Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

   VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Alex Wennberg scored the only goal in a shootout and the Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the Vancouver Canucks 2-1 on Thursday night.
   Scott Hartnell had a power-play goal in the third period for the Blue Jackets (20-28-5), who are last in the NHL and were coming off a 5-1 loss in Edmonton on Tuesday.
   Joonas Korpisalo stopped 37 shots for Columbus.
   Linden Vey scored in the first period for Vancouver (20-19-12), which has lost three straight. Ryan Miller made 27 saves.
   Henrik Sedin returned to his spot on Vancouver's top line after missing four games with a shoulder injury.


   PHOENIX (AP) - J.J. Hoover and the Cincinnati Reds argued their salary arbitration case Thursday, with the reliever asking for a raise from $535,000 to $1.4 million and the team arguing for $1,225,000.
   A decision by arbitrators James Oldham, Dan Brent and Sylvia Skratek is expected Friday.
   A 28-year-old right-hander, Hoover was 8-2 with a 2.94 ERA, winning his first seven decisions. As a setup man for closer Aroldis Chapman, he gave up 44 hits and 31 walks in 64 1-3 innings while striking out 52. He allowed three of 12 inherited runners to score and had a streak of 30 games in which he did not give up an earned run.
   Hoover is a candidate to take over as closer this season following Chapman's trade to the New York Yankees.
   Tampa Bay pitcher Drew Smyly won the first decision of the year Thursday and will have a $3.75 million salary rather than $3.2 million.
   Thirteen players remained scheduled for hearings, which run through Feb. 19.
