Nine players on three NHL teams have contracted mumps this season, an unexpected outbreak that the league and the players association are trying to contain.Ryan Suter recently joined Minnesota Wild teammates Keith Ballard, Marco Scandella, Jonas Brodin and Christian Folin, Corey Perry, Clayton Stoner and Francois Beauchemin of the Anaheim Ducks and Tanner Glass of the New York Rangers to be diagnosed with the disease.Those infected with mumps can have a fever, headaches, muscle aches, fatigue and loss of appetite, followed by the swelling of salivary glands, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the league has been in contact with team doctors and training staffs about best practices to prevent the spread of mumps, which has caught everyone off guard.It is certainly an outbreak that was unexpected and has caused unwanted disruption at the team level, but it is not something we have any significant control over, Daly said. As long as our clubs are doing what they need to do to minimize risk of contraction, we are hopeful that the wave of cases will run their course and life will return to normal in the relatively near term.Nine out of some 600 players getting the mumps is not a full-fledged epidemic, but the lack of familiarity about mumps has made it a talking point around the league. As Wild star Zach Parise joked to the Star-Tribute in Minneapolis: What is this, the Oregon Trail? Where are we right now? Every team seems to get the flu once a year, but the mumps?When Perry and Beauchemin were ill and eventually tests showed they had mumps, the NHL/NHLPA joint health and safety committee began working with teams to prevent further spread.The NHLPA has been actively educating the players regarding the recent outbreak, while providing best practices on how to avoid contracting and spreading mumps, spokesman Jonathan Weatherdon said.The mumps virus is spread through saliva or mucus, usually from coughing, sneezing or talking, according to the CDC. Sharing drinks and utensils can also contribute to spreading the infection.Its something were aware of, Vancouver Canucks NHLPA representative Kevin Bieksa said. The PAs addressed it, weve sent out a couple emails with some of the symptoms and some of the warning signs. Most of us have been vaccinated, so were doing whatever we can to prevent it.The Canucks arent the only ones taking precautions. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault told reporters that his team would be getting booster shots after they found out Glass had the mumps.According to the Winnipeg Free Press, the Jets have told their players not to share water bottles or towels and have been disinfecting dressing rooms when on the road.The first mumps vaccine was licensed in the United States in 1967, according to the CDC. The measles-mumps-rubella vaccine began to be administered in Canada in the early 1970s, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada.Originally, one dose of the MMR vaccine was administered to a child aged between 12 and 15 months. In 1989, several health agencies recommended the vaccine be increased to two doses, the second given between ages 4 and 6.The CDC says two doses of the vaccine are 88 per cent effective at preventing mumps, while one dose is 78 per cent effective.Theres no one common theme to the spread of mumps in the NHL, as the nine players range in age from 21 to 34 and are of three different nationalities. Suter (born in 1985) and Ballard (1982) are American; Perry (1985), Beauchemin (1980), Stoner (1985), Scandella (1990) and Glass (1983) are Canadian; while Brodin (1993) and Folin (1991) are Swedish.Even though he got vaccinated, Bieksa acknowledged being taken aback by news that mumps is going around.Obviously when theres a little bit of a small epidemic in the league, you kind of get concerned, he said. We played a lot of those teams (like) Anaheim, when they were going through it.Each new case brings more conversation about the mumps virus. Bieksa knew about the cases with the Ducks and Wild but hadnt heard of Glass getting it.Told the league couldnt anticipate this outbreak, Bieksa said: And rightfully so. Who would expect us to have the mumps?---A look at the NHL players who have contracted mumps and how many games they missed:Keith Ballard, Wild: 8 gamesJonas Brodin, Wild: 7 gamesChristian Folin, Wild: 5 gamesCorey Perry, Ducks: 5 gamesFrancois Beauchemin, Ducks: 5 gamesClayton Stoner, Ducks: 5 games Tanner Glass, Rangers: 3 gamesRyan Suter, Wild: 2 games (Ongoing absence)Marco Scandella, Wild: 2 games---Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Ahkello Witherspoon Youth Jersey . -- The Atlanta Braves are facing the possibility of losing another pitcher for the season after general manager Frank Wren said Saturday that Cory Gearrin has a serious injury to his right elbow. C. J. Beathard Womens Jersey . Luke Wileman and I stood in the corridor outside of the Vancouver Whitecaps dressing room at BC Place in Vancouver. http://www.officialauthenticsf49ersonline.com/AUTHENTIC-JOE-WILLIAMS-49ERS-JERSEY/. Cilic cruised to victory, beating the seventh-seeded Seppi 6-1, 6-3 in just 72 minutes. He faced only one break point, winning 24 out of 29 points played on the first serve. Solomon Thomas Jersey . Hamilton signed offensive linemen Mike Filer, Joel Reinders, Landon Rice and Carson Rockhill. Reuben Foster Jersey .C. -- Unable to get much lift off his sore right ankle, Bobcats centre Al Jefferson figured it was time to make an adjustment.6) If youre a sports fan living in Toronto or Winnipeg, are you thinking things couldnt be worse anywhere else? Well, they probably can...in the other place. While Torontonians saw the Leafs, Argos and TFC suffer a losing weekend, the Winnipeg headlines referred to the Blue Bombers worst season since 1930 and offered the idea that the Jets season had already gone "sideways", after only five games.7) On the other hand, did you realize that the combined record of the Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators and Vancouver Canucks is 12-3? So Canadas three best teams compare nicely with Californias three teams - LA, Anaheim and San Jose are 13-3-2. Well, their records compare favourably. Cool Are you big on hockeys plus-minus statistics? Ponder this - two of the NHLs worst minus players so far are Rene Bourque and Lars Eller of the Montreal Canadiens, who have won five of their first six games.9) Who is Travis Ishikawa? You know him as the San Francisco Giants NLCS hero, the guy who hit the three-run homer that put the Giants into the World Series against Kansas City. However, you dont really know Ishikawa unless you see a list of his former minor-league teams and realize that Travis Ishikawa is the epitome of the baseball dream.In addition to major league stops in San Francisco (twice), Milwaukee, Baltimore, New York (Yankees) and Pittsburgh, Ishikawa has played for the Salem-Keizer Volcanos, Hagerstown Suns, Connecticut Defenders, Scottsdale Scorpions, Fresno Grizzlies, Norfolk Tides and Charlotte Knights. In April of this year, he played for none of those teams. He was an unemployed minor-league free agent. 10) It may or may not be a big deal that the KC Royals have home-field advantage in the World Series, but it is theirs because of the American Leagues 5-3 win over the National League in the All-Star game. What do you remember about that game? Not much, right? Ah, but what if I mention the names of Adam Wainwright and Derek Jeter? Now, it comes back - the controversy created by Wainwrights admission that he grooved a pitch that Jeter, in his farewell All-Star appearance, smacked for a double in a three-run first inning. It was actually suggested that the result of the game should not count, and that the World Series should open in the park of the team with the best regular-season record. That would have been Kansas City, so never mind the fuss...I guess.11) How many members of the Royals and the Giants were chosen as starters for that 2014 MLB All-Star game in Minnesota? And, of course, the answer is...none.12) World Series managers Bruce Bochy of San Francisco and Ned Yost of Kansas City dont really look alike, but they seem alike. Theyre both former catchers who appear studiously calm during a game. They answer questions with a politeness that suggests there need not be too many of them if theyre meant to bring colourful answers. The difference between Bochy and Yost is that Bochy is bidding for his third World Series ring, and the two hes got make him the most successful manager of these times. The only other currentt manager with two? Terry Francona of Cleveland, whose rings are adorned with a Red Sox logo.dddddddddddd13) As you watch the World Series, with the Giants employing a designated hitter in the first two games and the Royals pitchers batting in the next two, ask yourself the following question: "Is there anything dumber than a pro sports championship series that includes two sets of rules based on a games location, and is there a chance the next baseball commissioner will be bold enough to call for one set of rules - DH or no DH - that would apply to both leagues"?14) The next time you watch Steven Stamkos or John Tavares, ask yourself this question: "Did Canada really win Olympic gold in Sochi without Stamkos and Tavares, and with Sidney Crosby scoring one goal?"15) What is the end result of the Oscar Pistorius trial that seemed to last forever? It is that Pistorius may end up serving a 10-month jail sentence before his punishment reverts to house arrest. In that event, Pistorius would spend only three months longer in jail than he did in a South African courtroom trying to avoid jail.16) The Florida Panthers owners say they are "100 per cent convinced" that a market for NHL hockey exists in South Florida. Im not sure you can be "95 per cent convinced", but Id pick a number lower than 100, wouldnt you?17) Its a long story, and the only sad one connected to the Kansas City Royals appearance in the 2014 World Series. Frank White is an all-time Royal whose ties to the teams history are even greater than George Bretts, but White and the Royals had a major falling-out that made him declare he would never be seen at Kauffman Stadium again.He has broken that vow to sit in the stands a few times recently. It wont happen, but surely it should - wouldnt a ceremonial first pitch thrown by Frank White, with Brett alongside, be a perfect way to celebrate the moment?1Cool Do you know how bad the Cincinnati Bengals were in the first half of their 27-0 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday? They gained 27 yards, thats how bad. Thats less than a yard per minute. And it could get worse when the Bengals play at home this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, who are playing a lot better now than when they dropped their season opener at home to the Bengals. Ravens seek revenge, and may have no trouble finding it. 19) Should a goalie win the Hart Trophy? To each his/her own on this one, but my answer would be: Not unless the year is 1997 or 1998 and his name is Dominik Hasek. The standard of goaltending excellence and value to his team set by Hasek in Buffalo has not been equalled since, which is a polite way of disagreeing with the choice of Jose Theodore in 2002. Hasek will be honoured in Buffalo on January 13, and again to be polite, that will be the hilite of the Sabres current season.20) To fully enjoy the start of the 2014 World Series, can we all agree that Terry Cashman still has the best way of "Talkin Baseball"? Some of us have been singing this for more than 30 years.
