Former Bruin Jonathan charged in shooting death

Former Bruins forward Stan Jonathan has been charged in the shooting death of an Ontario man while on a hunting trip, according to a CBC.ca report.

The former Bruins tough guy has been charged with criminal negligence causing death in the hunting death of Hamilton resident Peter Kosid. According to the report, Kosid was wearing camouflage and bow hunting on a friend's property the morning of Nov. 11 when he was shot and killed, said Const. Derrick Anderson from Six Nations Police.

The 57-year-old Jonathan, a member of the Six Nations tribe, was deer hunting when he fired a bullet that traveled about 375 meters before reportedly hitting Kosid. Jonathan went over to investigate and police were called, Anderson said. Jonathan had a bail hearing in Brantford Wednesday morning and will appear in Brantford court again on Dec. 14.

Jonathan played more than 400 games in the NHL -- including a 19-game stint for the Pittsburgh Penguins -- from 1976 to 1983, but was best known as a feisty Bruins forward for the Lunch Pail A.C. crew under head coach Don Cherry in the late 1970s.

Jonathan scored 91 goals and accumulated 110 assists in the regular season, and had 12 points in 63 playoff games.

Source: Despite addition of Nunez, Sox plan to keep Devers on roster

BOSTON — Eduardo Nunez is expected to be activated Friday night, but he doesn't have third base all to himself. Rookie Rafael Devers is not going to be sent to the minors to make room, a baseball source told CSNNE on Friday.

The Red Sox announced a roster move for David Price, who went to the disabled list with left elbow inflammation. But the corresponding move to activate Nunez, whom the Red Sox acquired from the Giants in a trade for two minor leaguers, wasn't immediately clear. 

If there's no health situation at play and no one lands on the disabled list, Deven Marrero could be the odd man out.

FOXBORO -- The tweets stacked up on your timeline right around 12:30 this afternoon. Jimmy Garoppolo threw two interceptions -- again.

What the 140 characters didn’t tell you was how they happened, or why.

The first was a wounded duck that had very little chance of success, save for the fact that Justin Coleman completely impeded Chris Hogan’s ability to compete for the ball (read: defensive pass interference). Safety Jordan Richards poached the ball as it fluttered to earth and the media tent started chirping.

The second came two throws later. Garoppolo zipped a ball to the back hip/shoulder of Devin Lucien in the end zone. Lucien initially had it, but a diving Eric Rowe ripped it from his hands for Rowe’s second pick of Garoppolo in two days.

“Whenever you throw an interception, whether it’s your testing someone out and giving a guy a chance, you never want to throw an int in the first place,” said Garoppolo after practice today.

Those INTs came on the heels of two interceptions yesterday. The first -- snagged by Richards -- was almost certainly a ball Garoppolo would never have thrown in a real game. That's a point that Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have hammered over and over in the last 17 years, that these day in late July and August, are a time for testing both yourself and your teammates.

“You always try to do the right thing in practice, but practice is also that time, especially in training camp,” noted Garoppolo, “ to try to give an opportunity to who you maybe wouldn’t in the regular season. It’s a time to gain trust in your teammates and give a guy an opportunity.”

Lucien had that opportunity today and had it wrestled away from him. Note taken and file saved. Maybe next time, Garoppolo -- or Brady, or Jacoby Brissett -- go a different direction. Or they hammer the point home.
