Sounds like the perfect time for Canadian of the Week honoree Andrew Wiggins to make his all-star game debut!

Ready for ‘Slap Shot’ live?
It’s been more than 35 year since we first met the Hanson Brothers in the 1977 hockey movie, “Slap Shot,” but Toronto’s Second City is bringing the classic tale to life with a live stage production starting in July.
From CBC.ca:

The comedy troupe will host the debut of”Slap Shot Live,” an “interactive” theatrical adaptation of the profane 1977 sports classic, which starred Paul Newman as the aging player, coach and conman Reggie Dunlop.

The producers ultimately want to take the show on the road and are looking for other cities that would like to host it.

Ground Control to Commander Chris Hadfield…
He’s arguably the most awesome and definitely one of the best known astronauts since Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon, and now Cmdr. Chris Hadfield has done it again. Today he wraps up his stay on the International Space Station, and marks the occasion by releasing the first music video ever produced in space, a revised take on David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.”
It’ll be good to have Hadfield back among us here on Earth, but we’ll certainly miss the way he so conscientiously and entertainingly brought us along for the ride.
Here’s the video:

Jay Baruchel does ‘Sherlock’ on stage
He’s nervous, but it’s a good kind of nervous. Jay Baruchel, the proud Montreal native and scrawny star of many a Judd Apatow project, is returning to the stage for the first time since he was 17 in a production of "Sherlock Holmes" at the Segal Centre in his hometown. It starts Sunday. 
In an interview with the CBC, the actor admits to nerves and that he doesn’t want to ruin the legacy of Holmes, but he’s excited to do it justice and pay homage to Greg Kramer, the British-born Canadian actor and playwright who wrote this production and died on the first day of rehearsals.
