Three members of the Bemidji State University Men’s Hockey team will lace up their skates this week to participate in National Hockey League development camps. Senior goaltender Michael Bitzer and sophomore defenseman Zach Whitecloud will travel to El Segundo, Calif., for the L.A. Kings’ camp, while BSU newcomer Brendan Harris will participate in his hometown Vegas Golden Knights' inaugural camp.  The camps, which begin Tuesday and run through the end of the week, feature young talent within the organization’s system, the team’s newest draft picks and other non-roster camp invites. Development camps typically include on-ice team practices, group and position skills sessions as well as off-ice testing, strength training and other activities, and often culminate with team scrimmages.

Chris Sale's latest pitching clinic helped deliver the Red Sox a 4-1 victory over the Twins in Monday night's opener of a four-game series between two teams that started the day in first place in their respective divisions.  The lanky lefty allowed four hits and a run over 6 1/3 innings, walking two and striking out nine. It was Sale's 14th quality start in his 16 outings with the Red Sox. Picking up steam in his quest to be an All-Star for the sixth time, Sale improved to 10-3 while lowering his ERA to 2.77.

Before he takes to the field as a Minnesota Viking for the first time, Michael Floyd will be spending some time in jail.  The St. Paul native has been ordered to serve one day in jail for violating the conditions of his house arrest following a DUI in February, according to ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss.  He wasn’t allowed to consume alcohol as part of his house arrest yet tested positive earlier this month – which he blamed on the consumption of the slightly-alcoholic, fermented tea drink kombucha. (Which, yes, does contain some alcohol.)  The Vikings backed him up on his explanation, with Floyd saying he didn’t realize the drink was alcoholic, but NBC Sports reports a judge in Scottsdale, Arizona didn’t buy it and ordered him to serve a day in jail.
