Hockey Canada picks two 'Tobans

Two young Manitoban hockey players will lace up in Calgary next week, given a chance to play alongside candidates for the women's national team.

Brunkild-raised forward Christine Bestland, 21, and Neepawa defenceman Halli Krzyzaniak, 18, are among 13 players from the national under-22 roster plucked by Hockey Canada to join the 27 players on the national women's team centralization roster for their upcoming intrasquad games. The 40 total players will be split and play red vs. white games for three tilts.

The games are designed to give national team organizers a chance to evaluate the players being considered for the 2014 Olympic squad, while also getting younger players more experience playing with the national team veterans.

Bestland and Krzyzaniak were selected after the national women's development team camp wrapped last week. Bestland was on the team that won gold at the 2013 Meco Cup in Germany earlier this year, and Krzyzaniak won gold with the Canadian under-18 team in Finland in January.

PGA's Johnson, Gretzky gal to walk aisle

JUPITER, Fla. -- PGA Tour player Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky have taken to Twitter to say they're getting married.

Johnson tweeted Sunday that "she said yes!!!" and included a picture of a large diamond ring on the daughter of hockey great Wayne Gretzky. She retweeted it, along with several congratulatory messages from friends and family.

They first were linked at the start of the year when she was in the gallery at Kapalua, where Johnson won the Tournament of Champions. Gretzky and his wife, Janet, joined their daughter the following week in Honolulu at the Sony Open.

Johnson and Wayne Gretzky were partners in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Johnson has seven PGA Tour wins.
