SOCHI – Just to prove theyre not always inseparable, Anaheim Ducks Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry were about 175 feet apart as the Canadian mens Olympic hockey team wrapped up its practice on Wednesday. Perry was down in one end, working on his stickhandling, deftly displaying his soft hands as he manoeuvred a puck through a jumble of other pucks. Getzlaf was standing in front of the crease in the other end, showing off his eye-hand coordination as he deflected in shots from the point. Soon afterwards, however, the two of them walked back together to the Athletes Village and chatted about Canadas Olympic tournament opener against Norway on Thursday (Noon, ET). Getzlaf and Perry were side by side. Now thats a scene familiar to their Ducks teammates. Thats why theyre called the twins in Anaheim. "We just hit it off early in our careers," Perry said, in explaining why Getzlaf to Perry has become a common refrain for NHL play-by-play men since they busted on the scene together back in October 2005. "Weve become close off the ice and I think thats why weve been so good for each other on the ice. Hes the guy who makes plays and carries the puck. Im more of an up-and-down player who goes to the net. Someone has to go to the net." Championship combo That combination has produced a Stanley Cup championship in 2006-07, an Olympic gold in Vancouver four years ago, Rocket Richard Trophy and Hart Trophy for Perry in 2010-11, and who knows what will happen in Sochi. On the road, there arent many times Getzlaf and Perry are apart. They sit together on buses and planes, at team dinners and beside each other in the Ducks dressing room. They get along like brothers and that means they occasionally get sick of each other, too. "Thats why we go our separate ways at home and dont see much of each other," Perry said with a chuckle. "He has a family. So we know this a good time to give each other space." Getzlaf was born in Regina on May 10, 1985, and six days later Perry arrived into the world in Peterborough, Ont. Neither recalls the first time they met each other, but it was back in 2002 at the Canadian under-18 summer camp. Perry made the team, scored five times in five games and helped Canada win the old Eight Nations Cup. Getzlaf was left at home. The following spring, it was Getzlaf who played for Canada and won gold at the under-18 world championship while Perry was busy with the London Knights playoff drive. But they would meet again at the 2003 NHL entry draft in Nashville. The Ducks selected Getzlaf 19th, and then snatched Perry with the 28th overall selection. "Thats the first time I remember meeting [Perry]," Getzlaf recalled. "We met later that evening. But we didnt talk that much." Friendship takes off The talk picked up after that. They went to the Ducks training camp in 2003, the Canadian world junior summer camp in Calgary in 2004. They both made that team, but they played on different lines. Perry was with Sidney Crosby and Patrice Bergeron. Getzlaf played between Andrew Ladd and Jeff Carter. "Id say that was when we really got to know each other and the friendship started to take off," Perry said. "We were both Anaheim draft picks and we started to hang out more with each other." A few months after Getzlaf and Perry celebrated world junior gold together, Perry went on to win the Memorial Cup in London and Getzlaf would get an early start on his pro career with a 10-game stint in the AHL Calder Cup playoffs with the Ducks farm club in Cincinnati. It was at the Ducks training camp in 2005 that Getzlaf and Perry immediately were paired together and have had Frick and Frack relationship ever since. Expectations high in Sochi The expectations are high for Getzlaf and Perry in Sochi and their new linemate, Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks. The Ducks have been one of the best clubs through 60 games because of the twins play. With 29 goals and 67 points in 56 games, Getzlaf hit the Olympic break second in the Art Ross Trophy scoring race, 11 points behind Sidney Crosby. Perry is third in the league in goals scored with 30. "Were having a good season and obviously it would be nice to continue that over here," Perry said. دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.

. -- The Los Angeles Angels have agreed to a minor league contract with reliever Brandon Lyon that includes an invitation to their big league camp for spring training.NEW YORK -- New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton is expected to plead guilty to a felony in his gun possession case in exchange for a no-jail sentence, prosecutors said Monday. Felton was in court as the Manhattan district attorneys office outlined the agreement, which would resolve a gun case that arose amid the breakup of his marriage. Hes expected to admit June 30 to at least one charge, attempted criminal possession of a weapon -- he wont have to come to court to do so -- and get a $5,000 fine and 500 hours of community service. "I want to thank the DA for being fair to me in this whole situation," Felton said outside court, also thanking his family, friends and fans "for supporting me and understanding who, the person, I am." His lawyer, Jim Walden, said the plea would allow Felton to "continue his career without interruption." The DAs office had no immediate comment on the agreement. Felton was arrested in February, turning himself in shortly after a Dallas Mavericks-Knicks game at Madison Square Garden. Authorities said his estranged wifes lawyer had brought a loaded semi-automatic handgun to a police precinct, saying it was Feltons and she wanted it out of their house. His wife, law student Ariane Raymondo-Felton, had filed for divorce the week before. Her lawyer didnt immediately respond to an inquiry about Feltons planned plea. Felton was charged with offences including a weapon-possession offence that carries the potential for up to seven years in prison; it outlaws large-capacity ammunition magazines, under some circumstances. The gun in Feltons case had a magazine that could hold about 20 rounds, prosecutors said.dddddddddddd His lawyer said Felton never used the gun to threaten anyone. The NBA has said its monitoring the case. The league usually waits until criminal cases against players are resolved before deciding whether to impose any fine or suspension. The former University of North Carolina star, who turns 30 on Thursday, was the fifth pick of the 2005 NBA draft. After five seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats, he had stints with the Knicks, Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers before returning to the Knicks for the 2012-13 season. Felton averaged a career-low 9.7 points last season as the Knicks went 37-45 and missed the playoffs. The point guard missed 17 games while battling injuries, and team president Phil Jackson recently denied a report that he had told Felton he planned to try to trade him this summer. Felton is set to earn $3.8 million next season and has a player option that would pay him $4 million in 2015-16. Felton is among a few pro athletes who have gotten into trouble with New Yorks strict gun laws. Then-New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress was arrested in 2008 after accidentally shooting himself in a Manhattan nightclub. He pleaded guilty to an attempted weapon-possession charge and served about two years in prison. Fighter Robert Guerrero was arrested at John F. Kennedy Airport last year after he presented a locked gun box containing an unloaded handgun during check-in. He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was ordered to pay a $250 fine and complete 50 hours of community service. ------ AP Basketball Writer Brian Mahoney contributed to this report. ' ' '
