The NHL has its first Aussie.
Washington Capitals forward Nathan Walker is scheduled to make his NHL debut against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday, becoming the first Australian national to play in the NHL.
The 23-year-old Walker, born in Sydney, became the first-Australian to be drafted when Washington selected him in the 3rd round, 89th overall, in 2014.
Game Mens Mike Alstott Jersey Bradford has missed the last three games after suffering a knee injury against the Saints in Week 1. The Vikings are still classifying Bradford as day-to-day, but the quarterback hopes to have a better idea of when he can return to playing in a game by Saturday.
Hopefully after today’s practice, tomorrow’s practice, seeing how it responds to multiple days of practice and multiple days of work, I’ll have a better idea of what it’s going to be like, Bradford said. In my mind, I’m hoping by [Saturday] that I’ll have a good idea of where I’m at.
Game Mens Clay Matthews Jersey Tyrod Taylor, QB, Bills: For the third time in four weeks, Taylor failed to reach the 15-point threshold, posting a season-low 8.94 on Sunday. That was the third-worst score in any of his 33 career starts, behind his 5.54 of 2016 Week 1 and 8.54 of 2016 Week 11 (that one also in a game against the Bengals). Is it that the Bengals, whom the Bills don’t play again this year, have Taylor’s number? Perhaps, though Charles Clay’s (knee) status will have a bearing upon Taylor’s fantasy appeal once the Bills return from their Week 6 bye. Taylor’s mobility keeps his floor high enough to lock him into the QB2 class, but expecting much more with the weapons he has might be asking too much.
