Canadian Sports Update

The Winnipeg Jets will open their regular season as hosts to the 2-and-0 New York Rangers at Canada Life Centre today. Winnipeg will be looking to build on its 4-1and-1 in pre-season against the Eastern Conference finalist Rangers, who are coming off a 7-3 win over the Minnesota Wild last night.


Coming off a thrilling 4-3 season-opening win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday, the Montreal Canadiens head to Detroit to take on the Red Wings tonight. The young Canadiens will look to be building on a solid start with another victory after going winless in pre-season play and finishing last in the N-H-L last season.


Former Supreme Court justice Thomas Cromwell recommended wholesale changes at Hockey Canada a day before the organization's C-E-O and board resigned. In a 103-page interim report, and memo, released by Hockey Canada yesterday, Cromwell told the sporting body that there is “no serious debate” its leadership has lost the confidence of important stakeholders and that calls for change will need to be answered. Hockey Canada's board resigned Tuesday but is set to remain until a new board is elected at an annual general meeting on December 17th.


The Calgary Stampeders welcome the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to McMahon Stadium tonight as they hope to leap past the B-C Lions in the West Division standings. Both tied at 10-and-5 with a tiebreaker keeping B-C ahead in second, Calgary now has its chance to finally move ahead as the Lions will have quite the test in facing the league-leading Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday.


The Montreal Alouettes hit the road to play the Redblacks with eyes on returning to the win column and avenging last week's 24-18 loss to Ottawa. At 7-and-8, Montreal is just two games ahead of Hamilton and has yet to clinch a playoff spot with only two more contests remaining following this week.


Canada's Felix Auger-Aliassime  will be taking on eighth-seeded Brandon Nakashima in the Firenze Open quarterfinals today. The Montreal native, who is the top seed in the event, defeated Germany's Oscar Otte in three sets yesterday to move on.
