Chicago 4, Minnesota 3 (OT). ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Jonathan Toews scored a power-play goal 3:09 into overtime to lift the Chicago Blackhawks over the Minnesota Wild 4-3 Wednesday night. Ryan Suter was called for holding midway through the overtime, and with the man advantage, Toews slipped a rebound between the skates of goalie Darcy Kuemper.


Cubs news. CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs have acquired right-hander Alec Mills from the Kansas City Royals for outfielder Donnie Dewees. Mills was designated for assignment earlier Wednesday after the Royals signed free agent pitcher Jason Hammel, who played last season for the World Series champion Cubs.

Hot stove. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Royals have announced their two-year, $16 million contract with Jason Hammel. The move is designed to shore up the starting rotation after the death of Yordano Ventura in a car accident last month.

Hammel was 15-10 with a 3.83 ERA for the World Series-champion Chicago Cubs last season and has proven to be a workhorse with at least 30 appearances in each of the past three seasons.
