TORONTO (CP) — Olympic gold medal­list Kristi Ya­m­aguchi and her NHL hus­band Bret Hed­i­can are weigh­ing in on the CBC-TV re­al­ity show, “Bat­tle of the Blades.”

Ya­m­aguchi, a 1992 U.S. Olympic cham­pion, and the re­cently re­tired Hed­i­can, who won a Stan­ley Cup in 2006 with the Carolina Hur­ri­canes, will join the judges’ ta­ble to pro­vide a com­bined score on Sun­day’s per­for­mance episode.

They’ll join reg­u­lar judges San­dra Bezic and Dick But­ton in rat­ing the prow­ess of sea- soned fig­ure skaters that are paired with for­mer hockey play­ers for the weekly skate-off.

Pro­duc­ers say all four judges will de­cide which of the bot­tom two rank­ing pairs — as de­ter­mined by viewer votes — gets iced on Mon­day’s re­sults show.
