Sarah Burke, a four-time X-Games champion, has passed away from injuries sustained during a training run last week. She was 29.

The Canadian crashed in Park City, Utah on January 10 and, according to reports, fell into cardiac arrest soon after. She was airlifted to a hospital and underwent surgery to repair a tear in a significant artery before being placed in a medically-induced coma on life support.

Jesus Montero - who hit over .300 and blasted four home runs for the Yankees in 18 regular season games last year - was swapped for 22-year pitching phenom Michael Pineda, who finished 2011 with a 3.74 ERA and 173 strikeouts in 171 innings.

A Chicago Blackhawks fan made the most of his chance at an intermission contest at the United Center. But it had nothing to do with his slap shot in "Shoot The Puck."
