Dylan Strome is living his NHL dream playing for the Arizona Coyotes, staying in a hotel and avoiding the harsh Pennsylvania winter he endured the past three years playing for the Ontario Hockey Leagues Erie Otters. Wholesale Penguins Jerseys .He just doesnt know how long it will last.Strome was the No. 3 overall pick in 2015 and he is in hockeys version of purgatory: At 19, he is eligible to be sent back to the juniors without burning a year of his contract as long as he doesnt play 10 games.In the NFL and NBA, when youre drafted, youre in, and Major League Baseball prospects almost always start in the minors.NHL teams, however, get the chance to test-run some of their top young prospects before committing to them for a full season.No one feels bad for you, Strome said. Its not really up to me. Obviously I want to be in the NHL.In the same uncertain spot are Coyotes teammates Jakob Chychrun and Lawson Crouse and others around the league, from the New York Islanders Anthony Beauvillier and Mathew Barzal to the Calgary Flames Matthew Tkachuk. Despite making their teams opening-night roster, the players face a nerve-racking nine-game tryout -- and decision time is near for many of them.Its normal to have that kind of tryout because you never know what can happen, said Beauvillier, whose contract will count for this year if he plays his 10th game Tuesday. I dont control that. I just control what I do on the ice.The NHLs transfer agreement with the Canadian Hockey League prevents major-junior players under 20 from going to the American Hockey League for some professional seasoning. So even though Strome had 111 points, Tkachuk 107 points and the Toronto Maple Leafs Mitch Marner 116 points in juniors last season, they must remain in the NHL or go back to juniors instead of spending time in the minors.Once considered a top player in the 2016 draft class, Chychrun slipped to 16th and pondered the rule often during camp. But he has played well enough to get into seven games and give himself peace of mind.Now that Ive gotten a taste of the level here and just seen that I can play here, I think Im just trying to really just act like a pro, Chychrun said. You cant play when youre stressed. Youve just got to act like youre sticking here, and if you do that youll have a better chance of showing them why.Easier said than done for Barzal and Strome, who have been out of the lineup more than in it. Coach Jack Capuano implied that a roster crunch could prevent the Islanders from keeping Beauvillier and Barzal all season, but Arizona could let Strome and Crouse practice, learn and wait rather than making them essentially repeat a grade level they already aced.The Coyotes sent Max Domi back to juniors two years ago and watched him dominate and blossom as a result, so coach Dave Tippett understands the nine-game barrier but doesnt dwell on it.Were more in tune of making sure that were doing everything we can to make it so they can play here so the nine games doesnt matter, Tippett said. We have to give them every opportunity, whether through extra coaching, extra workouts, critiquing their play -- everything you do to try to make sure it gives them the best chance to be successful.The Philadelphia Flyers approach was to take the nine games out of the equation entirely with 19-year-old defenseman Ivan Provorov and forward Travis Konecny, telling the 2015 first-round picks before opening night that theyd be around for the entire season. General manager Ron Hextall told them pointedly, This is not a nine-game tryout, so neither had to worry about that.It definitely gives me a little confidence, it allows me to play my game and be comfortable, said Konecny, who has a goal and six assists in 10 games and is in the NHL to stay. He wasnt going to bed every night stressed out (about whether) Im going to get that phone call.That phone call came Monday for 2016 No. 9 pick Mikhail Sergachev as the Montreal Canadiens sent him back to the OHLs Windsor Spitfires after just three NHL games. Along with Provorov and Konecny, Marner and Pavel Zacha of the New Jersey Devils are up for good and Chychrun is all but assured to stick.Meanwhile, Barzal, Strome, Crouse, Tkachuk and Thomas Chabot of the Ottawa Senators must wait.You just kind of have to put in the back of your mind, Crouse said. Its going to be there, but you kind of just have to store it in a spot where youre not thinking about it day in and day out and just really go out there and show them that you deserve to be in this league.

Peter Gammons, an analyst for Major League Baseballs network and website, drew the ire of hockey fans on Sunday when he criticized the two NHL teams on Twitter for their physical game the night before. Adidas Daniel Sprong Jersey . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. http:///...-trevor-daley-jersey . Each of Houstons starters scored in double figures as the Rockets improved to 2-0 against the Spurs this season, with both victories coming on the road. They also moved within 3 1/2 games of San Antonio (22-7) for the lead the Southwest Division. Andrew Dodt faced his challenges from Adam Scott and Ashley Hall on Saturday, but he held them off to retain the lead of the Australian PGA Championship at the end of the third round.Dodt is 14-under par for the tournament, two shots ahead of Hall and the USAs fast finishing Harold Varner III, who are in a tie for second at Royal Pines.Scott faded fast to be in a tie for fourth, four shots off the pace.But Saturday afternoon was all about the other Queenslander - Dodt.He struck three bogeys and five birdies in his two-under round, but he was no less consistent than those around him as heavy winds threaten to bring with them a late afternoon storm.Playing partner Hall faced the same struggles. He was faultless on the front nine, but bogied his last two holes to also be two under for the round.Varner then began to handle the conditions best. He hit eagles on the 15th and 17th, but bogeyed the 18th for a five-under round.For a moment too, Scott threatened to launch an all-out assault.After sinking a 10-metre putt to eagle the ninth, Scott went outright second and was just one shot off the lead.Then it all went pear-shaped for the world No.7.Dodt birdied the ninth to extend his lead and Hall eagled to retake second.In rresponse Scott found the water on the 10th, the trees on the 11th, the bunker on the 12th and then the water again on the 13th. Cheap Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys. Somehow he escaped with just two bogeys from the horror run, but it was enough to blunt his charge before a late birdie helped him finish two under for the day.Hes now joined by the Australian veteran John Senden, perhaps the last of those still in contention after a consistent error-free round of four under.The same cant be said about New Zealander Ryan Foxs third round.After starting tied for third with Scott, he finished one over for the day after bogeying three of his first five holes.He remains sixth, but now seven shots off the lead.Englishman Steve Webster and Australian Sam Brazel earlier equalled the best round of the tournament with seven-under 65s.It shot them to equal sixth and 12th respectively, telling given Brazel was forced to watch the live scores of the last group on Friday evening from his hotel to see if he would made the cut at two over.Im stoked, Brazel said.I just let it go. Making the cut was nice and then freewheeled it today. ' ' '
