Canadians Making The Grade South Of The Border In The NFL

Current Stars Rekindle NFL Interest In Canadian Players

That said, several Canadian born players past and present have left a positive mark on the National Football League. The list of current players includes Austin Collie who was born in Hamilton, Ontario and entered the NFL in 2009 as a wide receiver in the Indianapolis Colts juggernaut offense. Collie has recorded 1,839 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns in 41 career games for the Colts.

Minnesota drafted Nate Burleson, born in Calgary, Alberta, as wide receiver back in 2003. Burleson enjoyed a 1,006-yard, nine TD season with Vikings in 2004, and a 649-yard, nine TD season with the Seattle Seahawks in 2007. Since then, Burleson has settled in with the resurgent Detroit Lions over the past two seasons – catching a career high 73 passed in 2011.

Canadian Getting His Kicks In The National Football League

Another Canuck enjoying a measure of success south of the border is place kicker Shaun Suisham who hails from the tiny town of Wallaceburg, Ontario. After two stints with the Dallas Cowboys and another two the Washington Redskins, Suisham signed a four-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers prior to the 2011 season.

Canadiens at Kings NHL Online Betting Lines 
I really feel like this is going to get worse before it gets better. The Montréal Canadiens now sit in the basement in the NHL's Atlantic Division, after dropping their fifth game in a row. It was another disappointing offensive effort and a real defensive letdown, as they lost 5 to 2 to the not so great San Jose Sharks. How much worse can it get? Well, they are on the road for two more games in California. How will they fare tonight against the LA Kings?

Canadiens at Sharks NHL Online Betting Lines 
Well, this is not good at all. If you're a Montréal Canadiens fan, that is. We had a real beast of the schedule to start the season, and we have not been able to find our footing. At all. The Habs have lost their last 4 games, and haven't won since opening night. They also have scored an embarrassingly low amount of goals. Today, they hit the road and face the arguably-just-as-disappointing San Jose Sharks team.

Eagles at Panthers NFL Online Betting 
There is only one undefeated team left in the NFL. The Kansas City Chiefs have really exceeded my expectations to start the season, with a 5-0 record. That 5-0 does contain three road games, by the way. This weekend, they're at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers. How will they fair? Will the Steelers halt the NFL's longest winning streak, or will the Chiefs extend to 6-0? Keep reading to find out.

Maple Leafs at Canadiens NHL Online Betting Lines 
CBC is the place to be tonight. Lord, I can't believe I just said that. But, it's oddly appropriate for once. They have two absolutely fantastic games in a Hockey Night in Canada. First, the Toronto Maple Leafs throwdown against the Montréal Canadiens. And in the nightcap, the Ottawa Senators go up against the Edmonton Oilers. But right now, we’re only concerned with the Habs.
