There are many intriguing storylines leading up to SCI, none more captivating than the pending showdown between three-time world champion Patrick Chan and reigning Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu.

Highlighting a stellar men’s lineup that also includes 2015 Canadian men’s champion Nam Nguyen and American Adam Rippon, Chan returns to the competitive ranks at SCI where he will renew acquaintances with Japanese sensation Hanyu.

It’s been two years since Hanyu finished second to Chan at the 2013 Skate Canada International in Saint John, N.B. Just a few months later, the two were once again shoulder to shoulder on the podium at the Sochi Winter Olympics, with Hanyu edging Chan for gold.
