TODAY'S THOUGHT

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

    SAINT PAUL, MN - The University of North Dakota was selected to finish third in the 2017-18 National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) Preseason Poll, which was released by the league office on Tuesday. The poll was conducted by 30 media members covering all eight conference schools.

    The Fighting Hawks went 21-16-3 overall last season and finished fourth in the NCHC with an 11-12-1-1 conference record. UND returns 18 letterwinners from that team, including junior forward and 2017-18 NCHC Preseason All-Conference Team honoree Shane Gersich.

    Defending national champion Denver was the unanimous preseason favorite to win a second straight Julie and Spencer Penrose Memorial Cup as NCHC regular-season champion. The Pioneers placed four players on the league's preseason all-conference team and return 16 letterwinners from last year's squad that went 33-7-4.

    St. Cloud State was picked as the league's preseason runner-up, while fourth-place Minnesota Duluth and fifth-place Miami rounded out the top five.

    Omaha and Colorado College were picked seventh and eighth, respectively.

    The Fighting Hawks will make their 2017-18 debut on Sept. 30 with a home exhibition game against the University of Manitoba. The regular season opens the following weekend with a two-game, non-conference series at Alaska Anchorage.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Aaron Judge hit his AL-leading 45th home run and topped 100 RBIs, Didi Gregorius surpassed Derek Jeter for the most home runs by a Yankees shortstop and New York beat the Minnesota Twins 11-3 today for a three-game sweep.
 
     The game was briefly halted in the fifth inning when a foul ball down the third-base line off the bat of Todd Frazier struck a young girl, who was carried out of the stands and taken to a hospital. The protective netting at Yankee Stadium ends at the home plate side of each dugout, and the team said in July it is "seriously exploring" extending the netting for 2018.
 
     The Yankees, who have won 10 of 12, began the day three games behind AL East-leading Boston. They opened a seven-game advantage over the Twins for the top AL wild card with 10 games remaining.
 
     Minnesota started 1 1/2 games ahead of the Los Angeles Angels for the league's last playoff berth. The Twins have lost five of six and were outscored 18-6 in the three-game series.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford says his left knee is feeling better this week, raising the possibility he'll return from injury after only a one-game absence.
 
     Bradford said he's planning to test the knee in practice today. He took limited turns last week, because of soreness and swelling. After going through pregame warmups Sunday at Pittsburgh, Bradford was ruled out. Case Keenum took over at quarterback for the Vikings, who lost 26-9 to the Steelers.
 
     Bradford said he hurt the knee in the season opener against New Orleans, when he had a career-best 143.0 passer rating in leading the Vikings to a 29-19 victory over the Saints. Bradford has twice had his left ACL surgically repaired.

     GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The banged-up Green Bay Packers are starting practice this week with about a dozen players on the injury report. Receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, along with defensive lineman Mike Daniels were among the notable Packers who left last week's 34-23 loss to Atlanta with injuries. The Packers were already without starting offensive tackles David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga.
 
     Coach Mike McCarthy spoke about the injuries before practice today. He hopes that all his sidelined players will be able to progress through the week as the team gets ready to face the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

     MIAMI (AP) - Jake LaMotta, the former middleweight champion whose life was depicted in the film "Raging Bull," has died at the age of 95. His fiancee, Denise Baker, says LaMotta died Tuesday at a Miami-area hospital from complications of pneumonia.
 
     The Bronx Bull, as he was known in his fighting days, compiled an 83-19-4 record with 30 knockouts. LaMotta fought Sugar Ray Robinson six times, handing Robinson his first defeat. He lost the middleweight title to him in what became known as the St. Valentine's Day Massacre.
 
     In his previous fight, LaMotta saved the championship in movie-script fashion against Laurent Dauthuille. Trailing badly, LaMotta knocked out the challenger with 13 seconds left.
 
     LaMotta threw a fight against Billy Fox, which he admitted in testimony before a U.S. Senate committee. He said he was promised a shot at a title.
 
     On June 16, 1949, he became middleweight champion when Marcel Cerdan couldn't continue after the 10th round.
 
     The 1980 film "Raging Bull" was based on LaMotta's memoir. Actor Robert DeNiro won an Academy Award for it.
