Liam Kirk was on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean Sam Darnold Youth Jersey , about 4,600 miles away from Dallas, on Saturday when he became the first player born and trained in England to be selected in the NHL draft.

Early in the seventh and final round of the draft, the Arizona Coyotes took the 18-year-old Kirk with the 189th overall pick .

”To finally see my name on the board was just incredible,” Kirk said by phone from England. ”And to get a call from the GM was even better, just to know that’s the place I’m going. And that’s what I’m aiming to be, and to play my NHL career.”

The 6-foot, 161-pound Kirk played this season for Sheffield Steelers in the Elite Ice Hockey League, the highest level of competition in the United Kingdom, and for a team where the average age is 28. He had nine goals and seven assists in 52 games for the Steelers in his second season with the team.

Even though cricket and soccer are much more popular sports in England, Kirk already was dreaming about playing for Sheffield when he was only about 6 years old and going to Steelers games with his parents and older brother. He started to learn about the NHL within a couple of years.

Tim Bernhardt Logan Woodside Jersey , Arizona’s director of amateur scouting, said NHL Central Scouting identified Kirk. The Coyotes then sent one of their scouts in Europe to see him, and more followed.

”He’s a thin kid, needs a lot of physical development, but they said he’s got a good idea of the game, and his natural skills were very good,” Bernhardt said.

Born in Rotherham, Kirk this year became the first player born and trained in England to attend the NHL’s pre-draft scouting combine in Buffalo. Now he is the first to be drafted, and he wants to be the first to play in the NHL.

”I just want to prove myself, and prove I can play,” said Kirk Darius Leonard Jersey , who will soon move to North America to start playing here.

The Coyotes were among the teams that met with Kirk at the combine, and he knew there was a chance that they would take him. But he didn’t know for sure while watching the draft with his family.

His name finally got called Saturday night in England, six hours ahead of Dallas time, where it was early afternoon when he got picked.

”He wants to be here. He’s coming over here to play now,” Bernhardt said. ”He’s played in the men’s league. It’s hard for him to find a spot to play because he’s too good for the juniors. … You’re not going to find that kind of skill in the seventh round, so let’s go for it and see where we can get it to.”




CALGARY, Alberta — The Columbus Blue Jackets kicked off their final extended road trip of the regular season with a come-from-behind 7-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.

Now the Blue Jackets (43-29-5) want to keep that momentum going when they face the struggling Calgary Flames (35-32-10) on Thursday night at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

“We wanted to start it off with a win, obviously,” Blue Jackets forward Boone Jenner said in regard to the team’s road swing through western Canada. “We’ve got two more games left on the trip. They’re all big points. We’re just looking forward to Calgary now, getting the job done there. It’s a big win for us (against Edmonton), but we’ve just got to gear up for the next one.”

Jenner and linemates Thomas Vanek and Alexander Wennberg combined for nine points against the Oilers Michael Gallup Jersey , who jumped out to an early 3-0 lead before the Jackets rallied for their 11th win in their past 12 games.

“We can feel it as a line,” said Jenner, who scored once and set up two others, Vanek finished with a hat trick and an assist, and Wennberg had two assists. “We’re always talking. We’re getting more and more comfortable with each other and each other’s tendencies and where to be for each other. It’s a lot better when you’re like that. You can get that chemistry going.”

Cam Atkinson, Artemi Panarin and Markus Nutivaara also scored for the Jackets, who bounced back from a 2-1 loss at home to the St. Louis Blues on Saturday.

“It’s amazing how many guys were not rolling the first half of the season and how we, as a team, stuck with it and found ways to get points to get to where we are now,” said Atkinson, who has put up seven goals and four assists in his past nine games. “In order for us to go on this deep run Austin Corbett Browns Jersey , you need your best players going (and) you need your veteran guys going, and all the older guys have been stepping up.”

While the Blue Jackets have firmly entrenched themselves into a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with a six-point bulge in the wild-card race, the Flames have completely fallen out of the postseason picture in the Western Conference.

By virtue of a 3-0 road loss to the Los Angeles Kings, the Flames were mathematically eliminated on Monday.

“If you look at the way our team’s played, we’re battling,” said Flames coach Glen Gulutzan, whose team has dropped six straight decisions and seven of their past eight. “Guys are fighting still until the end. We’re never laying down and getting outshot and outplayed and dominated, but we’re having trouble scoring, there’s no question.”

Already missing forwards Sean Monahan and Matthew Tkachuk because of injuries, the Flames are also playing without leading scorer Johnny Gaudreau, who returned home to New Jersey earlier this week after his father Uchenna Nwosu Chargers Jersey , Guy Gaudreau, suffered a cardiac event on Sunday.

“It’s really family first there right now. He needs to be there,” said Gulutzan, who hasn’t been displeased with the effort level of his players in the absence of Gaudreau, Monahan and Tkachuk. “When you take your top three scorers out of the lineup, it stings. As far as work ethic … that’s one thing that we can always bring to the table and that’s what our guys are doing right now is working their tails off and battling.”

With four of Calgary’s five remaining games on home ice, defenseman Mark Giordano said he and his teammates want to “come out and play with emotion and show the character we have in this room.”

The Calgary captain added, “We know we haven’t played as well as we’ve wanted too on home ice, so in these last few games at home try and bring a lot of energy and emotion and give our crowd a few great home games.”
