Predators claim former first-round pick Luca Sbisa off waivers
The Carolina Hurricanes claimed Anton Forsberg (EDM), the San Jose Sharks claimed Rudolfs Balcers (OTT) and the New Jersey Devils claimed Eric Comrie (WPG) as well.Forsberg, 28, returns to the organization he played for last season, an interesting move given the Hurricanes did not re-sign him in the offseason. The veteran goaltender has spent time with the Columbus Blue Jackets and Chicago Blackhawks as well but has been limited to minor league duty for most of the past two years. In 2019-20 he played three games for the Hurricanes, posting an .897 save percentage. In the minor leagues, he had a .905.

This week will see the return of 2020 Farmers Insurance winner Marc Leishman as he tries to win the event for the second time in his career. If he achieves that feat, he would be the first golfer since Tiger Woods (2005-08) to earn consecutive tournament victories. Speaking of which: Tiger will not be in attendance at the event — neither will several top-tier golfers — as he recovers from recent back surgery.

Green Week begins: When farmers look too closely at the world market
Farmers want more money for meat and milk. But they are also to blame for the drop in prices.

Canadian Sikhs worry for families in India as farm protests turn violent .
For several days, Karan Singh has been frantically checking the latest news from India where his father and other farmers have been demanding the government repeal new agriculture laws that open more space for private investors. The 25-year-old from Sudbury, Ont., says concern for his father — who farms cotton, wheat and sugar cane in India's northern Punjab state — started in September. That's when Prime Minister Narendra Modi introduced three bills that farmers say will reshape agriculture in the region, and Singh's father and friends joined protests.
