Marty McSorley of the Boston Bruins will be charged with assault for his brutal stick attack last month on Donald Brashear of the Vancouver Canucks, authorities said yesterday. McSorley will face one count of assault with a weapon, Geoff Gaul, a spokesman for the British Columbia criminal justice branch, said. He said the decision was made after a prosecutor's review and a police investigation. The NHL was displeased with the move but will fully cooperate with British Columbia authorities.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Manny Malhotra returned to practice Friday with the Vancouver Canucks, still hoping to play in the Stanley Cup Finals less than three months after a career-threatening eye injury. Malhotra skated mostly with the Canucks' reserve forwards at the University of British Columbia. Coach Alain Vigneault won't give any hints whether Malhotra will play in Game 2 against the Boston Bruins on Saturday night, but the veteran center remains hopeful he can contribute in the Canucks' final games.

Kyle Wilson, a 6-foot-1 point guard who plays at White Rock Christian Academy in White Rock, British Columbia, has made an oral commitment to attend Villanova, his high school coach said yesterday. Through five games this season, Wilson is averaging 25 points and 13 assists per game. Last year, he averaged 23 points, nine assists and four steals while shooting 54 percent from the field and 81 percent from the free-throw line for a team that went 30-15. Scott Allen, Wilson's coach at White Rock Christian, called Wilson "a very exciting player" who could quickly become a fan favorite at Villanova.

When William B. Noyovitz told his daughter Margo Orlin that he intended to hike Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in 2004, she did not discourage him. "I laughed," Orlin said. " 'If you think you can, and you really want to,' " she said she told her father, " 'I would rather you fell off the side of a mountain than off a rocking chair on your front porch.' "He laughed and off he went. " Below the 19,341-foot summit in September 2004, she said, "he got to around 17,000. The altitude got him. " In days, he turned 79. On Thursday, April 3, Mr. Noyovitz, 88, who retired in 1989 as a financial director for General Electric Co. in South Jersey, died at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, after a stroke.

It was time to put up or shut up. I had been talking about moving to Canada for nearly a decade. Nine months after leaving my job, I was too distracted to finish my latest writing project. A friend suggested I hole up in British Columbia for a couple of months to complete the work and get a taste of life north of the border. After my meteorologist friend in Omaha told me it wasn't downright crazy to attempt a drive to Western Canada in the dead of winter, I started planning. Using Craigslist, I found a pet-friendly rental for February and March in Powell River, a small city on British Columbia's Sunshine Coast.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - A common phrase this year - "Tiger's back" - took on a new meaning Friday at The Barclays. Woods felt a twinge in his lower back when he awoke and felt pain throughout the second round at Bethpage Black. He overcame a bogey-bogey start, struggled in the simple task of retrieving the ball from the cup and stayed 3 strokes back, well within range of Nick Watney and the resurgent Sergio Garcia, who shared the lead going into the weekend. As many injuries as Woods has gone through the last two years, the way he grimaced and walked gingerly made it look as if this could be another.
