compiler error with try/catch block code with URL constructor

I have reviewed and re-reviewed my code and I have watched the video twice now. I can't seem to figure out the error I am getting. Here is my code: ''' package com.example;

import android.os.Bundle; import android.view.View; import java.net.MalformedURLException; import android.util.Log;

public class MainListActivity extends ListActivity {

public static final String teamtreehouseUrl = "teamtreehouse.com";

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    try {
       URL treehouseUrl = new URL(teamtreehouseUrl);
    catch (MalformedURLException e) {       


} ''' Please help.
