|The New York Giants have agreed to a contract with veteran running back Jonathan Stewart Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey , who was released by the Carolina Panthers after 10 seasons.
The Giants announced the deal on Tuesday night. Terms were not disclosed.
The 30-year-old Stewart is Carolina’s all-time leading rusher with 7,318 yards, and his 51 rushing touchdowns rank second in team history.
He immediately becomes the most accomplished running back on New York’s roster. Orleans Darkwa, who led the Giants in rushing last season, is a free agent. Wayne Gallman and Paul Perkins are also on the roster.
”I am very pleased that we were able to make Jonathan a New York Football Giant,” general manager Dave Gettleman, who previously had the same job with Carolina, said in a statement. ”He is a quality runner with power and speed and brings a veteran Mitchell Trubisky Jersey , professional presence to our locker room. He’s a terrific addition for us at this time.”
Stewart was the 13th overall selection in the 2008 draft. His best season was in 2009, when he rushed for 1,133 yards and 10 touchdowns.
WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Nobody needs to tell Winnipeg Jets fans what happened the last time their team had a 3-1 lead in a playoff series.
After Dave Ellett scored in double overtime in Game 4 of their first-round matchup against the Edmonton Oilers in 1990, Jets 1.0 went on to lose three consecutive games, continuing their decade-long heartbreak against their hated rival.
The other time the Jets were up 3-1 in the postseason, against the Vancouver Canucks in 1992, they promptly went on a three-game losing streak Chris Jones Jersey , too.
In fact, you have to go back to Winnipeg’s days in the World Hockey Association to find a killer instinct.
During the 1978-79 season, the Jets, led by super Swedes Kent Nilsson and Lars-Erik Sjoberg as well as Terry Ruskowski, took a 3-1 lead against 18-year-old Wayne Gretzky and the Oilers. They lost Game 5 on the road but locked up their third AVCO Cup championship in four years in Game 6 with a 7-3 victory.
If the Jets are to exorcise some demons Friday night against the Minnesota Wild at Bell MTS Place, they’re going to have to do it without defenseman Josh Morrissey, who was suspended one game for a vicious cross-check to the face of Wild forward Eric Staal during the Jets’ 2-0 victory Tuesday night.
When you factor in the absence of Toby Enstrom, who has been out for several weeks with a bad ankle; Dmitri Kulikov Robert Newhouse Jersey , who had back surgery in March; and Tyler Myers, who was hurt in Game 3, three of the Jets’ top four rearguards are expected to be out for this all-important game.
“It doesn’t really cross my mind,” Bryan Little told The Winnipeg Sun after practice Thursday. “It’s going to take a lot more for us to get nervous about that.”
Staal told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he wasn’t spending any time worrying that Morrissey didn’t receive a longer suspension.
“It doesn’t matter,” he said after Thursday’s practice at Xcel Energy Center. “Regardless of what (the NHL) decided, it wouldn’t have made a difference. I’m worried about trying to help our team win the game up there and take (the series) home. That’s all I’m focused on.”
The Jets recalled defenseman Sami Niku from the Manitoba Moose, mere hours after dipping into their farm club for fellow D-man Tucker Poolman. The young Finn made his NHL debut two weeks ago, scoring his first goal against the Montreal Canadiens.
The Wild will continue to be without two of their best players Eric Ebron Jersey , too — defenseman Ryan Suter, who broke an ankle April 2, and forward Zach Parise, who is out long term with a broken sternum.
Ryan Murphy will step in on the Wild blue line for Carson Soucy and play his first NHL postseason game. He told the Star Tribune that he sees a pattern.
“I actually made my NHL debut against the Winnipeg Jets, too, and my Minnesota debut against the Jets,” he said. “So it’s Winnipeg all the time.”
