The Week in Events By Brad Wheeler

The Lineup: Nov. 12 - 18 Add to ...

Groin strains, war stories and diminished athletic prowess mark a shinny contest between squad led by all-timers Borje Salming and Ray Bourque. It’s part of the weekend of events that mark the induction of four players – including one-time Maple Leafs Joe Nieuwendyk, Ed Belfour and cult-hero Doug Gilmour – into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Nov. 13, 2 p.m. $20 to $55 . Air Canada Centre, 40 Bay St., hhoflegendsclassic.com.

Hero vs. Prodigy

For an actor, Hayden Christensen is pretty fair tennis player – how’s that for a backhanded compliment? He’ll be on hand for an exhibition of tennis that features a main-event meeting of the former serve-and-volley stud Pete Sampras and the fast-rising Thornhill native Milos Raonic. Nov. 17, 7 p.m. $25 to $100 . Air Canada Centre, 40 Bay St., 855-985-5000.

FAMILY

Royal Agricultural Winter Fair

Do the winners of the giant-pumpkin contest win seed money? Find out at a barnyard fandango of horse shows and vegetable showdowns. To Nov. 13 (Saturday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ). $16 to $22 . Exhibition Place , 855-872-7777 .

Seussical

Not only is there no junk in his trunk, Horton the Elephant is big-hearted and sensitive to the plight of the residents of super-tiny Whoville. A musical, based on the landmark books of Dr. Seuss, entertains charmingly. To Dec. 30 . $10 to $20 . Young People’s Theatre , 165 Front St. E., 416-862-2222.
