Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks, Ryan OReilly of the Colorado Avalanche and Martin St. http://www.thenflseahawksfanatic.com/c-25-seahawks-bobby-wagner-jersey.aspx . Louis, who split the year between the New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning are the three finalists for the 2013-14 Lady Byng Memorial Trophy. The Lady Byng is awarded “to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability.” St. Louis is the reigning Lady Byng winner and has won the trophy three of the past four seasons, losing only to Florida Panthers defenceman Brian Campbell in 2011-12. It is St. Louis seventh time being named a finalist for the Lady Byng. St. Louis recorded his seventh 30-goal season between his time in Tampa and New York. He ranked third among NHL forwards in total ice time, while only getting called for 10 minutes in penalties. This is Marleaus second nomination for the trophy, having finished third in voting in 2005-06. The Sharks veteran scored 33 goals, marking his seventh 30-goal season in the past nine. Marleau played in all 82 games averaging 20:31 minutes, racking up just 18 penalty minutes. OReilly has never before been named a finalist for an individual NHL award. The Avs forward notched a career-high 64 points, including a team-high 28 goals. OReilly was called for just one minor penalty all season, becoming just the second player in NHL history to receive two or fewer PIM over 80 or more games. http://www.thenflseahawksfanatic.com/c-48-seahawks-rees-odhiambo-jersey.aspx . -- Darrun Hilliard scored 21 points and Josh Hart added 13, lifting the undefeated No. http://www.thenflseahawksfanatic.com/c-14-seahawks-cassius-marsh-jersey.aspx . - Minnesota rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is out the Vikings game Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers because of a sprained left ankle.LONDON -- Total prize money for this years Wimbledon tournament will reach 25 million pounds ($42 million), an increase of 10.8 per cent that will mostly favour the early-round losers. The All England Club said Tuesday that the mens and womens singles champions will each receive 1.76 million pounds ($2.9 million), a 10 per cent increase on last years top prize won by Andy Murray and Marion Bartoli. By comparison, this years French Open champions will receive 1.65 million euros ($2.3 million) while Stanislas Wawrinka and Li Na earned $2.65 million for their wins at the Australian Open in January. U.S. Open organizers have yet to announce the prize money for this years tournament. The main increases at Wimbledon are for the early losers, with players who fail to get past the third round receiving prize money worth 12.5 per cent more than in 2013. "Weve placed emphasis on the large group of players who need our help the most, those players who lose in qualifying and in the early rounds of the championships," Wimbledon chairman Philip Brook said. "We also had an eye to being competitive internationally, and we do keep our watch on what is going on in other tennis events and in particular the other Grand Slams." The grass-court Grand Slam will be played from June 23-July 6. In keeping with player demands for a larger slice of Grand Slam revenues, all four majors have greatly increased their prize money in the past two years, with Wimbledon offering the biggest amount following a record 40 per cent increase last year. The French Open now offers more than 25 million euros ($34.5 million) while the U.S. Open increased its purse to $34.3 million and the Australian Open went up to AU$33 million ($31 million). The Wimbledon prize money for the majority of singles players who lose in the first three rounds of the grass-court tournament has been increased by more than 100 per cent over a three-year period. The main increase this year is for first-round losers, with each receiving 27,000 pounds ($45,450), 14.9 per cent more than last year. "This year weve got a very generous increase once again," Brook said. &quuot;We wanted to build on the focus from 2012 and 2013. http://www.thenflseahawksfanatic.com/c-24-seahawks-kj-wright-jersey.aspx. ." There will also be an increase of 8.7 per cent in prize money for doubles and a 6.1 per cent increase for mixed doubles. In all, an extra 2.4 million pounds ($4 million) is up for grabs compared to last year. Brook said plans to build a retractable roof on Court No. 1 are still on track pending planning approval, with an application to be submitted later this year. The roof, similar to the one on Centre Court, should be completed in 2019, and court capacity will be increased by 900 seats to 12,400. Brook also confirmed the tournament will start a week later in 2015 to create a three-week gap between the French Open and Wimbledon, with the mens final on July 12. "Hopefully with the extra week more players will be encouraged to compete on grass," Brook said. Seedings for this years tournament will be announced on June 18. Brook said defending champion Murray, who has slipped to eighth in the rankings, will stay among the top seeds thanks to his strong record on grass over the past two years. Wimbledons seeding order is determined using the ATP rankings and points are added for achievements in grass-court tournaments in the past 12 months. "And we add to that 75 per cent of the best-performing tournament in the previous year," Brook said. "For Andy Murray, as the winner of Queens last year and the winner here last year, and a finalist here in 2012, there will be a significant impact on him." Brooks said the seedings will also have "significant impact" on seven-time champion Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, Brook said. Brook did not comment on speculation of a possible return to competition by Bartoli ahead of Wimbledon. The 29-year-old Frenchwoman retired suddenly after a loss at Cincinnati last August, explaining that her body could no longer take the strain after 14 years as a pro. When asked if her entourage had been in touch recently and if Bartoli would be granted a wild card if she asked for one, Brook said: "The rumours in France have not reached London yet, so well wait and see."
