Nine players on three NHL teams have contracted mumps this season, an unexpected outb
Nine players on three NHL teams have contracted mumps this season, an unexpected outbreak that the league and the players association are trying to contain. Will Barton Jersey .Ryan Suter recently joined Minnesota Wild teammates Keith Ballard, Marco Scandella, Jonas Brodin and Christian Folin, Corey Perry, Clayton Stoner and Francois Beauchemin of the Anaheim Ducks and Tanner Glass of the New York Rangers to be diagnosed with the disease.Those infected with mumps can have a fever, headaches, muscle aches, fatigue and loss of appetite, followed by the swelling of salivary glands, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the league has been in contact with team doctors and training staffs about best practices to prevent the spread of mumps, which has caught everyone off guard.It is certainly an outbreak that was unexpected and has caused unwanted disruption at the team level, but it is not something we have any significant control over, Daly said. As long as our clubs are doing what they need to do to minimize risk of contraction, we are hopeful that the wave of cases will run their course and life will return to normal in the relatively near term.Nine out of some 600 players getting the mumps is not a full-fledged epidemic, but the lack of familiarity about mumps has made it a talking point around the league. As Wild star Zach Parise joked to the Star-Tribute in Minneapolis: What is this, the Oregon Trail? Where are we right now? Every team seems to get the flu once a year, but the mumps?When Perry and Beauchemin were ill and eventually tests showed they had mumps, the NHL/NHLPA joint health and safety committee began working with teams to prevent further spread.The NHLPA has been actively educating the players regarding the recent outbreak, while providing best practices on how to avoid contracting and spreading mumps, spokesman Jonathan Weatherdon said.The mumps virus is spread through saliva or mucus, usually from coughing, sneezing or talking, according to the CDC. Sharing drinks and utensils can also contribute to spreading the infection.Its something were aware of, Vancouver Canucks NHLPA representative Kevin Bieksa said. The PAs addressed it, weve sent out a couple emails with some of the symptoms and some of the warning signs. Most of us have been vaccinated, so were doing whatever we can to prevent it.The Canucks arent the only ones taking precautions. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault told reporters that his team would be getting booster shots after they found out Glass had the mumps.According to the Winnipeg Free Press, the Jets have told their players not to share water bottles or towels and have been disinfecting dressing rooms when on the road.The first mumps vaccine was licensed in the United States in 1967, according to the CDC. The measles-mumps-rubella vaccine began to be administered in Canada in the early 1970s, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada.Originally, one dose of the MMR vaccine was administered to a child aged between 12 and 15 months. In 1989, several health agencies recommended the vaccine be increased to two doses, the second given between ages 4 and 6.The CDC says two doses of the vaccine are 88 per cent effective at preventing mumps, while one dose is 78 per cent effective.Theres no one common theme to the spread of mumps in the NHL, as the nine players range in age from 21 to 34 and are of three different nationalities. Suter (born in 1985) and Ballard (1982) are American; Perry (1985), Beauchemin (1980), Stoner (1985), Scandella (1990) and Glass (1983) are Canadian; while Brodin (1993) and Folin (1991) are Swedish.Even though he got vaccinated, Bieksa acknowledged being taken aback by news that mumps is going around.Obviously when theres a little bit of a small epidemic in the league, you kind of get concerned, he said. We played a lot of those teams (like) Anaheim, when they were going through it.Each new case brings more conversation about the mumps virus. Bieksa knew about the cases with the Ducks and Wild but hadnt heard of Glass getting it.Told the league couldnt anticipate this outbreak, Bieksa said: And rightfully so. Who would expect us to have the mumps?---A look at the NHL players who have contracted mumps and how many games they missed:Keith Ballard, Wild: 8 gamesJonas Brodin, Wild: 7 gamesChristian Folin, Wild: 5 gamesCorey Perry, Ducks: 5 gamesFrancois Beauchemin, Ducks: 5 gamesClayton Stoner, Ducks: 5 games Tanner Glass, Rangers: 3 gamesRyan Suter, Wild: 2 games (Ongoing absence)Marco Scandella, Wild: 2 games---Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Gary Harris Jersey . After a first half in which he thought "the lid was on the basket," the Toronto Raptors coach watched his squad mount a second half surge to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-91. Allen Iverson Jersey .Brazil midfielder Ricardo Goulart scored the winner in the 50th minute to give the defending champion a four-point advantage in the standings over second-place Sao Paulo, which beat rival Palmeiras 2-0. http://www.authenticnuggetsproshop.com/T...es-Jersey/ . -- The defending Canadian womens curling champions squandered an opportunity to take sole possession of first place in the standings Tuesday at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts. PRETORIA, South Africa -- A South African judge on Friday found Oscar Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide in the shooting death of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp and declared him not guilty of murder. Prosecutors said they were disappointed by the ruling but would decide on whether to appeal only after sentencing. Judge Thokozile Masipa said there was not enough evidence to support the contention that Pistorius knew Steenkamp was behind a locked toilet door in his home when he shot through the door in the predawn hours of Valentines Day last year. Masipa said prosecutors had not proven beyond a reasonable doubt that Pistorius intended to kill Steenkamp. "Its a big burden off us, off our shoulders," Pistorius uncle, Arnold Pistorius, said. "We always knew the facts of the matter and we never had any doubt in Oscars version of this tragic incident." Pistorius said he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder when he shot her, while the prosecution said he killed her intentionally after an argument. The killing by a national sports hero stunned South Africans, and reactions on the verdict were mixed. "Well I think the verdict is shocking to say the least," said Leonard Gray in Port Elizabeth, Steenkamps home town. "I think there is clear evidence and indications that he committed murder in this case. ... I feel sorry for Reeva Steenkamps family because theyre not going to get any closure because this guy is basically getting away with murder in my opinion." However, Shrina Padayachy, also in Port Elizabeth, called the judges verdict "fair and just because its the prosecution that must prove beyond a reasonable doubt and from what I gather and seen they havent." Free again after the judge extended his bail, the double-amputee Olympian left the courtroom surrounded by police officers. Pistorius must return on Oct. 13 when his sentencing hearing will start, Judge Masipa said. Pistorius didnt comment. The red-robed judge earlier ordered Pistorius, 27, to stand before she delivered the formal verdicts on the multiple counts against him, and said they were unanimous verdicts, meaning she and her two legal assessors agreed on the findings. The conviction of culpable homicide, or negligent killing, can bring a maximum prison sentence of 15 years, although legal experts pointed to five years as a guideline. Some legal analysts said they understood why Pistorius was found not guilty of premeditated murder but were surprised that the runner was not convicted of murder. The prosecution also was troubled by the not guilty verdict for murder. "We believe there is sufficient and credible evidence to secure a conviction" on a murder charge, said Nathi Mncube, spokesman for the National Prosecuting Authority. He said, however, that any decision to appeal the judges ruling would come after the case is "concluded" with senteencing. Kenneth Faried Jersey. Unlike many other times during the trial that began on Mar. 3, Pistorius showed no emotion as he stood in his dark suit with his hands crossed in front of him for the judgment. The athlete was hugged by relatives when the judge ordered a recess soon after announcing her verdicts. Arnold Pistorius, the uncle, said the family was "grateful" to Judge Masipa for acquitting Pistorius of murder. "A tragic event like this, theres no victors in this," Arnold Pistorius said in the courtroom, reading from a prepared statement. Judge Masipa said Pistorius sentencing hearing would begin on Oct. 13, when both sides will be able to call witnesses to argue ahead of the judges ruling on if, or for how long, Pistorius is sent to prison for negligently killing Steenkamp. The sentence for a culpable homicide conviction is at the judges discretion, and it can range from a suspended sentence and a fine to up to a maximum of 15 years in prison. After the verdict, Pistorius sat with his sister Aimee on the wooden bench where he has spent most of his six-month murder trial. She put an arm around his shoulders and spoke to him. For the first time in the trial, Pistorius had left the courtroom for an adjournment before his jail was extended by going down the stairs that led to the cells in the courthouse. Thats because Pistorius bail had expired after his conviction and the judge was considering whether to re-grant him bail. Defence lawyer Barry Roux told the judge that Pistorius should stay free on bail until sentencing because he had complied with bail conditions imposed on him after he killed Steenkamp. Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel, however, said Pistorius now had more reason to flee because he had probably hoped for an acquittal during the trial. "Now he knows for a fact that, Ive been convicted of a serious offence and imprisonment is probable," Nel said. Masipa ruled that it was not in the interests of justice to deny Pistorius bail. Members of Steenkamps family, including her mother June and father Barry, were in court to hear the verdict in the 29-year-old models killing. A close friend of Steenkamps cried in court during the verdict. The judge also ruled that the athlete was guilty of unlawfully firing a gun in a public place when a friends pistol he was handling discharged under a table in a restaurant in Johannesburg in early 2013 -- weeks before Steenkamps killing. Pistorius was acquitted on two other weapons charges, including another count of firing a gun in public and a count of illegal possession of ammunition in the Pretoria home where he killed Steenkamp on Feb. 14, 2013. On Friday, armed security officers stood at each of the three entrances to the courtroom, while others stood near the judge as she explained her verdicts from her dais overlooking the court. There were also paramedics in the courtroom. Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
