Battle of the Blades Season Has Begun!
Battle of the Blades is back and ready to entertain Canadian audiences with its strange hybrid of two of the country’s best loved sports: hockey and figure skating. The new season of Battle of the Blades features 7 pairs of hockey players and figure skaters.
Our coach Violetta Afanasieva is paired with P.J. Stock, who was brought in as a late replacement for Colby Armstrong, who sustained a hamstring injury during rehearsals. Armstrong will appear as a guest judge alongside other rotating guest judges, who include Canadian ice dancing champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, and head judge Kurt Browning.
You can vote once a day – Thursday night to Tuesday at 12 PM ET –
