Hurricanes still interested in Jets' Patrik Laine?

  Hurricanes still interested in Jets' Patrik Laine? The Jets are apparently looking for Brett Pesce and Martin Necas in return for the enigmatic sniper, though obviously trade talks can move in any direction at any time. Laine, 22, may be inconsistent, but he is also one of the best pure goal scorers in the entire NHL. In 305 career games, he has 138 goals, including a 44-goal sophomore campaign. His current contract, a two-year bridge deal signed in 2019, is due to pay him $7.5M this season and expires in the summer. He’ll still be a restricted free agent and in line for a huge raise on any sort of long-term deal, something that he appears not to want to sign with Winnipeg.

Too many mistakes prevented Canadian luge veterans Tristan Walker and Justin Snith from carrying over the momentum of Friday's Nations Cup qualifying victory into Saturday's battle for a podium finish at the Viessmann World Cup.

Instead, the three-time Olympians were forced to settle for 10th place in Oberhof, Germany, after clocking a two-run time of one minute 22.284 seconds in their second race of the season after staying in Canada for the first half of the campaign due to COVID-19 risks.

Boston Bruins name Patrice Bergeron captain

  Boston Bruins name Patrice Bergeron captain Though Bergeron takes his rightful place among the greatest Bruins of all-time, there could potentially be another captain change not too far down the line. He’ll turn 36 in July and is only under contract through the 2021-22 season. While there is obviously plenty of game left in his boots, you never know when he’ll hang them up. Bruins fans should cherish this time with Bergeron donning the “C” before the sweater heads to the Hall of Fame.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Canada , which has two World Cup victories in the team relay all-time, also finished second at last year' s world championship in Whistler Gough, who will be among the Canadians looking to win the country' s first-ever Olympic luge medal in February, said Geisenberger has set the bar extremely high.

"We definitely took a big step forward from [our first week back] in Konigssee World Cup," said the 29-year-old Walker of Cochrane, Alta. "Training went really well this week, but we just had too many mistakes in the race. This shows we are making some good progress on the new sled, but it's still pretty fresh and needs some getting used to."

Snith, 28, and Walker have three top-five finishes in Oberhof over their careers but will use their latest performance as a stepping stone and learning experience ahead of world championships.

This season, Walker and Snith selected four charities — STARS Air Ambulance, Cochrane & Area Humane Society, Kvisle Fund for GBM, and the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund — to profile on their sled in each of their three World Cup and world championship races after losing their personal sponsor due to COVID-19 challenges.

Deadline approaching quickly for restricted free agents

  Deadline approaching quickly for restricted free agents In a normal season, even restricted free agents that miss all of training camp have plenty of time to sign. To be eligible to play, they must have a contract signed and filed with the league by December 1, nearly two months after a normal NHL season begins. Two years ago we saw a negotiation go down to the witching hour between the Toronto Maple Leafs and William Nylander, with the young forward eventually signing a six-year, $45M deal just before the deadline. Nylander was in the lineup by December 6, though he never seemed to get comfortable and ended up having arguably his worst season as a professional.

This week, the Kvisle Fund for GBM sticker adorned their sled, a charity close to Snith.

"The Kvisle Fund for GBM really hits close to home for me because I am personally connected to the Kvisle/Aldous family," he told Canadian Luge Association. "Seeing their fight has inspired me to leverage my position as an Olympian and role model myself for young Canadians, to do more to support the Kvisle Fund in their fight to improve care and outcomes for patients and families facing a Glioblastoma Multiforme brain cancer diagnosis.

"I am very proud to be able to use our platform to bring additional awareness to charities in this country that are doing important work in our communities, especially during these challenging times."

Steu and Koller now have a 96-point lead over Germany's Toni Eggert and Sascha Benecken with three races left in the overall standings. A German sled, either Wendl and Arlt or Eggert and Benecken, has won the overall World Cup title in each of the last eight seasons, a streak now in jeopardy.

Steu and Koller would be mathematically certain of winning the title simply by finishing third or better in each of the final three World Cup races.

The women's race in Oberhof is Sunday.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Reid Watts was the lone Canadian to qualify for the men's singles race. The 2018 Olympian, who hails from Whistler, B.C., finished 21st in 1:26.516.

Germany's Felix Loch set the time to beat at 1:25.380, followed by Jonas Mueller (1:25.627) and Austrian teammate David Gleirscher (1:25.823).

Felix Loch is about to reclaim his title as World Cup luge overall champion.

The two-time Olympic champion from Germany is now virtually assured of claiming the season-long men's overall title for the seventh time after dominating yet another race Saturday. He was a quarter-second faster than Austria's Jonas Mueller for the win, his eighth in nine races this season.

Austria's David Gleirscher was third in Oberhof, Germany, one spot ahead of Germany's Johannes Ludwig.

Loch now has 855 standings points with three World Cup races left, 290 points ahead of Ludwig -- with a maximum of 300 points remaining to be claimed this season. Loch basically needs to just finish one of the season's final races to clinch the points title, no matter what Ludwig does.

Chris Mazdzer was the top American, placing 20th. Reid Watts of Whistler, B.C., was 21st.
