The San Jose Sharks won against the Pittsburgh Penguins, 3-1, last Saturday, but the victory is just one of the highlights of the game. Canadian ice hockey forward Patrick Marleau made history by achieving his 1,000th point in his career after producing two assists in the win.
The man they call "Patty" already has 1,001 points to his name and has played his entire career as a member of the Sharks. Everyone saw this coming, especially with Marleau's impressive strings of performances in the past couple of games.
The veteran professional ice hockey player began his career almost two decades ago when he was picked by the Sharks as the second overall in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. Since then, he has become the franchise's all-time leader in goals and played more than 1,300 games for them, making him part of the elite group of NHL players to have played in that number of games. more >>
The Toronto Raptors look to capitalize on their recent success in the regular season this year, but news about starting center Jonas Valanciunas' broken bone in his left hand is never a welcoming one. The injury was obtained during the Raptors' game against the Los Angeles Lakers, which they won, 102-91, to snap a three-game losing streak.
In a statement released to the media, team officials said that the injury is a fractured fourth metacarpal in the non-shooting hand. The young center will definitely be sidelined but there will be an additional series of tests to be performed in order to figure out how long will he be out.
Ironically, Valanciunas suffered the very same injury, but it was in his right hand, during his rookie season. That injury forced him to miss a total of 18 games last year. This time, though, he is expected to miss fewer than the previous injury since he decided to have it rehabilitated instead of opting for surgery. more >>
Colin Kaepernick told the team's medical staff that there is some soreness in his non-throwing shoulder on Monday, forcing team officials to have it looked and treated the rest of the week. On Saturday, though, the 49ers eventually placed him on the season-ending IR because of the same left shoulder injury, officially ruling him out for the remaining games of the season.
The question now is if the quarterback has finally seen his time in San Francisco end after only three years since taking the 49ers to the Super Bowl.
Although Blaine Gabbert started in Sunday's loss against the Seahawks, Kaepernick was actually listed as "probable" in that game, with the team hoping to have him play as backup in case he was needed. But the 28-year-old came into the team facility and told the staff that his shoulder wasn't healing and that he needed to ask about his other options. more >>
