Most fans of hockey probably don’t know if there is hockey being played in China.

There must be some potential hockey players coming out of that country because the New York Islanders just selected an up-and-coming star in the recent draft.

Andong Song, a 6’0” forward who was born in Beijing, became the first Chinese-born player selected in the NHL Draft when the Islanders picked him in the sixth round (172nd overall).

“I am the first,” he said. “Hopefully what I want to do is rally people behind me. Not focus on myself but do something good for Chinese hockey.”

The 18-year-old Song, who is Beijing, China, says he patterns his game after Nicklas Lidstrom, former star defenseman of the Detroit Red Wings.

The Islanders noticed Song playing at Lawrenceville School in New Jersey. In 26 games this past season, he scored 7 goals with 26 assists and 33 points.

Song says he wants to play for an NCAA hockey team. He is expected to enroll in a prep school during the 2015-16 season.

The United States Golf Association informed the media that the 14-year-old from China has withdrawn from the sectional qualifier on June 3 in Dallas, Texas.

But in Cincinnati last week, she finally won to earn a check for $385.000 and became at age 30, the oldest woman to win the tournament across the street from Kings Island amusement park at the Lindner Family Tennis Center.

Li Na, who also goes by Na Li, rallied from a very poor start to run talented German Angelique Kerber off the tennis court, 1-6, 6-3, 6-1 in the final round.

A coaching change has certainly helped Li Na. She recently began working with Carlos Rodriguez, the former coach for Justine Henin.

Currently ranked in the world at #9, Li Na has won 73.31% of her matches with a record of 432-162 and has 6 WTA titles to her credit.
