The ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating makes its second stop of the season this week in Saint John, N.B., for Skate Canada International.

As always, this year's field is packed with Canadian stars going head-to-head with their international rivals.

Patrick Chan, the three-time reigning men's world champion, is making his Grand Prix season debut, along with Olympic ice dance gold medallists and two-time world champs Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. Up-and-comer KaetlynOsmond competes in the ladies' event, and world pairs bronze medallists Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford look to continue their ascension as the Sochi Olympics approach.
