December 11, 2018 3:37 AM Star goalie Mike DiPietro gets second chance at world juniors dream

While Ottawa got the OHL’s No. 1-ranked goalie, Windsor took forward Egor Afanaseyev and a series of draft picks. The move gives DiPietro a shot at Memorial Cup run with the streaking 67’s, but leaving his family, friends and the team he’s grown up with isn’t easy. “I’m just approaching this as a really long road trip,” he said. “It’s something that’s 6

December 8, 2018 11:23 PM Improving the starting rotation is Blue Jays’ main focus

Randal Grichuk: The Jays’ trade for the outfielder last January may not have looked great when he hit .106 in the first 25 games of the season and landed on the disabled list by May 1. But the 27-year-old came back in June a new player, hitting a near career-high .271 in the final four months. He finished with a team-high 25 home runs and 61 RBIs, and played 7

Sabres forward Jeff Skinner ranked second in the NHL with 20 goals entering Monday’s games. He’s the second Sabre player ever to score 20 before December, joining Rick Martin, and has 15 in his last 15 games.

“Everyone wants to get back in and get playing right away. We still have to play the long game with him. It’s a six-year contract,” said Dubas. “We don’t want to rush to get him on Tuesday, or potentially Thursday and have that forgo his health and well being. We’ll get all that taken care of, and hopefully in the next week or so he’ll be back in action 13

The depth of the Leafs’ lineup — even in the absence of restricted free-agent William Nylander, and during Auston Matthews’ absence with a shoulder injury — goes a long way. The Leafs have four lines built on speed, skill and puck control, allowing Marner a bit more room to freelance than others. “We’re not three or four guys dangerous; we’re three and four lines 14

Roeg’s last major film was “The Witches,” in 1990, which starred Anjelica Huston. He worked his way into directing after winning acclaim as a cinematographer.
