Ray Bourque will be one of the first inducted into the new Hall for Canada's Sports Hall of Fame, Patrick Roy was inducted last year.

When triathlete Peter Reid first saw Canada's Sports Hall Of Fame, his jaw dropped.

"The building as I drove up to it was almost a bit of a shock," he said Tuesday. "It was "Oh my God, look at this thing.’ It's a masterpiece just driving up to it and then you walk in."

Reid, hockey player Ray Bourque, football player Lui Passaglia, soccer player Andrea Neil, para-Alpine skier Lauren Woolstencroft and International Olympic Committee member Richard Pound were the first class of inductees to enter the new Hall, which opened July 1 at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.

Adrian Dater giving deserved love to Lappy.

Whenever I think about Ian Laperriere, I also immediately think about a little girl named Ellie Rolfs.

You see it all the time and it's still a good thing: athletes visiting sick kids on team outings, athletes giving money to sick kids, athletes saying all the right things about perspective when talking about sick kids. But, really, that's usually as far as it goes. These guys are busy, under a lot of pressure, and have families and troubles of their own.

"Lappy" had all of the above -- and still does -- when he played with the Colorado Avalanche. But he found time -- lots of it -- to give to Ellie, who in 2008 was diagnosed at age 2 with Stage IV Widely Diffuse Anaplastic Wilm's Tumor -- an aggressive, rare form of pediatric kidney cancer.

The OHL is taking hits to the head seriously.

Niagara IceDogs forward Tom Kuhnhackl was handed a 20-game suspension Tuesday as a result of his actions during a game against the Kitchener Rangers last week.

Kuhnhackl was given a five-minute major and game misconduct for charging after he levelled defenceman Ryan Murphy on Friday night. He crushed Murphy with a bodycheck as the Kitchener player was skating with his head down behind his own net.
