Pats add Myers to practice squad

The Patriots added tight end Rob Myers to the practice squad Tuesday. The 23-year-old out of Utah State was a rookie who was  originally signed by the Jets in April. He was waived by the Jets prior to the start of training camp and then signed with the Eagles in August. Myers spent two weeks on the Philadelphia practice squad after being waived by the Eagles prior to the start of the regular season. He had a few calls and a few tryouts — including stops with Green Bay and Cleveland — but he made the trip to Foxboro over the weekend for a Monday tryout.

 

“I’m excited,” said the 6-foot-4, 240-pounder. “I’ve just been living back in Houston. I got released from Philly four weeks ago, so I’ve just been working out by myself and doing all that stuff. I had a couple of tryouts, so it’s finally nice to be somewhere.”

U.S. hockey team to be revealed Jan. 1

As expected, USA Hockey announced that it will reveal the 23-man U.S. Olympic team roster during the Jan. 1 NBC broadcast of the Bridgestone Winter Classic between the Bruins and Flyers at Fenway Park. Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas was the only current B's player invited to the Olympic orientation camp Aug. 17-19 in Woodbridge, Ill., but was expected to get some stiff competition from Buffalo's Ryan Miller, Los Angeles' Jonathan Quick and Colorado's Craig Anderson, among others. There are three goalie spots on the roster put together by Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke. The XXI Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver will begin on Feb. 16 and wind up 12 days later with the gold medal game on Feb. 28 during a two-week break in the NHL season.

Kessel cleared to play Tuesday

Toronto Maple Leafs winger Phil Kessel confirmed to reporters following Tuesday morning's pregame skate that he's passed all strength tests on his surgically repaired left shoulder and will play tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Kessel signed a five-year, $27 million contract with the Leafs after a September trade from the Bruins for a pair of first-round draft picks and a second-round choice, but had missed the first month of the season while rehabbing from offseason rotator cuff and labrum surgery. Kessel led the Bruins last season with 36 goals in 70 games but was dealt to the Leafs after nearly nonexistent negotiations between B's management and the restricted free agent last summer. With the Bruins struggling offensively and the Leafs hitting rock-bottom in October, there are going to be a lot of curious eyes cast toward Toronto on Tuesday night. More Kessel breakdown at the...

Lawyer: HS head-butt case 'misplaced'

On Tuesday’s Dennis & Callahan show, the hosts discussed the recent incident involving a local high school football player head-butting an opponent who had lost his helmet.

 

James LaShoto of Arlington Catholic is being charged with assault and battery after hitting Abington’s Daniel Curtin during a game on Sept. 19. Curtin missed 10 days of school and two football games while recovering.

 

No penalty was called on LaShoto as officials did not see the incident (it was away from the ball). LaShoto was suspended two games by Arlington Catholic, and his lawyer, Ronald Martignetti, said the punishment was discussed with Abington High School administrative and team officials before being delivered.

 

Martignetti called into D&C Tuesday to weigh in on the debate.

 

Said Martignetti: "I don’t think that this matter has helped the LaShoto boy — it...
