First-round draft pick Nikita Scherbak is doing everything he can to crack the Montreal Canadiens roster, but admits its a difficult task for a first-year player. Minkah Fitzpatrick Dolphins Jersey . "Its very hard, a lot of pressure, a lot of people watching, but Im alright right now," Scherbak told reporters after the second day of the Canadiens development camp in Brossard, Quebec. Scherbak said his goal is to make to it to the NHL this season, but ultimately the decision will be left to the coaching staff. "Its hard work and well see," said Scherbak. "I cant say I already know (who will make the roster), its the coaches opinion… Its a big pressure for me, but Im trying to play next season, Ill try everything to make it to the NHL." The 18-year-old acknowledged he has areas of his game he needs to improve on in order to play at the top level. "I play pretty well in the offensive zone, but I need to work on defensive zone and compete level with the puck." The native of Moscow, Russia said his favourite player in the league also hails from his home country. "I think Pavel Datsyuk is my favourite player. When I was young, I watched him every time, he was my favourite." Scherbak, who joined the WHLs Saskatoon Blades last season, said hes been working on his English and has used television to help him improve. "I like SportsCentre, I watched just sports like NHL games, NBA games and everything about sports." Undrafted forward Jiri Sekac has also been given his shot with the Montreal Canadiens and he plans to make the most of it. Speaking to reporters following the second day of the development camp, Sekac told reporters he believes he earned his shot with the team through strong play overseas. "I had a really, really good season (in the KHL), and I think thats the reason why I received so many offers," Sekac said. Sekac added that he had been given roughly 10 offers, but narrowed his list to four top-level teams before signing a two-year entry-level contract with the Canadiens. The 22-year-old said he made the decision to join the Canadiens based on his knowledge of the franchise and a visit to the city of Montreal following the World Hockey Championship. He did, however, admit to having a connection with Canadiens forward Tomas Plekanec, though the Czech centre made no impact on his decision. "I didnt really know (Pleakanec), but two years ago, we started playing roller hockey together back in Kladno (Czech Republic), because were from the same town. We didnt really talk about Montreal, though he told me a few things. But it was just my decision (to join the Canadiens), I wasnt making the decision because of someones opinions," Sekac said. Sekac told the media that he hopes he is "really close" to making the NHL, but admitted no player has an easy road to making it immediately. When asked what he thought of Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin mentioning his name amongst three players he believed could fill a spot on the wing in the top nine of the Canadiens lineup, Sekac said hed "do his best to fill the spot" and added he hoped Bergevin was right. Sekac spent the last three seasons playing with Prague Lev of the KHL, finishing second on the team in points with 11 goals and 17 assists in 47 games. Jerome Baker Jersey .

In the Brewers six games this season, no starter has allowed more than three runs. "We see the guy in front of us do a great job and we want to do even better," Gallardo said after the Brewers beat the Red Sox 4-0 on Sunday, his second straight scoreless start.NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Yankees expect Alex Rodriguez to play third base next season but want the suspended star to prove during spring training he deserves to have his position back after a one-year absence.Rodriguez hasnt played an injury-free season since 2007, turns 40 on July 27 and missed all of this year while serving his penalty for violating baseballs drug agreement and labour contract. Hell have to show his body is up to the rigours of a major league schedule.Weve got to see where hes physically at, and if he can play the field, how many days he can play the field and how many days he needs to DH, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said at a news conference Monday. I dont think really any of us know about him until we actually get him into games in spring training.New York missed consecutive postseasons for the first time since 1992 and 93. While beloved captain Derek Jeter is retiring, the much-maligned Rodriguez will be returning. The three-time AL MVP is signed for three additional seasons for a total of $61 million, part of his record $275 million, 10-year contract.He hasnt played in a year. Thats not easy to do, to sit out a year, Girardi said. Do we expect him to be a player on our team? Absolutely. Do we expect him to play third base? Yes. But in fairness I think you have to see where hes at.As for whether the Yankees will ask Rodriguez to take grounders att first base, where he could back up the oft-injured Mark Teixeira, Girardi said thats something that we have not talked about yet. Dan Marino Dolphins Jersey. .After playing 155 games or more each year from 2001-07, Rodriguez made six trips to the disabled list in six seasons for a strained right quadriceps (2008), right hip surgery (2009), a strained left calf (2010), right knee surgery (2011), a broken left hand (2012) and left hip surgery (2013).Girardi kept in contact with Rodriguez through text messages.Have not talked a ton about baseball. Ive talked more about how hes just doing and his family. It was, I dont know, once, twice a month, the manager said. Obviously that will pick up now that were through the season and I dont have nearly as much to do, just to see where hes at physically, and encouraging him, and to see what his thoughts are.Girardi doesnt expect A-Rod will have clubhouse issues with teammates but anticipates fans will remind him of the suspension.Our teammates enjoy Alex, his presence in the clubhouse, the way he likes to teach the game and talk about the game. So I dont think that will be an issue, Girardi said. Will he have to deal from some angry fans? Yeah, but well help him get through that. When was the last time Alex hasnt had to deal with that? So its not like its something that hes not used to, and sometimes players thrive on that.
