Video: NHL Follies Often End in Pain

The Flyers are in the middle of a much-needed long stretch of days off, but the NHL news is at hot as it gets today. In the clip below, you can see the two on-ice events that has everyone abuzz. First, Alex Ovechkin goes knee-to-knee with Tim Gleason, giving further ammo to the growing group of detractors that say AO is a dirty (yet obviously talented) player. The hit was careless and stupid on several levels, not the least of which being that Ovie also hurt himself with it. Most believe some league discipline is on the way, or should be, with these incidents becoming less and less "isolated" for Ovechkin.

Then, speaking of careless and stupid... Watch as Keith Ballard winds up and baseball-bat slashes his own goalie in the head (accidentally, kinda), sending him off on a stretcher and to the hospital. Video ATJ.

Isaac Seumalo enters training camp as Eagles' starting left guard

So much for competition. Isaac Seumalo is the Eagles' starting left guard, offensive coordinator Frank Reich said Wednesday morning. 

Reich nonchalantly named Seumalo the starter for training camp when asked about the competition at the position. 

"Isaac's the starter and then it's just competition from there," Reich said. "That's the great thing about training camp, the great thing about this business: it's so stinking competitive. It's what the guys love about it. It's what we love about it. Again, it'll play itself out."

After splitting reps with veteran Allen Barbre during the spring, Seumalo, the second-year lineman, will at the very least enter training camp as the starter at LG between Jason Kelce and Jason Peters. 

So why does the coaching staff have confidence in the 23-year-old Seumalo?  

"Very smart (player)," Reich said. "Understands what he's being coached. Understands fronts. Understands defensive schemes, what to anticipate. Very athletic, tough-minded player." 

Barbre, 33, was the team's starter at left guard last year. In the last two seasons, he has started 28 games for the Eagles. He missed four in 2016. 

The Eagles have plenty of depth along their interior offensive line. With Seumalo, Kelce and Brandon Brooks as the starters, they'll have Allen Barbre, Stefen Wisniewski and Chance Warmack coming off the bench. 

It seems likely that Seumalo, who was a third-round pick out of Oregon State last year, will eventually move to center for the Eagles. That was his position in college and the Eagles have been working to get him snaps at center since his arrival. But for now, Kelce is the way, so Seumalo will bide his time as the Eagles' starting at left guard.
