-old defenseman Noah Hanifin in a five-player trade with Carolina on Saturday. It cost the Flames defenseman Dougie Hamilton, winger Micheal Ferland and prospect Adam Fox, but they got younger and may have restored their lineup to its rightful order.Lindholm is a natural center, but could be the perfect fit on Calgary’s first line alongside Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan. Moving Hamilton will allow T.J. Brodie to slide back on to the first defensive pairing with Mark Giordano, while Hanifin could benefit from playing with those veterans on the blue line.”I think Noah is just scratching the surface,” general manager Brad Treliving said. ”We’ve got some guys on the blue line who can produce. We also want guys who want to be in Calgary. Both players talking today, in Elias and Noah Youth Matt Irwin Jersey , they’re excited to get out there.”Beyond the Flames, here are some more winners and losers from the NHL draft:WINNER: PHILIPP GRUBAUERAfter lifting the Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals, Grubauer was traded to the Colorado Avalanche where he’ll initially split time with Semyon Varlamov but should take over as the starter after next season. Grubauer signed a $10 million, three-year contract in the biggest payday of his career.LOSER: NEW YORK ISLANDERSThey got strong value in first-round picks Oliver Wahlstrom and Noah Dobson, but didn’t agree to terms on a new deal with John Tavares before he could begin meeting with other teams Sunday. Tavares will host five teams in the coming days and could become a free agent July 1, which would be devastating for the Islanders.”I have no disappointment, no discouragement,” GM Lou Lamoriello said. ”He’s earned every right to make whatever choice he has. The most important thing is that we hope in the end that he’s an Islander.”WINNER: BUFFALO SABRESAfter years of wandering and floundering Womens Mattias Ekholm Jersey , the Sabres have a franchise defenseman in No. 1 pick Rasmus Dahlin. This was set in stone in April when Buffalo won the lottery, but the organization will get an up-close look at the Swedish playmaker at prospect camp and has every reason to be excited about the future.”He’s a young player, he’s 18 years old, there’s high expectations down the road,” GM Jason Botterill said. ”But it’s going to be imperative to us to protect him, put him in and put him in the right situations so he can have success.”LOSER: ENTERTAINMENTThe only trades involving NHL players were the deal by Carolina and Calgary and the Capitals trading Grubauer and defenseman Brooks Orpik to Colorado. None of the top 10 picks changed hands, and most of the two days went off without drama.WINNER: ILYA KOVALCHUKThe Kontinental Hockey League’s leading scorer and Olympic MVP had plenty of suitors and wound up agreeing to a three-year deal with the Los Angeles Kings worth $6.25 million a season. The 35-year-old is returning to the NHL on the same deal Patrick Marleau got from the Toronto Maple Leafs a year ago, which is a coup for Kovalchuk.LOSER: MONTREAL CANADIENSRumors persisted about Montreal trading captain Max Pacioretty or even acquiring center Ryan O’Reilly from Buffalo. Neither move happened P.K Subban Jersey , leaving Marc Bergevin with a lengthy to-do list after already trading Alex Galchenyuk to Arizona for Max Domi.— ST. LOUIS (AP) — After the St. Louis Blues caught the short end of the stick on an obscure NHL rule, Ryan O’Reilly bailed them out with a breakaway winner.O’Reilly scored a short-handed goal 2:05 into overtime to lift St. Louis over the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 on Friday night.O’Reilly’s forehand finish was memorable, but the buzz postgame was about the call that put the Blues on the penalty kill to begin with.Vladimir Tarasenko was called for playing with illegal equipment after picking up teammate Colton Parayko’s stick. Blues interim coach Craig Berube said the penalty was called because the 6-foot-6 Parayko has an exemption to the NHL’s stick length rule. The 6-foot Tarasenko does not.“If it was somebody else’s stick, say it was (Jaden Schwartz’s) stick, he could pick it up and use it,” Berube said.O’Reilly scored 34 seconds later after being sprung by a pass from Robert Bortuzzo. That eased St. Louis’ frustration after the surprising penalty call.“I had no idea,” O’Reilly said of the rule. “I think our whole bench had no idea, but with the win tonight I don’t think we care. We got it done.”Parayko scored twice and Ivan Barbashev also had a goal for the Blues Authentic Pekka Rinne Jersey Kids , who won for the third time in four games. Jake Allen made 39 saves including several game-savers late in the third and in overtime.J.T. Compher had a goal and an assist, and Sven Andrighetto and Matt Calvert also scored for the Avalanche, who dropped their third straight game. Philipp Grubauer made 24 saves, but lost for the first time in his last 10 starts.Avalanche coach Jared Bednar felt his team left a point on the table.“We’ve got our best players on the ice on a 4-3 power play and we give up a breakaway,” Bednar said. “It should be us putting a dagger through them and getting two points. It has to be. We have to better than that. The decision we make with the puck there, it cost us the game so that’s it.”Parayko put St. Louis ahead 3-2 with 9 minutes left in the third. It was the second career two-goal game for Parayko, the other coming on Oct. 13, 2015 at Calgary.Compher’s power-play goal tied it with 6:50 left.Parayko gave the Blues a 1-0 lead at 3:24 of the first period with his second goal in four games on a one-timer from just inside the blue line.Andrighetto tied it on a breakaway at 5:42 of the first. It was his first goal in eight games.Calvert gave the Avalanche a 2-1 lead at 9:48 of the first Roman Josi Jersey , beating Allen between the legs on a wrap-around for his fourth goal of the season.Barbashev tied it with 40 seconds left in the first. Jay Bouwmeester set it up with a perfect pass through the crease to a streaking Barbashev who tipped it in.“I just kind of threw it at the net so it was a good play by him because there really wasn’t anything else,” Bouwmeester said. “Go to the net and look what happens.”NOTES: The Blues signed F Alexei Toropchenko to a three-year, entry level contract. The 19-year-old from Moscow was drafted in the fourth round (113th overall) in the 2017 draft. … Avalanche RW Mikko Rantanen extended his points streak to 13 games with an assist on Compher’s goal and is tied with Washington’s Alex Ovechkin for the longest active streak in the league. … The Blues scratched D Joel Edmundson and LW Zach Sanford. … The Avalanche scratched D Mark Alt and D Alexander Kerfoot.UP NEXTColorado: hosts Dallas on Saturday.St. Louis: hosts Calgary on Sunday.
