The Edmonton Oilers retooled their goaltending on Wednesday, trading Devan Dubnyk to the Nashville Predators in exchange for forward Matt Hendricks and acquiring goaltender Ben Scrivens from the Los Angeles Kings for a 2014 third-round pick. Julio Teheran Braves Jersey . The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. The Kings acquired Scrivens, along with Matt Frattin and a second-round draft pick, from the Maple Leafs last summer in a trade that saw goaltender Jonathan Bernier sent to Toronto. The Spruce Grove, AB, native - who will become an unrestricted free agent this summer - has seven wins in 19 games this season. With the trade, the Kings called up goaltender Martin Jones from Manchester of the AHL on Wednesday afternoon to be the backup for Jonathan Quick. Dubnyk was once considered the present and future in goal for Edmonton, and he went into the season as the starter. "It hasnt really set in to be honest," Dubnyk said in a team statement. "Its a new opportunity for me and Im really excited to go to Nashville." Struggles early on led to the Oilers signing veteran free agent Ilya Bryzgalov, who was bought out last summer by the Philadelphia Flyers. In 32 games this season, the 27-year-old Dubnyk is 11-17-2 with a 3.36 goals-against average and .894 save percentage. "This organization gave me the best opportunity of a lifetime in the NHL and Im very grateful for that," he added. Dubnyk, set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer, is the second Oilers goalie traded this year. They sent Jason LaBarbera to the Chicago Blackhawks last month for future considerations. Hendricks, 32, has two goals and two assists in 44 games this season. He signed a $7.4 million, four-year deal with Nashville in the off-season. Dubnyk enters an uncertain situation with the Predators, who are still without injured franchise goaltender Pekka Rinne. Marek Mazanec and Carter Hutton have split time in goal in Rinnes absence. The Predators have not given a time frame on when they expect Rinne, who has a salary-cap hit of $7 million through the 2018-19 season, to return. Touki Toussaint Braves Jersey .Kraft says Goodell realized before seeing a video showing Baltimore running back Ray Rice striking his then fiance that domestic violence was very serious for society in general. Babe Ruth Jersey . - San Diego Padres centre fielder Cameron Maybin is going to be out two to three months after rupturing his left biceps tendon during a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. https://www.cheapbraves.com/503o-jeremy-walker-jersey-braves.html .The Ottawa Senators winger was relegated to a corner seat in the locker-room to allow Daniel Alfredsson to return to his regular stall one last time.HOUSTON -- When Chris Carter stepped up to the plate with the game tied in the 10th inning, Houston manager Bo Porter wasnt thinking about his sub-.200 batting average and the fact that he had struck out twice Thursday night. The only thing on Porters mind was Carters penchant for changing a game with one swing. "He has the ability that when he steps into the batters box hes in scoring position," Porter said. Carter homered leading off the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Astros a 5-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Carter, who homered twice on Wednesday, hit his 13th homer of the season into the Crawford Boxes in left field off J.J. Putz (1-1). "We found out again tonight why we keep running him out there," Porter said of Carter, who has had an up-and-down year and is hitting just .199. There was no doubt about the second game-ending homer of his career. "As soon as I hit it I knew it was going to be out and started celebrating almost in the box," he said. Putz lamented the pitch he threw to Carter. "He put a pretty good swing on it," Putz said. "Theres nothing else to say. I just didnt make the right pitch, I guess." Miguel Montero tied it at 4-4 in the ninth with a home run to left field on the first pitch from closer Chad Qualls. It was a game that last years Houston team would have almost certainly lost. But players and staff alike agree that things are finally starting to turn around for this team that has lost 100-plus games in three straight seasons. "Its been real exciting compared to last year, its like night and day," Carter said. "Last year we lost a bunch of games and guys were down on themselves and it just kind of seemed like there was a really bad vibe and this year everyones excited, jumping around, having fun." Carlos Corporan had a two-run home run and Jon Singleton homered and drove in two runs for the Astros (31-37), who have won six of their last eight games. Tony Sipp (1-0) struck out one in a scoreless 10th for the win. Singleton drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the first inning and broke a 1-all tiie with his solo shot to right field in the third. Austin Riley Jersey. Corporan extended Houstons lead to 4-1 with his home run to left field in the fourth. Chris Owings hit a solo homer to get Arizona within 4-3 in the seventh inning. Houston second baseman Jose Altuve was hit on the right hand by a pitch in the seventh inning. X-rays were negative and he is listed as day-to-day. David Peralta singled for Arizonas first hit with one out in the third inning. Ender Inciarte reached on an error by Altuve that left Peralta at third and he scored on a sacrifice fly by Didi Gregorius to tie it at 1-1. Enciarte was shaken up in that inning when he took a knee to the head from Jonathan Villar while stealing second base. He remained in the game but was replaced by Cody Ross in the bottom of the sixth as a precaution. Springer had two nifty defensive plays. The first one came when he sprinted from right field to centre and dived to make the catch on a ball hit by Owings for the first out of the fifth. Springer made another excellent diving catch on a fly ball by Martin Prado to start a double play to end the eighth. Paul Goldschimdt was on second and had almost reached home when Springer caught it, allowing Villar to step on second base to end the inning. The Astros celebrated "Drake Day" on Thursday with the Grammy Award-winning rapper attending the game and talking to students from the Astros Urban Youth Academy before the game. Each player came up to bat to music by the rapper and Singleton chose the tune "All Me." Seconds after the music trailed off with one out in the third inning, Singleton caught all of a 90 mph fastball from Wade Miley and launched a towering homer into the second deck in right field to give Houston a 2-1 lead. NOTES: The Diamondbacks acquired INF/C Jordan Pacheco from the Rockies and designated INF/OF Nick Evans for assignment before the game. ... Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said he doesnt expect OF Mark Trumbo, who has been out since April 22 with a stress fracture in his left foot, to return to full baseball activities for at least three more weeks.
