PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed restricted free agent Dustin Jeffrey to a one-year contract. The deal, worth $625,000, gives the Penguins added depth after losing veterans Brenden Morrow, Jarome Iginla and Matt Cooke in free agency. The 25-year-old Jeffrey had three goals and three assists for the Penguins during the 2013 season. Jeffrey has played in just 50 NHL games since tearing the ACL in his right knee in March, 2011. The signing leaves the Penguins with just one restricted free agent on the roster, Robert Bortuzzo. Bortuzzo is eligible for arbitration. He played in 15 games last season, with two goals and two assists. Alex Smith Jersey . -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Sam Huff Youth Jersey . Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced Wednesday that the team would assign Swedish forward Elias Lindholm to his nations team for the upcoming tournament. . The veteran safety was a starter for the Bengals from 2008-2012. He totaled 41 tackles and three interceptions while starting all but four of the 13 games he played last season. Sean Taylor Youth Jersey . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. DaRon Payne Redskins Jersey . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. If John Sadler doesnt have a good day Saturday, it wont be for a lack of trying.Sadler and his primary patron, Hronis Racing, are taking swings in three Grade 1 events on the Santa Anita Park program with varying degrees of promise, ranging from wishful thinking to historically portentous, at least in terms of what could happen next.Hard Aces, a 6-year-old son of Hard Spun, won the Cougar II Handicap at Del Mar as if he might be in for a piece of the subsequent Pacific Classic -- or at least whatever was left after California Chrome and Beholder got through with it. He was 38-1 on the tote board, so expectations were pitched accordingly, and things were going along well enough for the first five of the 10 furlongs, with Hard Aces keeping both favorites in his sights.Then came a rapid retreat, as the Sadler runner wandered under the wire at a mild gallop, far behind California Chrome. The only horse he beat, Win the Space, had been pulled up halfway down the stretch.This is hardly the way you want your horse to come into a race like the $300,000 Awesome Again Stakes, which is headed again by California Chrome.He kind of stumbled at one point and got a nasty cut on his leg, Sadler said. Thats why the jockey jumped off him right after the finish. We put a couple stitches in it, and hes been fine ever since. Hes a tough, old horse.No kidding. Hard Aces has run 34 times, won seven races, and is 10 bucks shy of becoming a millionaire. Seven of his 15 starts since joining Sadler and the Hronis stable have come in Grade 1 events, including a victory in the 2015 Gold Cup at Santa Anita and a second in the 2016 Santa Anita Handicap.What Im trying to do is get him to the Marathon, Sadler said, referring to the $200,000 Marathon Stakes on the Nov. 4 Breeders Cup undercard. So, Im using a Grade 1 race at a mile and one-eighth to prep him for a Grade 2 at a mile and three-quarters, which I guess is a little unusual.Half an hour after the Awesome Again, Sadler and the Hronis brothers -- Kosta and Pete -- will be in the mix for the $300,000 Rodeo Drive Stakes at 1-1/4 miles on firm turf. With 14 entered, no one scared anyone away.Weve entered two, but I might scratch Nancy From Nairobi and maybe find someplace to run her back East, Sadler said.Elektrum is the barns other shooter, fresh off a close third in the John C. Mabee Stakes at Del Mar. She was second in the 2015 Rodeo Drive.Shes finally getting the distance she likes, Sadler said. When Santa Anita elimminated the mile-and-a-quarter Santa Barbara, that left only shorter races, and shes a mare who can handle the distance.ddddddddddddElektrum comes by it honestly. Her sire, High Chaparral, was a two-time winner of the Breeders Cup Turf -- including his dead heat with Johar at Santa Anita in 2003 -- and her maternal grandsire is Inchinoor, the sire of San Juan Capistrano winner On the Acorn.Sadler will take what he can get in the Awesome Again and the Rodeo Drive. Its the $300,000 Zenyatta he can taste, and he has the champion Stellar Wind wound up and ready to fire again against Beholder.When last seen in the afternoon, Stellar Wind was beating Beholder on the square in the Clement L. Hirsch Stakes at Del Mar. The shock was real. At 1-10 odds, Beholder seemed like a mortal lock. Mortal, yes. Lock, no. Stellar Wind laid on her older rival from the start and dug in hard at the end to win by half a length.She was tired after that, but she had a right to be, Sadler said not long after the race.Like every other trainer with a decent mare based out West, Sadler has been living in Beholders world for years.You cant let Beholder just cruise around and save energy, Sadler said. I know that wont work, so I would imagine this race will look fairly similar to the one at Del Mar.There is a lot riding on the Zenyatta. Stellar Wind will try to prove the Hirsch was no fluke, while Beholder needs to shake loose from the only two-race losing streak of her 24-race career, after the Hirsch and her second to California Chrome in the Pacific Classic. The Zenyatta figures to set the stage for the Breeders Cup Distaff five weeks later and a final championship showdown.Sadler gave Stellar Wind an extra week of recovery after the Hirsch, then went back to training with a steady beat of weekly works, most recently three-quarters in 1:12 and change.They might have underestimated us a little bit last time, Sadler said. Do you think we can get them to do that again? Probably not. But we know that both mares like Santa Anita a lot.This is true. The 6-year-old Beholder has run 14 times at Santa Anita and won 13, losing only the 2013 Santa Ynez Stakes when second to Renees Titan. The 4-year-old Stellar Wind has won three of four Santa Anita starts, losing only the Vanity last June, to Beholder.Its another heavyweight bout, Sadler said. Im excited. ' ' '
