Britton promoted; Salem's Doyle demoted

WARD TO SHARKS CAMP

Haverhill’s Brian Ward, who is playing at St. Lawrence, is headed to the San Jose Sharks development camp in San Jose. Camp begins today.

DOYLE DEMOTED

Salem High graduate and Red Sox minor league right-handed pitcher Terry Doyle was sent from Triple-A Pawtucket to Double-A Portland.

Doyle was 5-6 with a 5.60 ERA in 18 games, 11 starts (80.1 innings) for Pawtucket.

BRITTON PROMOTED

Red Sox minor league left-handed pitcher Drake Britton recently was promoted from Double-A Portland to Triple-A Pawtucket and will start Tuesday at Leigh Valley.

The 24-year-old Britton posted a 7-6 record with a 3.51 ERA in 17 games, 16 starts for Portland and made the Eastern League All-Star team. He recorded 80 strikeouts in 97.1 innings pitched.

During spring training, Britton, who is on Boston’s 40 man-roster, was charged with driving under the influence, reckless driving and property damage.

EMBRACE IGINLA

I’ve heard some people say the Bruins shouldn’t have even considered signing Jarome Iginla after he picked Pittsburgh over Boston at the trade deadline.

That decision backfired on Iginla as the Penguins got swept by Boston in the Eastern Conference Finals this past season.

Give Iginla break. He chose Pittsburgh because he thought that organization would give him the best chance to win. And how many of you would have passed up on the opportunity to play with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin if you were in his shoes (or skates)?

“I wasn’t sure if it was going to be an opportunity,” Iginla said, according to ESPNBoston.com. “I wasn’t sure how Peter (Chiarelli) felt or how the Bruins felt about possibly having me. I did ask my agent to explore it and I’m thrilled it’s a chance. The city is an amazing sports city. I have friends who played there and they’re a team year in and year out is extremely competitive and very hard to play against.”
