HALIFAX It took Patrick Chan all of four minutes and 40 seconds to remind Canada just what it s been missing in men s figure skating. The 25-year-old from Toronto, who walked away from competing after the Sochi Olympics, roared to his eighth Canadian figure skating title Saturday night. As if he d never left.

I feel happy, it s been a great week, such a good learning week, it s what I needed going forward for the rest of the season, Chan said.

The three-time world champion landed two massive quadruple jumps in his classical program to music by Chopin, scoring 295.67 points overall. When a reporter compared his quad to a freight train, Chan laughed and said I need that speed, I need to haul ass into it. He s only the third person in Canadian history to win eight titles. Brian Orser also won eight, while Montgomery Wilson won nine. Chan surpassed Elvis Stojko, who has seven.
