Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender James Reimer gets the call in net as Canada opens up its World Championship group stage play on Friday against France. You can catch the action live on TSN at 9:30am et/6:30am pt. Coach Dave Tippett says he made the call of Reimer over Edmonton Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens, Reimers former teammate, strictly due to seniority. Its expected that both goalies will split time at the tournament in Belarus with Scrivens likely seeing action in Canadas next game on Saturday against Slovakia. Reimer last played for Canada at the 2011 World Championships in Slovakia, posting a 4-0 record in the group stage. Jonathan Bernier, now Reimers teammate with the Leafs, was preferred for Canadas quarterfinal game and dropped a 2-1 decision to Russia. This is Scrivenss first time representing Canada at any level. Meanwhile, Kevin Bieksa was named Team Canadas captain on Thursday. Coach Dave Tippett said Bieksa got the nod because hes outgoing but also plays hard and with passion. Jason Chimera is one alternate because he brings the experience of winning at this tournament before and Kyle Turris is the other because he bridges young and old on the roster. One thing Canadas leadership group has in common is a love for keeping things light on the ice. Thats part of what Bieksa thinks his role is, but he also expects his teammates to take the tournament seriously. "Just to keep guys loose having fun and then focused for the games," the Vancouver Canucks defenceman said. "Everybodys coming over here for a purpose. We didnt fly all this way just to have a good time. We flew here to win games and to continue on the standard that Canada set at the Olympics. Were going to come to compete." At 32, Bieksa is the fourth-oldest player on the team, younger than only Chimera (35), Joel Ward (33) and Alex Burrows (32). There are also a handful of very young players, including Nathan MacKinnon (1Cool, Sean Monahan (19), Jonathan Huberdeau (20), and Mark Scheifele (21). Bieksa is in charge of helping meld this diverse group together. "Its been pretty seamless so far. Everybody brings something to the table," Bieksa said after practice at Chizhovka-Arena. "The young guys are young and (add) a new perspective and energy and the older guys, theres some guys that have played in this tournament a few times and they know what to expect and you lean on them for some advice. Its a good mix." Chimera is Canadas only player with an IIHF World Hockey Championship gold medal, won in 2007 in Moscow. His message to a lot of his teammates is that they never know when theyll be able to wear the Maple Leaf again. That could be true of Chimera, too, and if it is the Washington Capitals winger is making sure he enjoys it. Even with two children at home, his wife was supportive of him coming to Minsk to play in his third world championship. "Hockey keeps you young," said Chimera, whos 4 1/2 years too young to be able to play without a visor. "Its just awesome, you see these young kids, how talented they are, they keep it light. A lot of them were pretty nervous coming over here, but I try to keep it as light as possible." Thursdays first practice in Minsk following an exhibition game against Switzerland in Zurich was light but up-tempo. Tippett and assistants Paul Maurice and Peter DeBoer had plenty of teaching to do a day before Canada opens the tournament against France. James Reimer will start against France, while Ben Scrivens is set to start against Slovakia on Saturday night. "It goes solely off seniority," Tippett said. "Scrivens was upset because he thought he shouldve got the call because he had 19 seconds longer than Reimer the other day (in the exhibition game)." Reimer is playing at the world championships for the second time after going 4-0-0 in 2011 before being replaced by now-Toronto Maple Leafs teammate Jonathan Bernier. With Scrivens -- whos now with the Edmonton Oilers -- on board this time, Reimer is sharing the net with a former teammate. Come the start of the 2014-15 NHL season, he very well could have another goaltending partner if the Leafs trade the restricted free agent. Reimers season in Toronto didnt go as he planned, and its only natural for him to think scouts and general managers will be watching him in Minsk. "I assume so. I think theyre scouting everyone," Reimer said. "I think everyones taking a peek at whoever might have a contract up or might not, thats what theyre here to do. Any time youre playing, especially in a different situation, theyre watching to see how you react and respond. But in every NHL game theres scouts and GMs watching, too. Its just one of those things wherever youre playing competitively, people will be watching." Theres plenty for Tippett to watch for early in this tournament that could affect his plan going forward. On Thursday he kept the top line of Burrows, Turris and MacKinnon together from Tuesdays exhibition game and tinkered elsewhere. Nazem Kadri centred Cody Hodgson and Troy Brouwer, while Philadelphia Flyers teammates Brayden Schenn and Matt Read skated with Huberdeau. Chimera and Capitals teammate Ward remained together, and Tippett said hell keep an eye on having either Scheifele or Monahan between them. Because this tournament is such a "scramble" with so little preparation time, Tippett is just trying to get create some chemistry before the first puck drop. "Youve got to get your players in roles early," he said. "Always subject to change, but I think one of the most important factors of a tournament like this is you try to get everybody in their spots as quick as you can." That starts with establishing Bieksa as captain. Burrows voiced support for that choice because his Canucks teammate is good at bringing people together. "He keeps it fun, he likes to have a good time," Burrows said. "But at the same time when its time to work and do the right things, hes the first one to lead the way."

. Wright sat out games on Tuesday and Wednesday after learning he broke his finger diving back to a base Monday night. He was examined by a hand specialist for the second straight day Thursday.An early lead was all the Winnipeg Goldeyes pitching staff needed for Winnipegs first win of the 2014 season. On the back of an early 3-0 lead and a shutdown pitching effort, the Goldeyes (1-1) beat the Amarillo Sox (1-1) 5-2 Friday night before 2,120 fans at a gusty Amarillo National Bank Sox Stadium in Texas. With two out in the top of the first inning, Goldeyes left fielder Ray Sadler hit a solo home run to left field. It was Winnipegs first home run of the season and put the road team up 1-0. Winnipeg added to its lead in the third inning. Designated hitter Ryan Pineda led off the inning with a triple and was quickly singled home a batter later by catcher Luis Alen. After shortstop Tyler Kuhn hit into a double play, second baseman Jake Blackwood hit a solo home run to extend Winnipegs lead to 3-0. Goldeyes starting pitcher Jason Jarvis was stellar in his first start of the season, throwing just 58 pitches in six innings of work. "You have to go out there and get strike one," Goldeyes pitching coach Jamie Vermilyea said on the Jewel 101 post-game show. "Jarvis did a heck of a job doing that tonight." Jarvis only blemish came in the bottom of the sixth inning when he surrendered three consecutive one-out singles and a sac fly, which led to two Amarillo runs. Down to a one-run lead, the Goldeyes restored the three-run lead in the top of the eighth inning. Kuhn singled and BBlackwood walked to start the inning.dddddddddddd. Then a deep fly ball from Sadler moved them to second and third base. After centre fielder Reggie Abercrombie was intentionally walked, Kuhn scored on a wild pitch and third baseman Josh Mazzola scored Blackwood on a sac fly. "There was a three-inning stretch there where we didnt put together too many good ABs, but we beared down in the eighth inning and mustered those two runs, which were big for us," Vermilyea said. From there, Goldeyes relievers Chris Kissock, Brendan Lafferty and Kyle Bellamy in windy conditions in the bottom of the ninth inning wiped out any hopes Amarillo had of staging a comeback. Jarvis posted his fourth quality start in five starts as a member of the Goldeyes dating back to last season and earned the win, while Bellamy picked up his first save in a Goldeyes uniform. Amarillo starter Derek Blacksher also turned in a quality start, but he suffered his first loss of the season.Kuhn, Blackwood and Sadler led Winnipeg with a pair of hits each, as the Goldeyes outhit Amarillo 9-7. Defensively, Winnipeg didnt commit an error after making four on the rugged playing surface at ANB Sox Stadium last night. The Goldeyes and Sox meet again Saturday night at 7 p.m. The Goldeyes are expected to start righty Matt Jackson, who will be activated from the inactive list. Hell face southpaw Dayne Quist. ' ' '
