Winnipeg Goldeyes manager Rick Forney announced on Tuesday the signing of left-handed pitcher Brendan Lafferty to a contract for the 2014 season. Michael Dickson Jersey . Lafferty, 27, set a Goldeyes record last season by appearing in 53 games out of the bullpen, which passed Brian Beunings 51 appearances in 2008. The product of Riverside, Calif. went 5-2 with a 3.49 ERA in 49 innings of work and posted 50 strikeouts. "Were really thrilled to have him back," Forney said. "I was really excited to get him last year and he certainly was as good as we hoped he would be. He really is a durable, reliable type guy that likes to pitch every day. Thats an important ingredient when youre trying to put your bullpen together because our rosters are so small. Having him back in the fold certainly makes us better down there in the bullpen." Lafferty tied with Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks pitcher Joe Harris for the most appearances by a pitcher in the American Association last season. Lafferty and teammate Chris Kissock combined to make 103 appearances out of the bullpen, which was the most by any duo in the league. Prior to joining the Goldeyes for the 2013 season, Lafferty played four seasons in the Kansas City Royals system after being drafted by the Royals in the 18th round of the 2009 MLB amateur draft. He played with Double-A Northwest Arkansas of the Texas League in 2011 and 2012. He was a Rule 5 pick of the Philadelphia Phillies following the 2012 season, but was released during spring training. The Goldeyes now have four players signed for the 2014 season, including three pitchers and one position player. Will Dissly Seahawks Jersey . To be fair, the celebrations are already anything but tame. Nerf ball tricks shots are just the tip of the iceberg for a group that has performed in zero gravity, faced pro-skateboarder Rob Dyrdek and an assembled team on the MTV series "Fantasy Factory", and even hit a basketball trick shot from a passing blimp.

Erik Cole scored on a breakaway with 4:49 to play, and the Stars rallied to defeat the Minnesota Wild 4-3 on Saturday night. ST. LOUIS -- The Dallas Stars are trying to make a late playoff push. Against a team battling for first place overall in the league, the Stars stepped up their game. Colton Sceviour got the first two goals and Antoine Roussel scored on a breakaway in the third period to give the Stars a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night. "This was a huge test for us," goalie Kari Lehtonen said. "One of the best teams in the league and we played last night and travelled here late, and showed up, and it was just a huge win." Cody Eakin had a goal and assist and Lehtonen made 33 saves for the Stars, who have won four of five in pursuit of a Western Conference playoff spot. Dallas entered the day three points out of a playoff spot before winning for the second straight night and saddling the Blues with just their sixth regulation home loss. The Stars opened a five-game trip after beating the Predators 7-3 on Friday and won without production from their top line of Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn and Valeri Nichushkin. "I dont know if desperation is the word. That kind of sounds bad," Sceviour said. "But definitely we feel like these are games we need to win. "This is a start and we want to build off it." Alex Steen had a pair of power-play goals for the Blues, who had been 8-0-2 in their previous 10 at home including an overtime loss to Dallas earlier this month. St. Louis fell one point behind Boston for first place overall in the NHL after a showing coach Ken Hitchcock labeled "sloppy." "What we are right now is too inconsistent," Hitchcock said. "Weve got too many players who are having good games and then are following it up with poor games." "Have to send a few messages here in the next couple games and see if we can get everybodys attention." Dallas led 1-0 and 3-1 against the Central Division leaders. Roussel skated in alone on Ryan Miller for the clincher after the puck hopped over ddefenceman Kevin Shattenkirks stick at the opposite blue line at 7:56 of the third. Sebastian Janikowski Jersey. If the Blues had been ahead, Shattenkirk would not have been trying to hold the line. "We feel like wed been all over them in the third period, then they get the fourth one," Steen said. "We were a little late tonight." Steen has 33 goals on the season. He scored on a deflection from the high slot in the second period and beat Lehtonen scrambling across the net on a long rebound in the opening minute of the third, each time shaving the deficit to one. Sceviour has three goals the past two games and Eakin also has scored in consecutive games for the Stars. Hitchcock picked a trio of former Stars -- Steve Ott, Brenden Morrow and Derek Roy -- for the opening faceoff. That line surrendered the only goal of the first period, with Otts turnover leading to Sceviours sixth of the season, and finished a combined minus-5. Sceviour tapped in a rebound off his skate to make it 2-0 at 7:21 of the second. "Theyre not the prettiest goals, but well take them," Sceviour said. Dallas needed just 25 seconds to answer Steens first goal on Eakins deflection.
