CALGARY -- The defending Olympic womens bobsled champions are back in the same sled once again. Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse will reunite at this weekends season-opening World Cup at Canada Olympic Park as they begin their buildup to the Winter Games in Sochi. Humphries won a world title last year and has reached the podium at 13 straight events. Moyse, who competed in track cycling and rugby while taking a break from bobsled, has returned in top form after undergoing hip surgery a year ago. The veteran brakeman from Summerside, P.E.I., has set personal-best start times since coming back and won a push challenge event last weekend. She also set a new start record during selection races in Whistler, B.C. "That just made me excited about what I can possibly contribute and what I can give back to this team this year," Moyse said in a recent interview. "Because of that excitement and being named to the team as Canada 1 and being put into Kaillies sled, I think that excitement is just transcending. "Kaillie and I are both really excited about what we can do and what we can possibly experience this year." Humphries and Moyse first started sliding together in January 2009 and won Olympic gold a year later. Off and on, they have spent about 2 1/2 years together as a duo. They were all smiles after two practice runs on Thursday. "It went straight to comfortable mode," Humphries said of being back with her old partner. "I know shes in the best shape shes ever been in and its really exciting going into this season." Humphries, from Calgary, won the overall World Cup title last season with Chelsea Valois of Zenon Park, Sask. Valois will team with Edmontons Jenny Ciochetti in the Canada 2 sled for the season opener. Moyse suffered a serious ankle injury at the 2010 Rugby World Cup. She later took up track cycling before deciding about a year and a half ago to concentrate on both bobsled and rugby. She underwent hip surgery last fall and now feels as strong as ever entering the Olympic season. Her performance at testing made the decision to return to the Canada 1 sled with Humphries an easy one. "Based on the results, it was a no-brainer in terms of teaming us up together," Moyse said. There will be some changes in the mens sleds as well. Pilot Chris Spring of Calgary will team with Jesse Lumsden of Burlington, Ont., in the two-man and four-man sleds. Lumsden won the World Cup title with pilot Lyndon Rush of Humboldt, Sask., last season. Spring and Lumsden will be joined by Ottawas Cody Sorensen and Ben Coakwell of Saskatoon in the four-man sled. Rush will team with Calgary brakeman Lascelles Brown in the two-man and four-man sleds. David Bissett and Neville Wright, both of Edmonton, will join them in the four-man. The other Canadian sled will feature Justin Kripps of Summerland, B.C., who will drive Torontos Tim Randall, James MacNaughton of Newmarket, Ont., and Graeme Rinholm of Medicine Hat, Alta. The Canadian skeleton team is also looking strong this season. Calgarys Sarah Reid, who won bronze at the 2013 world championship, leads the womens side this week. She will be joined by Cassie Hawrysh of Brandon, Man., and Calgarys Robynne Thompson. The mens lineup for the season opener includes Eric Neilson of Kelowna, B.C., and Calgary-based racers John Fairbairn and Dave Greszczyszyn. "We have a really strong team," Neilson said. "We came out in selections, thats always the most stressful part. So the team is ready to go." Mellisa Hollingsworth of Eckville, Alta., and 2010 Olympic champion Jon Montgomery of Russell, Man., will open the season on the Intercontinental Cup circuit. Athletes can qualify for Sochi while competing on that circuit or at the World Cup level. Some 350 skeleton and bobsled competitors from 30 countries are expected to participate this week, including World Cup four-man champ Alexsandr Zubkov of Russia and World Cup skeleton champions Martins Dukurs of Latvia and Marion Thees of Germany. Competition kicks off Friday afternoon with the skeleton races. The two-man bobsled follows in the evening. On Saturday, the four-man bobsled is set for the morning with the womens bobsled Wholesale MLB Jerseys. -- Novak Djokovic benefited from an erroneous call and claimed he didnt realize he had broken the rules.

The Oilers concern with Yakupov is his play away from the puck and wanting to do everything himself. And with the message received, expect Eakins to lean on Yakupov tonight in Pittsburgh with additional ice time to get him going. In other news, the Toronto Maple Leafs continue to get calls on the availability of defenceman Jake Gardiner. Sources tell The Dreger Report an additional two teams called last week to inquire about the possibility of a trade. But unless a substantial offer surfaces, Gardiner will not be traded and the Leafs insist they are not shopping him.  Its believed last weeks interest was generated by the ongoing media speculation. To date, Toronto has not received an offer for Gardiner. Now the USHL provides the latest example of the frightening risks hockey players face when fighting. Dylan Chanter - a defenceman for the Dubuque Fighting Saints - was injured on Saturday when his helmet slipped off during a fight just prior to Chanter smashing his head on the ice. Warning: The attached video link of Saturdays incident is disturbing and very graphic. Chanterr was released from hospital on Saturday and has since used Twitter to announce his improving status.dddddddddddd The USHL, its hockey operations department and USA Hockey are investigating the incident and the leagues existing fighting sanctions, while analyzing additional procedures to further reduce this type of incident. Prior to introducing a comprehensive player safety initiative in 2012 - which includes a rule to keep helmets on in all situations - sources say the USHL considered adopting a fighting rule similar to what is used in college hockey, where a fight earns a player a five-minute major penalty plus a one-game suspension. However, the USHL opted not to follow the NCAA path and instead assesses fighting majors for those who drop their gloves. USHL president and commissioner Skip Prince is quick to point out that the USHL averages one fight every two and half games. Its unlikely the USHL will drastically alter its rule book in-season, but USA Hockey is watching closely and could intervene if its viewed that this matter isnt being properly addressed. Meanwhile, a number of NHL general managers believe fighting should be banned from junior hockey, or at the very least, game misconducts should be applied to further manage the risk of significant injury...or worse. However, while open to do more to protect their players, some junior hockey executives challenge the NHL to set a new standard of fighting sanctions all development leagues might follow.
