What Did You Miss Sunday?

--The Anaheim Ducks raised Paul Kariya's Number 9 to the Honda Center rafters ahead of their game against the Buffalo Sabres. The Hall of Famer watched his banner go up alongside the Number 8 of Teemu Selanne, Kariya's longtime linemate and close friend. Kariya was the first draft pick in the history of the then-Mighty Ducks, and he spent his first nine N-H-L seasons with Anaheim.  In the game, Buffalo won 4-2 with former Regina Pat Sam Steel getting his first career NHL goal for the Ducks.

--After losing to Moose Jaw on home ice Saturday night, the Pats were back in action Sunday afternoon against Everett.  They were beaten 5-1 and are now 3-9 on the season.

-- Brandon Banks will miss the rest of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats season with a broken clavicle. Banks was injured early in the fourth quarter of Friday's 35-31 loss to the Redblacks. Banks's 94 receptions and 1,423 receiving yards in 2018 both rank fifth in a single season in Ticats history.

--Patrick Mahomes threw for 358 yards and four touchdowns as the Chiefs dusted off the Bengals 45-10 in the Sunday night NFL game.  In other games, Drew Brees threw his 500th career touchdown pass as the Saints edged Baltimore 24-23,  Brett Maher's potential game-tying 52 yard field goal bounced off the upright as Washington held on to beat Dallas 20-17 and the Eagles blew a 17-0 lead after three quarters as they were beaten 21-17 by Carolina.

--The Angels and the Reds have new managers. Los Angeles has hired Brad Ausmus (AW'-smus) to replace Mike Scioscia (SOH'-shuh), the winningest manager in franchise history, who left the club earlier this month after 19 seasons. The Reds hired Cincinnati native David Bell to turn around a team that skidded to a 67-95 record and a last-place finish in the N-L Central.
