Cold weather doesn’t dampen spirits for Rogers Hometown Hockey

The Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour presented by Scotiabank and Dodge runs through the weekend.

The weekend features broadcast hosts Ron MacLean, who arrives Sunday morning, and Tara Slone, meet-and-greet opportunities with NHL alumni Rich Sutter and Darcy Tucker, live local entertainment and fun activities for the whole family.

The two-day hockey festival concludes Sunday afternoon following the Rogers Hometown Hockey outdoor viewing party.

Other highlights include feature games, prize giveaways, fun activities and live local entertainment for the whole family, including the Rogers Fan Hub – helping fans be fans, the Fan Hub features innovative and interactive experiences, showcasing virtual autographs from NHL stars, a hockey-themed Zamboni video game and autograph signings with Sutter to unite fans in their passion for the game.

This marks the fourth year the Rogers Hometown Hockey has been on tour—about 24 communities are visited each year.
