Free Shipping Arizona Coyotes Hoodies Adidas Hockey Wholesale

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Authorities say Arizona Coyotes forward Richard Panik was arrested for trespassing after refusing to leave the entrance of a bar.

Scottsdale police say Panik, 27, was arrested at the Bevvy the night of April 8, the day after the Coyotes’ season ended.

Police say Panik appeared to be intoxicated during his contact with officers.

He was booked into the Scottsdale City Jail and later released on a criminal citation.

In a statement Tuesday, Coyotes officials said they are aware of the incident and still gathering information.

Panik, who had 22 goals and 22 assists for the Chicago Blackhawks during the 2016-17 season, was traded to Arizona in January after getting six goals and 10 assists in 37 games for Chicago.

He had eight goals and 11 assists in 35 games for the Coyotes.

Discount Stitched MLB Detroit Tigers Jerseys Online

DETROIT — Felipe Rivero rebounded from a terrible season opener by working double duty for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The left-handed closer saved both games of Sunday’s doubleheader, helping the Pirates complete a sweep of their three-game series against the Detroit Tigers with victories of 1-0 and 8-6 on Sunday. Rivero struck out the side in the first game, then held off a Detroit rally in the nightcap.

Rivero allowed four runs in Friday’s opener , which Pittsburgh went on to win in 13 innings. Manager Clint Hurdle showed little hesitation going back to him Sunday in both games.

“We want to use him to close games — games we’ve got the lead, when those opportunities present themselves,” Hurdle said. “We had an opportunity to do it in the first game. Obviously, we had an opportunity to come back and do it in the second game.”

Trevor Williams pitched six no-hit innings in Sunday’s first game, then the Pirates won the nightcap behind homers from Josh Harrison, Starling Marte and David Freese.

Miguel Cabrera homered for Detroit in the second game.

Rivero struck out the side in the ninth to end the opener and got the final three outs of the nightcap after coming in with a man on second and an 8-5 lead.

“Would have preferred not to, but once we got to that point, he’s our guy,” Hurdle said. “There’s no use putting him in in a tighter spot. He had some wiggle room.”

It was a disappointing opening series for the Tigers, who thought they’d won Friday before a replay review took away the winning run in the 10th.

“I don’t want to get in trouble, but we actually won one game already,” said Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire, who was ejected Friday. “We really did win that game. I don’t care what anybody says. It’s three tough days of baseball because of the weather, but our guys are playing and they’re excited. We should be 1-2.”

Chad Kuhl (1-0) allowed four runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings in the night game. Detroit starter Ryan Carpenter lasted three innings in his major league debut, yielding three runs and five hits.

Harrison hit a two-run homer in the third — it looked initially like he’d have to settle for a double when the ball bounced back into play, but the call was changed to a home run after a review on his flyball to the left-field corner. Marte added a solo shot one out later to give the Pirates a 3-2 lead.

It was 3-all before Pittsburgh scored five runs in the fifth. Buck Farmer (0-1) allowed a sacrifice fly by Jordy Mercer, then another run came home on a wild pitch. Francisco Cervelli added an RBI single, then Freese connected for a two-run shot to left.

Williams (1-0) was pulled with a no-hitter in progress after six innings in the first game. He threw 84 pitches, his count boosted by five walks, and was replaced by Michael Feliz to start the seventh.

“I was playing Russian roulette all day with the walks, so I totally understood the move,” Williams said. “It was 1-0 when I came out and it ended up 1-0, so it worked perfectly.”

Nicholas Castellanos quickly ended the no-hit bid with a one-out double off Feliz. George Kontos pitched the eighth and Rivero finished the combined two-hitter.

Michael Fulmer (0-1) gave up one run, four hits and two walks in eight innings, striking out three.

Gregory Polanco’s RBI double gave the Pirates a 1-0 lead in the first, and that held up as the game’s only run.

The doubleheader was scheduled after a rainout Saturday. Attendance was 14,858 for the first game and 18,438 for the nightcap.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Pirates: RHP Joe Musgrove, who has dealt with shoulder trouble, threw 92 pitches in a Gulf Coast League game Saturday and is expected to join the Pirates’ rotation in the next week.

Tigers: LF Victor Reyes left the second game with a right forearm laceration after he went diving after a shallow fly and accidentally took SS Jose Iglesias’ legs out from under him. Iglesias held on for the third out of the fifth inning but appeared frustrated, flinging the ball all the way over the fence in left. The game marked Reyes’ major league debut. His injury required stitches. … RHP Mike Fiers (back) is scheduled to throw a simulated game Monday at Detroit’s extended spring training facility and could come off the disabled list later in the week.

RIVERO VERSUS CABRERA

Rivero went to a 2-0 count on Cabrera to start the ninth inning of the first game, but got three straight swinging strikes on fastballs.

“I was behind in the count, so he knew I was going to be throwing fastballs,” Rivero said. “He just couldn’t catch up with them.”

Cabrera hit an RBI double off Rivero in the second game.

DEBUT
Carpenter was recalled from Triple-A Toledo to be the 26th man during the doubleheader. The Tigers returned him to the minors afterward.

“I didn’t have my best stuff, by any means,” Carpenter said. “But obviously, it was awesome to get out there and get my debut. It’s something I’m very thankful for.”

UP NEXT

Pittsburgh has a quick turnaround for its home opener Monday against Minnesota. Jameson Taillon (8-7, 4.44 ERA last season) starts for the Pirates against Lance Lynn (11-8, 3.43).

Francisco Liriano (6-7, 5.66) makes his Tigers debut Monday against Kansas City’s Jason Hammel (8-13, 5.29).

The buzz surrounding a possible Jimmy Graham-New Orleans Saints reunion picked up on Monday.

New Orleans was the most popular free-agent destination for Graham in a poll of ESPN NFL insiders. Then a report from the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said Graham isn’t expected to be back with the Seattle Seahawks, and the Saints should be among several teams interested.

That led to an excited response from Saints running back Mark Ingram. Last week, Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan was openly courting Graham to come back to New Orleans.

How realistic is the idea?

That’s hard to say, given that Graham and the Saints didn’t part on the best of terms when Graham was traded to Seattle in 2015. Graham tweeted to former teammate Akiem Hicks later that year that he should “feel blessed u got out of there.”

The relationship apparently turned south when Graham and the Saints battled over his contract in 2014, including an arbitration hearing over whether he should be considered a tight end or wide receiver.

I have not been able to glean from any sources yet whether a reunion is possible. But I also have not heard anyone suggest that a lingering rift could prevent it. Both sides should definitely be interested, given that neither has been as effective without the other.

Not only did Graham’s production dip in Seattle (partly due to a torn patellar tendon), but the Saints also have not been able to replace him successfully in their offense, despite spending big on Coby Fleener in free agency in 2016.

Last year, the Saints ranked last in the NFL in tight end receiving yardage (476) and 31st in tight end receptions (45), according to ESPN Stats & Information.

The Saints still ranked fifth in the NFL in passing yards overall. But the lack of a go-to tight end really hurt them on third downs, in which they finished a stunning 19th in the NFL with a conversion rate of 37.6 percent.

That’s why I have tight end ranked No. 2 in my position-by-position breakdown of the Saints’ offseason needs. If they don’t sign Graham, they could pursue the Philadelphia Eagles’ Trey Burton, the Cincinnati Bengals’ Tyler Eifert or a premium draft pick, among other options:

Current depth chart:

Coby Fleener. Age 29, signed through 2020. 2018 salary and bonuses: $6.4 million ($3.4 million has already been guaranteed). 2018 salary-cap number: $8 million.

Josh Hill. Age 27, signed through 2018. 2018 salary and bonuses: $2 million. 2018 salary-cap number: $2.833 million.

Michael Hoomanawanui. Age 29, signed through 2018. 2018 salary and bonuses: $1.6 million. 2018 salary-cap number: $1.933 million.

John Phillips. Age 30, unrestricted free agent.

Garrett Griffin. Turned 24 on Sunday, scheduled to become exclusive-rights free agent in 2019. 2018 salary and bonuses: $555,000. 2018 salary-cap number: $555,000.

Analysis:

Graham put up some outrageous numbers in his five years in New Orleans, including 99 catches for 1,310 yards in 2011 and 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2013.

But he comes with more question marks now that he is 31 years old and has battled injuries and inconsistency the past three years in Seattle (57 catches for 520 yards and 10 touchdowns last season; 65-923-6 in 2016; 48-605-2 in 11 games before the knee injury in 2015).

Plus, Graham was never a standout blocker. And the Saints deemed him expendable for a reason in 2015: deciding that their offense would be fine without such a major investment, while the defense and offensive line needed more help (just like their decision to trade away receiver Brandin Cooks last year).

The Saints looked smart in 2015, when veteran tight end Benjamin Watson had a career year (74-825-6). But they haven’t gotten anywhere close to the production they expected from Fleener over the past two years (a total of 72-926-5 in 27 games before his season ended with a concussion last year).
It’s possible that the Saints could consider releasing Fleener this year, especially if they invest heavily in another free agent or draft pick. Although they have already guaranteed $3.4, they could save $3 million by releasing him.

Hill and Hoomanawanui, meanwhile, have both been very solid and versatile backups for the Saints, who are good blockers and decent pass-catchers. But they’re both better in part-time roles, and both of them are heading into the final year of their contracts.

Cheap Stitched Minnesota Vikings Jerseys Hoodies

A player who wins Super Bowl MVP honors doesn’t often find himself on a different team the next season.

It has happened before but not recently. The last quarterback to lead his team to a championship and sign elsewhere in the following free-agency period was Trent Dilfer, who won Super Bowl XXXV with the Baltimore Ravens and then joined the Seattle Seahawks in 2001. The Ravens actually got rid of both of their quarterbacks after the 2000 season, additionally cutting Tony Banks, who was benched in favor of Dilfer.

Nick Foles faces a uncommon situation this offseason. After leading the Philadelphia Eagles to their first Super Bowl in franchise history, the quarterback could become a hot trade prospect for teams willing to make executive VP of football operations Howie Roseman an offer the team can’t refuse. Foles, who was brought in to back up Carson Wentz last offseason, is set to make $7 million with Philadelphia in 2018. But with a roster that’s roughly $10 million over the salary cap and Wentz expected to return from injury, Philadelphia could decide to trade Foles and earn even more in the process — perhaps a first-round draft pick.

One team that might be interested in making Foles part of the equation as it decides its future at quarterback is the Minnesota Vikings.

The offseason is officially underway for all 32 teams after Super Bowl LII wrapped up in Minneapolis, and the Vikings are still searching to fulfill their top priority of hiring an offensive coordinator. General manager Rick Spielman said last week that they hope to interview “maybe one or two more” for the position, which is presumably why there hasn’t been a hire yet after four interviews that took place beginning the Friday after the Vikings lost the NFC Championship Game.

One reason for the holdup, as reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, is that Minnesota is interested in talking with Philadelphia quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo, but cannot do so until Feb. 14, which is 10 days from the end of the Eagles’ season.

If DeFilippo ends up being the guy coach Mike Zimmer, Spielman and the Wilf family want to bring on as the next offensive coordinator, how appropriate might it be for him to bring his Super Bowl-winning quarterback with him via a trade?

Even if the Vikings decide to go elsewhere with their offensive coordinator search, keeping Foles in the picture makes sense.

How the Vikings decide who will be their quarterback in 2018 will play into the likelihood of Minnesota contending for a Super Bowl title again next season. The clarity of the Vikings’ quarterback picture is like a badly developed Polaroid. On one hand, Minnesota has three quarterbacks set to be free agents in March that it could choose from. Case Keenum leading the Vikings to a 13-3 record and NFC title-game appearance seems like the safest bet with the questions surrounding the knees of Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford, but who’s to say Minnesota can’t find a way to bring back two of their three current QBs? And what if the Vikings decide to clean house? It would make just as much sense to throw Foles into the mix as it would Kirk Cousins, who unlike the Eagles’ quarterback, hasn’t won a playoff game.

In three postseason victories, Foles completed 72.6 percent of his passes for 971 yards, six touchdowns and one interception. The argument that a team can win a championship with a “system quarterback” is valid, as is the case with Foles’ success within the parameters of the run-pass option. But the throws he made to Alshon Jeffery, Corey Clement and Zach Ertz against the New England Patriots — all for touchdowns — showed that he’s more than a system QB.
An argument about Foles’ past ups and downs will certainly surface. After recording a 27-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio in 2013, Foles threw seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions the following season.

So it raises the question: If the Vikings choose to look outside of their roster for next year’s QB, is it too early to go all-in on someone like Foles, especially since Minnesota is looking for a long-term solution, not a quick fix, at the position?

“That’s the ultimate plan, whether at the quarterback position or any position, you’re hoping that you’re making that decision for the long haul, not for a short-term solution,” Spielman said. “But the one thing that you can’t predict is you can’t predict injuries.”

The Eagles winning a Super Bowl with a backup quarterback who was thrust into the mix much later in the season than when Keenum took over for Bradford points to the fact that it indeed can be done. In the right system, with the right coaching, Philadelphia got the best out of Foles, who would have arguably equal the playmakers in Minnesota as he does currently.
