The Braves lost 13 prospects and former general manager John Coppolella was banned for life by Major League Baseball on Tuesday for circumventing international signing rules from 2015 to 2017.
Former Atlanta special assistant Gordon Blakeley, who was the team’s international scouting chief, was suspended from baseball for one year by commissioner Rob Manfred.
“As we expressed last week, our organization has not lived up to the standard our fans expect from us and that we expect from ourselves. For that, we apologize. We are instituting the changes necessary to prevent this from ever happening again and remain excited about the future of Braves baseball.”
It was the 100th career goal for Schwartz, who had three points.
“Good to hit it but obviously I want to get a lot more,” Schwartz said. “It’s exciting. I never imagined doing that as a young kid.”
A goal by Schenn from the slot made it 4-0 with 19 seconds left in the period. Schwartz fed Schenn with a pass and he one-timed the puck by Brossoit.
Edmonton cut it to 4-1 when Milan Lucic scored at 6:09 of the third. St. Louis got the goal back when Scottie Upshall scored from just outside the crease on a pass from Chris Thorburn at 7:39.
The Packers did attempt four deep passes and Hundley was unable to connect each time. The longest gain of the night came on a short pass to Randall Cobb, who sprinted upfield for a 46-yard gain that included 34 yards after the catch. Cobb had five catches for 58 yards and his run-and-catch led to a Packers touchdown, but after the game was out of reach.
