What Did You Miss Friday?

--Jeremiah Masoli threw for 369 yards as the Ti-Cats beat Winnipeg 31-17.  It is the 8th straight 300 yard game Masoli has had.  The record is nine. In the night's other game, Mike Reilly threw three touchdown passes and ran for another as the Eskimos knocked off BC 41-22

--Kyries Hebert has been suspended one game for an illegal hit on Calgary receiver Davaris Daniels Thursday. Hebert launched himself into the air and led with the crown of his helmet in the offending hit while Daniels was in a defenceless position.   The play caused former Stamps running back Jon Cornish, who suffered a concussion in 2014 after a hit from Hebert, to go onto Twitter calling for the REDBLACKS to release Hebert.

--Drew Doughty is staying in LA.  The defenceman will sign an eight-year contract extension on July 1 that will pay him around 11 million per season. The 28-year-old has spent his entire professional career with the Kings since being drafted second overall in 2008.

--Edmonton Prospects pitcher Rich Walker threw a perfect game in Fort MacMurray as the Prospects blanked the Giants 4-0.  The Mesa Community College product threw 95 pitches striking out nine.  The Regina Red Sox saw a nine-game win streak end as they were defeated 7-6 at home by Moose Jaw.

--The Blue Jays say when his 75 game suspension is over, Roberto Osuna will go back to his job as the team;s closer.  GM Ross Atkins said "“Roberto is our closer. We’re running a baseball team and our goal is to win championships. Roberto could potentially be very much a part of that. The word that comes to mind for me when you talk about that is empathy. That’s not just for Roberto, that’s for everyone involved, that’s where we’re going to spend our time and energy, on being empathetic and trying to understand. We don’t have a background in investigations.”

--LeBron James will headline the 2018 N-B-A free agent class. The star forward has told the Cleveland Cavaliers that he is not exercising his 35.6-million-dollar (US) contract option for next season and will become an unrestricted free agent. The three-time champion is now the most coveted prize in a market that includes all-stars Paul George and Chris Paul.
