January 15, 2019 12:26 AM Avalanche fortunate not to have been buried in the West during slide

“It’s a tough test for us right now, what we’re going through,” Landeskog said. “A lot of guys in this dressing room haven’t gone through things like this at this level. Last year, we didn’t have a stretch like this of six weeks without a whole lot of wins. We have to stick together.” The Leafs, by comparison, had earned 12 points since Dec. 19. If they had earned 91

January 12, 2019 11:07 PM Raptors’ reserves are finally settling into their roles

It was a stellar night that included 22-of-44 shooting from the field, six three-pointers in 15 attempts, 16 rebounds and only two combined turnovers. The combination of VanVleet and Wright seems to be rounding into the same form that made them so dangerous last season. They had 22 points and eight assists between them but, most important, they were flying 41

January 12, 2019 12:59 AM New Toronto Raptor Patrick McCaw keeping things in perspective

Patrick McCaw, the free-agent guard who officially signed with the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night, knows that better than most. The 23-year-old former Golden State Warrior suffered a particularly scary bone bruise when he was undercut by Vince Carter in a game against the Sacramento Kings last April. McCaw landed hard on his back and was stretchered 42

January 11, 2019 10:21 PM New York Yankees agree to deal with Gold Glover D.J. LeMahieu

The 30-year-old LeMahieu spent the previous eight seasons with Colorado at hitter-friendly Coors Field and won the NL batting title in 2016 with a .348 average. He hit .276 last year with 15 homers and 62 RBIs, and he won his second straight Gold Glove and third overall. New York was seeking infielders in the absence of shortstop Didi Gregorius, who is recovering 42

January 10, 2019 6:48 PM Vancouver Island centre back Callum Montgomery could go high in MLS SuperDraft

After sending out a flood of emails to universities, the defender from Lantzville, B.C., didn’t get much of a response other than local U.S. options like the University of Washington and Seattle University. While he impressed at a Stanford University ID camp, his grades weren’t good enough. But a connection was made. Stanford coach Jeremy Gunn, a former 22

January 10, 2019 2:14 AM Raptors adding to depth at guard with former Warrior Patrick McCaw

He would appear to be a solid fit for the Raptors, who can assume his minimum salary without any significant tax implications and who have a need for a promising backcourt player. Toronto waived guard Lorenzo Brown earlier this week and filling that hole with a proven NBA player makes sense, providing depth behind Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, Norm Powell 24

January 9, 2019 6:03 PM Heavyweight Ryan Reaves-Adam McQuaid scrap a microcosm of NHL fighting debate

According to statistics on hockeyfights.com, only 18.9 per cent of games this season have had a fighting major on the scoresheet. In 2017-18, 17.9 per cent of games had fights. Compare that to five seasons ago (2013-14) when 29.8 per cent of NHL games had fights, or 10 seasons ago (2008-09) when it was at 41.4 per cent. With the all-star break two weeks 22

January 9, 2019 6:44 AM Kane, Donskoi each score two goals as Sharks pummel Oilers

SAN JOSE, CALIF.—Evander Kane and Joonas Donskoi each scored two goals, Erik Karlsson had three assists again and the San Jose Sharks defeated the Edmonton Oilers 7-2 on Tuesday night. Marcus Sorensen, Brent Burns and Joe Thornton also scored for San Jose, which has won four straight and six of seven — totalling 36 goals during that stretch. The Sharks 22

January 8, 2019 11:10 PM Hey Vince Carter, nice to see you again. Welcome home

The last time Vince Carter was a Toronto Raptor YouTube hadn’t been invented yet, among other things, which is a little like Dorothy Parker existing before Twitter. On Tuesday, Vince returned to Toronto again, on a seventh different team since he left his greatest and only enduring NBA home. He is 41 years old, all of a sudden. Is this the last time he comes 32

January 8, 2019 1:17 AM Carey Price to skip NHL all-star weekend

Price participated in the all-star game in 2009, 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2017. The 31-year-old from Anahim Lake, B.C., has a 16-11-4 record this season, with a 2.76 goals-against average, and a .908 save percentage. He earned his 300th career NHL win Dec. 20 at Arizona.
