COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A year after Patrick Kanes career appeared in jeopardy because of a sexual assault claim, the Chicago Blackhawks star was named one of the alternate captains for the United States for the World Cup of Hockey.Its a huge honor for sure, Kane said. Its one of those things I dont know if I was expecting to receive that, but at the same time, I still think its a responsibility I can handle and hopefully take somewhat of a leadership role and take charge.The sexual assault case in his hometown of Buffalo, New York, was dropped Nov. 5 for what the prosecutor said was a clear lack of evidence, and Kane quickly put aside the off-ice troubles. He had an early 26-game points streak and became the first American-born player to win the Art Ross (top scorer) and Hart (most valuable player) trophies.Sometimes you look back, its almost like a blur, it went by so quick, he said. It didnt seem like it at the time, but it was a really fun year.Kane had 106 points (46 goals, 60 assists) to become the first player to crack the 100-point mark in four seasons, and he finished 17 points ahead of runner-up Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars.He was on a roll early, got his confidence going and never looked back, said David Backes, the Boston Bruins center and U.S. teammate.Along the way, Kane might have grown up as well. The incident in Buffalo was the latest of several brushes with the law in his career.Im 27 years old. Im going to be 28 later this year; you want to maximize your potential, he said. You want to get all you can out of your prime while youre still young, maybe advance that prime into your later years, too. Thats where my thinking is now.U.S. and Columbus Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella knew Kanes reputation but did not know him before the Americans training camp opened Monday in the Ohio city.He has matured. We all see that, the coach said. A lot of things have gone on with him obviously. Just talking with him one-on-one here in the past couple of days you can see the maturity.Thats why Kane was named an alternate captain, along with the Minnesota Wilds Ryan Suter, to captain Joe Pavelski of the San Jose Sharks.I want [Kane] to take more responsibility now, Tortorella said. Hes ready for more responsibility as a leader of a U.S. team where before it was Kaner, go play, and hes really good at it. I think hes ready for more responsibility, and Im ready to give it to him because he deserves it.The game has always come easy for Kane, who has won Stanley Cups with the Blackhawks in 2010, 13 and 15 and a silver medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. But last season, he ascended to a different level.He was the best player in the league last year, said?Montreal Canadiens winger Max Pacioretty. Not many people can play the game the way he does. Hes special.Pacioretty, Kane and Pavelski form the top line for the U.S., and they need to come through for any chance of winning the eight-team tournament. The U.S plays World Cup favorite Canada in exhibition games Friday in Columbus and Saturday in Ottawa.The focus will be on Kane, but this time, for a good reason.I sometimes catch myself over the summer saying, OK, you did it once but can you do it again? Can you prove yourself again? Kane said. It gave me a little bit of motivation over the summer, a lot of motivation. I want to get back to the level, stay there and do it as long as I can. Its fun when youre producing like that on the ice. You feel awesome. Steve Yzerman Jersey .C. United of Major League Soccer.

Trevor Daley Jersey . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- J.J. Spaun made a 12-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a record-setting victory Sunday in the Web.com Tours News Sentinel Open.Already assured a PGA Tour card as a top-25 finisher on the money list, Spaun broke through at Fox Den on his 26th birthday for his first tour victory.Spaun closed with a 5-under 66 and a one-stroke victory over best friend Sam Ryder, the third-round leader. Ryder had a chance to force a playoff, but missed an 8-foot birdie try on the par-5 18th, moments after Spaun made his go-ahead putt.I fought really hard out there and to have a putt at the last hole to win it and to bury it was a dream feeling, Spaun said. A lot of redemption in that putt.Spaun had a 26-under 258 total to break the tournament record of 23 under set by set by Tim Conley in 1993 at Willow Creek and matched by Heath Slocum in 2001 at Fox Den. Spaun broke Conleys mark of 263.Spaun won after finishing second twice this season, a run that jokingly promoted The Bridesmaid tag from his tour friends. He lost a playoff to Ollie Schniederjans in June in Wichita, Kansas, and was second behind Nicholas Lindheim last month in Lehi, Utah.Ive been knocking on the door all year, had a couple really close chances that I let slip out of my hands, and I didnt want that to happen today, especially when I had that opportunity on the last hole. I knew it was my time and I knew I was going to make it, and I buried it.Spaun earned $99,000 to jump from fifth to third on the money list wiith $335,432 with only the regular-season finale left next week at Pumpkin Ridge in Oregon.dddddddddddd.

I wanted him to win if I didnt win, but I also didnt want it to come down to how it came down, Spaun said. I wish he would have just kicked my butt today and beat me by six shots. I would have been happy. To come down the stretch and to make a putt and force him to make it, it just felt bad. Its a tough situation. He understands, and he said I can be happy, but its just kind of a downer to be honest.Ryder closed with a 68 after opening with rounds of 64, 64 and 63. He earned $59,400 to move from 55th to 29th on the money list with $137,961.I dont feel great right now, to be honest, Ryder said. I came out solid, I was playing good all day, made two bogeys from inside 60 yards, had a couple three-putts and felt like I kind of let it slip away. I fought back, yeah, but its going to sting for a minute.Spaun was making his 19th Web.com Tour start. He has five top-six finishes in his last nine events.Ryan Brehm and Rick Lamb tied for third at 23 under. Brehm had a 66, and Lamb shot 67.
