Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere is spending his summer rehabbing from offseason hip and abdominal surgery, while preparing for his sophomore NHL season and for World Cup of Hockey training camp as a member of Team North America. Cheap Air Max 97 Yellow .The 23-year-old blueliner enjoyed a successful rookie season in 2015-16. He registered 17 goals and 29 assists for 46 points in 64 games. His 17 goals set a franchise record for rookie defensemen. He also went on a 15-game scoring tear, which is the longest such streak by a rookie defenseman in NHL history.Gostisbehere was also a major reason the Flyers reached the Stanley Cup playoffs, and he proved he could compete at a high level and have consistent success in the NHL. After his surgery, hes feeling better and ready to go for the upcoming season.He sat down recently with ESPN.com to talk about the latest events in his life:ESPN.com: How are you feeling since your offseason surgery?Shayne Gostisbehere: Its good. Its been about [11 weeks], so its been going well. Its not as bad as the major knee surgery I had [after tearing an ACL on Nov. 7, 2014], and this is nothing compared to that. Its going well, and Ive been back on the ice the last couple of weeks, so it feels good.ESPN.com: Will you be ready for World Cup of Hockey training camp?Gostisbehere: Oh, yeah. Absolutely.ESPN.com: What did it mean to you to be added to the roster for Team North America?Gostisbehere: Its just a tremendous honor. When you look at some of those names on that roster, and youre on it, as well, its humbling, for sure. Just to be associated with some of those guys is pretty sweet. Being part of this World Cup is a tremendous honor, and I thanked all my coaches, my family and everyone who helped me get here.ESPN.com: What do you think of the Team North America roster?Gostisbehere: When you look at our roster, people are probably saying, Holy cow, these guys are going to be pretty good. I think well surprise some guys. But there are [great] players with all the different countries, and its just cool to see the different dynamic of the World Cup with Team Europe and Team North America, and being part of the young guys team, its pretty cool to see.ESPN.com: Whats the rallying cry for the young guns?Gostisbehere: Our attitude right away is going to be, Hey, we can play with these guys. Of course, we do it in the NHL, so why cant we do it in this tournament? I actually really do think were going to shock some teams there.ESPN.com: Whats your relationship like with some of your Team North America teammates, including Connor McDavid?Gostisbehere: I met McDavid in Las Vegas for the [NHL] awards. Hes a very levelheaded kid for all the stuff going on around him, being the face of the league soon enough. Its cool to see how levelheaded he is. I played with Seth Jones and Jacob Trouba on the [U.S.] World Junior team, so itll be good to see those guys and catch up with them. Itll be fun.ESPN.com: You finished second behind Artemi Panarin for the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year. Now that youve had time to reflect on your rookie season, how would you describe it?Gostisbehere: If someone told me that I would have that type of season, I would look at them like theyre crazy. But it was a lot of hard work, and everything that went into my rehab for my knee and everything, its just a compliment to everyone that helped me get there. It was a great season. You look back on it now and say, Holy cow, what am I going to do to duplicate that? Its about putting in more hard work this summer and battling through injuries and rehab. Again, its more maintenance than anything, so Im just gearing up for another good year.ESPN.com: Besides the rehab from the surgery, what has the offseason been like?Gostisbehere: Ive been relaxing. My girlfriend, she lives in Connecticut, so I get up there and get away from the city life of Philly. I like it. Its enjoyable. I just hang out with my two puppies, go on walks and hang by the pool and get down to the shore, if I can. Its more about relaxing and taking care of the body, clean eating and just gearing up to build the body up to break it back down.ESPN.com: During the playoffs, Flyers team owner and hockey icon Ed Snider passed away. What did you learn about the organization and how people rallied to support one another during a tough time?Gostisbehere: To see the loss of Mr. Snider, and he is not only the Philadelphia Flyers, he is the city of Philadelphia. He brought [pro] sports here, and to see such an icon of the game go down like that is hard to see. But the way our organization, not only our organization, but the city of Philadelphia and how they rallied and we paid our respects to Mr. Snider [was impressive]. Im sure he was happy that day we made the playoffs. It was a special moment for us, but to see everyone come together during a tragic time for us, and to see what he actually did for Philadelphia as more and more things come out about him, it was truly great to see, and well surely miss him.ESPN.com: The season ended with a first-round exit to the Washington Capitals, but how much can the Flyers gain from that experience moving forward?Gostisbehere: Yeah, we definitely set our goals to make the playoffs and do some damage, and making the playoffs was a big step for us. And we were not happy with our first-round exit, but its a great stepping stone for this upcoming season. Weve got a great group of guys here and some great additions, so were excited, and well be ready to go and well know what to expect this upcoming year.Cheap Air Max 97 All Red .

Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, enters the finale with a chance to equal Michael Schumachers 13 victories in a year and match the record of nine consecutive wins by Alberto Ascari in the 1952 and 1953 seasons. SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- After going nearly a year between NFL starts, it would have been expected for Colin Kaepernick to come out a little rusty and then find his stride as the game progressed.Instead, Kaepernicks 2016 starting debut went almost the opposite way.Kaepernick had a promising first half that included a long touchdown pass to Torrey Smith and two other scoring drives before he and the San Francisco 49ers fell flat after halftime in a 45-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.We had good moments, we had some we need to correct, Kaepernick said Tuesday. I know personally there were throws I should have made and I want to make and I need to correct those this week. We have opportunities out there. We have to take advantage of those when they present themselves to us. That will allow us to put a lot more points on the board.Kaepernick went 8-for-11 for 135 yards in the first half against the Bills, keeping the Niners (1-5) right in the game despite missing a potential early touchdown pass when he overthrew Smith in the end zone on the opening drive.But he was unable to carry that over to the second half as he completed just 5 of 18 passes for 52 yards and took three sacks.Its not just him, offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins said. You say its his numbers, but its our numbers. Sometimes its a drop here or there in critical situations affect those numbers. A penalty here or there and all of a sudden were off the field and that affects the numbers. Weve got to do better around him and that helps his numbers.He was hurt by a pair of dropped passes, a defense that struggled to get off the field and an offensive line that was overmatched at times. But Kaepernick was far from sharp.His best moments in the second half came on a couple of scrambles, including a 29-yarder and another that turned a possible safety into a 10-yard run for a first down.I thought using my feet was something I did well, he said. There weree a couple of times I wish I would have hung in a little bit more, but those are always split-second decisions. Cheap Air Max 97 Black. aepernick figures to handle those better and to be sharper with a full game of experience in coach Chip Kellys system and a second week of practice with the first-team offense.Kaepernicks practice time was severely limited in the offseason and training camp as he recovered from surgeries on his left shoulder, right thumb and left knee.He then was beaten out by Blaine Gabbert for the starting job and generated far more attention for his ongoing protest during the national anthem than his play on the field.Kaepernick got only a handful of practice plays each week and three late-game snaps for handoffs in Week 1. Now he is tasked with helping turn around a rough season as the Niners have lost five straight games for the first time since 2010.But Kaepernick has enough experience to know that forcing things will only make the situation worse.You have to allow the plays to come to you, he said. When that opportunity is there to make one, you have to make it. But you cant force yourself into making a play.Game notes RB Carlos Hyde had a sling on his right shoulder and didnt practice. ... CB Rashard Robinson (concussion) also missed practice. ... CB Jimmie Ward returned to practice after missing three games with a quadriceps injury. ... The Niners opened the 21-day practice window for rookie CB Will Redmond, who missed the start of the season recovering from ACL surgery. Redmond is eligible to play Nov. 6 against New Orleans and must be added to the 53-man roster the following week or be placed on season-ending IR. ... The Niners signed WR DeAndre Smelter to the practice squad and released WR Dres Anderson.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
