Tom Renney will be named Hockey Canada president and CEO, a source tells The Canadian Press. Kyler Fackrell Jersey . Renney, who previously was an associate coach on Mike Babcocks staff with the Detroit Red Wings, will replace Bob Nicholson, who resigned earlier this year. The announcement is expected to take place Tuesday afternoon in Calgary. Renney is a well-respected hockey person with 17 years of coaching experience in the NHL, WHL and internationally. He spent the past two seasons with the Red Wings. Before that, Renney was head coach of the Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers and Vancouver Canucks. The 59-year-old Cranbook, B.C., native served as head coach of Team Canada for two years, including the 1994 Olympics, after two seasons behind the bench of the WHLs Kamloops Blazers. Renney also served as Rangers director of player personnel and vice president of player development. His history with Hockey Canada is a long one. In addition to winning a silver medal at the 1994 Olympics, Renney has coached Canada in 10 world championships and also served as vice president of hockey operations in 1998 and 1999. Former Colorado head coach and recent Pittsburgh assistant Tony Granato will replace Renney in Detroit, according to multiple reports. Hockey Canadas board of directors began its confidential search for Nicholsons replacement in April with the expectation of making a hire by the end of July. In June, Nicholson was named vice chairman of Oilers Entertainment Group in Edmonton. He maintained his position as vice president of the International Ice Hockey Federation. The day he resigned, Nicholson said he hoped his successor cared about the game. "Make sure that youre in Flin Flon and all the small (towns with) minor hockey across the country," Nicholson said April 4. "Talk about sledge hockey, talk about womens hockey. The other stuffll come. The NHL, the Canadian Hockey League, we have good partnerships there and itll continue to be strong." Bart Starr Jersey . Poti played in 824 regular NHL games with four teams in his career; the Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers, New York Islanders and the Washington Capitals. Kevin King Jersey . Fabio Fognini pulled off a surprise 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 victory over two-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray to level the best-of-five quarterfinal at 2-2 before Andreas Seppi defeated James Ward 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 in the decisive match. http://www.shoptheofficialpackers.com/Elite-Mike-Daniels-Packers-Jersey/ .

Vinci next faces sixth-seeded Kurumi Nara of Japan, who beat Czech qualifier Katerina Siniakova 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-2. No. FRISCO, Texas -- Toronto FC ended a difficult early-season stretch with the kind of game they didnt want. The Reds were dominated in possession and conceded an astounding 16 corner kicks to Western Conference leader FC Dallas, but still managed to hang in until a devastating goal in the final minutes handed them a frustrating 2-1 loss Saturday night at Toyota Stadium. Blas Perezs score off a free kick in the 88th minute kept TFC (3-3) from leaving North Texas with an encouraging draw and instead left the players looking for answers. The loss was the third in four games for Toronto, a stretch that included three road games. The Reds now get a week off before returning to action May 3 against New England at home. "We have to be honest with ourselves tonight and just say we werent good enough," said midfielder Michael Bradley, who returned after missing a game with a strained quadriceps. "You have to have a mentality that says youre not afraid to make mistakes. Youre not afraid to play. Youre not afraid to really get after it. And we fell short in those areas tonight." That much is clear from the numbers. FC Dallas controlled 61 percent of possession-- 63 percent in the second half-- and those 16 corners were a club record. Toronto was also outshot 16-11 and allowed 23 open-play crosses. "We were a little timid at times," midfielder Kyle Bekker said. "We gave the ball away too cheaply. We just have to have the confidence to play. Too many times I think were afraid to play out. We just need to grow and get a little more confidence, but I think that will come as we keep playying together. Dave Robinson Jersey. " Still, the Reds were on the verge of picking up a point. They grabbed an early lead when rookie Issey Nakajima-Farran followed his own shot after Dallas Chris Seitz made a diving save and blasted in the rebound in the 21st minute. They were able to get some quality scoring chances off counter-attacks, among them a controversial non-call in the 75th minute after Dallas defender Kellyn Acosta took down Toronto forward Gilberto in the box. "Oh its just a blatant penalty," TFC coach Ryan Nelsen said. "I mean hes got the inside line on him. The guys out of position, and he just pushed him in the back. Its just absolutely ridiculous. You dont push a guy like that in the back." For the most part the night belonged to FC Dallas (5-1-1), which pushed the ball forward again and again for shots, but mostly for corners. A team that lives on set pieces, having scored nine of its MLS-high 15 goals from them entering the game, Dallas finally took advantage of its many chances. The tying goal came in the 37th, when free-kick specialist Michel curled a corner in front of the net and Matt Hedges rose to head it in. The winner was also off a set piece, a long free kick from Michel that was headed by Stephen Keel and Hedges and fell to the foot of Perez, who slipped it past TFC goalkeeper Julio Cesar for the killing blow. "Its frustrating because we have to find ways to get
