Report: Gruden didn't want to draft Haskins, overruled by owner Snyder

  Report: Gruden didn't want to draft Haskins, overruled by owner Snyder Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said earlier this week that the team doesn't have a plan at quarterback right now, and his reluctance to play first-round pick Dwayne Haskins has underlined that point. Now, Les Carpenter of the Washington Post has reported that Gruden did not want to draft Haskins with the team's No. 15 overall pick this year. The head coach and his staff apparently preferred a more experienced passer, but they were overruled by team owner Daniel Snyder, Carpenter added. Haskins started for just one full season at Ohio State before entering the NFL draft.

Emma Roche, the nine-year-old Charlottetown girl at the centre of a $22-million lawsuit against the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and one of its doctors, has died.

"It is with the greatest sorrow that Danny and I share the passing of our precious little Emma," Melissa Driscoll, Emma's mother, wrote in a Facebook post.

"She was the light of our lives and we are completely heartbroken. We held her in our arms for the last time this past Sunday at the IWK. She fought so hard to be here, and she brought us so much happiness. We can't imagine life without her."

Canadiens prospect Cole Caufield off to a hot start at Wisconsin

  Canadiens prospect Cole Caufield off to a hot start at Wisconsin It turns out Cole Caufield isn’t going to score two goals in every game he plays with the University of Wisconsin. After scoring twice in each of his first three games Wisconsin, Caufield was held of the scoresheet for the first time Saturday night, but the Badgers still beat the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs 3-1 in front of 13,296 fans at Wisconsin’s Kohl Center. The Canadiens selected Caufield in the first round (15th overall) at this year’s NHL Draft. The Badgers swept their two-game weekend series against the Bulldogs, who are the defending NCAA champions and were ranked No. 3 in U.S. college hockey heading into the weekend.

When she was eight months old, Emma suffered severe brain damage after being seen in hospital for influenza and croup.

After that she needed 24-hour care, according to her parents.

Case was still awaiting trial

In 2012, the family filed a lawsuit against the P.E.I. government, the legal designate of the QEH, and four doctors. Three of the doctors were dropped from the lawsuit in 2016, leaving the P.E.I. government and one doctor as defendants.

In their statements of defence, the defendants said they met the requisite standard of care, have no direct knowledge of her diagnosis and deny all the allegations against them.

The case was still awaiting trial when Emma died. The family's lawyer said the case will continue, with amendments. The funeral for Emma Roche will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. St. Dunstan's Basilica in Charlottetown.
