The native of Creston, B.C., previously served as manager of high performance, director of mens national teams and most recently as senior director of hockey operations and mens national teams. Salmond takes over from Brad Pascall, who stepped down this month to take a position as assistant general manager of the Calgary Flames. "Hockey Canada is very fortunate to have Scott Salmond in place to take over as vice-president of hockey operations and mens national teams," Hockey Canada chief operating officer Scott Smith said in a statement. "In his role as senior director, he played a key role in supporting the vice-president in growing our high performance department and our teams through great success." Salmond originally joined Hockey Canada in 2001 after five years at BC Hockey. In his most recent role, Salmond assisted the vice-president in overseeing hockey operations for Canadas mens teams, the national junior team, under-18 and under-17 programs and the sledge team. "I would like to thank Hockey Canadas leadership group and the board of directors for entrusting me with this great opportunity and responsibility," said Salmond. "I look forward to working with everyone at Hockey Canada, our staff, branches and partners, in continuing to grow our high performance area and leading our teams to continued success on the international stage."

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Raptors have traded forward Steve Novak along with a second-round pick to the Utah Jazz in exchange for guard Diante Garrett - who will then be waived.NEW YORK, N.Y. - Derek Jeter is among the most media-savvy athletes on the planet, but he says it came through trial and error.I think you learn through experience, he told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday, three days after he finished his 20th and final season with the New York Yankees. Ive made my fair share of mistakes with the media.Jeter is hoping to help other athletes avoid those mistakes a€” and get out their own unfiltered stories a€” with the launch of The Players Tribune website. His site, which went live Wednesday, promises unique access to top athletes in every sport a€” from videos to photos to podcasts and more a€” in their own words.You want players to feel like this is a safe place where they can get their message across how they want to portray it, the former shortstop said.Jeter said he doesnt see The Players Tribune as a replacement for reporters.Were not trying to take away from sportswriters. Sportswriters are what makes sports successful, he said. I think were sort of working in conjunction with them.The 40-year-old said todays athletes are familiar with a variety of platforms to get across their message.This generation has fun sharing things, he said.But he said his website will fill a void in the communication process, noting it will let players go into more detail than the 140-character limit on Twitterr. Denis Suarez Jersey. (He isnt on Twitter and acknowledged hes not too familiar with it.)How many times do you see someone put something out, and then next thing you know, theyre saying it came across the wrong way, it was out of context, its not what I meant, he said.He also noted that sports media doesnt always have time to cover all athletes and tell their storiesThe former All-Star won five championships during a storied career. In his first post on the site, he spoke about the whirlwind of his final season and his disappointment in missing the post-season.When asked if he watched the Kansas City Royals thrilling extra-innings win over the Oakland Athletics in the American League Wild Card game on Tuesday night, he said no.Even though it was Jeters decision to call it a career, the desire to be out there remains: He likened watching the post-season to being a kid who isnt allowed to play with his friends.But he made it clear that he wont be returning to Yankee Stadium, either as a player or as a broadcaster.Im not going to be in the booth, he said. I have a hard time criticizing people.Jeter said he plans to concentrate on the website and expand his business portfolio.I have a whole lot to learn, but its exciting, he said.___Online:http://www.theplayerstribune.com___Follow Nekesa Mumbi Moody at http://www.twitter.com/nekesamumbi NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Hoodies NFL Jerseys Outlet Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Cheap Jerseys WholesaleNike NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Gear Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys China Disocunt Football Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet ' ' '
