--Naaman Roosevelt will be back in the Riders lineup Saturday night against BC.  He has missed the last four games with a knee injury suffered in Toronto.

--The Scotties is coming back to Moose Jaw.  Curling Canada officials announced the 2020 Canadian Women's Curling Championship will return to Mosaic Place February 14-23.  The event was held in the city in 2015.

--Phil Kessel and Patrik Hornqvist each had a pair of goals as the Penguins walked into Calgary and spanked the Flames 9-1. It was the worst home defeat for Calgary since the Oilers beat them 10-1 at the Saddledome in November 1996.

--Deshaun Watson threw 5 touchdown passes as the Houston Texans moved to 5-3 on the season with a 42-23 win over the Miami Dolphins.   DeAndre Hopkins and Jordan Thomas each had a pair of touchdowns for the winners.

--Hugo Cruz's time as an NFL official has come to a close. The league fired Cruz, who had served as a down judge for performance reasons and was not meeting the standard over a sustained period of time according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.  The NFL Referees Association plans to file a grievance on behalf of Cruz over his dismissal.Cruz had been with the league since 2015, but quickly became known in recent weeks as the official who missed a blatant false start late in the second quarter in Week 6's game between the Los Angeles Chargers and Cleveland Browns. Chargers left tackle Russell Okung dropped back to block before the snap and should have been flagged. Browns defensive end Myles Garrett even pulled up in apparent anticipation of a flag, pointing to Okung while looking to an official. The play was not blown dead and Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tyrell Williams en route to a 38-14 win.
