Minnesota Wild have explored trading Zach Parise While the Minnesota Wild are hardly calling it a rebuilding project, it’s been quite obvious of late that they have been doing just that. After all, the team has traded away Charlie Coyle, Nino Niederreiter and Mikael Granlund in the second half of the season last year and continue to look like they are getting younger and younger. In an in-depth piece about Wild forward Zach Parise, The Athletic’s Michael Russo (subscription required) writes that The Athletic has learned general manager Paul Fenton has discussed the possibility of trading Parise at the draft and in the weeks since then in hopes of finding a trade partner.

Ohio gunman taken down within 30 seconds of first shots -police A gunman who attacked revelers outside a bar in Dayton, Ohio, early on Sunday, killing nine people and wounding 27 others, was taken down by officers within 30 seconds of firing his first shots, the city's police chief said. Authorities do not know yet why Connor Betts, a 24-year-old white male from Bellbrook, Ohio, launched his attack, Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said at a news conference. He said Betts was wearing a mask and ear protection and was armed with an assault-style rifle and shotgun.

Boston University has examined the brains of more than 100 former NFL and NHL players to see whether they suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE can only be diagnosed after death. After playing in the NHL, he wound up on a medical care program provided by the state .”

From the Rep:

Harry Campbell, an investigator for Stark County Coroner Anthony P. Bertin, said Slagle also left a lengthy paper-written message on a table inside the home.

Campbell said the coroner’s office has removed Slagle’s brain, which will be sent to the CTE Center at Boston University for examination. Testing for CTE can’t be done on a living person, so diagnosis can only be made post-mortem.

“Dr. Bertin told the family he would help in any way possible,” Campbell said, adding the family also wanted to have Slagle’s brain examined for CTE.

Research into CTE and its effects on the brain are still relatively in their infancy. While the brain disease has been associated with playing football — it’s been found in large quantities of players who have donated their brains after experiencing memory and other mental issues — there is, at the moment, been no direct link found between the disease and playing football or another sport with repeated head trauma.
