Windsor Spitfires

The Windsor Spitfires are off to a hot start this season.

After starting the season with a 3-1 win over the Saginaw Spirit on opening night, the Spitfires would go to win the next two games against the London Knights 5-2 and Guelph Storm 4-0. During this span, goaltender Michael DiPietro won the award for both the Ontario Hockey League and Canadian Hockey League Player of the Week.

 

NBA

The National Basketball League has seen some massive player movements.

On Monday, Sept. 25, New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder for forwards Doug McDermott and Enes Kanter. The Knicks also received draft considerations of a 2018 first round pick and 2020 second round.

 

The Cleveland Cavaliers signed Dwyane Wade to a one-year $2.3 million deal on Sept. 27. This signing will reunite Wade with former teammate Lebron James. Signing Wade is one of many off-season moves General Manager Koby Altman has made. Other notable moves include the signing of Derrick Rose and trading Kyrie Irving for Isaiah Thomas.

 

MLB

Major League Playoffs are quickly approaching. The MLB playoff picture has become very clear over the last couple of weeks. Now with only one wild-card spot available, the Colorado Rockies could clinch the spot as early as Sept. 23.

 

The American League wild-card game will see the New York Yankees play the Minnesota Twins Oct. 3. The winning team will then face the Cleveland Indians in the American League division series (ALDS). The Boston Red Sox will be facing off against the Houston Astros in the other ALDS.

 

In the National League, the picture is a little less clear, as there are still two teams fighting for the last wild-card spot. The closest team being the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies could seal the spot as early as Sept. 29. The team that does secure the last spot will play the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League wild-card game Oct.4.

 

NHL

Vegas Golden Knights have begun their first ever preseason and are closely approaching the regular season. This preseason has seen the Golden Knights put up a 3-2-1 record with their next game Oct. 1. The Golden Knights’ wins have come against the Vancouver Canucks, Colorado Avalanche, and Anaheim Ducks.   

The Montreal Canadiens have also had a noticeable preseason as they have yet to win a game and have a record of 0-6. This start has many hockey analysts talking about the Canadiens inability to score as having scored only nine goals in the six-game span and have allowed 25 to be scored on them.

 

NFL

The Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals are set to play each other Oct. 1. Both teams are yet to win so far this season, this game will allow one of the teams to add their first win while the other holds a record of 0-4. The only other team to join the Browns and Bengals in the winless section is the L.A. Charges. They will look to change that Oct. 1 when they go up against the 2-1 Philadelphia Eagles.

  

Quarterback Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs will look to continue without a loss and a 4-0-0 record when they face the Washington Redskins Oct. 2. The Chiefs have yet to score fewer than 20 points in a game.
