Meanwhile, left-winger Hyman is 24, right-winger Nylander is 20 and centre Matthews is 19. There have been a few more Kid Lines since then in the NHL, but the name only caught on with the fans of the teams they played on. There is only one real Kid Line. Primeau, Conacher and Jackson. So no Kid Line 2, OK? Or Kid Line II. Over to you. The ball is in your court. If you can say that when talking about hockey. But you better get the lead out. Or the ink out, if you’re using a pen instead of a pencil to come up with a name. There’s no way of knowing how long Matthews, Nylander and Hyman will remain a unit. Coaches typically like to experiment with different combinations in order to keep the players from getting complacent or having them get comfortable with a bunch of players, but also to give the team different looks to keep the opposition off guard. They could each have two different linemates if you wait too long. A unique name is a must. Matthews, Nylander and Hyman deserve a handle created just for them. With that in mind, that means ixnay to The New Kids On The Block, which I fear is likely running a close second to Kid Line. Not just because it is also associated with another group, but more importantly the New Kids On The Block aren’t kids anymore. They’re all pushing 40-something. What’s more, it’s probably been a while since they’ve been anywhere near the block, let alone on it. They’re likely everywhere but on the block when you get right down to it.

I need your help loyal readers. The reason I’m reaching out is that I have a funny feeling that the Auston Matthews, William Nylander, Zach Hyman trio is going to end up getting dubbed “The Kid Line.” It’s not that it isn’t a catchy phrase. It is. Or isn’t a fitting phrase. It’s that, too. Very much so. The problem is, it’s not original. There already was a Kid Line. On your very own Maple Leafs, in fact. From 1929 - 1936. The line consisted of centre Joe Primeau, in between right winger Charlie Conacher and left winger Harvey “Busher” Jackson, all of whom are in the Hockey Hall of Fame. I remember that line like it was yesterday. No, not because I was around back then, smarty pants. That was way before my time. Yes, way. Very way. How way is besides the point. I only remember it like it was yesterday because it was yesterday that I made a point of going back and looking up The Kid Line’s bios again. What prompted me to do that was seeing all three grace the Top 100 Maple Leafs list of all time that was introduced during that special centennial celebration at the Air Canada Centre before the opening home game last Saturday night. I seemed to recall that they were even younger than the current young troika but I wanted to make absolutely sure. It turns out I was right. When it comes to kids being kids, they indeed were more junior than today’s group. Primeau was only 23, and Conacher and Jackson were both just 18 when they all first hit the ice together.

RUNNING IN THE RAIN WATERFRONT MARATHON RAISES $2.7M FOR CHARITY JUSTIN SKINNER jskinner@insidetoronto.com More than 25,000 runners from around the world took to the streets for the 27th annual Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on Sunday, pushing their bodies to the limit and raising some $2.7 million for charity. The marathon has become a staple of the Toronto running scene, and while Sunday’s run saw runners struggle with heat and humidity, there were plenty of impressive finishing times. Kenyan-born Philemon Rono placed first with a time of 2:08:27, outpacing Seboka Dibaba of Ethiopia by more than a minute. Eric Gillis of Nova Scotia recorded the fastest run by a Canadian, finishing in 2:13:44. Shure Demise of Ethiopia defended

her women’s title, finishing the marathon in 2:25:18, while Krista DuChene of Brantford was the fastest Canadian woman at 2:34:02. Throngs of supporters packed the streets along the race route, which kicked off near University Avenue and Queen Street West, wound through parts of downtown, and took participants along the city’s revitalized waterfront from Bloor West to the Beach. “From talented runners to dedicated supporters cheering on race participants, we witnessed a great deal of athleticism, philanthropy and community spirit,” said Canada Running Series race director Alan Brookes. The funds raised through the marathon supported 182 local charities.

On the

BABY ADE BRIG at the TORONTO ZOO FANNIE SUNSHINE fsunshine@insidetoronto.com

For two years, the female patient suffered from irregular menstrual cycles. Doctors were about to explore assisted fertility options when she became pregnant on her own. In another case, fertility specialists were stumped as to why another female patient could not conceive - until a recording of rain shower sounds was enough to get her in the mood and get the job done naturally. Those treated by Dr. Gabriela Mastromonaco aren’t your typical patients seeking reproductive assistance. They are housed in Scarborough’s Toronto Zoo, specifically selected for artificial insemination in hopes of producing offspring to keep the numbers of their species up and, if possible, releasing these animals back into their natural habitats. According to the Toronto Zoo, it’s the only Canadian zoo with a reproductive physiologist on staff. Located within the Animal Health Centre, the

reproductive physiology unit is made up of two laboratories, the endocrinology lab and gamete biology lab, where staff, students and visiting scientists work together to investigate fundamental problems related to reproduction in non-domestic species. The goal is to assist with the care and management of captive and free-ranging populations in an effort to maintain reproductive health and ensure the preservation of genetic diversity. Mastromonaco, curator of the Meadowvale Road and Old Finch Avenue zoo’s reproductive programs and research, said it’s always preferred for animals to breed on their own, but for a number of reasons - some known, some not - that might be easier said than done. There could be behavioural or medical issues at play, or lack of a male paramour, in which case semen would have to be flown in. Very much similar to fertility testing humans go through, animal hormones are tested in a lab to look for abnormalities, cycles are monitored, and semen is collected to freeze for insemination, Mastromonaco said, adding she works with more than 50 species a year. And like humans, animals can go on birth control pills - the same women would use - if the zoo isn’t trying to breed a particular species, she said, adding the gorillas are currently on contraception. The Toronto Zoo’s reproductive program, which began in 1988 (prior to this all breeding was done naturally), lends its support to other zoos, primarily within Canada, Mastromonaco said. And though she’s been at the program’s helm for a decade, she still has a lot to learn about the reproductive health of the animals treated. The zoo’s animals typically try to conceive on their own for two to three years before Mastromonaco

and her team step in, who will then evaluate “why babies aren’t coming,” she said. Sometimes the issue isn’t physical. Sometimes it’s as simple as creating the right atmosphere hence the toads and the rain shower music. But as easy as that may sound, pinpointing fertility treatment and what works and what doesn’t is still something Mastromonaco is figuring out. An Indian rhino calf lost a pregnancy because she didn’t have enough progesterone to sustain it. Cheetahs have undergone treatment for five or six years without producing offspring. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), an international organization focused in the field of nature conservation and sustainable use of natural resources, has listed the Indian rhinoceros, polar bear, cheetah, and giant panda some of Toronto Zoo’s biggest draws - as vulnerable. Come next year, the reproductive program currently housed in two rooms inside a 40-year-old building will move into a state-of-the-art facility, which will allow Mastromonaco and her staff more research equipment and space to house and transfer animals more easily, she said, adding the old site will be used as a curatorial lab. Bison insemination is the next “big project” for Mastromonaco, adding the zoo has kept 35-year-old bison sperm frozen in the lab. “As long as the samples are frozen, we can bring them back,” she said. “We can breed across time and space.” The cost of artificially inseminating an animal is $500 to $600 a try, with in-vitro fertilization running $3,000 to $4,000 a pop. But, with certain species dangerously close to extinction, such as the Grevy’s zebra, “you can’t put a price” on reproduction, she said.

Jia Panpan and Jia Yueyue act like typical twins: teasing each other, play fighting, and competing for mom’s attention. Except these twins walk on all fours, are black and white, and will eventually munch on bamboo, their food of choice. Born at the Toronto Zoo Oct. 13, 2015, the giant panda cubs are still very much a crowd favourite, with visitors lining up for hours to catch of glimpse of them and their mother, Er Shun. Da Mao, one of three potential fathers, is housed in a separate enclosure. The first giant panda cubs born in Canada, Jia Panpan (Canadian hope), and his sister, Jia Yueyue (Canadian joy), are still bottle fed, although they like to chew on bamboo, said giant panda zoo keeper Emily Noel of Mitchell’s Corners, Ontario. Weighing in at 20.5 pounds, Jia Panpan loves to play, knocking his sister off a wood plank as they roll on the ground. The smaller of the two, 16.5 pound Jia Yueyue is the more shy, independent twin, according to Noel.

BABY INDIAN RHINO STILL GROWING Baby Nandu came into the world tipping the scales at 140 pounds - and, seven months later, he’s still growing. After a gestation period of roughly 16 months, the Indian rhinoceros was born Feb. 17, 2016 to mom Ashakiran and dad Vishnu at the Toronto Zoo, said Sarah Stata of Port Perry, zoo keeper of the Indomalaya outdoor exhibit. The youngster, who weighed a staggering 906 pounds as of September (by comparison, mom weighs between 3,500 and 4,000 pounds), is described as a very curious boy who likes to be touched and enjoys the water. A herbivore, Nandu’s diet is mainly made up of fruits and vegetables, and mom’s milk. Rhinos tend to be favoured by poachers for their horns, who falsely believe they have the ability to cure cancer, Stata said.

Not many newborns can claim to walk just 10 minutes after being born. But then again, Rey isn’t your typical baby. Rey, an endangered Grevy’s zebra filly, was born to mom Tori July 26, 2016. Described as smart, sassy, and super outgoing by Oshawa’s Kim Welfle, zoo keeper of the African Savannas at the Toronto Zoo, young Rey is an independent spirit who likes to cause trouble with big sister, Leia. Rey will nurse until about eight months old, and she’s also fed a vegetarian diet of hay, fruits and vegetables, with a preference towards apples and carrots. Rey, along with her family, is listed as endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) red list of threatened species - there are roughly 2,000 Grevy zebras left in the wild.

On Saturday Oct. 15, Brock Doors and Windows completed the $25,000 home transformation for their sweepstakes winners. Ilmars and Debra Krievins won the $25,000 Window Door and More contest via a random draw nearly one year ago. The couple was away on vacation when the draw took place, and returned home to a great surprise. Brock Doors and Windows installed brand new windows, alongside a beautiful front door system

and patio door for the lucky winning couple. “We have been transforming homes in the GTA for over 26 years, we only just began this draw two years ago; with the idea of giving back to the community that has kept us in business for so many years.” says Reputation Manager Steavi Potter. The next draw will take place in May 2017. You can enter the contest online at www.brockwindows.com/sweepstakes.
