Things kick off this week on a field, rather than at the rink, as we join Maripier Morin at her first ever CFL football game, in support of the Montreal Alouettes. MP confides in her girlfriend, Cindy, that things with Brandon continue to be very tough as he fights for a spot on an NHL team.

Brandon is in Toronto on a professional try out with the Maple Leafs, feeling the pressures the NHL can have on an aging defencemen fresh off an ankle injury and surgery. Meanwhile, things continue to heat up for MP’s career as she lands the cover of Dress To Kill magazine.

Ultimately Brandon gets cut from the Leafs and Maripier finds herself the ultimate punching bag. Despite an emotional summer, MP says her goal right now is to be there for her man but that it might mean spending some time focusing on themselves… apart.

Next up, we head South to Orange County to catch up with returning season 1 wife, Emilie Blum, married to Jonathan Blum who currently plays in Russia. Last we saw Emilie, she was adamant her identity as an American and past military service would prevent her from heading overseas. Fast forward a couple of years and oh, how things have changed!

Expecting their first child, The Blums have decided it’s best for Emilie to stay in the States for doctor appointments, while Jonathan heads back to Russia for the start of the season.

During a visit from her friend Yiuliana, whom she met in Russia, Emilie plans for her trip to visit Jonathan, hoping that everything will run smoothly for her and baby. But first, it’s time for a check up on their little baby boy.

Meanwhile, In Quebec City the Vlasics throw their second annual fundraiser in support of Patro-Laval, a YMCA-like establishment. For the couple who are very aware of their good grace, it’s important for them to give back.

Up next, Marc and Martine head to Toronto, where he and Team Canada, bring home the World Cup!

Last, but certainly not least, we meet Vanessa Vandal, interior design student and girlfriend of St Louis Blues, David Perron. The couple are wrapping up their off-season in Magog, Quebec, before moving down to Missouri for the start of a new season.

Moving with their young son, Mason, proves to make things challenging, especially when daddy David has less than 24 hours until his first skate of the season.
