--Regina's Tyler Bozak has a new home.  The 32-year-old has signed a three year, 15 million dollar deal with the St. Louis Blues.  Bozak had spent his entire NHL career in Toronto. He will go into the upcoming season 35 points away from 400 career.

--The Buffalo Sabres acquired three centres and two draft picks, including a first-rounder in 2019, in trading centre Ryan O'Reilly to the St. Louis Blues. Heading to Buffalo are veterans Vladimir Sobotka and Patrik Berglund, as well as Tage Thompson. Thompson was the Blues first-round pick in the 2016 draft.

--The Cleveland Cavaliers are losing LeBron James once again. The 33-year-old forward has agreed to a four-year, $154 million dollar U-S contract with the Los Angeles Lakers. This is the third time in eight years James has changed teams. He returned to the Cavs in 2014 after four seasons in Miami.

--Aaron Hicks hit three home runs and the Yankees pummeled David Price again, on the way to an 11-1 rout of the Boston Red Sox. New York connected five times in the first four innings to help Luis Severino become the first 13-game winner in the majors. The Yankees took two of three from their longtime rivals to regain baseball's best record and first place in the A-L East.

--Air Canada Centre has a new name. The downtown stadium that's home to the Maple Leafs and Raptors is now known as Scotiabank Arena. Changes began this morning on Day 1 of an $800-million, 20-year partnership between Scotiabank and Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment.

--Penalty kicks were needed to determine the winners in Sunday's Round of 16 games at the World Cup. The host Russians eliminated Spain winning 4-3 on penalty while Croatia beat Denmark 3-2
