Andy Murray claimed his seventh straight win as he dispatched US Open champion Marin Cilic 6-1, 6-4 in the China Open quarter-finals Friday.

Murray will face world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in Saturday’s semifinals. It will be the pair’s 22nd meeting, and Djokovic leads by 13 winnings. The Serb has won both their contests this season, in four sets in the US Open quarter-finals and in straight sets in the Miami quarter-finals.

“It’s always difficult against Novak,” said Murray. “His form here, he’s never lost, which is very impressive.

“I’m aware it’s going to be an extremely difficult match tomorrow. But it will be very good for me to get that match and see if I can make some improvements from the US Open.

“If I play like I did at the US Open, I’ll definitely give myself an opportunity in the match. It’s going to be a good test and I look forward to it.”

Djokovic beat Grigor Dimitrov with a 6-2, 6-4 victory in the very same day as he improved to a 22-0 mark at the China Open.

“Every time I play Andy, it’s a huge challenge. It’s a very physical match. A lot of long rallies, exchanges. I do not expect anything less than that tomorrow,” said Djokovic.

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the fourth, fifth, and sixth letters of the name and the day of birth.

[Since his first name only has five letters and he has no middle name, the first name is repeated].

1 (a is the 1st letter of the first name) + 11 (k is the 11th letter of the alphabet) + 14 (N is the 14th letter of the alphabet) + 22 (born on the 22nd of the month) = 48

So the numbers 22 (born on the 22nd of the month), 26 (sum of the fourth, fifth and sixth letters of the name), and 48 (22+26=48) rule his ages twenty-seven to fifty-four.

A train derailed and some of its cars exploded, fuelling an oil fire in Quebec's eastern townships

July 6, 2013           6:19 AM ET

A train carrying crude oil derailed overnight in the heart of Lac-Mégantic in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, sparking a major fire that led to the evacuation of 1,000 people from their homes.

Witnesses reported between four and six explosions overnight in the town of about 6,000 people. The derailment happened at about 1 a.m. ET, about 250 kilometres east of Montreal.

It is not yet known if there are any casualties, but according to Radio-Canada 60 people have been reported missing.

‘Total mayhem’

Zeph Kee, who lives about 30 minutes outside of Lac-Mégantic, said he saw a huge fireball coming from the city’s downtown early Saturday morning.

He described one of the local bars, where people were enjoying their drinks on the outside patio at the time of the explosion. That bar is now gone, Kee said.

Kee said several buildings and homes were flattened by the blast.

“It was total mayhem … people not finding their kids,” he said.

Isabelle Aller, who was visiting the area, says she has been calling her friends ever since the explosion, and they haven’t answered their phones.

“The more time that passes, the more we are worried,” she said.

Aller says after the first explosion, some people went to the scene to see what was going on.

Several explosions followed afterwards.

Mayor holds back tears

The teary-eyed mayor of Lac-Mégantic, Colette Roy-Laroche, said emergency services are doing everything possible to deal with the crisis.

“We have deployed all resources to ensure that we can support our citizens,” she said.

‘It’s terrible. We’ve never seen anything like it.’—Claude Bédard, Lac-Mégantic resident

A spokesperson for Quebec’s Environment Ministry says 73 rail cars filled with crude oil were involved. At least four of the cars exploded, sending a huge cloud of thick, black smoke into the air.

The fire, which can be seen for several kilometres, has spread to a number of homes. Authorities say some 30 buildings were affected.

“It’s dreadful,” said Lac-Mégantic resident Claude Bédard. “It’s terrible. We’ve never seen anything like it. The Metro store, Dollarama, everything that was there is gone.”

Firefighters called in from U.S.

More than 100 firefighters, some as far away as Sherbrooke, Que., and the United States, were on the scene early Saturday morning to bring the flames under control.

A large but as-yet undetermined amount of fuel is also reported to have spilled into the Chaudière River. Some residents say the water has turned an orange colour.

lac mégantic, quebecThe derailed train belongs to Montreal Maine & Atlantic, which owns more than 800 kilometres of track serving Maine, Vermont, Quebec and New Brunswick, according to the company’s website.

The cause of the derailment is under investigation. A spokesperson for Quebec provincial police said it is still too early to say what caused it.

Experts from Environment Quebec are working to determine whether the smoke poses any danger to people.

All the votes have been cast for the 2013 All-Star Game’s starting spots, and the baseball world now awaits Saturday evening’s announcement of the final tallies.

The All-Stars will be unveiled at 6:30 p.m. ET on Saturday on the 2013 MLB All-Star Game Selection Show presented by Taco Bell, televised nationally on FOX.

Voting concluded at 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday for the eight position players in each league, as well as the American League’s designated hitter. The winners will represent the two leagues in the All-Star Game at Citi Field on Tuesday, July 16.

As of the most recent voting updates announced earlier this week, Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was the National League’s leading vote-getter with 5,093,645. Meanwhile, Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera led all of Major League Baseball with 5,844,165 votes.

The tightest races in each league appear to be for the final outfield spot. In an AL East showdown, Toronto’s Jose Bautista led Baltimore’s Nick Markakis by fewer than 150,000 votes, with Mike Trout and Adam Jones leading the pack among AL outfielders.

The race for the NL’s final two starting outfield spots was even tighter, as Carlos Gonzalez, Justin Upton and Bryce Harper were separated by a total of 26,213 votes. As of Monday, Harper was the odd man out.

The wait for the news of the NL’s starting second base spot is also sure to be tense, as the Reds’ Brandon Phillips hopes to hold off late charges from the Cardinals’ Matt Carpenter and the Giants’ Marco Scutaro.

July 1, 2013            6:47 p.m.

The so-called hotshots were remembered as a rambunctious but respectful bunch: pranksters, sometimes, but dedicated and energetic professionals.

Their boss, Prescott Fire Chief Dan Fraijo, grew apprehensive Sunday as another official told him Prescott’s elite Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew had dug in to escape the wind-driven Yarnell Hill wildfire.

“All he said was, ‘We might have bad news. The entire hotshot crew deployed their shelters,’ ” Fraijo recalled Monday.

The worst was soon confirmed: All but one member of the 20-man crew died after being overrun by the fire, which destroyed 200 buildings in the small town of Yarnell and exceeded 8,000 acres by Monday.

The tragedy reverberated through Prescott and beyond, as portraits of the lost Prescott crew took shape and the town took its first steps toward mourning the dead.

About half a dozen people gathered on the steps of the county courthouse in downtown Prescott on Monday afternoon to pray for the fallen firefighters, for those left injured and homeless by the blaze and for those still fighting the conflagration.

They also prayed for rain.

“What we’d love to see for our firefighters and the town of Yarnell is more rain and lots of it — and preferably less wind,” said the Rev. Scott Mitchell of The Church Next Door. As the people bowed their heads and consulted their Bibles, fire trucks sped by, “Flagstaff Hot Shots” emblazoned on several vehicles.

“That’s the road to Yarnell,” said the Rev. Dave Barreras, 46, leader of the Yavapai Territorial Gospel Rescue Mission.

But Prescott had no more firefighters to send. Its only wildland team was gone.

The hotshot crew victims were all men, most in their 20s.

“It’s a younger man’s game. These people keep themselves in exceptional condition,” said Fraijo, who added, “I never heard them complain…. They always showed a great deal of respect. They always seemed to be playing pranks on each other, and a few on me.”

The deceased were Andrew Ashcraft, 29; Robert Caldwell, 23; Travis Carder, 31; Dustin Deford, 24; Christopher MacKenzie, 30; Eric Marsh, 43; Grant McKee, 21; Sean Misner, 26; Scott Norris, 28; Wade Parker, 22; John Percin, 24; Anthony Rose, 23; Jesse Steed, 36; Joe Thurston, 32; Travis Turbyfill, 27; William Warneke, 25; Clayton Whitted, 28; Kevin Woyjeck, 21; and Garret Zuppiger, 27.

At least three hailed from Southern California: Woyjeck from Seal Beach and Warneke and MacKenzie from Hemet.

The identity of the crew member who survived has not been released.

“He’s well; he had been assigned to do a function and he wasn’t with them when they had deployed to shelter,” Fraijo said. “He feels terribly, and we all feel terribly, and we have very few words that express that sort of sorry. When you take a person in your arms and hug ’em, you know, you don’t have to say too much.”

Dennis Godfrey, a spokesman with the federal Bureau of Land Management, said officials had expected that 400 firefighters would be on duty Monday, but only 280 were on the lines by afternoon.

Godfrey said officials were hoping for more but didn’t know when, or whether, they would arrive. “There are fires elsewhere,” Godfrey said. “We only have so many resources to deal with.”

Thunderheads built over Prescott on Monday, delivering thunder, lightning and heavy rain by midday. But by 3:30 p.m., none of the rain had hit the fire area.

The blaze was sparked by a lightning strike Friday, officials said.

In a sprawling gymnasium on a college campus in Prescott, cots were set up and meals were being served for those who fled the raging wildfire. Between 40 and 50 people had registered at the facility, organized by the Red Cross, and more were expected by nightfall, said Michele Maki of the Red Cross.

Shelters had also been organized in Wickenburg and Kingman.

“It’s been a very busy day for the Red Cross,” Maki said. The shelters are meant to serve not only as a place to eat or rest, she said, but also as a place to seek emotional and spiritual help from counselors and chaplains.

“For these people, it’s very personal,” Maki said.

Kathy Bryan of Williamson Valley said the members of the fire crew who perished helped save her home from the Doce blaze after it flared up June 18 in the Granite Mountain Wilderness, northwest of Prescott. That’s roughly 20 miles north of the Yarnell Hill fire.

“These hotshots were on our properties, saving them … saving my house,” Bryan said. “It’s heartbreaking.”

Bryan and her dogs fled her home before the blaze approached. Soon Bryan’s cousin called, letting her know that the wife of one of the hotshots fighting the blaze had offered Bryan a place to stay. That woman is now a widow, Bryan said.

Now Bryan believes it’s her turn to help. “I need to find out what she needs,” Bryan said she told her cousin. “What can I do for her?”

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, U.S. Army Sgt. T.J. Ashcraft said one of the dead firefighters was his younger brother Andrew, who was a good man and a good father to his four children.

“We always kind of pushed each other in good ways,” said Ashcraft, 32. “He went the firefighter route and I went the military route.”

Another dead firefighter, Anthony Rose, was expecting his first child with his fiancee, according to family friend Phyllis Barney of Glendale, Ariz.

Barney’s family met Rose in the small Arizona town of Crown King, southeast of Prescott, when Rose moved there at age 16. In Crown King, Rose earned his GED online and went to work for the local fire department.

“Just getting notifications that an entire crew is killed … is a little difficult to handle when they’re your own and whatnot,” Barney said. “But when you’ve got one that really was kind of your own … it’s even tougher.”

The firefighters’ bodies were taken to the Maricopa County medical examiner’s office in Phoenix on Monday, and it was not clear when they would be returned to Prescott. Officials were still deciding when to hold a formal memorial service.

Some of the cirumstances of the crew’s plight came into slightly sharper focus Monday, although officials cautioned that it could be a couple of days before more preliminary information was available while investigators picked through the disaster area.

Before the flames overtook the firefighters, a thunderstorm cell had moved into their location west of state Highway 89 between Yarnell and Peeples Valley, fire officials said.

The storm created strong and erratic winds in an area described as extremely rocky, with rough terrain and deep canyons. The gusts pushed the flames toward the hotshots, who were trying to create a firebreak in hopes of stopping the flames’ advance, said Wade Ward, a spokesman for the Prescott Fire Department.

As the winds shifted and fire approached, the men were probably trying to get to safety — usually a clearing, Ward said.

“It had to be a perfect storm” for them to have deployed their fire shelters — a last-ditch effort made in desperate situations, he said. Officials lost contact with the crew about 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

“Obviously wherever they deployed their shelters, they were too close to heavy fuels, so they got overrun,” said Art Morrison, a fire spokesman with the Arizona State Forestry Division.

Ward knew the men, calling them “brothers.” He described the elite team  as “very cautious” and “very conservative.”

Wade Parker, 22, of Chino Valley, about 30 miles north of Prescott, was another of the victims.

Parker’s 14-year-old cousin, Hailey McMains, viewed him as a big brother. “After church, we would find a place to sit and talk about life,” Hailey said. Wade would ask her: “’Anything we need to pray for, Hailey?’ If I was having a bad week, we’d pray about that.”

Hailey said Wade and his high school sweetheart planned to marry in October. They had been together six years, she said.

She was at the home of an aunt and uncle Sunday evening when she heard on the news that some firefighters had died. “I asked my aunt, ‘Is Wade OK?’” Hailey said.

Her aunt put her fingers to her lips and said: “Sssssshhhhhhh,” pointing to one of Wade’s young nephews.

“A little while later, as I was leaving, she whispered, ‘Wade didn’t make it, Hailey,’ ” the girl recalled. “I cried all night long.”

Hotshot facts:

• Hotshot crews were first used in Southern California after World War II.

• The name “hotshot” comes from the hottest part of the fire, the place where these crews are usually work.

• Crews can be sent across the country, often hiking or taking a helicopter into rugged terrain.

• Crews are required to remain on call during fire season, which can last up around six months.

• Because of their demanding jobs, hotshots are required to maintain a high fitness level.

• Interagency Hotshot Crews (IHC), the umbrella organization for hotshot crews, was created in the early 1980s.

“Fire everywhere!”

Phillip “Mando” Maldonado, a squad leader, shouts instructions as a dozen hotshots, firefighters trained to combat wildfires in extreme conditions, face a nightmare scenario: flames rushing in from all sides and their survival hinging on successfully unfolding and wrapping themselves in thin sheets of heat-reflecting material.

“Get down! Heads toward center!” Maldonado yells, the urgency in his voice rising.

Diving to the ground, crew members attempt to form a tight circle and point their feet toward the approaching flames. That will deflect heat and help protect their torsos. They clamp down on the edges of their emergency shelters to make sure fire, smoke and heat can’t get inside, and they keep their faces near the ground to breathe cooler air that won’t damage their lungs.

There’s nothing to do now but wait.

Walking among the shelters several minutes later, Maldonado and another squad leader, Clayton Whitted, see that first-year hotshot Shane Arollado has made a fatal mistake: His head pointed toward the approaching fire.

Suddenly the survivors ask playfully if Arollado’s girlfriend is now available.

“Like hell!” Arollado shouts.

Members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, one of 112 Interagency Hotshot Crews around the country, have never had to use shelters during a wildfire. But working in remote locations to get ahead of the most dangerous sections of fires makes knowing how to do so a matter of life and death.

Training is crucial, especially for the four rookies on the 22-member squad.

“If we’re not actually doing it, we’re thinking and planning about it,” said Eric Marsh, superintendent of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.

“When we get out there, it’s a completely different ballgame,” said Daniel McCarty, another squad leader. “It’s the real deal. We have to look out for each other.”

The crew, one of 13 hotshot teams in Arizona, has eight full-time members. The rest work from April until September.

Brady Higgs, in his second year with the crew, said the camaraderie and opportunity to travel drew him to this job.

“I couldn’t work inside, I don’t think,” Higgs said. “I enjoy the work, I enjoy getting to go outside and see the country.”

Being on a hotshot crew means one is on call throughout fire season, staying close enough to head out on short notice.

Fire duty can mean staying in the forest rather than returning to base camp for the night. Members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots sometimes have to spend up to two straight weeks in the wilderness, getting supplies by helicopter.

“These guys kinda become my family,” said Maldonado, the squad leader. “I saw them more than I saw my girlfriend last year.”

Last year, the Granite Mountain Hotshots fought some of the biggest fires in Arizona — Wallow, Horseshoe Two and Monument – as well as blazes in states such as Colorado, New Mexico and Minnesota.

Having to operate in the wilderness with little support, training is a way of life. On a recent weekday, preparing for fire season, members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots practiced setting up fire shelters as well as cutting fire lines.

The day included watching a video on how to use emergency shelters and what conditions crew members might face if overrun by fire.

The video featured survivors of the 1990 Dude Fire near Payson, in which six firefighters died despite wrapping themselves in shelters.

For training, crew members used green tarps shaped and packaged like fire shelters. Once the hotshots got inside, other crew members yanked on the tarps to simulate the high winds they could face.

After running the exercise once, they did it again.

When Arollado “died” during both run-throughs – it was his first time using a shelter – squad leaders Maldonado and Whitted pulled him aside to give tips.

“They were really great at showing me where I went wrong,” Arollado said. “There’s always someone trying to point you in the right direction.”

The crew also dug 1,000 feet of 3-foot-wide fire line, with some hotshots wielding chainsaws to cut down down trees and bushes.

Marsh, the crew’s superintendent, said later that everyone was rusty with training just under way. It’s particularly difficult for rookies who only have classroom experience, he said.

“It’s not uncommon to have a rookie die,” Marsh said. “Fake die, of course.”

But better to have mistakes happen here, where training can correct them, than in a real fire.

“In any other job you don’t have to worry about your life day in and day out,” said McCarty, the squad leader. “But in this job you have to watch your buddy too.”

June 30, 2013             10:48 PM CT

Brazil beat Spain 3-0 to win its third straight Confederations Cup, closing a tournament that will be remembered as much for events off the field as Neymar’s emergence as potential match-winner at next year’s World Cup.

Fred scored at the start of each half in yesterday’s final, either side of Neymar’s fourth goal of the soccer competition, as Brazil ended Spain’s world record 29-game unbeaten run in competitive matches. Outside Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana Stadium, police and demonstrators clashed as the tournament continued to provide a backdrop for Brazil’s biggest protests in two decades.

“It’s a bit difficult to talk about the fights taking place,” the 21-year-old Neymar, who was named as the player of the tournament, told reporters last night. “This is something bad, many people can get hurt and injured. The celebrations were for the people inside the stadium.”

President Dilma Rousseff was jeered at the opening game on June 15 and since then Brazilians have taken to the streets in record numbers to protest poor public services and political corruption in a movement that started as a revolt against bus fare prices. Some of the protesters have complained about the 30 billion reais ($13.4 billion) the country is spending on hosting the 2014 World Cup, and related projects.

Armed police on horseback and motorcycles along with more than a dozen truckloads of soldiers were present yesterday as Brazilian authorities sought to ensure there was no threat to the final. Tear gas and rubber bullets had been used against protesters in all six venues for the Confederations Cup, an eight-team test event for the global championship.

‘Demonstrations Cup’

The 11,000-person security detail for yesterday’s game, which included military police and the armed forces, couldn’t prevent two demonstrators from emerging from soccer ball-shaped umbrellas to unfurl a banner demanding the privatization of the Maracana be scrapped. Outside the 78,838-seat stadium, police dispersed about 1,000 demonstrators using tear gas, the odor of which wafted through the stadium early in the first half.

Rousseff, whose approval rating fell 27 percent to 30 percent since the protests began three weeks ago, skipped the game, leaving sports minister Aldo Rebelo to represent the government at the presentation ceremony. Protesters have dubbed the competition the “Demonstrations Cup.”

While the Brazilian leader’s popularity has tanked, the national soccer team’s stocks have risen. The record five-time world champion entered the event with a ranking of 22, its lowest since governing body FIFA started grading national teams in 1992.

‘Emphatic Result’

Led by Neymar, who completed a $75 million move to Barcelona in May, Brazil’s win over world and European Spain capped a run of five straight victories at the tournament. It also extended the team’s unbeaten home record in competitive games stretching back to 1975.

“Nobody expected such an emphatic result, not against the world champions,” Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said in a news conference. “This is more than a title because we’ve shown that we’re on the right path and that we can now take a little more confidence with us as we travel down it.”

Buoyed by an ear-piercing rendition of the Brazilian national anthem, the home team was ahead within two minutes. Fred prodded past Iker Casillas while lying on his back after Spain failed to clear when Neymar sent the ball into the box.

“The Champion is Back,” chanted the crowd as play resumed.

Neymar and Fred, assisted by Oscar, continually stretched their opponents. The home team was incensed when referee Bjorn Kuipers showed Alvaro Arbeloa only a yellow card when Neymar looked like going clear on goal after 15 minutes. That followed a miss from Oscar after Fred’s flick gave him a shot at goal, while Fred was denied by Casillas’s block with his left foot.

Luiz’s Intervention

Spain nearly tied it five minutes before half time, when David Luiz slid to clear Pedro Rodriguez’s shot as it went toward goal. Moments later, Neymar scored with a powerful shot into the roof of the net after collecting Oscar’s pass.

“The moment of our victory was when he saved that goal,” Scolari said of Luiz’s intervention.

Fred added Brazil’s third in the 47th minute with a first-time shot from the corner of the penalty area, which took his tally to a tournament-leading five goals alongside Spain’s Fernando Torres.

Sergio Ramos missed a penalty for Spain eight minutes later and the Spaniards went a man down with 22 minutes left when Gerard Pique was shown a red card for fouling his new Barcelona teammate Neymar.

Defeat Hurts

“Obviously this defeat hurts, but I think deep down that we’ve had a good Confederations Cup,” said Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque. “We have a good team, good players and a good system of playing. We are not going to change everything because of one defeat.”

Brazil’s players danced following their win, repeating their celebrations after the 2009 Confederations Cup final in South Africa. They failed to convert that triumph into a World Cup title 12 months later.

A victory on home soil in next year’s World Cup final would make Brazil the first Confederations Cup holder to win soccer’s biggest prize.

“I can’t feel any better than how I feel,” Scolari added. “The players are motivated because they receive from these supporters this drive.”

2013-06-30-nathan-mackinnon

3:58: The New Jersey Devils acquired Cory Schneider from the Vancouver Canucks for the ninth-overall pick.

3:50: The Bufffalo Sabres have picked defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen out of Finland. The Sabres will pick again later in the first round, but decided to take a defenseman as skilled Russian forward Valeri Nichushkin continues to fall on the board.

3:48: Are the troubling Sergei Bobrovsky contract negotiations in Columbus causing the snub of Russia forward Valeri Nichuskin? He’s an Evgeni Malkin-like talent, but teams are concerned that the Kontinental Hockey League might open up the vault and offer him a contract he can’t refuse.

3:45: Very logical pick for the Oilers to take Darnell Nurse. He’s the big defenseman they need to play with all of their great forwards. He’s hard to play against, and he has some offensive up-side.

3:43: The Islanders ship out Nino Niederreiter, trading him to the Wild for Cal Clutterbuck. Islanders get one of the most aggressive hitters in the game in exchange for a forward with potential to be a 30-goal guy . He played well at the World championships.

3:38: Calgary Flames GM Jay Feaster acknowledges the losses in the recent flood. “We are southern Alberta and we’ll be back even stronger,” he said. The Flames take Sean Monahan with the sixth pick.

3:33: Carolina Hurricanes take Elias Lindholm with the fifth pick.

3:27: Predators GM David Poile didn’t expect Seth Jones to drop to fourth, but he did. Poile takes him. Said earlier he considered him the top prospect in the draft. Jones’ father, former NBA player Popeye Jones, was born in Dresden, Tenn. Played ball at Murray State.

3:21: Tampa Bay takes Jonathan Drouin with the third pick. The Predators will not pass on Seth Jones at No. 4. GM David Poile loves him.

3:20: It took a little more than six minutes between the first pick and the second pick. That’s good time. That would mean a first round lasting a little more than three hours.

3:17: Teams love offense, even though premium defensemen are hard to find. Florida snubs Seth Jones to take Alexander Barkov who was a point-per-game guy in the Finnish Elite League

3:10: Colorado’s Joe Sakic wasn’t bluffing. He took a forward with a first overall pick, and as expected, it was Nathan MacKinnon from Halifax.

2:55: Commissioner Gary Bettman paid tribute to agent Don Baizley, who died this week of cancer. Baizley was one of the most respected agents in the game. Fans booed Bettman, paused to allow the Baizley tribute, and then continued to boo Bettman.

2:50: The New Jersey Devils fans had loudest boos for the New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Los Angeles Kings and Minnesota Wild during the roll of teams before the draft.

The booing of the Rangers was loudest because they are the Devils’ archrival. But the boos for rivals Pittsburgh and Philadelphia were strong. The New Jersey fans booed Los Angeles because the Kings beat the Devils in the 2012 Stanley Cup Final and they booed Minnesota because New Jersey’s Zach Parise left the Devils to sign with the Wild in 2012.

2:45 p.m.: The Pittsburgh Penguins announced that they sent forward Tyler Kennedy to the San Jose Sharks for a second-round pick (50th overall). Kennedy, 26, had spent his entire NHL career with the Penguins.

2:30 p.m.: Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said he met with free agent center Vinny Lecavalier for 30 to 40 minutes Sunday morning, but he received no indication how long Lecavalier will take to make a decision.

“I don’t know what their process is,” said Holland, who said he was sure Lecavalier had penty of teams interested.

The Calgary Flames are known to be interested, along with the Dallas Stars and Montreal Canadiens among others

Lecavalier does have a relationship with Calgary general manager Jay Feaster, who was GM in Tampa Bay when Lecavalier was helping the team win the Stanley Cup. The Flames need an offensive center, and Lecavalier, at 33, is still capable of scoring 60-plus points.

2 p.m.: This year’s draft is different because teams can only take five minutes between each pick. Players are being asked to hug a few less people when they are picked to help ensure the draft doesn’t last too long.

Noon: The first trade on what’s supposed to be a heavy day of trades was a small one. The New York Rangers acquired Minnesota Wild defenseman Justin Falk for forward Benn Ferriero and a sixth-round pick in 2014. Falk had three assists in 36 games last season.
