Here’s what happened while you were getting some refreshing shut-eye.

Authorities are searching for a 17 year old who may have been carried away by currents near Huberdeau in the Laurentians. According to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), the teen may have been trying to swim across the Rouge River when they disappeared. Efforts by firefighters and police officers to find the teen on Saturday continued until the sun set. The search will resume Sunday morning.

Max Domi said he’ll turn his father, former Maple Leafs tough-guy Tie Domi, into a Habs fan. “If you would have told anyone in their right mind 5-10 years ago that Tie Domi was going to be a Montreal Canadiens fan they would have looked at you and laughed and said that’s crazy,” the new Hab told Stu Cowan. “I’m his son and I’m playing for one of the most historic franchises in all of sports and he’s the biggest Habs fan in the world now.” Domi, who was acquired from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for Alex Galchenyuk, appeared at the Montreal Canadiens’ Brossard training facility on Saturday and unveiled the No. 13 jersey he’ll wear with his new team.

A Polish environmental group that was using a mobile-phone transmitter to track migratory movements of a stork has received a phone bill of $3,515 after the bird went missing in Sudan and someone started using the chip to make calls. Like many other storks who nest in Poland in the summer, Kajtek, an adult stork, began his southward migration to Africa in August 2017. Thanks to a SIM-chip transmitter, the Ecological Group was able to track his GPS movements and post details about the journey online. The bird’s last signal came from Sudan on April 26. But later, the group heard that some 20 hours of calls had been made using the SIM card in Sudan. Ireneusz Kaluga, the association’s head, said Friday that Kajtek “probably isn’t alive.”
