OTTAWA -- Chris Byrne stepped down as general manager of the Ottawa 67s on Tuesday and was replaced by assistant GM Pat Higgins. Zach Fulton Jersey . Byrnes resignation will take effect immediately as he pursues new challenges at the NHL level, the Ontario Hockey League team said in a release. "Im happy for Chris," said team governor Jeff Hunt. "He served us well as an assistant coach, head coach and most recently as general manager and its great to know hes moving up to the NHL level. We wish him well." Byrne coached and managed in the 67s organization for eight seasons. He served as both head coach and GM over the last three seasons. "Im thankful to Jeff and the 67s organization for a great experience in Ottawa and for allowing me to pursue my dream of working in the NHL," said Byrne. "This opportunity came up very recently and it really is something I couldnt turn down. "I know the 67s have a great core of young, talented players and I wish them and the organization good luck in the future." Details on his NHL plans were not immediately released. Higgins, meanwhile, has spent over 20 seasons in the organization as a scout, assistant GM and head of scouting. Hell oversee all facets of hockey operations. "Im humbled and excited by the opportunity the 67s have given me," said Higgins. "We have a talented roster of new players joining a more experienced core group of veterans and I know great things are ahead for the fans. Thanks to Jeff, Chris and (former coach) Brian Kilrea for their roles in my development as a hockey operations leader." Albert Wilson Jersey . But unfortunately for the Niagara Falls, Ont., native, a pulled muscle wouldnt allow him to go past the second set. Japan sealed its victory over Canada in the first-round Davis Cup tie after Nishikori downed an ailing Dancevic 6-2, 1-0. Marcus Peters Jersey . Dragic was a game-time decision because of a sore right ankle that had kept him out of Wednesdays loss at Utah, but played all but the last 10 seconds of the second half in the first 40-point game for a Phoenix player since Amare Stoudemires 44 on March 19, 2010. .com) - Bradley Beal deposited a season-high 33 points and John Wall posted another double-double as the Washington Wizards went on the road and beat the Houston Rockets, 104-103.COLUMBUS, Ohio - Through the first two games of the season, the Dallas Stars had trouble scoring.Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn closed that gap in a hurry.Seguin scored three goals, including the tiebreaker with 7:44 left in the third, and Benn added a goal and three assists to lift the Stars to a 4-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night for their first win.That was an awesome display, said Lindy Ruff, who collected his first win as Stars coach after an 0-1-1 start. I thought both guys played well. Seggy had a heck of a game and Benny the same thing.Seguin redirected Benns shot to give the Stars the lead then added an empty-netter. Seguin also opened the scoring in the first.Asked about Benns goal, which made it 2-0, Seguin cracked, I was wide open, actually.The Stars matched their goal total in their first two games. Kari Lehtonen had 33 saves, including several highlight stops in the closing minutes.Dallas wasnt exactly desperate for a win, but the victory sure was welcome.It would have (stunk), Benn said of the potential for a winless three-game start. But our goalie played good and we found a way to win, to get the two points.More than just the victory was how the Stars won it: On the road, against a team that had started 2-0-0 after a breakthrough season a year ago.It was a big thing, for sure, Seguin said. Our first win, especially on the road.Both teams traded scoring chances until Benn gathered the puck near the middle of the blue line and fired a low, hard shot that Seguin got a stick on.Seguin then had empty-net goal with a second left.It was quite a breakthrough night for Seguin, who had three hat tricks a year ago but was scoreless coming in.The 1-2 punch was nothing new, of course. Benn is coming off a season in which he had 34 goals and 45 assists and hadd a plus-21 rating. Kenneth Acker Jersey. Seguin, who always seems to be in the right place with the puck, had 37 goals and 84 points a year ago.Its stuff we built and were going to keep on building, Seguin said of the pairs rapport on the ice. (Benn) kind of asked me after the last game (a 4-1 loss at Nashville on Saturday) if we were panicking. We definitely werent but we thought we needed to do better. We had a better compete level from the drop of the puck (tonight).Benn, without a point and, like Seguin, a minus-3 plus/minus in the first two games, passed from the right wing to Seguins tape at the left doorstep, where he was able to jam the puck in past a defenceman while beating Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky just 3:36 in.Benn then ended up with a loose puck and no one near him in the high slot. He skated in and lifted a wrister inside the far post and past Bobrovsky for a 2-0 lead.That wasnt the start we wanted, said Ryan Johansen, who had both goals for the Blue Jackets. They were trying to get to 3-0 for the first time in the franchises 14 seasons.Jack Johnson added two assists and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 31 shots for Columbus.They were hungry. They came out and put us on our heels, said Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards, who attributed the loss to the poor first period. Then it came down to battles and with their speed they won most of them.NOTES: Dallas was without RW Valeri Nichushkin (groin/hip pointer), who was replaced on the top line by Colton Sceviour. ... The Stars are now 14-4-3 in their last 21 trips to Nationwide Arena. ... Columbus placed C Brian Gibbons earlier Tuesday. ... Linesman Brad Kovachik took a puck to his left leg and had to be helped off the ice early in the second period.___Follow Rusty Miller on Twitter: Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
