NEWARK, N.J. -- The NHL reduced its penalty against the New Jersey Devils on Thursday for signing Ilya Kovalchuk in 2010. The Devils will keep the first-round draft pick they were scheduled to forfeit this year, and the league will reduce the $3 million fine assessed against the team for circumventing the NHL-NHLPA collective bargaining agreement The Devils recently applied to the league for reconsideration and relief from a portion of the original penalty, citing primarily changes in circumstances which, in the clubs view, changed the appropriateness of the sanctions. The NHL did not spell out what changed, but Kovalchuk retired after last season and returned to Russia to play there. Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said the franchises new ownership asked the league to reconsider the penalty, and a hearing was held this year. "Were pleased," said Lamoriello, who said several factors other than Kovalchuks retirement went into the leagues decision, without elaborating. Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur felt the original NHL penalty was harsh. "I thought it was a bad judgment by them when they penalized with a first-round pick and all the money," Brodeur said. "I thought they hit our organization pretty hard at the time. It will be nice for the future to count on an extra No. 1 pick." The league said the Devils will be entitled to the 30th selection overall -- the last pick in the first round -- in the 2014 draft. They will not be permitted to trade or transfer its right to that pick. Kovalchuk, who had been acquired by the Devils in February 2010, became a free agent at the end of that season. New Jersey signed him to a 17-year, $102 million deal but the league ruled what would have been the longest contract in NHL circumvented the salary cap and rejected it. Arbitrator Richard Bloch heard the unions appeal and nullified the deal. The Devils eventually signed the Russian to a 15-year, $100 million contract deal. However, the NHL ruled the original contact tried to get around the salary cap and penalized the three-time Stanley Cup champions. The Devils had already forfeited a third-round draft pick in 2011. The team also had a first-round draft pick taken from them in the ruling handed down by an independent arbiter, but they had the right to defer until 2014. The Devils kept deferring the loss of the first-round pick, which they were due to lose in June. The NHL said it would not comment further on the decision.

Moments after his Brooklyn Nets teammates ran out onto the court to congratulate him following their 100-98 overtime win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday night, Johnson could only shake his head at scoring only 13 points on 6-of-19 shooting.NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessees ever-increasing list of injuries now puts the Titans into position to evaluate rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger in an area they hoped to avoid.The rookie sprained his right, throwing shoulder Sunday when sacked by J.J. Watt, knocking him out of the Titans 45-21 loss to the Houston Texans. Mettenberger couldnt return in that game, and his status for Sunday hosting the New York Giants is in question.But coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday the sprain isnt as bad as the Titans feared with Mettenberger moving pretty well. They have to see how the rookie recovers during the week, and how Mettenberger handles his first NFL injury will give the Titans another glimpse into whether he can be their quarterback past December.Thats what the NFL as a player is all about, Whisenhunt said. Its a tough game. Youve got to be able to do that. Youve got to be able to rally and come back and play. ... You certainly dont want put players at risk. Thats not what its about. But you dont feel great this time of year in the NFL no matter what youve done so you have to work through those things.Mettenberger already was playing behind a patchwork offensive line when hurt. The Titans played without three starters — left tackle Taylor Lewan, centre Brian Schwenke and right tackle Michael Oher — because of injuries. Oher heard a pop during warmups and didnt play, leaving only six linemen available. Right guard Chance Warmack hurt an ankle later in the third quarter.Watt landed on Mettenberger after the rookie threw a pass to Kendall Wright in the third quarter, and the rookie couldnt return. Mettenberger was 13 of 19 for 184 yards with a touchdown and an interception with a passer rating of 95.1.The onee interception was a pass that led to receiver Justin Hunter being hit and lacerating his spleen.ddddddddddddHunter went to a Houston hospital and remained there Monday, though Whisenhunt said Hunter has stabilized and should be released within the next couple days. Asked if Hunter will miss the rest of the season, Whisenhunt only said they will know more later this week.On the throw Hunter was hurt, Whisenhunt said Mettenberger should have thrown the ball to the other side of the field.The sixth-round draft pick out of LSU said after the game hes a tough guy and expects to play when the New York Giants (3-9) visit Sunday. Whisenhunt said the soreness will be a factor in how well Mettenberger can throw.The Titans now have lost six straight and 10 of their last 11 overall. Whisenhunt said they havent seen Mettenberger yet in a tight game late or with the Titans protecting a late lead.Were getting some evaluation of Zach in as tough a situation as you can possibly be in, Whisenhunt said. Theres no question what were seeing him do is invaluable as far as evaluating him.If the rookie quarterback plays, whether he has his starting tackles back remains to be seen. Lewan is out of the walking boot trying to strengthen his sprained left ankle. Oher missed the first game of his six-year career.The Titans are in the easiest stretch of their schedule with a combined seven wins among the next three opponents among the Giants, Jets and Jaguars.It would be nice to certainly get a win, and I hope we recognize that as a team ... we got to play better football, Whisenhunt said.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Teresa M.
