A pair of Canadian medal hopefuls won't be competing in the women's 100-metre hurdles in London this summer, plus the Oilers land a prized young defenceman as free agency is set to start in the NHL.

1. Perdita Felicien and Priscilla Lopes-Schliep, considered by many to be medal contenders in the women's 100-metre hurdles at this year's summer Olympics, won't get the chance to climb the podium in London.

2. The Edmonton Oilers passed on promising young defenceman Ryan Murray at the 2012 NHL entry draft, instead taking top-ranked forward Nail Yakupov. That decision looked even better on Saturday when highly-coveted free agent blue-liner Justin Schultz announced he'd be signing with the Oilers.

3. Ahead of Sunday's noon opening of the NHL's silly season (i.e. free agency) the Toronto Maple Leafs parted ways with oft-injured forward Colby Armstrong.
