ve for three-fourths of the game against UW. NAU entered

NEWARK, N. Thunder Jerseys Online .J. -- The Toronto Maple Leafs picked up size and depth in Sundays NHL draft in the former of Rimouski centre Frederik Gauthier. But they will likely have to wait for their 21st overall pick to make his presence felt in the NHL. "Hes big," Toronto GM Dave Nonis said when asked about his first-round pick. "Hes a big man." Gauthier is one for the future and, at six foot four and 215 pounds, the 18-year-old from Laval, Que., is a load. Hes billed as a strong two-way player who led first-year Quebec Major Junior Hockey League players in faceoff percentage. He ranked eighth among North American skaters, according to NHL Central Scouting. "Ive never seen a kid get back and play defence like he does in 20 years," said Chris Bordeleau of NHL Central Scouting. "In his own end, hes always around the puck. A kid that can play defence like he does at his age, with that kind of maturity, is very rare." Gauthier had 22 goals and 28 assists in his first season with the Oceanic, to rank fourth among rookies. He also helped Canada earn a gold medal at the 2013 Under-18 World Championship in Russia with a goal and three assists in seven games. Nonis said the Leafs had four or five players in mind with their first pick and had looked into moving up. But they abandoned the effort after deducing that Gauthier would still be there when their turn came around. "He fills a need long-term for us," said Nonis. "I dont expect that well see him shortly but hes come a long way in a short amount of time. He was playing midget hockey not too long ago." Gauthier will come to rookie camp with the Leafs. "Someone asked me earlier how long is it going to take for him. Its going to take as long as it takes," said Nonis. "Theres not going to be any rushing of any of these players. We want to do a better job of being as deep as we can be so we can keep the players where they should be playing until theyre developed and ready to come and play for us." Gauthier, who says he models his game after Jordan Staal, said he was surprised and excited to be taken by Toronto. He had spoken to the team at the recent NHL Combine. "Ill try and make the NHL next year for sure," he said. "And if I dont, Ill go back to Rimouski and play junior and continue at school." Nonis said he looked at moving higher in the draft but the price was too steep. "The assets to move up didnt make any sense." Wholesale Thunder Jerseys . -- Stanfords Kevin Danser knelt on one knee and hardly moved on the sideline as Michigan State celebrated its Rose Bowl victory and his Cardinal teammates made their way to the locker room. Black Friday Thunder Jerseys . PAUL, Minn. . Spiller left Week 3s 27-20 loss to the New York Jets with a thigh injury, but fully practiced with the team all week and expects to be ready to go on Sunday. SEATTLE -- After struggling defensively in its first two games of the season -- even surrendering 98 points to Yale in a home loss to open the 2016 slate -- Washington appeared to find its mojo on both sides of the ball Sunday in a 92-58 win over Northern Arizona at Alaska Airlines Arena.The Huskies (2-1) set the tone defensively on the Lumberjacks (1-4) opening two possessions, one ending in a Malik Dime block and the other a turnover forced by Matisse Thybulle, the first of five from the Lumberjacks before the under-12 timeout and 16 total.Weve improved (since Yale), Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said. There is more of a sense of urgency out there. That means our teams gonna be better defensively. Theres more of an awareness, more of a want-to. Still got a long ways to go, but definitely made an improvement.Markelle Fultz made 6 of 9 from the field, including two 3-pointers and finished with 16 points, eight assists and seven rebounds. It was his first game not scoring at least 30 points, but taking only nine shots and focusing on getting the Huskies big men involved was part of the game plan going in, Romar said. Washington finished with 50 points in the paint, compared to 24 for NAU.The Lumberjacks remained within striking distance into the second half, but Washington put them away in the games final 13 minutes. The Huskies opened up a 38-point lead, going on 33-10 run before inserting the last men on their bench for the final three minutes.We started denying their big men when they came up to run the high-low and reverse the ball, Noah Dickerson said of what keyed their 23-point run. Once we started to do that, they didnt run any offense. It was basically one-on-one or a ball screen. . We were off to the races.Dickerson scored 12 and ggrabbed eight rebounds, Thybulle had 15 points for the Huskies. Womens Thunder Jerseys. elix Rivera-Vega scored 11 and Ako Kaluna finished with 10 points and five rebounds for NAU.BIG PICTURENorthern Arizona: Although the Lumberjacks were overmatched physically and athletically -- to be expected from a Big Sky team facing one from the Pac-12 -- they have to be satisfied with keeping it largely competitive for three-fourths of the game against UW. NAU entered the game with just one win in its first four, and it came against a Division III opponent, Benedictine Mesa. NAU cleaned up some sloppy play early in the game and can look to take a sliver of momentum into its game at UNLV on Tuesday.Washington: The Huskies turned in their best performance of the young season, proving they can put away a team, albeit an outclassed one. After giving up 98 points to Yale and 88 to Cal State Fullerton, holding NAU to 58 is a welcome sight for Lorenzo Romar. The Lumberjacks shooting percentage rarely climbed above 40 percent all game, finishing with 20-of-65 shooting (30.8 percent).HE SAID ITIf I were a betting man, Id bet you a pack of Red Vines that he will. -- Romar on if Fultz will record a triple-double before he leaves Washington. He came up two assists and three rebounds shy on Sunday.UP NEXTNorthern Arizona: The Lumberjacks play their second of back-to-back road games when they visit UNLV at 7 p.m. MT on Tuesday.Washington: The Huskies finish up a stretch of four straight home games to open the season against Long Beach State at 8 p.m. PT on Tuesday before heading to Las Vegas for the Global Sports MTE, where NAU is also a participant. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
