apparent stamp on Manchester



  • Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was named the NFLs Most Valuable Player for a second time in his career on Saturday night. Rodgers, who was also won the award in 2011, garnered 31 of the 50 available votes from a nationwide media panel. He beat out Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt to win the award, which is given by the Associated Press. Watt was a unanimous pick as Defensive Player of the Year after a dominant season, becoming just the seventh player ever to win the award twice after previously receiving it in 2012. Rodgers, 31, guided the Packers to a 12-4 record and an appearance in the NFC Championship game against Seattle. He completed 341-of-520 passes for 4,381 yards and 38 touchdowns with just five interceptions for a 112.2 rating. In his fourth season with the Texans, Watt was a defensive juggernaut, racking up 20 1/2 sacks for the second time in three seasons. He had 78 tackles, four forced fumbles, a safety and an interception returned for a touchdown. The 25-year-old also contributed on the offensive side of the ball, catching three touchdown passes. Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was honored as the Offensive Player of the Year after guiding his team to an NFC East title as the leagues top rusher. He ran for 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns on 392 attempts and led the NFL with 2,261 yards from scrimmage. Arizonas Bruce Arians became the first coach in NFL history to be awarded Coach of the Year honors multiple times in a three-year span with more than one team. He won the award in 2012 with Indianapolis. In his second season with the Cardinals, Arians led the team to a franchise record-tying 11 wins and a postseason berth. He joined Don Coryell as the only coaches in team history to win 10-plus games in consecutive seasons. Todd Bowles, who served as Arians defensive coordinator and is now the Jets head coach, won the first-ever Assistant Coach of the Year award. Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. seized the Offensive Rookie of the Year award with a dynamic season. The LSU product took home 42 of the 50 available votes after hauling in 91 passes for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns. The 22-year-old drew national attention after a phenomenal one-handed touchdown catch against Dallas in Week 12 and took home Play of the Year on Saturday during the NFL Honors TV show. His 606 yards in December are the most by any rookie in a single month. Defensive Rookie of the Year honors were given to a defensive tackle for the second straight season as St. Louis Aaron Donald took home the award. Donald led all rookies with nine sacks and also compiled 48 tackles with two forced fumbles over 16 games (12 starts). Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was named Comeback Player of the Year after catching 12 touchdown passes and making 82 receptions for 1,124 yards a year after tearing his ACL and MCL in 2013. Kansas City outside linebacker Justin Houston won the Deacon Jones award after leading the NFL with 22 sacks and Steelers running back LeVeon Bell was given the title of Fantasy Player of the Year.

The Knights had five weeks to kill between their second-round elimination in the Ontario Hockey League playoffs and Fridays Cup opener against the Val-dOr Foreurs. It was over seven weeks for Stolarz because of an eight-game suspension for slashing a Windsor Spitfire in a first-round game March 25. Jake Patterson finished out Londons playoff run, which lasted six more games. The OHL waived the final two games of Stolarzs suspension so he could play in the Memorial Cup. "To be honest, I just want to go out there and compete," said the 20-year-old from Jackson, N.J. "Obviously not playing, I think it was 56 days, was a little bit of a challenge, but I think over the last three and a half weeks of practice weve competed and battled and we couldnt be any more ready for this tournament." Stolarz backstopped the Knights to an OHL title in 2013 with a 13-4-1 post-season record. The Philadelphia Flyers prospect posted a goals-against average of 2.53 and a save percentage was .923. But the 19-year-old Patterson, from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., played more games for the Knights this season. Stolarz represented the U.S. at the world junior hockey championship in January and was then sidelined for 17 games with a severe leg laceration. Patterson went 22-9-0-3 in the regular season and 2-4 in the playoffs. Pattersons experience combined with Stolarzss lack of recent games made Londons goaltending situation hazy for the Memorial Cup, until Knights coach Dale Hunter confirmed he would go with Stolarz as his No.dddddddddddd 1 again. "It was a tough decision, but Stolz is the guy," Hunter said. "Both of them have been very good in practice. "Stolz has been solid for us before he got hurt, and in the playoffs. Suspension and injury put him back, but three or four weeks have honed his game up really good." Stolarz and Patterson both have previous Memorial Cup experience. Stolarz started last years tournament in Saskatoon, but the six-foot-six goalie appeared to tire after the long playoff run. Patterson finished the tournament giving up one goal in a tiebreaker win over the host Blades and stopping 32 of 34 shots in a 2-1 semifinal loss to Portland. So if Stolarz cant recover his game quickly, Patterson is waiting in the wings. "You have to prepare for anything," Patterson said. "If Stoles were to get sick during the season or if I were to get sick and he had to start last minute, Im sure both of us would be ready. Its kind of the same situation right now." Hunter recruited former NHL goaltender Jeff Hackett to work with both goaltenders in their Memorial Cup preparation. "We did a lot of game-oriented drills where wed focus on plays that happen so often, rebounds, tips from the point," Stolarz said. "Working on things like that got us really prepared for the tournament." ' ' '
