The Seattle Seahawks released defensive lineman Malik
McDowell at the start of training camp Thursday.

The 2017 second-round pick never played a down for the team following an ATV
accident.

Cornerback DeAndre Elliott were also released ahead of Seattle's first
practice.

McDowell was released with a non-football injury designation Authentic

, while Elliott failed his physical.

Seattle had high hopes for McDowell when he was taken as the Seahawks' first
draft pick in 2017. He never saw the field, though, after suffering a severe
concussion in an ATV accident prior to the start of training camp a year ago.
The team remained vague about his specific injuries throughout last season, but
it became clear he might never suit up.

The Seahawks also placed safety Kam Chancellor on the reserve/physically
unable to perform list. The procedural move was expected after Chancellor
announced he was unlikely to play again due to a neck injury but didn't
officially retire due to his contract.

The Detroit Red Wings are a team in
transition, and that was evident Tuesday night.

Veteran defenseman Niklas Kronwall scored a goal for his 400th point, while
rookie defenseman Joe Hicketts, playing his second NHL game Cheap
Tanner Lee Jersey
, grabbed a pair of assists for his first career
points as the Red Wings beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-2.

”It’s neat for sure,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. ”It’s good. I thought
a number of our young players played well.”

Luke Glendening scored twice and Darren Helm matched his career high with
three points. Helm had a goal and two assists, and Frans Nielsen and Niklas
Kronwall also scored for Detroit. Jimmy Howard made 22 saves to help the Red
Wings win in regulation for the first time since a 3-1 victory over the Carolina
Hurricanes on Feb. 24.

Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang scored for the Penguins. Matt Murray stopped 21
shots.

It took Pittsburgh 38 seconds to gain the lead. Crosby took Jake Guentzel’s
cross-ice feed and snapped a shot before Howard could get across.

”(Dylan) Larkin, Helm and (Anthony) Mantha was the line that went up against
Crosby,” Blashill said. ”They didn’t start great. The turnover early and then
they go down and score. But that’s the learning process that you have to do and
after that they were really good, so that’s a real positive.”

The Red Wings pulled even 17:43 into opening period. Helm found Kronwall
pinching down from the point, and Kronwall whipped a quick shot past Murray. It
was his 80th goal Authentic
Roquan Smith Jersey
, tying him for fourth among Wings defensemen
with Hall of Famer Marcel Pronovost.

”I try to keep them,” Kronwall said of his milestone pucks. ”I’m not sure
exactly where I have them. I don’t have that many, let’s be honest. I think
they’re around somewhere.”

Detroit, mired in a 1-12-1 stretch, grabbed the lead on the power play at
14:28 of the second period. Martin Frk faked a shot, then zipped the puck across
the ice to Nielsen, whose high shot eluded the sprawling Murray.

Just 41 seconds later Customized New
England Patriots Jerseys
, Detroit made it 3-1 when Glendening
deflected Nick Jensen’s point shot.

”We let them have the momentum with those two quick goals in the second
period,” Crosby said. ”You can’t let that happen. Once we fell behind there, we
were chasing the game.”

The Red Wings added another goal 6:21 into the third period when Helm
converted Larkin’s feed for his 10th.

Letang’s point shot found its way through traffic and behind Howard with 3:16
left in regulation.

Glendening finished the scoring into an empty net with 1:28 to play.

”I don’t think we were struggling tonight, we just weren’t playing with the
kind of urgency it takes to win games,” Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. ”This
is a hard league, and it is hard to win a game no matter who you are
playing.

”If you aren’t willing to make the commitment it takes to give that kind of
effort, you are going to get beat.”

NOTES: Red Wings GM Ken Holland would not confirm reports that he and
Blashill would return next season Falcons
Logan Paulsen Jersey
, saying only that the question would be
answered by the end of the season. … The Penguins are the first visiting team to
lose twice at Little Caesars Arena. They also fell 4-1 in Detroit on Dec. 31. .
Glendening recorded his second career multi-goal game and first since Jan. 27,
2015 at Florida, along with his fifth career multi-point game.
