Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Goal­tend­ing com­pe­ti­tions are front and cen­ter as pre­tour­na­ment camps open for the start of the World Cup of Hockey on Sept. 17, and that in­cludes the one be­tween starter Carey Price of the Mon­treal Cana­di­ens and Braden Holtby of the Wash­ing­ton Cap­i­tals for Team Canada. Price, who hasn’t played a game since Novem­ber be­cause of a knee in­jury, prac­ticed Mon­day in Ot­tawa and is “100 per­cent,” ac­cord­ing to Canada gen­eral man­ager Doug Arm­strong. But Holtby could play Fri­day and Satur­day in ex­hi­bi­tions against the United States, ac­cord­ing to coach Mike Bab­cock. “We’re play­ing back to back right away in ex­hi­bi­tion, so we wouldn’t play a goalie back to back in ex­hi­bi­tion for sure,” Bab­cock said. “So there’s go­ing to be op­por­tu­ni­ties for more than one goal­tender.” (0-2-2). Sopho­more mid­fielder Amar Se­jdic and fresh­man mid­fielder Kee­gan Kelly ( McDonogh) also scored and red­shirt se­nior goal­keeper Cody Nie­der­meier (Broad­neck) had two saves for the Terps, who be­gin Big Ten Con­fer­ence play Fri­day at No. 5 In­di­ana at 7 p.m. FOOT­BALL: Johns Hop­kins ju­nior run­ning back Ryan Cary was named Cen­ten­nial Con­fer­ence co- Of­fen­sive Player of the Week. … Tow­son punter Jake Ry­der was se­lected Colo­nial Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion Spe­cial­ist of the Week.
