Sport John Tortorella directs another punishing practice at Flyers camp
Accident or murder? Wife of Pittsburgh dentist dies from fatal gunshot
When Lawrence and Bianca Rudolph traveled to Zambia on a big game hunt in 2016, no one would have imagined Bianca would never make it home — and that the journey would end years later with allegations of cover-ups, infidelity, fraud and murder.Lawrence "Larry" Rudolph and his wife, Bianca, were getting ready to head back to the United States after a safari vacation in Zambia, Africa, in October 2016 when tragedy struck.
With his body going numb and switching to autopilot, defenseman Cam York had one thought in his head as he sprinted around the rink: “Please be done.”
After playing almost 21 minutes the night before in the Flyers’ first preseason game, York and his teammates hit the ice Sunday for another scrimmage, more drills and, of course, more sprints.
“It’s been hard, and I’m sure it’s going to continue to be tough,” York said. “But I know these coaches are looking for guys that can kind of stick with it and can continue to grind even when your body’s telling you not to.”

New coach John Tortorella warned that the going gets tougher around day four of camp. The players who dressed Saturday night had sprinted in three out of four days and competed in a physical preseason game. Those who weren’t part of the game roster have now sprinted for four straight days.
And these sprints aren’t brief drills. Tortorella has had players sprint for 15 minutes straight as he stands in the center of the rink with a whistle, yelling at them to push themselves. On Saturday, players were visibly starting to lag. But they kept at it.
Tortorella has a lot of training camps under his belt, and as the players circle by him, he knows exactly what he’s looking for. He’s watching their body language, their expressions and their form. While he doesn’t care if it’s ugly, he cares if they’re trying to cheat by gliding or if they’re trying to power through it.

“I don’t depend on a lot of numbers and the analytics, the VO2, all the stuff we do,” Tortorella said. “I just — I like the eye test, and I depend on my stomach for all the opinions that I make.”
So far, Tortorella has been happy with the energy and the spirit the players have shown him. During Saturday’s 2-1 victory against Boston, he certainly saw struggles, but he also saw a lot of effort. The mistakes don’t bother him at this point — “it’s a game of mistakes,” Tortorella said.
Eventually, he’ll get into the X’s and O’s and check the skills and fundamentals of players. But for now, he’s waiting to see how the guys push through after another day of sprinting.
2022 Lakers Roster: Everyone we know is coming to training camp
As the Lakers work to fill out their roster this offseason, here’s our list that will be constantly updated of every player coming to Lakers training camp.There are a number of ways the Lakers can add players to their training camp roster. While fully-guaranteed deals are pretty self-explanatory — as are partially, or non-guaranteed deals — the team can also sign players to two-way and Exhibit 10 deals in the coming weeks and months to have more bodies available when they start playing preseason exhibitions.
Injuries hit early
The Flyers added three more injuries to the list that.
Starting goalie Carter Hart is day-to-day with a lower body injury. He did not participate in practice.
Forward Artem Anisimov played in the first preseason game Saturday and blocked a shot. He is now day-to-day with a lower body injury.
Forward Cam Atkinson is day-to-day with an upper body injury. He did not play in the scrimmage but participated in the on-ice practice.
Braun, York reunited

“He’s a great person for me to go to, off the ice, on the ice,” York said. “I was happy. Obviously, just a lot of emotions.”
York bounced around on the defensive pairings last season, but he spent six regular-season games and one preseason contest alongside Braun. Even when they weren’t partnering, Braun tried to impart wisdom gained from 12 seasons in the NHL.
“I was impressed with him, you know, very confident with the puck, makes a good outlet,” Braun said. “I was trying to get him to jump a little more, jumping in the seams, getting a little more confident.”
Watching York’s games at the end of the season, Braun could see York start to improve in those areas. And after an intense offseason, the 21-year-old York has returned looking stronger. Add that to his skill, and he’ll see a payoff during the season, Braun said.
