FOR FLYERS PROSPECT Shayne Gostisbehere, the World Junior Championships have served as a coming-out party. That's saying something, since Gostisbehere already helped carry Union College to the NCAA's Frozen Four last April as a freshman, just 2 months before being nabbed by the Flyers in the third round (78th overall) of the draft. "I think it's safe to say that Team USA probably didn't know that much about him before their evaluation camp in Lake Placid," Flyers director of hockey operations Chris Pryor said via phone Saturday from Russia, where he traveled to watch Gostisbehere.

Shannon Hazell of Bristol, England, made it to the quarterfinals of the Darwin Kingsley Classic with a 9-7, 10-8, 9-1 victory over Robbie Whitehouse, a Racquet Club pro, yesterday at Penn's squash courts. Whitehouse recovered from 8-4 to 8-7 before yielding the first game in close exchanges. In the second game, Whitehouse fought back from 5-8 to 8-all, only to lose in overtime. Fourth-seeded Hazell, a teaching pro at Merion Cricket Club, ran out the third game from 1-1. Dave McNeely, a member of the U.S. team that played in the world junior championships in August, advanced by 9-3, 9-4, 9-7 over Al Braff to a meeting today with Craig Rappaport of Penn.

THE FLYERS signed free-agent right wing Aaron Palushaj to a one-year deal yesterday, with the hope that he can parlay a successful season in the world's second-best league into to a full-time NHL depth position. According to a source, Palushaj's deal is a two-way (NHL/AHL) contract that will pay him $575,000 in the NHL and $225,000 in the AHL. Palushaj, 25, is an American who spent the last season playing in Russia's KHL, scoring 21 points in 53 games. A precipitous drop in the Russian ruble last December halved the value of most contracts, making guaranteed American money a lot more attractive to players, especially those who hail from North America.

Brett Hull did his talking with his stick and was nearly speechless after. Hull moved into third place on the NHL career goal list by scoring 1 minute, 51 seconds into overtime last night of the Detroit Red Wings' 3-2 victory over the visiting Los Angeles Kings. His 732nd goal snapped a tie with Marcel Dionne and moved the Red Wings forward behind only Wayne Gretzky (894) and Gordie Howe (801). Hull, who also had an assist, one-timed a shot from the bottom of the left circle to give him a goal in his seventh straight game.

Just watching Marion Jones warm up was enough to inspire Merion Mercy's Tiffany Abney and Evelyn Dwyer. The runners, representing the United Stars track club, competed in the U.S. junior national championships in Palo Alto, Calif., last weekend along with the senior runners. Although Jones was the headliner, winning her fifth straight title in the 200 meters, the two local runners also stood out. Abney will find out by next week if she will compete in the 400 hurdles at the World Junior Championships in Kingston, Jamaica, from July 16 to 21. Abney, coming off her junior year in which she was PIAA champion in the 300 hurdles, finished third (58.11 seconds)

Kerron Clement does not think of himself as one of the fastest men in the world while he sits in class or bobs his head listening to Mariah Carey CDs. Then it hits him. "I blew my mind," the University of Florida sophomore said, laughing like a lottery winner. Clement has become the man and the man to beat since breaking Michael Johnson's 1995 world indoor record in the 400 meters. At the NCAA indoor national championships in March, Clement electrified the crowd by finishing in 44.57 seconds.

Blood was spilled, tempers flared, and Canada played well enough to hold the United States under 100 points. In one of the closer games it has played while using NBA players, the United States defeated Canada, 94-60, yesterday in the Olympic qualifying tournament in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The outcome was never in doubt. But Canada, after falling behind by 24-4 in the first 61/2minutes, nearly got the margin back to single digits before watching the United States pull away early in the second half.

Since leaving his hometown of Bridgeport 10 years ago, Dave Santillo has made it big - in more ways than one - as a weightlifter. At the recent Olympic Festival in Minnesota, Santillo went from a last- minute substitute to the champion at 165 pounds. In the process, he tied a junior national record for his combined total in the snatch and clean-and-jerk categories. He also had to be dissuaded from attempting a 368-pound clean- and-jerk, which would have been an outright American record, for juniors or seniors.

When considering whether prospect Claude Giroux is ready to play in the NHL this season, perhaps it's wise to recall the Flyers' 1998 training camp in Peterborough, Ontario. Roger Neilson was the coach. The question was whether Simon Gagne, a few months removed from the draft, was ready for the NHL. "If he's not playing on a scoring line, it's not helping his development here," said general manager Bob Clarke, who sent Gagne back to the Quebec Remparts, his junior club. Giroux has starred in this camp, but he could be better served by returning to Gatineau, playing on a top line in juniors, rather than being on a fourth line in the NHL. "I think if a young guy in that situation is going to make your team, he really has to be an impact player every day," Flyers coach John Stevens said.

The chair he sat in for an interview, the swimsuit he donned for practice, the Graham Activities Building pool he nearly crossed without surfacing, they all looked too small for Reece Whitley. Though barely 15 - his birthday was earlier this month - Whitley is a 6-foot-8, 235-pound Penn Charter freshman, and when he mingles with swimming teammates, he looks more like their instructor than their peer. In fact, these days the only thing that seems large enough to fit Whitley is his enormous promise.

Jack Eichel and Chase DeLeo scored in a shootout to help the U.S. men's hockey team beat defending champion Finland, 2-1, on Friday in their round-robin opener in the World Junior Championship in Montreal. Eichel is a freshman at Boston University, and DeLeo plays for Portland in the Western Hockey League. "We knew it was going to be a tough game," said Eichel, a top prospect in the 2015 NHL draft. "They're the defending champs, and you've got to give them a lot of credit.

PITTSBURGH - Penguins captain Sidney Crosby was asked to name one or two Flyers his team most had to worry about stopping during the Eastern Conference final that began last night at Mellon Arena. He didn't really want to point at anyone specifically, but a name popped out of his mouth. "If we go on this year, I would say [R.J.] Umberger and the way he's playing right now," Crosby said. And who could blame him? Coming into this playoff series, Umberger presented a double whammy.

When they're not on the river, they're on the road. And that's the way Malvern Prep's crew likes it. After winning a pair of national championships in the spring, the Friars are traveling again this summer. And their tour is aggressive and ambitious. The quintet of Justin Teti, Pat Ryan, Ryan Coyne, Kyle Thurman and Matt Madonna is in Ottawa, Ontario, training for Saturday's CanAmMex Regatta. Teti and Ryan leave for Banyoles, Spain, on July 18 for the FISA world rowing junior championships, set for July 27 to Aug. 1.

The United States and Canada have perfect records in the tournament for players younger than 20. Canada has played the United States in an under-20 worlds final once, in 1997 in Switzerland.
