TORONTO - During Canadas first practice at the world junior selection camp the players worked on blocking shots with assistant coaches firing foam pucks at them from a few feet away. Custom Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys . In a tournament like this, youre playing for a gold medal and we expect everyone here to sacrifice his body and, to me, its part of being a world-class player. You must adapt to this level and adapt to whats been asked, said head coach Benoit Groulx. Its not something were going to do once. Its something were going to do a lot during the training camp. Sure enough, the players had to do the drill again on the second day of camp. I noticed that many of them were not used to it and I expect them to get much better by the end of this camp, Groulx said. The message was received loud and clear. It kind of shows that everyone is going to have to do that, said Sam Reinhart, the second overall pick in last Junes NHL draft. Everyones going to have to buy into different roles and being in different situations. I think thats an important statement. Players struggled to stay upright while going down on one knee and directing their shin pad at the shooter. It is a technique championed by Groulx, but unfamiliar to most of the 30 guys at the camp. I dont know about technique, said London Knights forward Max Domi. I usually just kind of look at the puck and hope it hits me and its going to hurt. This technique makes a huge difference. You dont feel it. It actually hits your equipment. Im used to taking them off the ankle so this helps a lot. Many of them on their [CHL] teams are playing 20, 25 minutes a game, said Groulx, who coaches the Gatineau Olympiques in the QMJHL. They are the go-to guy on their team and sometimes they arent counted on to block shots, because theyre too important for the team and they dont want to risk that injury. But Groulx has had a constant message since camp opened on Thursday: his players will be aggressive and they will not be outworked. Everyone has to block shots whether youre a 100-point guy or a 30- or 40-point guy, said Oshawa Generals forward Michael Dal Colle, who arrived at the camp riding a 15-game point-scoring streak. Everyones got to play well on the defensive side of the puck as well. We have a lot of offensive guys here, but well have to play different roles. Canada will hold a pair of scrimmages against a team of university all-stars on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. The games are key in determining who will be among the eight players cut by the coaching staff. And Groulx said he isnt simply evaluating talent. I think attitude is key because theyre all talented, the best in our country in their age group, and I think their attitude is something were looking at closely. Its about the way they are competing: the way you forecheck, the way you back-check, if youre blocking shots and if you can adapt to your role. On Saturday morning, Groulx was barking at his players to skate hard off the ice at the end of a shift in a drill. We want to be a four-line team so were not going to have a guy playing 25 minutes, the coach said. They cannot be out there for a 1:10 or 1:20 shift. They have to be out there shorter. Go short and go hard. There are many guys that have a lot of things to prove. Kyzir White Jersey . Burkes Flames are one of several teams involved in heavy trade speculation going into next Wednesdays 3pm et deadline, with the most prominent name in play being forward Michael Cammalleri. Mike Pouncey Chargers Jersey . Pretty good hitting, too. Dan Haren pitched six innings and sparked the go-ahead rally with a single, leading Los Angeles to another win over the skidding Atlanta Braves, 4-2 on Tuesday night. http://www.chargersauthenticofficialonline.com/authentic-kyzir-white-jersey.html . According the CSNBayArea.com, the 31-year-old suffered an ACL injury in his right knee on Friday when he collided with Anaheims Emerson Etem during a pre-season game.Melbourne, Australia (SportsNetwork.com) - Maria Sharapova survived, and in more ways than one on Thursday at the Australian Open. Sharapova, the 2008 champion and this years third seed, outlasted Italys Karin Knapp 6-3, 4-6, 10-8 in a 3 1/2-hour marathon second-round match that was played in sweltering heat before the roof was closed at Rod Laver Arena. "Im really happy to get through," said Sharapova. "I really am. I worked really hard in the last few months and I wanted this match. I didnt play my best tennis. I didnt do many things well. I got through it, and sometimes thats whats important." Also getting through to the third round were Victoria Azarenka and Agnieszka Radwanska, but in much easier fashion. Azarenka, the two-time defending champion and second seed, claimed a 6-1, 6-4 triumph over Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, while the fifth-seeded Radwanska notched a 6-0, 7-5 win over Olga Govortsova. Sharapova and Knapp opened play Thursday at Laver Arena and the decision to close the roof and halt action on the outer courts because of oppressive heat was made during the match. Rules, therefore, stipulated that the match conclude before the roof could be closed. The two gutted it out through a 108-degree temperature with high humidity. Knapp had Sharapova on the ropes in the third set, holding an 8-7 lead, but the Russians experience came through down the stretch. After holding serve for 8-8, Sharapova broke Knapp to go on top before the four-time Grand Slam champ closed out the contest on her serve. It wasnt easy, however, as Sharapova gave Knapp three points with double-faults in the 18th game before finally prevailing on her fourth match point when Knapp missed on a backhand. "I was up a set and a break and I had many opportunities to finish the match faster," noted Sharapova. "So I would have loved for it to finish faster, but thats what I got and I have to deal with the circumstances. Im all right with that. Im a competitor here, and I worked hard to get through that match. I will have to work just as hard to get through the next ones." Next up for Sharapova, who was an Aussie Open runner-up in 2007 and 2012, will be 25th-seeded Alize Cornet of France after she earned a hard-fought 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 decision over Italys Camila Giorgi. Azarenka, who beat Sharapova for the 2012 title, opened the night session and played under the roof at Laver Arena. She had little trouble in a 34-minute first set, but struggled to polish off Zahlavova Strycova, needing nearly an hour to win the second set. "There was just a moment when I just felt I dropped my intensity a little bit and was watching her a little bit too much," said Azarenka about the second set. "Im glad I could just turn it around in the end and really get back into it and play the way I was playing in the first set." Azarenka will encounter Austrian Yvonne Meusburger in the round of 32. Radwanska had a similar match on Thursday, winning 25 off the 34 points played in a 24-minute first set. Virgil Green Jersey. Govortsova made the four-time Aussie Open quarterfinalist work in the second set before ultimately falling. "I started really well today," said Radwanska, who also was able to play indoors at Hisense Arena. "I think then she tried to play more aggressive in the second set and I think I did step backwards, unfortunately. Suddenly I was a break down. But just very happy that I could manage to win that second set and finish the match." Next for Radwanska will be Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, a 6-2, 6-2 winner over Luxembourgs Mandy Minella. Former world No. 1s Jelena Jankovic and Caroline Wozniacki also advanced, as did American Sloane Stephens. The eighth-seeded Jankovic thumped Japans Ayumi Morita 6-2, 6-0, while the 10th-seeded Wozniacki went the distance in a 6-0, 1-6, 6-2 triumph over American Christina McHale. Stephens, seeded 13th this year after her surprising semifinal run last year, rallied for a 3-6, 6-2, 7-5 win over Croatias Ajla Tomljanovic. Up next for Jankovic will be Japans Kurumi Nara, who took out 32nd-seeded Slovak Magdalena Rybarikova 6-4, 6-3, while Wozniacki will next play Spains Garbine Muguruza, a 6-3, 6-3 victor over Slovakias Anna Schmiedlova, and Stephens will next face Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, who advanced with a 6-4, 7-5 win over Australias Olivia Rogowska. The hot Muguruza is fresh off her first-ever WTA title in Hobart last week. Eleventh-seeded Romanian Simona Halep bounced back from a slow start against American Varvara Lepchenko to claim a 4-6, 6-0, 6-1 win, setting up a third- round matchup with Kazakhstans Zarina Diyas, who downed New Zealands Marina Erakovic by a 6-4, 6-0 margin. Carla Suarez Navarro needed a late rally to fend off Galina Voskoboeva of Kazakhstan, as the 16th-seeded Spaniard secured her place in the next round with a 7-6 (7-2), 3-6, 8-6 victory. Slovakias Dominika Cibulkova, the 20th seed, awaits Suarez Navarro in the third round after cruising to a 6-0, 6-1 win over Swiss Stefanie Voegele, and the aforementioned Meusburger dismissed 33rd-seeded Serb Bojana Jovanovski 3-6, 6-3, 6-2. The excessive heat forced play on the outer courts to be suspended for a few hours and rain also delayed play. The third round will commence Friday, including matches for five-time champion Serena Williams and two-time Aussie Open runner-up Li Na. The world No. 1 and reigning U.S. and French Open champion Williams will face 31st-seeded Slovak Daniela Hantuchova, while the fourth-seeded Li will battle 26th-seded Czech Lucie Safarova. Li lost to Azarenka in last years Melbourne finale. Also on Friday, last weeks Sydney runner-up, ninth-seeded German Angelique Kerb
