VOORHEES Winnipeg Jets Hoodies Authentic , N.J. (AP) Ryan Straschnitzki felt at home as he was wheeled into a perch overlooking the ice at the Philadelphia Flyers‘ practice facility.Below him, Flyers prospects in the same age range as the 19-year-old Straschnitzki skated in drills and in a hurry to impress, much like his days as a defenseman for the Humboldt Broncos before the bus crash that left him paralyzed from the chest down.Philadelphia general manager Ron Hextall and other members of the organization came to visit. Defenseman Sam Morin heard Straschnitzki was in the building and popped by for a chat.The hopeful Flyers paused during camp Friday and raised their sticks toward Straschnitzki for a traditional salute.Straschnitzki was right where he wanted to be – at the rink, watching the game he loves.”Just the smell of the ice coming in today brought back so many memories of your first time skating ,” Straschnitzki said.Straschnitzki met the coaching staff and some top prospects during a break in his rehabilitation from the injuries suffered in April when a bus carrying the Broncos to a playoff game collided with a semi-trailer at a rural intersection, killing 16. Straschnitzki was among 13 more injured.Straschnitzki was wheeled on a stretcher into Shriners Hospitals for Children in Philadelphia on May 31 and expected to rehab there for six to eight weeks. He has used weights almost daily to work on his arm muscles during physiotherapy sessions and has walked on a treadmill with the help of therapists. Sitting on a massage table, he’s used laser focus for the simple task of tying the laces on his sneakers.”I’ve made quite a bit of progress,” he said. ”The rehab pushed me to my limits.”Straschnitzki needs two hours in the morning just to complete routine tasks like a shower and getting dressed before he starts his exercises. He rehabs for about two hours, breaks for lunch, then has two more rehab sessions before he ends the day in exhaustion. With the same tireless work ethic he used to move up the hockey ranks Winnipeg Jets Hats Authentic , Straschnitzki said he was told he could return ahead of scheduled to his Airdrie, Alberta, home for the first time in almost eight months next weekend.His family home is undergoing a $200,000 renovation to make it handicapped accessible and the Straschnitzkis will live in a hotel for the summer until construction is completed.The Calgary Flames have talked to Straschnitzki once he’s settled about a possible job in the organization.”Hockey is my life,” he said. ”I’ve grown up talking about it, living it, playing it. I think if there’s a job opportunity down the road, I think it’s definitely option. Right now, though, I’m just focused on healing first and getting better. We’ll see what happens.”The NHL has rallied around the survivors and families of the victims. Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald offered the Straschnitzkis use of his home and car when the family was in Philadelphia. Hextall Custom Winnipeg Jets Jerseys , who stopped to compose himself at times, said the tragedy has brought out the best in hockey.”Ryan’s an inspiring young man. He’s special, he really is,” said Hextall, a former star goalie for the Flyers said. ”He’s not feeling sorry for himself.”Straschnitzki was among 10 survivors at the NHL Awards last week in Las Vegas at the invitation of the league and NHLPA. It was the first time so many Broncos had been together since the crash. They wore Humboldt jerseys and head coach Darcy Haugan, who was killed in the crash, was honored with the inaugural Willie O’Ree Community Hero Award.”They’re your brothers for life now,” Straschnitzki said. ”Just being able to see them, it’s like time froze. You’re in the room again, you’re just enjoying the moment being with them. We all heal in our own ways. Just being with them at the NHL awards was amazing.”Tom Straschnitzki said he’s tried to keep his son’s spirits high during the grueling rehabilitation process.”When he’s down www.officialknightsproshop.com , we just try to push him back up and keep him on the straight and narrow,” he said.Straschnitzki dreams of hitting the ice again, this time playing sledge hockey – basically hockey on sleds for players with physical disabilities.”It’s my life, so I’d love to do it,” he said.Straschnitzki has never wanted to distance himself from the sport he’s played since he was a boy. But finding his way back to hockey in any capacity perhaps remains a distant goal.”I know it’s going to take time,” he said. ”I just need to be patient.”— BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Sabres had tired legs in the second game of a back-to-back set. Linus Ullmark, however, was rested and ready to go.The backup goaltender made 36 saves in his second NHL shutout and the Sabres got goals from Rasmus Dahlin and Jeff Skinner in beating the Anaheim Ducks 3-0 on Saturday night to snap a two-game skid.“Back-and-forth travels, not just back-to-backs at home or something like that Vegas Golden Knights T-Shirts Authentic , that takes a toll on your body. It’s hard,” Ullmark said. “Obviously, you’re going to be a little tired the second day. So for me it’s about being mentally sharp even more when I get in there.”Sabres announcer Rick Jeanneret was taken out of the press box on a stretcher early in the third period. It was unclear what happened to the 76-year-old Jeanneret, the team’s play-by-play man since 1971 — marking the longest tenure with a single team in NHL history.Buffalo did not provide an immediate update on his condition following the game, but one was expected. WGR radio, the Sabres’ flagship station, reported Jeanneret was responsive before getting onto the stretcher.Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart each had two assists and Connor Sheary added an empty-net goal.“I’m just happy we ended on a win going into the break,” Sabres coach Phil Housley said. “The guys should be able to relax and regain some energy.”The Ducks finished a five-game road trip with their third consecutive loss following a 9-0-1 stretch. John Gibson stopped 21 shots.“Playing on the road for 10 days here, it’s been tiresome at times,” coach Randy Carlyle said. “We had developed a blue-collar type of attitude and we were more of that hockey club tonight than in our last game.”Skinner scored his 26th of the season to make it 2-0 with 8:35 remaining. Skinner maneuvered around Ducks defenseman Pontus Aberg to the right edge of the crease and lifted a backhand over Gibson’s glove into the far corner of the net.Buffalo took a 1-0 lead late in the first on a power-play goal from Dahlin Vegas Golden Knights Hoodies Authentic , the 18-year-old defenseman selected first overall in this year’s draft.Dahlin received a pass from Rasmus Ristolainen at the top of the right circle and launched a wrist shot over Gibson’s glove and inside the near post for his fourth of the season. The goal ended an 0-for-9 drought on the power play for the Sabres and was Dahlin’s first at home.“I’ve been waiting for it,” Dahlin said. “It was good that the first one was in a win.”Gibson stopped 15 shots in the second period to keep the Ducks within a goal. His best sequence came when he denied Skinner on a partial breakaway and then slid over to make a glove save on Eichel’s point-blank shot off the rebound.The Ducks made a push in the third period, but Ullmark made 15 saves and the Sabres killed three penalties.BEHIND THE MICROPHONEJeanneret opened the broadcast dressed in a red Santa Claus suit and a white beard. After the Sabres broadcast went silent for a stretch in the third period, color commentator Rob Ray took over calling the play by play. Later, pregame and postgame host Brian Duff finished calling the game.Jeanneret entered the Hockey Hall of Fame as the 2012 recipient of the Foster Hewitt Award. In 2014, he was diagnosed with throat cancer but only missed a few games during the 2014-15 season after receiving treatment. In 2016, he was fitted with a pacemaker due to a slow pulse.In recent years, Jeanneret and the Sabres reached a deal to scale back his work and have him call about half the team’s games.NOTES: Ducks D Jake Dotchin received a 10-minute misconduct and game misconduct penalties after he stood in the runway to the dressing room and yelled at the conclusion of the second period. … Reinhart extended his career-best point streak to 12 games. It’s the longest active streak in the NHL. … Eichel recorded a point in his eighth straight game. … Dahlin has 20 points this season, the 10th-most by an NHL defenseman before his 19th birthday. Housley holds the record with 57 points in the 1982-83 season. … Buffalo assigned D Brendan Guhle to Rochester after defensemen Jake McCabe and Lawrence Pilut returned from injured reserved for Thursday’s loss at Washington.UP NEXTDucks: At San Jose on Thursday.Sabres: At St. Louis on Thursday.
