October 10, 2018 10:03 PM Auston Matthews has forced himself into the greatest-player-in-the-world conversation

Auston Matthews is on pace for 143.5 goals this season, but if anybody offers a wager, take the under. John Tavares is on pace for 123, but the same rule applies. The last time two teammates scored at least six goals in their first four games one of them was named Wayne Gretzky, and the other merely reached the Hall of Fame. It’s a good start. Look, the Toronto 7

September 21, 2018 4:00 PM Here’s a TV show that’s dealing with #MeToo, fame and forgiveness in an intelligent manner

There was Jian Ghomeshi’s tone-deaf feint toward atonement in the New York Review of Books, followed by Isaac Chotiner’s delicate vivisection of the Review’s editor, Ian Buruma, on Slate. Asked why he published Ghomeshi — and made the essay part of a package issue called “The Fall of Men” — Buruma stubbornly stuck to his older-white-male line. Because 13

September 16, 2018 8:59 PM Raonic seals Canada’s Davis Cup win over Netherlands

Raonic, No. 20 on the ATP Tour, was the highest-ranked player in the tie. Despite being a lopsided matchup on paper, Griekspoor came out strong, taking a 3-1 lead in the first set. Raonic leaned more and more on his big serve, firing nine aces to Griekspoor’s one to battle back and take the set. Raonic took firm control of the match in the second set. He added 13

September 14, 2018 11:02 PM Delta Prince enters $800,000 Woodbine Mile as the early favourite

Vanish was coming off an allowance win when claimed for $40,000 from the stable of Hall of Fame trainer Mark Casse. The move paid immediate dividends as Vanish rallied to finish second to Mr Havercamp — who’ll start Saturday’s race from the No. 5 post — in the Grade 2 Play the King Stakes turf race at 54/1 odds. “The turf was soft, he was slipping and sliding 16

September 5, 2018 4:43 PM Alvin ‘Ab’ McDonald, the first Winnipeg Jets captain, dies at age 82

“He’s a four-time Stanley Cup winner and was the captain on many teams, and our first captain here in Winnipeg. Just a tremendous guy who was looked up to by many. “And he loved Winnipeg. He came home every summer from playing hockey. He was just a guy who liked people.” McDonald also played with the Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins 18

September 2, 2018 11:00 AM Tabloids: Everyone’s so happy together, except Duchess Meghan

Cover: An unofficial backyard commitment ceremony for Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston wasn’t so low-key that Pitt’s six kids with Angelina Jolie were excluded. (It remains to be seen how Jolie, familiar with both kinds of commitment, will take this.) They’ll honeymoon on the Italian Riviera, In Touch suggests, but there will be nowhere they can hide from America’s 17

August 7, 2018 8:30 PM Blackhawks legend Stan Mikita dead at 78

He was named one of the top 100 NHL players of all time by The Canadian Press in 2017. Mikita remains the only NHL player in history to win the Art Ross (scoring champion), Hart (MVP) and Lady Byng (sportsmanship) trophies in the same season, and he accomplished the feat in consecutive years in 1967 and 1968. He became the first player to have his jersey 17

August 5, 2018 11:00 AM Tabloids: Magazines manufacture Meghan Markle maternity

Cover: Summon the trumpeters and town criers, for Meghan, Duchess of Sussex is with child! You heard it here first — that is, if you didn’t read the same rumour when it ran in In Touch in July, Life & Style in June and, oddly, OK! previously, back last October. One company, American Media, owns all these mags now, so I guess they just take turns repeating 15

July 29, 2018 11:35 PM Dustin Johnson captures Canadian Open

A Canadian has not won the national title since Victoria’s Pat Fletcher accomplished the feat in 1954. Johnson entered the day in a four-way tie for the lead with Kim, Hun An and Kevin Tway but had seven birdies and a bogey to pull away from the group. A nearby lightning storm delayed play for an hour and 45 minutes and shrunk the massive crowd that usually 18

July 20, 2018 12:08 AM Jayna Hefford named as Canadian Women’s Hockey League’s interim commissioner

Five-time Olympian and Hockey Hall of Fame inductee Jayna Hefford has been appointed interim commissioner of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League. Hefford will officially assume the role on Aug. 1, but began working with former commissioner Brenda Andress on the transition process on Thursday. “I am honoured and excited to step into this role with the support 14
