NHL’s Kevin Klein scores winner after losing part of ear

The next time you see a soccer player rolling around on the pitch like he’s been hit been with a straight right hand by heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko or shot by a bazooka, you may want to compare him to hockey player Kevin Klein. The New York Rangers’ defenceman recently lost a part of his left ear during an NHL game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The 30-year-old Klein took a high stick to the head from Zach Sill in the first period. While it looked like he suffered a nasty cut, the team trainers suddenly realized that part of his ear was hanging off.

North America’s top 20 sports cities in 2014

The year is almost over so now’s a good time to take a look back at 2014 and see which North American cities were the most successful when it came to their professional sports franchises.

Some cities are fortunate enough to have teams in all of the top leagues, such as the NFL (football), NBA (basketball), MLB (baseball), NHL (ice hockey) and MLS (soccer). However, other communities may have just one or two pro franchises to cheer for.

For the 2014 rankings, cities have to have at least two pro sports franchises in their greater metropolitan area. The clubs’ records were all taken into account and divided by the number of teams to come to the city’s overall winning percentage. Of course, these numbers may change ever so slightly from now until the end of the year since the NBA, NHL and NFL are still all in action. The records used for the rankings were regular-season games only and no playoff contests.

NHL hit with outbreak of mumps

NHL players may literally want to clean up their act since at least a dozen of them have been diagnosed with the mumps so far in the 2014/15 season. The latest to be hit with the disease is all-star defenseman Ryan Suter of the Minnesota Wild. In fact he’s the fifth member of the Wild to suffer from mumps. His teammates Jonas Brolin, Christian Folin, Keith Ballard and Marco Scandella all missed several games this campaign due to the disease. In addition, three members of the Anaheim Ducks missed games with mumps earlier in the season. These were Francois Beauchemin, Clayton Stoner and Corey Perry.
