Wayne Gretzky says he is unsure about his hockey future. "You know what, I don't know what the future holds for me," he told ESPN.com on Wednesday. "I honestly don't know." The NHL lost Gretzky in September when he stepped down as coach of the Coyotes. He has kept a low profile since and is enjoying life back in Los Angeles with his family. For now, hockey is on the back burner. "I love the game," Gretzky said. "Yeah, there are days I really miss it. But the reality is everything happens for a reason and I don't see myself doing anything for at least a year and a half."

Shelby Mercer and her Century field hockey teammates needed only the motivation of a county championship to refocus Monday as they came off a loss that ended a nine-game winning streak. Knocking off No. 10 Westminster, which had won the past two county titles and six of seven overall, took precedence over everything else. So the No. 9 Knights started with a high level of intensity and held it throughout most of the game, beating the Owls, 2-1, to clinch the county title. Century (10-2-1, 6-0 county)

I want my wedding to be just as perfect as possible, but I want my marriage to be even better.  People get so wrapped up in wedding planning that they sometimes forget why they are there in the first place. Keith and I have been together for almost 5 years; he is the love of my life and my best friend.  May 10, 2014, will be a day that many of our friends and family will see as a special event or a big party, but for us it's the first day of the rest of our lives and the start of our own family.  Even though it is easy to get caught up with all the planning, I think it is important to take time to just be us and do things that we enjoyed doing before we were engaged.

It should come as no surprise that a South River-Severna Park field hockey game ended with a one-goal difference. What is surprising is how the No. 5 Falcons (10-2) were able to carry the play for most of the game in their 2-1 victory over the No. 4 Seahawks (8-3) on Tuesday at Kinder Farm Park. Cassy Zachares and Lauren Duvall scored second-half goals for Severna Park, which erased a 1-0 halftime deficit by taking 11 shots in the second half and won its third straight game since losses to the Seahawks and Cape Henlopen (Del.)

The Archbishop Spalding boys ice hockey team has a habit of playing a lot of close games and ending up on the right side of the score. The Cavaliers beat Mount St. Joseph on Friday by one goal to capture the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Assertion A Conference championship. And Tuesday night, John Sage (two goals) scored the game-winner shorthanded with 1:51 left in the game on a breakaway as Spalding (11-1-2) beat St. Albans, 3-2, in the first round of the Mid Atlantic Prep Hockey League tournament.

Defending Olympic hockey champion Sweden was sent home in the quarterfinals by emerging power Slovakia. Russia, expected to score its way to a gold medal, was run out of town by Canada. Few events in this tournament have gone according to form, starting with host Canada's straining to beat Switzerland and stumbling against the U.S. in the first round, which sent the team to a qualifying game that stressed an entire nation. But each of the four teams that will meet in the semifinals today at Canada Hockey Place has displayed one consistent trait through 10 pressure-packed days here.

After patiently sitting along a back wall for nearly a half hour, 10-year-old Kaenetra Everett could finally test the new hockey equipment sitting neatly in the corner of the gymnasium. "This is the first time they've brought hockey to this community so that we can play," Everett said after practicing faceoffs, shooting and passing with her friends. "For practice, I think I did good." The equipment arrived at Robert C. Marshall Recreation Center in West Baltimore's Upton neighborhood Wednesday as part of NHL Street, a league-wide program which brings street hockey to children ages 6-16 in cities where ice rinks may not be available.

Negotiations to replace the departing Skipjacks have reached an impasse, placing the future of professional hockey in Baltimore in jeopardy once again.Whether Baltimore retains hockey next season could come down to three issues: Does Centre Management want hockey in the Baltimore Arena?

And will the Washington Capitals give their blessing to a new team in the area?Ed Anderson, would-be owner of an East Coast Hockey League team, and Gary Handleman, vice president for facilities at Centre Management, have been unable to reach a lease agreement for the Baltimore Arena in negotiations that began March 30.Now, time is running out on Anderson and the Baltimore Hockey Advocates, a group of local businessmen trying to keep hockey here.

Madi Hall said she's part of Century's backup plan, just in case the Knights have to tangle with quality opponents and scoring is at a premium. So there she was late in the second half Monday, doing whatever she could to keep the ball from trickling into her team's cage while Manchester Valley tried furiously to mount a comeback. The senior's stick save on a loose ball with about 15 minutes to play was just one of a few defensive stops the Knights made during their 2-1 win, a victory that knocked the Mavericks from their share of first place in the Carroll County field hockey standings.

An icy dream dawned six months ago in a rink near Chicago, where candidates for the U.S. Olympic hockey team took the first steps of a journey that will end a few hours before the flame is extinguished on the Vancouver Games. A week later the same dream was planted in Calgary among prospective members of Team Canada, who have shouldered the hopes of a nation that considers hockey a way of life and not merely a diversion. The U.S. and Canada will compete Sunday at Canada Hockey Place for the Olympic gold medal, pitting NHL teammates against each other in a rivalry that has become, to Canadians' chagrin, increasingly even.
