TORONTO — Jodeyne Higgins and ex-NHLer Ken Daneyko were the fourth pair iced on the Battle of the Blades.

Christine Hough-Sweeney and Tie Domi were saved Monday joining the three remaining pairs on the CBC TV show for a chance to win $100,000 for the charity of their choice.

The two pairs with the fewest votes in the fourth week of competition were Higgins and Daneyko, who skated to James Brown’s “I Got You,” and Hough-Sweeney and Domi, who performed their routine to Robin Thicke’s “Superman.”

Both pairs performed before regular judges Sandra Bezic, Dick Button and guest judge Lanny McDonald for a final chance to remain on the show.

McDonald is known for his years with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Calgary Flames.

Higgins and Daneyko’s Canadian charity, Foundation Fighting Blindness, will receive a $25,000 donation.

The other pairs returning to compete on Sunday are: Shae-Lynn Bourne and Claude Lemieux, Marie-France Dubreuil and Stephane Richer and Jamie Sale and Craig Simpson.

Kristi Yamaguchi, the Olympic gold medallist, and her husband Bret Hedican, who won a Stanley Cup with the Carolina Hurricanes, will be guest judges.
