LAS VEGAS — Sharks coach Pete DeBoer didn’t mince words earlier this month when he was asked what his rationale was for starting Martin Jones in goal several times in a row instead of giving Aaron Dell more opportunities.After all, it was DeBoer’s hope when the season began that he could start Dell in net more consistently than he did last year.“He’s got to make it easier for us to stick him in there,” DeBoer said Nov. 12.Dell had to wait until Thursday’s game with the Vegas Golden Knights …

All of those marks were firsts by an OSU wrestler.“I am very excited to be joining the Buckeye staff next year,” Stieber said in a press release. “I love Ohio State, so it’s a dream come true that I can start my coaching career here as well as pursue my Olympic dreams.”After enjoying incredible success while in high school at Monroeville High School, where he won four state titles, Stieber came to OSU and helped the Buckeyes earn their first team title in the team’s 94-year existence in the 2014-15 season.Ryan expressed his excitement for the return of Stieber to OSU and what the return means for the team.“Logan has been a tremendous example here as a student-athlete,” Ryan said in the release. “He completed one of the most illustrious careers in both Ohio high school history and NCAA history by winning four Big Ten and NCAA championships while leading the Buckeyes to our first team title.”Ryan said Stieber’s contributions to the Buckeyes have been more than anyone else in the program’s history, and he expects him to be a great influence to the wrestlers he will coach.“I am excited for the current and future student-athletes that will have the opportunity to learn from Logan,” Ryan said.Ryan also made a note of the importance of volunteer coach Ross Thatcher had on the victory, expressing how much of a powerhouse he believes his coaching staff is.“(Thatcher) had a tremendous influence on bringing our first NCAA team title to Ohio State as well as he mentored our upper weights, especially Nick Heflin and Kyle Snyder,” Ryan said.The Scarlet and Gray wrestling facility will now boast an Olympian (Tervel Dlagnev), a World champion (sophomore Kyle Snyder) and a four-time NCAA champion (Stieber).Those accolades just so happen to make the wrestling room for the Buckeyes the only one with these kind of credentials in the NCAA.After winning a national championship last year and getting off to a 6-2 start this year, it would appear the Buckeyes are looking to build a collegiate dynasty in wrestling with the addition of Stieber, along with the experience of other coaches.After finishing second in the 165-pound class at the U.S. Senior Nationals, Stieber will be attending the U.S. Olympic Team Trials from April 8 to 10 in the hopes of joining the Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Stieber’s younger brother, Hunter, is also a member of the OSU team, but, as he is currently a redshirt senior, he will not be coached by his brother.

OSU lost 1-4. Credit: Alex Hulvalchick | For the LanternThe No. 15 Ohio State men’s hockey team (6-3-3, 1-3-0-0 in Big Ten) will travel to Ann Arbor, Michigan, after an off week to face off against No. 17 Michigan (6-4-2, 2-2-2-1 in Big Ten) in a battle between one of the nation’s best offenses and the Buckeyes’ shutdown defense.The Wolverines are tied for third in the nation in scoring offense at 3.83 goals per game, which includes putting in 11 goals in a series against then-No. 4 Minnesota. That series ended in an 5-4 overtime win and a 6-6 shootout loss for Michigan. Minnesota ranks in the top 10 in scoring defense, allowing only 2.29 goals per game.The Buckeyes match the impressive offensive numbers with a scoring defense that is also tied for third in the country, allowing only two goals per game. Head coach Steve Rohlik said the success is more about his own team performing well than preparing specifically for the opponent.“It’s about our detail, it’s five-man defense five-man offense and that’s what we’ve been stressing all year,” Rohlik said. “It’s about how we play and what we do, we know how good they are, we know what they can do, and again it’s about us going out there and executing our game plan.”Senior forward Tony Calderone is Michigan’s most powerful scorer this season, netting 10 goals on just 44 shots, good for fifth in the NCAA. Michigan’s key playmaker all year has been sophomore forward Cooper Marody, who is fourth in the nation with 20 points, and tied for second with 16 assists.“They can beat you with a lot of different guys and certainly guys like [Calderone] have been putting points up on the board, again I think it’s just about our team defense, it’s not about one guy, it’s about our five guys on the ice,” Rohlik said.Michigan changed head coaches for the first time in 33 years this offseason with the retirement of former NHL player Red Berenson. Berenson led the Wolverines to 11 NCAA Final Fours and two national championships. He was replaced by Mel Pearson, who was Berenson’s assistant coach from 1987-2011.“As a young coach being able to stand there and look down at a legendary Hall-of-Famer in Red, it’s almost like every game you walk away going ‘that’s unbelievable,’” Rohlik said. “Certainly Red’s missed … but Mel’s doing a heck of a job up there.”The Ohio State-Michigan rivalry transcends every sport, and hockey is no exception. Most games within this matchup are filled with big hits and trash talking. In a game last season, the bad blood escalated into a massive fight after an 8-6 Michigan victory last season.Michigan has won 11 of the 18 matchups against Ohio State in the past five seasons, but the Buckeyes have won five of the past eight meetings against their rivals.“We don’t like those guys and we know that they don’t like us,” junior forward Dakota Joshua said. “I think it’s really cut throat and we really take those games to another level.”Joshua is one of five Ohio State players born in Michigan, and he said there is an added intensity to perform in his home state.“Switching over sides, coming down to Ohio State was a big deal, and going back to Michigan there’s always some extra pride, extra chip on your shoulder that you want to stick it to them and prove them wrong.”This weekend series is the first of two the teams will share this season. With both teams teetering on the edge of the USCHO rankings week after week, these games may mean more than ever when when determining which teams make the NCAA tournament at the end of the year.Puck drop is set at 6:30 p.m. Friday and at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Yost Ice Arena in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Friday game will be shown live on Big Ten Network.
Former Manchester United and Villarreal forward Giuseppe Rossi has been summoned to attend a hearing by Italy’s anti-doping agency Nado ItaliaThe 31-year-old was released by Serie A side Genoa at the end of last season and remains without a club.Now to add to his woes, Nado Italia have called on Rossi to attend a hearing on October 1 after failing a drug test.Rossi reportedly tested positive for dorzolamide after a Serie A match between Genoa and Benevento on May 12.Dorzolamide is a drug that acts as an anti-glaucoma agent commonly found in eye drops.Karsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R.

Hearts manager Craig Levein has called for the introduction of video-assisted referees (VAR) in Scottish football and suggested Celtic and Rangers could pay for it.Levein has furiously criticized Scottish referees as his side has paid dearly for two wrongful decisions just in the past week.The latest was a controversial late penalty for St Johnstone in midweek, as Hearts had to settle for a point in a 2-2 draw.The Scottish Professional Football League ran an estimate for the cost of VAR, and it would cost £1m per season, and Levein believes Celtic and Rangers can pay for it as they earn money from playing in Europe this season.“I read recently that Ajax gave up their European money to take up the plastic pitches and put down grass pitches for the rest of the clubs in the league,” Levein told Sky Sports.Johnston is disappointed after being injured Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team’s victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.“Maybe the Old Firm would give up their European money to put VAR in for everybody.“Unless we find somebody. Somebody bought Hampden so maybe somebody could put the money in to bring VAR in. It would certainly help referees.“VAR for me is the answer to the problem. As it is just now you just get one shot at it. It happens in rugby and it seems to be quite popular, there are less mistakes.“I think it’s a good idea, it’s just where we are going to find the money for it.”

Spruce aphid are small, soft-bodied insects that attack coastal spruce trees by sucking out the sap and causing them to turn yellow and brown and drop from the tree. Sitka spruce in tidewater and stressed areas, such as urban areas, are particularly susceptible to this pest. Courtesy of US Forest ServiceThey feed primarily on older needles, Current year’s needles are usually not damaged, though they may be fed on during population outbreaks. According to the Cooperative Extension, there are several active ingredients that can be used on ornamental trees for the control of aphids. Common products include, but are not limited to, acephate, bifenthrin, cyfuthrin, azadirachtin, horticultural oils, and imidacloprid. Do this at several locations. If aphids are present, treatment may be warranted. Damage from feeding that occurs in the early spring is often not observed until later in the spring or summer. If trees are not treated until the damage is obvious, the effectiveness of control measures will be minimized. Spruce aphid outbreaks do not tend to last more than a few years and several natural factors contribute to spruce aphid control. The Cooperative Extension says that the European spruce aphid has been establishing itself on the western side of the Kenai Peninsula. The Cooperative Extension suggests weekly monitoring through the spring to note any new infestations and track populations. Aphids can be detected by holding a piece of sturdy, white paper under a branch and lightly tap the branch against the paper. The aphids are green and usually wingless; however, a winged generation may be produced to facilitate spread. Spruce aphid is not usually a tree-killing pest; its damage is largely aesthetic, but aphid feeding stresses trees and lowers their defenses to other pests, like spruce bark beetles. Provide supplemental water during dry spells to maintain or improve tree vigor, and prevent unnecessary injury to the trees. Scientists say that spruce aphids are most active and damaging in late winter and early spring, with populations fluctuating according to weather conditions. Concern is growing that this year’s mild winter may allow the aphids to rapidly build up large populations.

Some products may discolor needles or need to be applied repeatedly. Note that pesticides are subject to restrictions on application depending on weather and proximity to water. Be sure to follow application directions carefully near bodies of water or and be aware of warnings about impacts on fsh, other aquatic animals, or any other non-target species.
