-- The Canadian Curling Association says there will be no time outs at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Charlottetown next month in an effort to speed up the games.

Warren Hansen, director of event operations for the CCA, said curlers will be able to confer with their coaches for 20 to 30 seconds if they wish but the clocks will not stop unless officials feel it is necessary.

Each team at the Scotties will be allotted 73 minutes to play a game.

-- Ricky Ray will remain with the Edmonton Eskimos through the 2013 season, the team announced Monday.

Eskimo general manager Eric Tillman said the quarterback is "a championship-calibre player and person" in a news release.

Ray has won two Grey Cups with the Eskimos and is the club's career passing leader.

-- Prince George Cougars forward Spencer Asuchak has been suspended for eight games by the Canadian Hockey League for using a prohibited substance.

The 19-year-old left-winger tested positive methylhexaneamine, a prohibited stimulant, as a result of a urine sample taken in December.

-- Boston centre Marc Savard has suffered another concussion, weeks after returning to the Bruins lineup after a long battle with post-concussion syndrome.

Savard left Saturday's game in Colorado following a hit by former teammate Matt Hunwick. Savard, 33, had returned to the lineup Dec. 2 after missing training camp and the first 23 games of the season because of post-concussion syndrome.

-- Two of Britain's leading soccer commentators were reprimanded by their TV network and taken off the air Monday after making sexist remarks off-microphone about two female match officials and West Ham executive Karren Brady.

Andy Gray and Richard Keys came under fire from all angles on Monday for their derogatory comments about Sian Massey's suitability as a lineswoman for the Premier League match between Wolverhampton and Liverpool, a game they were presenting for Sky Sports on Saturday.
