The IIHF has suspended Switzerland defenceman Goran Bezina two games following
his check to the head and neck area of France forward Anthony Guttig on
Saturday. John Elway Jersey . Bezina will sit out
Switzerlands two remaining games in the preliminary round. The incident occurred
at 15:21 of the third period. Bezina received a match penalty for his hit, which
resulted in a concussion to Guttig. The match penalty is an automatic one-game
suspension. Upon review of the incident, Bezina received a further one-game
suspension and will sit out Sundays game against Slovakia and Tuesday against
the United States. Also, Finland defenceman Anssi Salmela was kicked out of
Sundays game against the USA after a vicious hit on Team USA and Dallas Stars
defenceman Alex Goligoski. Salmela received a five-minute major, game misconduct
and a suspension from the IIHF will likely be handed down. Finland finishes the
preliminary round on Monday against Kazakhstan. Terrell Davis Jersey . —Dan Quinn birdied

draft pick in 2010, Watson has played two seasons in the CFL, both with
Winnipeg. He didnt miss a game last year, recording 69 receptions in the regular
season for 793 yards and one touchdown. Peyton Manning Camo Jersey . The Englishman
who won perhaps the zaniest of the 32 races held at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve
since 1978 for McLaren Mercedes in the pouring rain last year is hoping to
repeat that feat and get back into the Formula One drivers championship race at
the same time.Adam Rita has lost his wingman. Greg Mohns, who earned Grey Cup
rings in separate stints as an executive with the Toronto Argonauts, died
Wednesday of throat cancer. He was 62. Rita and Mohns worked together in the CFL
with Toronto, the B.C. Lions and Memphis Mad Dogs. The two won a Grey Cup
together in 2004 with the Argos when Rita was the clubs general manager and
Mohns its player-personnel director. “He was my wingman, thats what he called
himself,” Rita said. “He was very loyal and he worked extremely hard. His worth
ethic was unbelievable, he was very trustworthy and he was a good teammate. “The
trust between he and I was very very good, I knew where his heart was and over
the years we became very good friends. But that never clouded his focus on
getting personnel and evaluating people and what players to bring in.” Rita said
as Mohnss health worsened, Rita took to writing emails to his friend because
Mohns found it very difficult to speak on the phone. “Its always very very sad
when anyone passes on but the relief, not only for him but all of us, is hes in
a good place now,” Rita said. “Hopefully, down the road well be able to meet up
again.” The native of Pasadena, Calif., began his CFL career in 1991 as the
Hamilton Tiger-Cats player-personnel director before becoming the clubs
assistant general manager the following season. “The thing I liked about Greg
was he was extremely loyal and an extremely hard worker,” said John Gregory, who
served as Hamiltons head coach and football-operations director from 1991 to 94.
“He was very good at his job, a real pro. “He was also a good guy and a very fun
guy to be around.” Mohns went on to become the player-personnel director of the
expansion Memphis Mad Dogs in 95 before joining the Argos in 96 as their
assistant general manager. With Doug Flutie at quarterback, Toronto posted a
15-3 record before capping the season with the first of two straight Grey Cup
titles. Mohns and the Argos parted company following the 96 campaign but he
returned to the CFL with the B.C. Lions in 98 as an assistant to the president.
Mohns became the clubs head coach and led the team to a 22-12 mark, his .647 win
percentage leaving him third in club history for head coaches. Mohns began the
2000 season on B.C.s sidelines but resigned with the club sporting a 3-4 record.
He was replaced by Steve Buratto, who went on to lead the Lions to the Grey Cup
that season. “Ive always had a lot of respect for Greg Mohns,” said B.C. Lions
general manager Wally Buono. “We had a very friendly but, I guess, heated
rivalry. Thats all part of what makes friendships friendships. “But, you know
what, I had a lot of respect for him as a football man. Weve crossed paths many
a time, but it was always on a friendly competitive situation.” Buono said Mohns
legacy will be his role in bringing key players into the CFL. Although Mohns was
perceived publicly as a controversial figure, he was always friendly and open
with others at coaches conventions and league events. “To me, what happens on
the field during the game is all part of the competition,” Buono said. “At the
end of it, Greg enjoyed life. He enjoyed football and he did a lot to help our
league.” B.C. Lions trainer Bill Reichelt recalled how Mohns arranged to have an
RCMP motorcade escort the team bus to training camp one year. “He liked to do
that sort of thing,” Reichelt said. “I dont know if it was just for the show or
he just wanted to do it.” Mohns often had a love-hate relationship with media.
But Reichelt and other Lions personnel said he was popular within the team. “I
got along great with him,” Reichelt said. “He was your consummate football guy.
Football, he just knew it in and out. “He knew how to treat people. He knew how
to get what he wanted out of his employees. Ive got nothing but real good
memories of when Greg was here.” But Reichelt acknowledged Mohns was a
polarizing figure within the CFL. “His persona was like that,” Reichelt said.
“Greg was that kind of a person. “Everything had to be right. Clothes and
everything had to be perfect. Whatever he did was right down to the letter.”
Reichelt did recall Mohns chewing him out once but couldnt recall the reason.
Although the two were not in regular conttact in recent years, Mohns did send
Reichelt a Christmas card every year. Steve Atwater Authentic Jersey. After leaving
B.C., Mohns served as the player-personnel director for the XFLs San Francisco
Demons before returning to Toronto in 2003 as the clubs director of football
operations and player-personnel director. After the Argos Grey Cup victory in
2004, he was promoted to assistant general manager in 2005 and remained in that
capacity until 2009. He then became the player-personnel director of UFLs Omaha
Nighthawks, a position he held up to his death. Lions coaches and staff praised
Mohns for his expertise on personnel. B.C. coach Mike Benevides said that when
Mohns ran the CFL combine camp, he made sure measurements of players tests, size
and weight were exact. He also told people in the stands to “shut the hell up”
if they were distracting evaluators from their duties. “Thats just broke my
heart when I found out just now, because I knew he was ill,” Benevides said.
Benevides said Mohns played a large role in 2008 when the Argos tried to hire
Benevides, then the Lions assistant coach, as their head coach. “He picked me up
at the airport, and he was part of the first interview and the second
interview,” Benevides recalled. “The hard part was, you could tell he had been
suffering the last little while.” Benevides, who formerly played an active role
in recruiting Canadian talent for the Lions, praised Mohns for making his
personnel duties easier. “He was a football man that lived and breathed the
game, loved it and had a passion for it—and a guy that did what he did
extremely well,” Benevides said. Lions receiver Arland Bruce III, who hadnt
always gotten along with coaches and management in his previous stops in
Winnipeg, Toronto and Hamilton, praised Mohns for making him feel welcome right
away with the Argos. “My prayers go out to him,” Bruce said. “He was a straight
shooter, man. “Him and (former Argos coach and general manager) Adam Rita were
real close. They were very similar guys to me. When I first came to Toronto in
04, I had dinner with Adam Rita and Mr. Mohns, and they accepted me right off
the bat. We had great conversations over there. I have a lot of respect for Mr.
Mohns. Thats too bad.” Lions defensive co-ordinator Rich Stubler, who worked
with Mohns during a previous stint with B.C. as well as with the Argos, called
him “a great detail guy.” “He knew every personnel guy in the entire world,”
Stubler said. “He was very opinionated and a great guy.” The CFL is a league
known for a high turnover rate. Stubler said Mohns recruited many players who
stuck with teams for several years. “But he was a non-computer guy,” Stubler
said. “If you walked into his room, there were 6,000 books in there, not one
thing on a computer. “But he could always lay his hands on what you needed.”
Stubler praised Mohns for helping to build Grey Cup champions in B.C. and
Toronto and getting both clubs through difficult transitions. The Lions
defensive co-ordinator said Mohns got the Lions “back on even footing” prior to
Wally Buonos arrival as general manager and coach. Lions centre Angus Reid never
played for Mohns but suited up against his clubs and described Mohns as a
“character” and “personality.” “Some people loved him,” Reid said. “Some people
didnt like him at all. He was a very polarizing guy from what I understand. I
never met him. “He was a pretty charismatic and a pretty vocal, emotional guy
from what I could see. He showed a lot of what he was thinking visually.” Mohns
was an offensive lineman at Bradley University and Baker University. He began
coaching at Oklahoma State in 1972 and remained there until 1977. He also worked
as an assistant coach under Frank Kush at Arizona State as well as Bum Phillips
and Wade Phillips at Oklahoma State. Mohns served as a head coach at Ventura
College from 1980-81, posting a 15-3-2 overall record. Mohns went on to spend
five seasons with the NFLs Kansas City Chiefs (1983-87), including the final two
as the clubs director of pro personnel. Mohns was also an avid musician and
drummer and played in bands with jazz performers Pat and Mike Methany. Mohns is
survived by his son, Jason, currently a high school head coach in Scottsdale,
Ariz. ’ ’ ’
