The Giants did not score an offensive
SUNRISE, Fla. -- Jonathan Huberdeaus $35.4 million, six-year extension was formally announced by the Florida Panthers on Wednesday, the forward becoming yet another piece of the teams young core to be locked into a long-term deal this year.So far in 2016 alone, the Panthers have committed more than $184 million in contracts to five players who are all age 25 or younger. Aleksander Barkov signed an extension in January, and Aaron Ekblad, Vincent Trocheck, Reilly Smith and now Huberdeau all got extensions done this summer.That total doesnt even count the deal Nick Bjugstad signed late in 2014, nor does it include the acquisition of All-Star defenseman Keith Yandle or the retaining of Jaromir Jagr this offseason.Panthers President Dale Tallon said Huberdeau is a highly talented and dynamic player who is another important piece of our teams young core.The Panthers won the Atlantic Division last season, reaching the playoffs for the second time since 2000. They open training camp later this month.Huberdeaus deal -- which was confirmed Tuesday by agent Allan Walsh -- gives the Panthers 10 players who are under NHL contracts for at least the next four seasons. Also on that list: Barkov, Ekblad, Trocheck, Smith, Bjugstad, Yandle, goalies Roberto Luongo and James Reimer and defenseman Jason Demers.Huberdeaus six-year deal goes into effect for the 2017-18 season and has a salary-cap hit of $5.9 million. Ekblad is under contract through 2025, Yandle through 2023 and Barkov, Trocheck and Smith all through 2022.Huberdeau was essentially the last offseason question mark, at least in terms of when a new deal was coming.The 2013 Calder Trophy winner had a career-best 20 goals and 59 points last season, the point total being third-best on the Panthers as hes flourished on a line with Barkov and Jagr.In each of his last two seasons he has posted over 50 points and has developed into a key component of our teams offense, Tallon said.Huberdeau has 58 goals and 114 assists in 272 NHL games, all with Florida.

LOUIS -- The New Orleans Saints looked like a team playing out the string. .ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013. Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. Tony Brown Super Bowl Jersey .5 million, one-year contract on Friday. Hawkins, who turns 41 in December, will compete with Rex Brothers for the closers role at spring training. Mason Crosby Super Bowl Jersey . Reassurance came from Paul Tesori, his caddie and close friend whose newborn son is in intensive care in a Florida hospital. "Paul sent me a text this morning, just told me he loved me and wanted to go out and fight as hard as I would any other day," Simpson said Sunday after doing just that. The feud between New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman threatens to overwhelm what is a critical early-season game in the NFC East.A division that the Redskins won with just a 9-7 record last season appears there for the taking for the Giants. New York is off to a 2-0 start and already owns a win over the Cowboys in Dallas. A Giants victory over Washington on Sunday (1 p.m. EDT) at MetLife Stadium would add a second division win and put the Redskins (0-2) in an awful position three weeks into the season.We look at it, Hey, its the next game, Giants quarterback Eli Manning said. Were worried about our season and what weve got to do, and its a chance for us to go 3-0, and thats all we are concerned with.Neither team wants to let Beckham-Norman drama overshadow the contest, though it figures to occur anyway.By the end of the Dec. 20, 2015, game in New York against the Carolina Panthers, Normans former team, Beckham had been whistled for three personal-foul penalties, including one after he got a 10-yard running start and smashed into Normans helmet.For his part, Norman was fined more than $26,000 and was called for two personal fouls. The Giants also maintained that Carolina players waved a bat at them before the game and hurled homosexual slurs at Beckham. Norman later denied that happened, but there was enough ugliness that day to go around.I am looking forward to playing the New York Giants, man, Norman said. A lot has been said from this week all the way up since last time we played each other, so Im sure theyre going to be ready just as much as we are. Shoot, seems Sunday cant get here fast enough.The Redskins are bordering on desperate. They were blown out by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the opener at home and were left seething after a close loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. Washingtons schedule only gets tougher in November and December, so the Redskins cant afford a slow start. Winning in New York is never an easy task, though. The Redskins have lost four in a row and seven of eight on the road againsst the Giants.ddddddddddddThe injury list is growing quickly for Washington, too. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson (knee/ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday. Left tackle Trent Williams (right knee), defensive end Chris Baker (rib/elbow/knee/toe) and rookie wide receiver Josh Doctson (left Achilles tendon) were all limited.New York is worried about starting right guard Marshall Newhouse (calf) -- who plays a position at which the team possesses limited depth -- and running back Rashad Jennings (thumb). The running game was ineffective in the Giants ugly 16-13 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. The Giants did not score an offensive touchdown.Another concern for New York? Three lost fumbles. The Giants cant afford to give Washingtons offense that many chances.Putting the ball on the ground three times is not something we want make a trend or something that we want to continue doing, Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz said. So we want to make sure that we pay attention to detail, pay attention to the little things. Ball security is definitely one of those little things that we need to clean up a little bit.The Giants defense has been solid against the run this season, but it is unclear how much Washington will employ running back Matt Jones and company this weekend.The Redskins profess to want to find a balance between the running and passing game, but they have thrown the ball 89 times and run it just 29 through two games. Some of that is because Washington fell behind early in the second half to the Steelers, but some of it is just not being able to move the ball on the ground and having so many weapons at wide receiver and tight end.Were not happy with the run-pass balance, Washington coach Jay Gruden said. Based on the numbers, were obviously not a run-first team. Id be standing up here looking like a fool if I said were a pound the rock type team right now. First two games, the proof is in the pudding, the numbers. ' ' '
