Abbotsford – Canada’s ultimate NHL fan experience is back for a sixth season as Sportsnet and Rogers Hometown Hockey™ criss-cross the country, making stops in 25 communities to celebrate the local hockey stories that connect the nation.
After a three absence, the event is an early Christmas present for Abbotsford, December 14 & 15.
The free festival features a full weekend of live entertainment, NHL alumni, and hockey-themed activities, culminating with a live outdoor viewing party of an NHL broadcast from the Sportsnet Mobile Studio, hosted once again by Sportsnet favourites Ron MacLean and Tara Slone.
“Hockey brings Canadians together from coast-to-coast. It allows us to imagine new possibilities and share the stories that unite the country,” said MacLean.
“It has been a privilege to tell Canada’s hockey stories over the past five seasons and we are grateful for the chance to hit the road for season six; seeing old friends and meeting new ones, and getting to the heart of this country’s insatiable passion for hockey,” added Slone.
