Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Paul Molitor will be the new manager of the Minnesota Twins. The Twins said the Hall of Famer has agreed to a three-year contract through the 2017 season and will be officially introduced on Tuesday. Molitor will become just the third manager for the franchise since 1986, following Tom Kelly and the recently fired Ron Gardenhire. The 58-year-old St. Paul native and University of Minnesota product finished his Hall of Fame playing career with his hometown team from 1996-98 and was a coach on Gardenhires staff last year after previously serving as bench coach for Kelly in 2000 and 2001. This will be Molitors first managerial job at any level. After 10 years in the Minnesota organization as a minor league infield and base running coordinator, he joined Gardenhires staff last year to coach infield, base running and bunting, then moved to first base coach in July when Joe Vavra suffered a hip injury. Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2004, Molitor played a combined 21 seasons for the Brewers, Blue Jays and Twins. He had a career .306 batting average with 234 home runs and 1,307 RBI. His 3,319 career hits are good enough for 10th on the all-time list, while his 605 career doubles rank 11th all-time. He was a seven-time All-Star and the MVP of the 1993 World Series with Toronto. After his two-year stint as a coach on Kellys staff, Molitor served as hitting coach for the Seattle Mariners in 2004. Gardenhire was fired after the Twins finished 70-92 in 2014, the clubs fourth straight losing season. He led Minnesota to the postseason six times during his 13-year tenure, finishing with a record of 1,068-1,039. Kelly took over at the end of the 1986 campaign and guided the Twins to a pair of World Series titles during his 15 full seasons. Rashaad Penny Jersey .

Montreal traded Grabovski early in his NHL career, but it was in his five seasons with Toronto that he "grew up" as a hockey player. After Grabovski was bought out by the Maple Leafs last summer, his former teammates expect him to be fired up when the Washington Capitals visit Air Canada Centre on Saturday night. "Im sure hell be wanting to put on a good show here in Toronto," centre Tyler Bozak said. "Hell want to play well, for sure. Hopefully we can hold him to a minimum out there. Hes going to be going hard." Good friend Nikolai Kulemin expects Grabovski is "going to play harder against us than any other teams." This after things went poorly in his final season in Toronto, culminating with his profanity-filled ripping of coach Randy Carlyle in an interview with TSN Radio 1050 after being bought out. Kulemin said Grabovski was a little nervous before getting married when he went off on Carlyle. Defenceman Carl Gunnarsson said Friday he thought Grabovski did all right last year in spite of some adversity. "I guess he wasnt happy with how he played or how they used him in games," Gunnarsson said. "But even though going out to the media like that might not be the right answer to it. Thats up to him. I dont think anyone would happy to be bought out like that." Grabovski said this week hes comfortable with his role on the Capitals, centring the third line between Jason Chimera and Joel Ward. Coach Adam Oates more offensive-minded system fits him better than Carlyles, so hes happy to have a fresh start. But that doesnt mean hes not at least "a little bit excited" to return to Toronto and face the Leafs. "Its motivation to play in the place where you play like a hometown," Grabovski told reporters at the Capitals practice facility Thursday. "Five years in the city. I feel like I have a lot of friends, a lot of family, I know a lot of people, so for me its like hometown. I can say I grew up in this place." Grabbovski played 340 games with the Leafs, putting up 91 goals and 118 assists.dddddddddddd He thrived under coach Ron Wilson and along the way earned a US$27.5-million, five-year contract. Carlyle used Grabovski in more defensive spots than he was used to, and the relationship soured. Even with the hard feelings, Grabovski said this week that Carlyle and his staff helped him become a better defensive and more disciplined player. Prompted Saturday with a question about Grabovski airing his grievances on the way out, Carlyle laughed it off with a profanity. "Im not here to comment on players comments," Carlyle said. "Players make comments, they have their own agenda. My agenda here is as weve stated when it happened, we thank him for his time here, wish him all the best and were moving on. Simple as that." On coaching against Grabovski, Carlyle said: "Hes another player. I dont focus on Grabovski, I focus on the Washington Capitals." Grabovski has been a big part of the Capitals success this season. With seven goals and 12 assists, Grabovski is third on the team in points, behind only top-line stars Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom. After feeling "terrible" about the buyout, the 29-year-old said he feels "excellent" in Washington. Thats a welcome development for his former teammates. "Hes found a place where he fits in well," Bozak said. "We know hes a great player and a good friend of all of ours. Hes having a great year, and were happy for him." NOTES -- Leafs defenceman Mark Fraser is expected to return to the lineup after missing the past two games with a knee injury. Morgan Rielly is expected to be a healthy scratch. ... Centre Tyler Bozak will miss his 11th straight game with a hamstring injury. Carlyle said he was very surprised Bozak was not available against the Capitals because he was "fully counting" on him being ready. ... After losing 3-2 to the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night, the Capitals are tweaking their lineup. Martin Erat is expected to be a healthy scratch, and hell be replaced by Eric Fehr who hasnt played since Nov. 2.
