Astros startede deres offseason med et dristig strejke, hvor de blev enige om at gen-signere essen Justin Wieland. Fansene håber især, at Justin Wieland vil fortsætte spillet i Houston Astros trøje. Ifølge rapporter er dette et to-årigt depositum til en værdi af 500.000 USD, som inkluderer en løn på endda 250.000 USD for de næste to sæsoner, og giver Wieland mulighed for at fravælge efter 2022.
På grund af en albueskade, der kræver Tommy John-operation i september 2020, har Wieland kun spillet én gang i de seneste to år. Da vi så ham gå helt ud for sidste gang, var 2011 AL MVP lige så god som nogensinde. Han slog 223 runder af 2,58 ERA i 2019, vandt den anden Cy Young Award i sin karriere og hjalp Houston med at vinde vimpelen. MLB Baseball tøj
Uanset hvor Astros går hen, minder Wieland om, at Correas gratis agentur ikke markerer afslutningen på klubbens konkurrence.
FIRST STAR – LEON DRAISAITL, C, EDMONTON OILERSDraisaitl paced the NHL in goals (15), points (27), power-play goals (8), power-play points (11) and game-winning goals (4) across 13 appearances to propel the Oilers (15-5-0, 30 points) to a 9-4-0 November. Draisaitl found the scoresheet in 10 of his 13 outings, highlighted by nine multi-point performances. Six of those featured at least three points, including a run of three straight games to open the month (Nov. 1-5: 5-5-10) as well as a four-point effort Nov. 24 at ARI (2-2-4). The latter gave Draisaitl 20-20-40 in 2021-22, making him the seventh different player in League history – and first since Mario Lemieux in 1995-96 (w/ PIT) – to record at least 20 goals and 20 assists within his first 20 games of a season. The 26-year-old Cologne, Germany, native and 2019-20 Hart Memorial Trophy, Ted Lindsay Award and Art Ross Trophy winner has played in 20 total contests this season, topping the NHL in goals (20), points (40), power-play goals (10) and game-winning goals (6). He also ranks among the League leaders in power-play points (2nd; 16), assists (t-2nd; 20), shooting percentage (4th; 28.6%) and plus/minus (t 9th; +14). SECOND STAR – JACK CAMPBELL, G, TORONTO MAPLE LEAFSCampbell went 9-2-0 in 11 appearances, leading all goaltenders (minimum: 6 GP) in wins (9), goals-against average (1.27), save percentage (.959) and shutouts (t-3) to help the Maple Leafs (16-6-1, 33 points) complete a 12-2-0 November (24 points) – their most wins and points in a calendar month in franchise history. Campbell yielded two or fewer goals in 10 of his 11 starts, highlighted by shutouts Nov. 2 vs. VGK (26 SV), Nov. 10 at PHI (36 SV) and Nov. 16 vs. NSH (24 SV) – his 100th NHL appearance. He also posted 30 or more saves in five of his outings, including a season-high 42 stops Nov. 6 vs. BOS (5-2 W). The 29-year-old Port Huron, Mich., native has played in 18 total games this season, pacing netminders (minimum: 6 GP) in wins (t-12), goals-against average (1.64) and save percentage (.946). His three shutouts in 2021-22, which already are a career high, also are tied for second place in the League – behind only Calgary’s Jacob Markstrom (5). THIRD STAR – NAZEM KADRI, C, COLORADO AVALANCHEKadri topped the NHL with 2.10 points per game (4-17-21 in 10 GP), leading all players in assists (17) while ranking second in power-play assists (t-7) and third in both overall points (21) and power-play points (9) to guide the Avalanche (11-6-1, 23 points) to a 7-2-1 November. Kadri collected points in all but one of his 10 appearances to become the first Colorado player to average 2.00 points per game in a calendar month (minimum: 5 GP) since Joe Sakic in March 2000 (15-11-26 in 13 GP). Kadri, who registered seven multi-point performances as well as four outings with at least three points, also posted four straight games with multiple assists (Nov. 13-22: 3-9-12) – the longest such run by an Avalanche player since Peter Forsberg from Feb. 17-23, 2001 (5-9-14 in 4 GP). The 31-year-old London, Ont., native has skated in 18 total contests this season, placing among the League leaders in assists (t-2nd; 20), points (4th; 27), power-play points (6th; 10) and power-play assists (t-8th; 7).Lasten NHL Pelipaidat
