Canadas national mens team begins its quest for a 25th gold medal at the world championship on Friday when it faces France in the Group A opener in in Minsk, Belarus. You can catch the action live on TSN and TSN GO at 9:30am et/6:30am pt. Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender James Reimer gets the call in net for the opener. Coach Dave Tippett said he chose Reimer over Edmonton Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens strictly on seniority. Its expected that both goalies will split time at the tournament, with Scrivens likely seeing action in Canadas next game on Saturday against Slovakia. "It goes solely off seniority," Tippett said. "Scrivens was upset because he thought he shouldve got the call because he had 19 seconds longer than Reimer the other day (in the exhibition game)." While this is Scrivens first time representing Canada at any level, Reimer last played for Canada at the 2011 World Championships in Slovakia, where he posting a 4-0 record in the group stage. On Thursday, coach Tippett kept the top line of Alex Burrows, Kyle Turris and Nathan MacKinnon together from Tuesdays exhibition game and tinkered elsewhere. Nazem Kadri centred Cody Hodgson and Troy Brouwer, while Philadelphia Flyers teammates Brayden Schenn and Matt Read skated with Jonathan Huberdeau. Jason Chimera and Capitals teammate Joel Ward remained together, and Tippett said hell keep an eye on having either Mark Scheifele or Sean Monahan between them. "Youve got to get your players in roles early," Tippett said. "Always subject to change, but I think one of the most important factors of a tournament like this is you try to get everybody in their spots as quick as you can." Kevin Bieksa was named Team Canadas captain on Thursday. Tippett said Bieksa got the nod because hes outgoing but also plays hard and with passion. Chimera is one alternate because he brings the experience of winning at this tournament before and Turris is the other because he bridges young and old on the roster. "He keeps it fun, he likes to have a good time," Burrows said. "But at the same time when its time to work and do the right things, hes the first one to lead the way." Following Fridays game against France, Canada faces Slovakia on Saturday. The game can be seen live on TSN and TSN GO at 1:30pm et/10:30am pt. Aaron Sanchez Jersey . Re-signed by the club to a one-year, two-way (NHL/AHL) contract on July 5, Bass appeared in three preseason games with Columbus prior to breaking a bone in his hand on Sept. Devon Travis Jersey . The Mets made the announcement Sunday night. Parnell blew a save on opening day against Washington and the next day it was revealed he had partially torn right elbow ligament. http://www.teambluejaysprostore.us/Roberto-Alomar-blue-jays-jersey/. - John Elways philosophy is to address immediate needs in free agency, even though some of his own veterans may prove too pricey to keep around. Jason Grilli Jersey .C. -- Authorities say the brother of Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has been shot and killed outside a South Carolina nightclub. Kevin Pillar Jersey . -- Theres nothing like winning to bring hope for a struggling team.Next stop on Around the QB Horn: Hamilton, Ontario. This is where youll find the Beast of the East, a Tiger-Cat team that went 8-2 against East Division opponents. Thats tops in the Division with two more wins than Toronto, four more than Montreal. Simply put, Hamilton is considered a major threat to be playing in Regina on November 24th. Offensively this team is led by 14-year veteran Henry (Smilin Hank) Burris. Hes a 38-year-old quarterback that plays like hes in his mid-20s. Burris can still make any throw on the field, often times making it look easy! He possesses the ability to make defenders miss and can gash a defense with his legs just as well as he can with his cannon-like right arm. Some folks talk about Henrys turnover woes, which do seem to come at the most inappropriate times, but what makes Burris so good is he can do things other quarterbacks cant and often times makes it look easy. So when he does make a mistake, it can leave you scratching your head and wondering what he was thinking. He was just being Henry, which is pretty damn amazing. Id much rather have a quarterback with his rare and unique skill set at the helm and try to real him in a bit than one without his abilities and ask him to do things hes not capable of. Put it this way, with Henry, you live and die by the sword, but at least you have one! He gives the Ticats a chance to win every time on the field. Much has been made about Dan LeFevours play this year in short yardage situations. When you digest the fact that you have a 38-year-old starting quarterback, you dont want to put him into the most violent scenario, ultimately the short yardage game. Kent Austin managed his quarterbacks and did it wisely by removing Henry from this abuse and inserted a younger and certainly talented rushing quarterback in his own right, in LeFevour. LeFevour is a second-yeaar Ticat from Central Michigan who has scored seven touchdowns on 54 rushing attempts.dddddddddddd Thats 54 less touches on Burris in a guaranteed contact and severe collision mode situation. LeFevour has been solid when given the opportunity to chuck it down field as he has completed 40-62 passes for 394 yards, a 64.5 percent completion percentage. Id look for a few attempts when hes in short yardage scenarios Sunday, as that would be a tendency breaker... A couple of weeks back, we saw the emergence of Jeremiah Masoli, a dynamic young quarterback from Ole Miss. He was used in a wildcat formation against Montreal and was extremely effective. Masoli is a firecracker of a quarterback that is cut from the same cloth as many of the leagues running backs at 510 and 221 lbs. Coach Austin has spared his veteran gunslinger some obvious punishment in short yardage situations this season by employing the skill set of the younger LeFevour, and balanced an aggressive Montreal defence with the deployment of Masoli in the misdirection wildcat offence. But - and this is a big but - he took away valuable touches from one of the most electrifying running backs in the CFL this year, super-rookie CJ Gable. Austin continues to tinker and tweak his offense, keeping opposing defenses on their toes and often times, their heels. Austin is creative, effective and certainly not afraid of mixing it up from week to week. Lets see how the “Mad Scientist” Kent Austin attacks Montreals stout defence this Sunday. No doubt Burris will be slinging it all over the field making it look easy, LeFevour will be doing his thing in short yardage and maybe even Masoli will be deployed in the wildcat offence balancing up that aggressive Als defence. Should be a great game Sunday at the University of Guelphs Alumni Stadium!
