(AP) Patrick Chan opened the Olympic season with a short-program victory Friday night at Skate Canada.

The Canadian star and three-time world champion scored 88.10 points, but tripled his quad toe loop attempt and couldn't hold the landing on his second triple toe loop.

Japan's Nobunari Oda was second at 80.82, and teammate Yuzuru Hanyu followed at 80.40.

Earlier, American Gracie Gold won the women's short program.

Gold finished with 69.45 points in her first major competition with new coach Frank Carroll. Canadians Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford took the pairs short program, and Canada's Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir topped the ice dance short program.
