Return tolls for Bell

LANCE HORNBY -- Sun Media

Mark Bell hopes his waiting period is down to two weeks to re-join the Leafs.

The winger, who suffered a broken orbital bone in a fight on Jan. 3 in Pittsburgh, has been practising with a full cage mask.

"I'm getting a CT scan done March 18th and hoping that can be moved up," Bell said yesterday.

Bell faces legal issues regarding an alcohol-related accident in San Jose from 2006, including a civil suit and a jail sentence to be served in the off-season.

CHOWDER CHATTER

With native son Hal Gill traded, the Leafs' new Boston tour guide today for their game against the Bruins is centre Dominic Moore, who spent four years at Harvard on a hockey scholarship.

"I enjoyed the experience, a big city, with a small-town feel," the Thornhill native said.

"We went to a few Bruins games at the Fleetcenter, as it was called then, but our college games at the Beanpot tournament there were just as popular."

Moore majored in sociology from 1999 -2003, while hockey-playing brothers Mark and Steve did math and enviromental science at Harvard, respectively.

"My marks got better as I went along, though Mark was the smart one," Dominic said jokingly. "But in a school such as that, you can go into many fields. You could do Hindu studies and become an investment accountant."

STARS COME OUT

NHL stars spanning three decades will be at Ricoh Coliseum on March 25 to take on a team of law enforcement officers.

Hall of Famers Bryan Trottier, Steve Shutt, Dale Hawerchuk and Billy Smith will join Doug Gilmour, Dave Ellett, Claude Lemieux, Glenn Anderson, Stephane Richer, Bob Probert and Canadian women's team star Vicky Sunohara. A portion of proceeds go to the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.

All fans with tickets to the event can participate in a pre-game public skate with the stars between 4 and 5 p.m. Go to oldtimershockey.com for details.
