TORONTO, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Canadas benchmark stock index notched a weekly gain of more than 1 percent but ended nearly flat on Friday as falling metal prices and some profit-taking in other sectors largely offset gains in groups led by consumer companies.

The Toronto Stock Exchanges S&P/TSX composite index eked out 0.31 points to finish at 15,173.03.

Six of the indexs 10 main groups gained ground.

The Stars Group, formerly known as gaming company Amaya, saw its shares jump 9.8 percent to C$23.4 after it raised its 2017 outlook and announced an additional debt prepayment.

Auto-parts maker, Magna International Inc was another influential gainer, rising 1.9 percent to C$63.23. The broader consumer discretionary group rallied 0.8 percent.
