    MADISON, Wis. [b]Jalen Ramsey Youth Jersey[/b] . -- Bob Suter, a member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic "Miracle On Ice" hockey team, has died of an apparent heart attack at the age of 57. Suters death was confirmed by a spokesman for USA Hockey. The Madison, Wisc., native won a gold medal representing the United States at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, N.Y., and is the father of NHL star defenceman Ryan Suter, who currently plays for the Minnesota Wild. "Its a tough day for our sport, having lost a great friend and ambassador of the game," USA Hockey said in a statement. "Bob Suter will always be remembered for his role as a member of the 1980 Miracle on Ice Team that captivated our country and whose impact is impossible to measure. "His legacy, however, is far beyond that as he dedicated his life to advancing hockey and helping young people achieve their dreams. Bobs positive impact on our sport will be felt for generations to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Suter family at this difficult time." U.S. Olympic teammate Mark Johnson, now womens hockey coach at Wisconsin, said everyone was stunned and shocked to hear the news. "Its a sad day for not only the community of Madison but the hockey community who knew Bob and all of the players who he touched and who he gave an opportunity to play hockey and climb up the ladder," Johnson said in a statement released by the Badgers. "Whether its high school, onto college or onto the professional ranks, he touched a lot of kids and gave them an opportunity." Toronto Maple Leafs star Phil Kessel and sister Amanda expressed their condolences on Twitter. "Today is a very sad day," Phil Kessel wrote. "I lost a great coach friend and mentor. He made me into the player I am today and I will forever be grateful. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Suter family today. I will miss you forever Bob Suter." Amanda wrote that she was "deeply saddened with the news of Bob Suters death. He was such a great guy and friend since I was a little girl. He will be greatly missed." Suter starred at the University of Wisconsin from 1977 to 1979 and has been a fixture in that area beyond his playing career. He opened a sporting goods store in Madison after retiring. "I was extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Bob Suter," Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said in a statement. "The Suter name is synonymous with Badger hockey. Bob did tremendous work in the Madison and UW community to grow the sport of hockey. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Suter family." A seventh-round pick of the Los Angeles Kings in the 1977 NHL draft and a seventh-rounder of the Birmingham Bulls in the 1977 WHA draft, he went on to play 86 games in the Central Hockey League. "Bob was the ultimate teammate," Wisconsin mens hockey coach and college teammate Mike Eaves said in a statement. "He could skate like the wind and was as hard of a competitor that I ever knew. He has passed much too young." Suters brother Gary played 1,145 NHL games with the Flames, Blackhawks and Sharks and was on Calgarys 1989 Stanley Cup team. The Minnesota Wild, who employed Bob Suter as a scout, also released a statement of condolences for his family. "Not only was Bob a great hockey ambassador, he was a terrific person off the ice who will be greatly missed by all of us," the team said. Ryan Suter represented the U.S. at the Sochi Olympics 34 years after his father won a gold medal in Lake Placid. [b]Yannick Ngakoue Womens Jersey[/b] .

[b]Quincy Williams II Womens Jersey[/b] . - Skiing far more aggressively than in her season debut a day earlier, Lindsey Vonn was in provisional 10th place after the first 45 skiers in a World Cup downhill on Saturday.BALTIMORE -- Every once in a while, Chris Davis conjures memories of last season by effortlessly launching a baseball far over the outfield wall. Davis interrupted his frustrating season with such a moment Saturday, hitting a two-run homer off knuckleballer R.A. Dickey to carry the Baltimore Orioles past the skidding Toronto Blue Jays 3-2. Davis batted .286 with 53 home runs and 138 RBIs last year. This season, hes at .228 with 11 long balls and 33 RBIs. His work ethic, however, remains the same. "Theres no change in my approach. Ive been doing everything I can to try to get back to feeling good in the box," Davis said. "I felt the last couple of days Ive started to click a little bit. Didnt have a lot to show for it." Davis ended an 0-for-9 drought with a drive that put the Orioles up 3-1 in the fifth. "Big home run for the team in the situation, and the individual," teammate Adam Jones said. "Hes been grinding it out." Orioles starter Bud Norris (6-5) gave up one run and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings to win his third straight start. The right-hander extended an impressive run by Orioles starters, who have allowed two runs or fewer in 13 of the last 16 games. "Were all out there to help each other and get better," Norris said. "Right now were kind of cruising." After Toronto closed to 3-2 in the eighth, Zach Britton got three outs for his seventh save. Brett Lawrie had two hits and an RBI for the Blue Jays, who have lost six of eight. The AL East leaders have scored only six runs in those six defeats. "I thought we had pretty good ABs for the most part," catcher Josh Thole said. "Its tough when youre not getting guys in." Dickey (6-5) left with right groin tightness after allowing three runs, two earned, and six hits in 6 2-3 innings. It was the first time this season hes taken a loss when permitting as few as three runs. Dickey felt a twinge after getting Manny Machado out, then left after taking a practice pitch. "I didnt want to jeopardize my next start," Dickey said. "I was probably out of the game after that next batter, anyway. I decided it was probably in everybodys best interest to just call it a day." Toronto nearly got Dickey off the hook. [b]Taven Bryan Womens Jersey[/b]. In the seventh, Orioles reliever Darren ODay retired Melky Cabrera on a grounder with two outs and two on. One inning later, Jose Bautista was thrown out in a very close play at the plate while trying to score on a double by Edwin Encarnacion. Left fielder Nelson Cruz retrieved the ball and threw to shortstop J.J. Hardy, who fired the relay to catcher Nick Hundley. "The big play in the game was obviously the relay throw," Davis said. "That was a big hit for Encarnacion and a chance for them to get back into the game and get really good momentum in their dugout." Lawrie followed with an RBI single. The Blue Jays stranded nine and went 1 for 6 with runners in scoring position. "This has been a tough run here so we need to hopefully regroup," Thole said. "Were playing behind every night." With the score 1-all in the fifth, Jones hit a grounder to third. The throw by Juan Francisco bounced past first base, and Jones lightly pushed umpire Hunter Wendelstedt while rounding the bag. The umpire toppled backward onto the infield dirt but was not hurt. Davis followed by hitting a 1-0 pitch over the centre field wall and into the Baltimore bullpen. "We got burned by the home run ball," Toronto manager John Gibbons said. Earlier, Dickey got into trouble in the first inning when Nick Markakis led off with an infield hit and Machado doubled. But Jones, Davis and Cruz followed with popups. In the Toronto second, Norris hit Lawrie with a pitch before walking Thole with the bases loaded. Baltimore tied it in the fourth when Hundley delivered a sacrifice fly following singles by Delmon Young and Ryan Flaherty. NOTES: Toronto DH Adam Lind left with a bruised right foot. ... The Blue Jays activated RHP Sergio Santos (right elbow) from the DL and optioned OF Darin Mastroianni to Triple-A Buffalo.
