KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- American teenager Lexi Thompson shot a 2-under 69 on Sunday to win the LPGA Malaysia title by four strokes. Chidobe Awuzie Jersey . The 18-year-old, who won her second career LPGA title and first of the season, finished on 19-under 265 to end the South Korean dominance at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. Chinese star Feng Shanshan was second after a 67, while Ilhee Lee, the leader after the first two rounds, tied for third with second-ranked Suzann Pettersen another three strokes back. Thompson also won the Navistar LPGA Classic 2011. "Words cant even describe the feeling I have right now," said Thompson. "Its sort of like a rerun from Navistar, just having that feeling walking up to the 18th green, embracing the fans and just knowing you have the win under your belt. "Its very big, I have worked so hard between this whole last year since Navistar, it pays off and means so much to me." South Koreas Amy Yang was fifth, nine shots off the pace. Sandra Gal of Germany, who shot a 66 in the final round, finished with a share of sixth alongside Chella Choi, Alison Walshe, Stacy Lewis, Beatriz Recari and Karine Icher. Thompson began the day atop the leaderboard, leading nearest rival Lee of South Korea by three strokes, but the comfortable margin was down to two after the first nine as Lee made her move. Lee picked up two back-to-back birdies on No. 7 and No. 8. "She (Lee) made a few birdies in that stretch of holes that I missed a few birdies putts. It got really close," said Thompson, who bogeyed the 2nd to drop a shot. "It was hard to grasp because I actually hit some really good putts and they just lipped out unfortunately." Pressure on Thompson eased a little when Lee bogeyed the ninth hole. On the back nine, Thompson came back strongly and fired three straight birdies to put her back in a comfortable position. "Those were big. No. 10, I just hit a close wedge shot and made like a 4-footer, but the birdie actually on 11 was really unexpected," she said. "But those are always huge in a tournament, getting into the next hole and always pumping yourself up to make more birdies out there." She added another birdie on 16th to close in on the title she went on to clinch despite a bogey on the next.

It is unclear how long Kallstrom, who was brought in to alleviate the teams midfield problems, will be sidelined. Arsenals communications director, Mark Gonnella, says the club decided to proceed with Kallstroms signing despite the injury.In a draft day surprise, the Vancouver Canucks relieved their goaltending logjam in a surprising manner. Numbers Game looks at the deal sending Cory Schneider to New Jersey. The Devils Get: G Cory Schneider. Schneider, 27, has a save percentage of .931 over the last three seasons, best among goaltenders with at least 75 games and was expected to be the Vancouver Canucks goaltender of the future, but their inability to move out Roberto Luongo and his sizeable contract, left a Schneider deal as the only viable solution to Vancouvers financial and goaltending concerns. However, for a variety of reasons, Schneider is a 27-year-old that has yet to play even 35 games in an NHL season and if hes going to be a top-tier starting goaltender, its about time to take on a starters workload and maintain the high level of play hes established in his limited NHL playing time. In New Jersey, the Devils have Martin Brodeur, who has been the backbone of the franchise for nearly two decades, but Brodeur has a .905 save percentage over the last three seasons, which ranks 29th out of 31 goaltenders to have played at least 100 games, and hes 41-years-old, so its entirely understandable that the Devils are looking to upgrade. The question is how will the Devils allocate playing time next season? Its the final year of Brodeurs contract and, based on recent play, Schneider has to be the starter. If Schneider gets 55-60 games next year, that would leave Brodeur with his fewest games played since 1991-1992 (though 29 games in a lockout-shortened 2013 season is his lowest since too). Additionally, veteran Johan Hedberg has another year left on his contract, at a $1.4-million cap hit, and he struggled in 2012-2013 (posting an .883 save percentage), but Hedberg could be moved to a team seeking a veteran backup goaltender though, at that price, the Devils may need to eat some of the salary in order to make Hedberg a more palatable option. Goaltending was such a problem last season for New Jersey, a team that had some of the best possession numbers but also the 28th-ranked save percentage in the league, so its possible that Schneider could solve tthat issue. Darren McFadden Jersey. New Jersey currently has tons of cap room, but is a team with financial concerns and some high-profile pending free agents, including Patrik Elias and David Clarkson. If they depart, that could affect those strong possession stats going forward. Schneider is under contract for a couple more seasons, at a cap hit of $4.0-million, leaving New Jersey with $9.9-million tied in to three goalies. That may just be a short-term issue, since the Devils dont appear to be a cap team for next season and both Brodeur and Hedberg are heading into the final year of their respective contracts. So long as Schneider makes it as a bona fide starting goaltender, the Devils have to be very happy with this deal. The uncertainty of a ninth overall pick (from 1994-2008, six of 15 ninth picks would be considered fringe NHLers or worse) makes the cost quite reasonable for an established NHLer who still has a chance to be a star. The Canucks Get: The ninth overall pick (used to take C Bo Horvat). Horvat is a highly-regarded two-way player, who scored 33 goals and 61 points in 67 regular season games for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, adding 16 goals and 23 points in 21 playoff games. Hes a two-way centre who had some offensive upside and gives the Canucks some much-needed forward talent in the organization. At the same time, Horvat isnt necessarily providing immediate help. He could use time to improve his skating and a year of strong production in the OHL may give him a better chance to make an impact when he does arrive in the NHL. Provided he reconciles himself to the idea of returning to Vancouver, Roberto Luongo should be back in line for 60-plus starts next season. In 20 games last season, Luongo had a .907 save percentage, his lowest since .904 in 1999-2000, his rookie season. With a .919 save percentage in 747 career games, however, Luongo should be expected to play well as a starter for at least a few more seasons.
