MISSISSAUGA - Bryson Cianfrone insists he is no goon. “That was my first penalty minutes of the year,” noted the Mississauga Steelheads centre. “I’m five-foot-eight, 174. So I’m not going to be intimidating anybody with my size at all.” Cianfrone has stayed away from social media this week, after receiving some nasty tweets and facebook messages. “Yeah I ignored all of it,” he said following Friday’s Ontario Hockey League game in which his Steelheads beat Sudbury 5-2. “If I say something bad on social media who knows what can happen right?” Cianfrone is the other guy involved in the Connor McDavid fight. “I hoped that he wasn’t hurt because you obviously don’t want anyone getting hurt like that,” said the 19 year-old in his first public comments about the incident. “I kind of felt bad that he did that during a fight because he’s not usually a fighter.” Neither is Cianfrone. “My first fight in the OHL,” he added. “After the fight there I saw him holding his hand when he was coming to the box then I saw him leave. All the guys said he was holding his hands during intermission and said there was something wrong.” McDavid broke a bone in his right hand in the fight. He will miss five to six weeks, and may not be able to suit up for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship in Montreal and Toronto. The Otters were up 4-0 on the Steelheads Tuesday afternoon, with McDavid having scored the fourth goal to go along with an earlier assist - giving him 51 points in 18 games. Then 6:10 into the second period, Cianfrone and McDavid dropped the gloves and fought. There was no history of bad blood between the pair. They were teammates for a short while a few years ago – “me and Connor are kind of buddies” - when Cianfrone was with the Toronto Marlies Minor Midget team, and McDavid was called up to play some games with the squad. “It was just a hockey play. I hit him into the boards – a little retaliation there – and then things escalated into the fight. That’s about it. The incident has reignited the entire fighting in hockey debate. A debate Cianfrone doesn’t think is needed. “I think fighting is a part of the game of hockey. If you take out fighting I don’t know how the game is going to be. People are going to be taking cheap shots at each other.” While the eyes have been focused on McDavid – widely considered the top prospect for the 2015 NHL draft and seen as a generational prospect – Cianfrone has done his best to move forward in his second OHL season. He leads the Steelheads in scoring and is captain of the team in this his second OHL season. “I don’t play a dirty game at all.” Trebuie să fii logat sau înregistrat pentru a vedea acest link. .

LUCIE, Fla.SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Ron Rivera said the Carolina Panthers plan to use their tight ends more in the passing game this season. The Panthers added free agent Ed Dickson this off-season to go along with Greg Olsen, giving them a pair of receiving options at tight end similar to what they had in Riveras first season in 2011 with Olsen and Jeremy Shockey. "Absolutely," Rivera said when asked if the moved was designed to replicate three years ago. "You want that double threat." The Panthers became a little too predictable when the team paired Olsen with Ben Hartsock, who was known almost exclusively for his run-blocking ability. "The way it was (last season) its like heres one guy who is your primary blocker and heres one guy thats your primary receiver," Rivera said. "Now we bring Ed Dickson in and you say, Which one is which?" Rivera likes that both Dickson and Olsen are versatile enough to block and still be downfield threats. Dickson has shown good speed in training camp and has the potential to be a big-time option in the passing game. He caught 54 passes for 528 yards and five touchdowns in 2011 with the Baltimore Ravens. Dicksons numbers dropped off the past two years -- he averaged 23 receptions for 249 yards and one touchdown per season -- but the Panthers view the fourth-year veteran as a big pickup. Rivera believes Dickson will be a perfect complement to Olsen when the Panthers go to two-receiver sets because it will create mismatches. It worked in 2011. Olsen and Shockey combined for 82 receptions for 995 yards and nine touchdowns that season -- Cam Newtons first at quarterback. The Panthers didnt re-sign Shockey in 2012, instead adding Hartsock to the mix. Hartsock didnt catch a pass last seasoon.dddddddddddd. Olsen, however, had a career season with a team-high 73 receptions for 816 yards and six touchdowns. "We are trying to do those things that we did when we were first here," said Rivera, who is entering his fourth season with the Panthers. "Last year Olsen led us in receptions, so what can we do if we have another vertical threat tight end?" Dickson signed a one-year deal with the Panthers in part because he could play with Newton and Olsen. "It was an easy decision for me," Dickson said. Carolina also added free agent tight end Mike McNeill, who is primarily a blocker, to go along with young prospects Brandon Williams and D.C. Jefferson. Rivera said earlier in camp that tight end could be the toughest position on the team to make cuts this summer. "We have five tight ends we really like," Rivera said. The Panthers are also hoping the tight end position eases some of the pain of parting ways with their top four wide receivers this off-season. Carolina released Steve Smith, the franchises career leader in receptions, yards receiving and touchdowns, and allowed Brandon LaFell, Ted Ginn Jr. and Domenik Hixon to leave via free agency. Carolina added free agents Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood and drafted Kelvin Benjamin from Florida State, but the group has been an easy target for critics who feel the team didnt do enough to restock and doesnt have a legitimate No. 1 receiver. "Its kind of been the story line of the off-season," Olsen said. "Any time the Panthers have come up thats kind of been the first comment made by everybody. I think guys are just kind of tired of it. I think we feel confident about our group." Trebuie să fii logat sau înregistrat pentru a vedea acest link. Trebuie să fii logat sau înregistrat pentru a vedea acest link.
