GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) – A total of 21 North Dakota players will be featured on NHL development camp rosters following the 2022 NHL Entry Draft. 16 of those players will take the ice for the Fighting Hawks during the 2022-23 season, including incoming freshmen Jackson Blake, Dylan James, Owen McLaughlin and Ben Strinden. In addition, former UND forwards Connor Ford and Grant Mismash as well as defenseman Jake Sanderson will attend camps in Vegas, Tampa Bay and Ottawa, respectively, while signed recruits Abram Wiebe (D) and Hobie Hedquist (G) head to the Golden Knights and Minnesota camps.
MINNEAPOLIS – The Minnesota Twins had the day off on Monday. They begin a six-game homestand leading up to the All-Star break. They’ll play the first of two against the Milwaukee Brewers tonight at Target Field. The scheduled pitching match up tonight has Josh Winder for the Twins (4-2, 3.12 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, 27 strikeouts) against the Brewers Jason Alexander (2-1, 4.75 ERA, 1.72 WHIP, 17 strikeouts).
MINNEAPOLIS – The Minnesota Wild have a lot of decisions to be made this off-season. One thing that was resolved was Minnesota’s goaltending situation, after the Wild re-signed three-time Cup-winner Marc-Andre Fleury for two years at $7 million. They are set to again pair Fleury with Cam Talbot, which was a successful recipe for the final six weeks last season. “To have Marc-Andre Fleury and Cam Talbot as a 1-2 punch, I think we have one of the top tandems in the league,” GM Bill Guerin said. “Every night we’re going to put a fantastic goalie in net.”
With the Avalanche turning to a bit of an unknown quantity in 26-year-old Alexandar Georgiev and moving on from Darcy Kuemper, Minnesota hopes to have enough in net to get through a long regular season and make a deep playoff run. “I go into every season looking to make the playoffs and go from there,” Fleury said. “I don’t think it’s a good thing to look too far ahead, but definitely our goal is always to make it to the end.” To do so, the Wild will have to go through the Avalanche — or one of the other teams in the West loading up for the same reasons.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Former Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber III died of heat stroke, police said Monday. In a statement, police in the Dallas suburb of Frisco said the Collin County medical examiner had ruled Barber’s death an accident. A police spokesman provided no further elaboration on the circumstances of the 38-year-old’s death, and the medical examiner’s office did not immediately respond to a message from The Associated Press. Police making a welfare check on June 1 found Barber dead at a Frisco apartment that he was believed to have been leasing.
The former Minnesota Golden Gopher was a fourth-round draft pick by Dallas in 2005 and spent six seasons with the Cowboys. He had 24 combined touchdowns in 2006 and ’07 despite starting just one game those two seasons. Barber rushed for 654 yards and a career-high 14 TDs in 2006. Barber had a career-high 975 yards rushing and 10 TDs in 2007, when he made his only Pro Bowl. His role and production declined from there, and he had career lows in carries, yards and touchdowns in his final year in Dallas in 2010. Barber played a final season with Chicago in 2011.
