Stars Acquire Taylor Fedun From Sabres

By Reid Urban

The Dallas Stars have gone out on the trade market to get some defensive depth.

Today, the team announced that it has acquired defenseman Taylor Fedun from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for a conditional 2020 seventh-round pick.

That pick will only happen if Fedun plays 25 or more games with Dallas this season. So far, he’s only played nine games and all with Buffalo’s AHL affiliate, the Rochester Americans. He has five assists with them. As for right now, he will remain at the AHL level, having been assigned to the AHL Texas Stars.

For the past five seasons, he’s bounced around a lot at the NHL level, having played in 46 games between the Oilers, Sharks, Canucks, and Sabres. His overall numbers are two goals and 13 assists, while averaging 14:08 per night on the ice. He’s also in the final deal of a two-year, two-way deal that pays him the league minimum at $650K at the NHL level and $300K in the AHL.

This move was necessary for Dallas, since they needed depth at the back end. They’ve had multiple injuries to players like Connor Carrick, John Klingberg, Stephen Johns, and Marc Methot. With that, it’s very likely that Fedun could be called upon if the injuries continue to mount.

New Era Cap × Nautica

Today, New Era Cap Co. Inc. announces the launch of its first ever collaboration with classic American sportswear brand, Nautica®. Anchoring the New Era X Nautica Collections are limited-edition “one of one” hats created from deconstructed vintage Nautica jackets. Each hat is unique and features elements from the jacket including patches, labels, pockets and hardware. As part of the collaboration, more extensive collections will be created featuring bold graphics inspired by Nautica’s classic Hydro Race, Scuba, and Color Block Jackets.

“The New Era X Nautica Collections are one of the most exciting partnerships of the season,” says Christina McAdam, Lifestyle Product Director for New Era Cap. “The approach is both innovative and breathtaking; together, we have united the vintage history of Nautica with the contemporary cultural style of New Era Cap. It’s an exciting, fashion-forward partnership.”

“We are excited to collaborate with the New Era team on this limited-edition capsule collection,” said Steve McSween, VP of Global Design at Nautica. “Our teams selected unique relics from our Nautica archive and New Era created fresh, collectible pieces. I’m excited that this partnership produced true one of a kind hats that celebrate our two iconic brands.”

The Path to the Cap Starring D’Angelo Russell

New Era Cap Premieres “The Path to the Cap”

Starring NBA Superstar D’Angelo Russell

A film celebrating the New Era Cap NBA Authentics: Draft Series Collection

June 19, 2018, Buffalo, New York – On the week of the NBA Draft, New Era Cap Co. presents “The Path to the Cap”: a never-before-seen exploration of NBA superstar and 2015 NBA Draft second overall pick D’Angelo Russell’s journey from neighborhood baller to NBA professional athlete. Produced by the international sports and lifestyle brand, the film celebrates the moment Russell donned his new team’s hat – a symbol of success after a young lifetimes’ worth of perseverance and hard work. This year, 60 potential stars will make that same leap, and each draftee will mark their moment in a cap from New Era’s NBA Authentics: Draft Series Collection.

Many will watch as the athletes put on their hats, but few know what the true path to the cap entails – which is why New Era Cap Co. travels back to Russell’s roots in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky tracing his NBA success story to its origin point. Candid interviews with his parents and two brothers give a behind-the-scenes look at what drove Russell, including a previously unseen sibling rivalry that spawned his competitive spirit.

“The feeling of getting drafted and putting on that team hat was something I dreamed about forever. I worked my entire life to put on that cap,” said Russell. “It is an incredible honor to have worked alongside New Era to tell the story of how I got to that moment, and I’m excited for every player in this year’s draft class to realize that same dream.”

“The Path to the Cap” celebrates New Era’s ongoing partnership with the league around the NBA Draft. In 2018, the brand introduces new editions of the emblematic lids; in addition to individual team logos and colorways, each hat in the collection features a series of unique design elements, featuring custom patches and pins that pay homage to the local city neighborhoods that host the NBA’s 30 teams.

“The NBA Authentics: Draft Series collection is New Era Cap’s most exciting NBA collection to date,” said Mark Maidment, Senior Vice President, Brand at New Era Cap. “We wanted to create visual representations of the excitement these young men will feel for their new homes and fan families. The cap marks the end of their first path and the beginning of the next: the opportunity to represent each of these cities come opening night.”

YUNGBLUD

UK recording artist Yungblud, whom NME has said carries himself like “a hyper-addictive mix between rapper Eminem and Johnny Rotten,” releases his self-titled debut EP today via all digital partners. Listen to Yungblud HERE.

With his frenetic take on alt-pop equally inspired by punk, hip-hop, and UK garage, Yungblud uses breakneck flow and tongue-in-cheek attitude to deliver pointed lyrics about everything from gentrification to disenfranchisement to addiction without getting heavy-handed. “I want my music to always have a message, but I don’t want to preach to anybody,” says the Northern England native, whose given name is Dominic Harrison. “This music’s just an outburst of emotion and anger, and everything else going on in my head.”

The Yorkshire-born, London-based Yungblud, produced by Matt Schwartz – known for his work on Massive Attack and Kylie Minogue, and brought to Geffen/Interscope by executive producer Martin Terefe who has worked with Jason Mraz and KT Tunstall.

The EP features “King Charles” and “Tin Pan Boy” (which Wonderland called “a bold and biting call to social justice”) and the current single “I Love You, Will You Marry Me,” which takes its title from a real-life, ill-fated marriage proposal spray-painted at a public housing project in South Yorkshire. Watch the live performance video for “ILYWYMM” HEREand the self-directed video for “Tin Pan Boy” HERE. The EP also includes two brand-new songs, “Anarchist” and “Polygraph Eyes,” a seedy portrait of a Saturday night out that also serves as a delicate commentary on consent and “lad mentality.”

In a recent profile of Yungblud, Wonderland raves about his “captivating songwriting,” while Nylon notes that “Harrison imbues every ounce of raucous energy into songs that defy genre.” NME has called him “utterly thrilling” and says that “what makes Yungblud so intriguing is the versatility in his material already, and how confident he feels about pulling it all off.”

Yungblud, who is on the road in Europe through early February, hits the road for a U.S. spring tour with K.Flay beginning March 12 in Washington, DC. “If you ever get the chance to see him perform live, his passion is evident in the way he throws himself around the stage, spitting ferocious lyrics at the front row and strutting around with the confidence you only have if you were born to do something,” writes Wonderland
