ST. Air Max Shoes Cheap . PAUL, Minn. – Every morning for the final month of 2014, Leo Komarov woke up and hoped he simply didnt have a headache. That was life with a concussion for the Maple Leafs 27-year-old winger. He called it a weird feeling, this existence of being not quite awful, but never quite right, either. There were the small headaches that became sporadic throughout the day. There was the newfound sensitivity to lights and movement. It was strange, though not completely unfamiliar. It wasnt fun, said Komarov on the first day of 2015, feeling better in recent weeks. I could do everything Im used to doing, its just something wasnt right. This was not the first concussion for Komarov. He had two small ones in the past, he says. One time, he was even knocked out on the ice, but well enough, apparently, to play the next day. The Leafs took no such chances, though. Operating under a new climate of increased sensitivity to head injuries in hockey (and pro sports), they held Komarov out for 14 games. He was allowed to skate four days after he was first clipped by Alex Ovechkin, didnt feel quite right after and was kept on relative rest for the next couple weeks. He was urged to report symptoms whenever he felt them. The headaches seemed to be the most constant thing. They were minor, he says, but present just about every day. Sometimes hed wake up in the morning and feel fine, only for his head to start throbbing some time thereafter. He tried to watch TV, but never for quite as long as usual, played around on his iPad, nothing really out of the ordinary in the day-to-day of his normal life, though one that excluded hockey. He lingered with this undercurrent of just feeling off. Its hard in the world we live in right now, its hard to be without TV or phones or internet, Komarov says with some thought. I think if you locked yourself in a dark room, you would go crazy. Komarov started gearing up bit by bit by the middle of December. He began skating again in the third week of the month, rejoined the team on the ice a short while later and was finally back at practice for the first time this past Saturday in Sunrise, Florida. He was declared ready to play Wednesday in Boston after enduring three days of body contact without issue. In his first game back against the Bruins, Komarov scored the first Leaf goal in an eventual shootout win. He doesnt have any symptoms now, he says, but still kind of feels strange. He was even nervous to see how hed react to the bright lights, sounds and feel of being in a packed arena again, the TD Garden holding more than 17,000 people on Wednesday night. Its not maybe like where it used to be, but its probably because I havent [played] for a month. Just need to get used to it, said Komarov, who was credited with nine hits in the win over Boston. And you miss it, too. The only thing I can do is play hockey. Youre out for a month and its strange. Therein lies the challenge of concussions and part of why its been such a struggle to even confront, let alone overcome them. Theres just no predictability or sameness to the injury. Every one is different. And the symptoms can really only be reported by the individual. Theres no MRI to point out whats wrong, no simple test that can say with certainty whether a concussion is present or not. Word is Komarov even passed that first concussion test following the hit from Ovechkin. But evidently he did have a concussion after all. Daniel Winnik, sitting a stall over from Komarov in the spacious visiting room of the Minnesota Wilds home rink – where the Leafs will play Friday – was briefly knocked unconscious from a huge collision earlier this year. He did not have a concussion and was ready to play just a few days later. Thats the thing, said Komarov. Usually when youve got an AC joint or something, you know its going to be 4-6 weeks and you can start practicing after two weeks maybe, and be ready [soon after]. But in my situation, I couldnt really do anything. I just tried to wake up every morning and hope it was better, but it took time. Its a hard situation to be in, he concluded. You cant really do anything. Discount Air Max Shoes .

Szabados joined the Southern Professional Hockey League team last week. The 27-year-old goaltender from Edmonton backstopped the Canadian womens hockey team to Olympic gold Feb.ATLANTA -- After an unbeaten run through the Southeastern Conference, top-ranked Florida reaped its rewards Monday. Scottie Wilbekin was picked as The Associated Press Southeastern Conference player of the year, while Billy Donovan took the coaching honour for the second season in a row. Kentucky freshman Julius Randle was selected as newcomer of the year. The AP awards were announced one day after Florida defeated Kentucky 61-60 in the championship game of the SEC tournament. The Gators (32-2) were named top overall seed in the NCAAs and will open against either Albany or Mount St. Marys in the South Regional. Wilbekin and Randle were unanimous choices to the All-SEC first team, joined by Tennessee forward Jarnell Stokes, Florida forward Casey Prather and Missouri guard Jabari Brown. Wilbekin averaged 13 points and 3.8 assists a game. More important, the 6-foot-2 senior guard was the unquestioned leader for the Gators at both ends of the court, making amends from two suspensions that threatened his future with the program. He missed the first five games this season for an undisclosed violation of team rules, after behind held out the first three games the previous year. "I think when he went through that, our guys were like, OK, it happened one time, blah, blah, blah. But now it happens again, guys start pulling back, saying, OK, man, is this guy about us? Does this guy even care about us or our team?" Donovan said. Wilbekin worked hard to rebuild the relationship with his teammates, and it showed on the court. "He had to go through a long process of showing these guys that he cares and hes committed to them," Donovan said. "I think once he got through the end of that process, I think our guys kind of put their arms around him and were like, Wow, coach made this guy go through a lot. A lot of that had to do with me wanting to help him restore his credibility inside the team, and he had to do that and hes grown from that on and off the court." Wilbekin was named MVP of the SEC tournament. During hard-fought wins in both the semifinals and final, he would gather the team around him when things werent going Floridas way. "Coach cant talk to us all the time," he said, "so we try to huddle ourselves and say the right things amonng ourselves. Cheap Air Max Shoes Store. ." Donovan repeated as coach of the year with Florida becoming the first team to go 18-0 in SEC games during the regular season. The Gators won three more games at the Georgia Dome this past weekend for their first tournament title since 2007. "Anytime you get those coaching honours or coaching awards, a lot of it is because youve got a good group and theyve done a great job," Donovan said. "I do think that when individual awards come out, its much, much more of a reflection of the people around you. Even with Scotties award, Id say the same thing. Its more of a reflection of the people around him. I think for me, its the players and the coaching staff, the people I have around me." Randle emerged as the top player from Kentuckys latest group of heralded freshmen. While some thought the Wildcats (24-10) underachieved -- after all, they started the season No. 1 and there was even speculation about whether they could go unbeaten -- the 6-foot-9 Randle led the conference in rebounding (10.5 a game) and ranked 10th in scoring (15.0). Kentucky was seeded eighth in the NCAAs and will open Friday against Kansas State in the Midwest Regional. "I feel like our chemistry is getting better," Randle said. "Were becoming a better team, getting better every game." Stokes, a 6-8 junior forward, helped Tennessee (21-12) join Florida and Kentucky as the only SEC schools in the 68-team NCAA field, ranking second to Randle in rebounding (10.3) and 12th in scoring (14.7). The Vols will face Iowa on Wednesday in a first-round game at Dayton. Prather was another of Floridas senior leaders. The 6-6 forward paced the Gators in scoring at 14.2 points per game. Brown, a 6-5 junior guard, led the SEC in scoring with an average of 19.8 points. Florida landed another player on the All-SEC second team: senior centre Patric Young. He was joined by Tennessee forward Jordan McRae, Alabama guard Trevor Releford and a pair of LSU forwards, Johnny OBryant III and Jordan Mickey. McRae and Releford both slipped to the second team after making the top squad in 2013. The 66th annual AP All-SEC team was selected by a 12-member regional media panel.
