NEW YORK -- After getting run out of the playoffs in the first round by the eventual Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins, the New York Rangers made another move to improve their speed. http:///...blancas-y-negro.html .They also got a little younger in the process.The Rangers on Monday traded center Derick Brassard to the Ottawa Senators for forward Mika Zibanejad in a deal involving players coming off career seasons.The deal includes draft picks with the Rangers receiving the Senators second-round draft pick in 2018. Ottawa will get the Rangers seventh-round pick that year.I think the potential is there for more upside, Rangers general manager Jeff Gorton said of Zibanejad. He is just scratching the surface at age 23. There are not a lot of guys who have done what he has done as far as scored 20 before that age.Zibanejad skated in 81 games with Ottawa with 21 goals and 30 assists. He established career highs in games played, goals, assists, points, game-winning goals (seven), and faceoff win rate (50.5 percent). He has scored at least 20 goals in each of the past two seasons.The 28-year-old Brassard, who is returning to his hometown, had a career-high 27 goals and finished second on the team with 58 points in 80 games last season. His 31 assists were 10 less than the previous season.I was a little shocked when it happened today, Brassard said. But Im really happy to be joining the Sens and playing at home. I really like their team, I really like the balance of their team all the way from the goaltender all the way out to the forwards. I think theyre the up-and-coming team and with Guy Boucher being the coach, I think its going to be really good for the team.Zibanejad gives New York a player who has had success in the shootout. He has tallied a goal on 13 of his 28 career NHL shootout attempts, and he has five game-deciding goals in the shootout.Zibanejad led the Senators in game-winning goals, faceoff wins, and faceoffs taken, ranked third in short-handed goals (two), tied for third in games played, tied for fourth in assists, and ranked fifth in points and power-play points (11) in 2015-16. He also ranked third among Ottawa forwards in short-handed ice time per game (1:25).The 6-foot-2 Swede has skated in 281 NHL games over parts of five seasons (2011-12 to 2015-16), getting 64 goals and 87 assists. He was selected by Ottawa with the sixth overall pick in the 2011 draft.Brassard skated in 254 games with the Rangers over parts of four seasons, getting 69 goals and 105 assists. He was acquired by New York from Columbus in April 2013 in a multiplayer trade that sent forward Marian Gaborik to the Blue Jackets.Senators general manager Pierre Dorion believes Brassard is a better hockey player at this point than Zibanejad.Our ultimate goal is to make the playoffs again, and we feel that Dericks going to help us make the playoffs, Dorion said. Theres also more: We feel that Derick provides great talent, brings leadership into our room. Hes someone thats played a lot of games in the NHL more than Mika.Zibanejad will be a restricted free agent after the 2016-17 season and will earn $2.62 million.Brassard is under contract through 2018-19, earning $5 million annually.Gorton, who signed Michael Graber and Nathan Gerbe as free agents in the offseason in an effort to improve team speed, refused to say whether the Rangers were planning any other moves with the new found salary cap space.In other matters, Gorton said the Rangers decided not to buy out the contract of veteran defenseman Dan Girardi.We have seen some real good production out of him for many years, and he did by all accounts not have the kind of year we wanted or he wanted, Gorton said. We expect Dan to be better and he expects to be better. The buyout just didnt make sense for us.---AP Sports Writer Stephen Whyno in Washington contributed to this report. Air Max 90 Negras Baratas . World champions Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia won the gold medal with 237.71 points, Moore-Towers and Moscovitch followed at 208.45 and Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov of Russia were third at 187.

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Ryker Fyfes second career start sure went a lot better than his first.Fyfe passed for 220 yards and a touchdown while filling in for injured starter Tommy Armstrong Jr., leading No. 19 Nebraska to a 28-7 win over Maryland on Saturday.The Cornhuskers (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten) stayed alive in the West Division. They must win at Iowa on Friday and Wisconsin must lose to Minnesota on Saturday for Nebraska to go to the conference championship game.Fyfe, who walked on in 2012 and earned a scholarship two years ago, created a lifetime memory on senior day in what will be his only start at Memorial Stadium. He said he was motivated by the opportunity to redeem himself for his five-turnover performance in his previous start, a 55-45 loss at Purdue last year.I put a lot of pressure on myself, he said. You want to come out and play well and get a win and not lose to teams like Purdue. That was a tough one last year. For sure I came out playing hard.Terrell Newby ran for a career-high three touchdowns and Nebraska limited the Terrapins to 207 yards, including 11 rushing. Maryland (5-6, 2-6) lost for the sixth time in seven games and has been outscored 149-13 over three weeks.Fyfe prevailed over Max Bortenschlager in a battle of backup quarterbacks.Armstrong injured his hamstring against Minnesota and was not in uniform Saturday. Perry Hills was dressed but didnt play for the Terrapins because of shoulder problems.Fyfe was effective if not always pretty. He was 24 of 37, often dropping back deep and angling toward the sideline before throwing downfield, sometimes sidearm, sometimes off his back foot. He also hurt the Terps with a couple runs.Ive always had a special spot for Ryker, Nebraska coach Mike Riley said. Hes a guy who could have gone to a smaller school and thrown for 3,000 yards one year. He stuck it out here with teammates and friends and won a big game for us to get our ninth win.Bortenschlager, a freshman who entered the game having thrown four passes in one previous appearance, was 14 of 29 for 191 yards. He was sacked five times.Throughout the year, weve been able to run the ball in just about every game, Terps coach DJ Durkin said. We werent able to do that today. That affected Max as well. If you cannt run the ball, thats hard on any quarterback. Nike Air Max 90 Para Mujer. Maryland ended an 11-quarter stretch with no touchdowns when D.J. Moore caught a screen pass and took it 92 yards to the end zone early in the fourth quarter.I would say thats one of the best touchdowns Ive had, Moore said.THE TAKEAWAYMaryland: The Terrapins missed Hills but werent likely to win this game even if he played. The week off might help him get ready for a winnable home game against Rutgers.Nebraska: Fyfe was good in the first half and OK in the second against an overmatched opponent. The Huskers definitely want Armstrong ready for Iowa next week.POLL IMPLICATIONSNebraska could move up in the Top 25 depending on what teams ahead of it do, but a win over the scuffling Terps doesnt merit a promotion on its own.KEY NUMBERSMaryland was the first Nebraska opponent held scoreless in the first half. The Terps have been outscored 101-3 in the first halves over three games. ... Jordan Westerkamp had a season-high eight catches for 85 yards and has caught at least one pass in 35 straight games. ... Newby, playing his 50th consecutive game, ran 22 times for 98 yards and scored from 8, 5 and 1 yard. ... The Huskers have gone two straight games without a turnover for the first time since 2003.SPECIAL SENIOR DAYNebraska honored Sam Foltz during its senior day ceremony. Each senior greeted and hugged Foltzs parents before placing a red rose on the 27-yard line. No. 27 was Foltzs uniform number.Foltz, who would have been the Huskers senior punter , and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler were killed in a single-car accident in Wisconsin in July. Both were in Wisconsin to work at a kicking camp.We miss Sam like crazy and we love him so much, and hes still out there with us, Westerkamp said.UP NEXTMaryland: The Terrapins will try to break their four-game losing streak and achieve bowl eligibility when they host the Scarlet Knights on Saturday.Nebraska: The Huskers visit Iowa on Friday hoping to avenge last years loss to the Hawkeyes in Lincoln.---More AP college football: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
