SASKATOON -- Cheerful and self-effacing, there is something distinctly boyish about Ottawa Senators up-and-coming power forward Buddy Robinson. Except that hes six foot five and tips the scales at a whopping 235 pounds. After scoring two goals in two nights during pre-season exhibition games, including Ottawas 4-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Monday, the 22-year-olds chances of making the NHL this year are looking increasingly rosy. With final cuts expected in the coming weeks, some of his fellow rookies are showing stress, but its clear from his broad grin that Robinson is having the time of his life. "Its definitely good to get a few out of the way early," Robinson said. "You dont want to be three or four games into the pre-season without a goal." Senators left-winger Clarke MacArthur, a veteran of eight NHL seasons, said hes impressed that so large a player has the finesse and speed that Robinson displays. "Hes a big body, and when he gets his feet going hes a big horse going down the wall," he said. "Its great to see a young guy like that come in and get a couple goals. Hes making this league look easy." Robinson said he never really considered the possibility of professional hockey, especially when he was a gangly, awkward teenager. At the time his long frame -- and the clumsiness that came with it -- was more hindrance than help. "I had to put some pounds on before I could really use the size to my advantage," Robinson said. While he is known to all as Buddy, even on official rosters, his real name is actually Charles James Robinson III. The nickname was given to him years ago, as a way of reducing confusion as family gatherings. "Sometimes it gets a little confusing, if someone calls you buddy you dont (know) if its your name or if hes a pal," Robinson said. As time passed, Robinson said he realized he has more than raw power at his disposal. "For a big guy Ive always been told I can really move out there," he said. "Thats what I like to focus on. I really want to be able to keep up with the smaller, quicker guys." Despite his modest ambitions, scouts consistently saw potential in Robinson, pushing him to higher and higher levels of play. In 2009 Robinson was noticed by a Hamilton Red Wings scout, and after tryouts found himself playing in the Ontario Major Junior Hockey League. After two seasons, putting up 11 goals in the first and 15 the next, he was transferred to the Nepean Raiders. This OMJHL exposure got him noticed by Lake Superior State in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., and he was offered a scholarship, staying for two years. Robinson caught the eye of Senators assistant general manager Tim Murray during his second year of college, and was offered a college free agent contract. He took the deal and left his college days behind. Senators head coach Paul McLean said hell make his final cuts around Oct. 1, and that so far hes impressed with Robinson. "Hes got good size and skates, and the puck is going in the net for him," he said. "Hes doing a good job." Joe Allen Jersey .

MIAMI -- Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is going from the World Series champions to a team that lost 100 games. Saltalamacchia has agreed to a $21 million, three-year deal with the Miami Marlins, two people familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday. The people confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the contract had not been finalized. Saltalamacchia started the past three seasons for the Boston Red Sox, who were reluctant to offer him a multiyear deal. The switch-hitter batted a career-high .273 with 15 homers, 40 doubles and 65 RBIs last season. He hit .188 in the post-season and was benched during the World Series. The Marlins will count on Saltalamacchia to give their offence a much-needed boost. Miami ranked last in the majors in 2013 in runs and batting, and their catchers batted only .194 and totalled nine home runs, with Jeff Mathis, Rob Brantly and Migueel Olivo sharing the job.dddddddddddd Mathis is expected to return next season as a backup. "Welcome to Miami Jarrod!" Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton tweeted. "Marlins need water thats Salty." Under terms of the agreement with Saltalamacchia, hell make $6 million in 2014, $7 million in 2015 and $8 million in 2016. He becomes by far the highest-paid player for the Marlins, who had the lowest payroll in the NL last season at $45 million and are expected to be in that vicinity in 2014. The 28-year-old Saltalamacchia made $4.5 million last season. Hes the first catcher to agree to a multiyear deal with the Marlins since John Buck, who signed an $18 million, three-year deal in 2011 and was traded a year ago. Saltalamacchia grew up in West Palm Beach, Fla., not far from the Marlins spring training complex in Jupiter. Hes a career .246 hitter with 73 homers in 595 games.
