TORONTO, Sept 28 (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose the most in one week on Wednesday as energy stocks soared after OPEC sources said the group has struck a deal to limit crude output, while the financials and materials groups also gained ground.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index unofficially closed up 173.39 points, or 1.19 percent, at 14,731.43. Eight of the index's 10 main groups ended higher. (Reporting by Fergal Smith; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
