Royals try hockey in Sweden

Britain’s Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge took a shot at bandy Tuesday to kick off a visit to Sweden and Norway — with William winning a penalty shootout in the game, a Swedish sport similar to ice hockey.

Kate, who is pregnant with her third child, was beaten in a penalty shootout by her husband when they joined a group of young Swedes playing the game on an outdoor ice rink in downtown Stockholm.

The duchess is an accomplished hockey player and was a member of her school and university teams.

Former ‘Glee’ actor found dead

Mark Salling, who played bad-boy Noah “Puck” Puckerman in the hit musical-comedy Glee, died of an apparent suicide Tuesday, weeks after pleading guilty to possessing child pornography. He was 35.

Salling pleaded guilty in December after authorities said a search of his computer and a thumb drive found more than 50,000 images of child porn. He was scheduled to be sentenced March 7, and prosecutors planned to ask a judge to send him to prison for four to seven years.

A law enforcement official not authorized to speak publicly said Salling was found hanging in a riverbed area in the Tujunga neighborhood of Los Angeles. Ed Winter, assistant chief investigator for the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, said the death is being investigated as a suicide.

Chris Christie hired by ABC News

Chris Christie does not think President Donald Trump should sit down face to face with special prosecutor Robert Mueller.

The former Republican governor of New Jersey spoke Tuesday during his first appearance as a political contributor for ABC News. Christie was characterized on Good Morning America as a friend and adviser to President Donald Trump.

Christie said he doesn’t think there have been any credible allegations against Trump. But Christie said Mueller is not someone “to be trifled with.”
