For the 13th season running, Hockey Night in Canada’s Ron MacLean and Don Cherry will be hosting “Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada” from this years location of Peterborough, ON, on February 9th. All seven Canadian NHL teams will be featured in action throughout the day.
Fans and players alike have a passion for the sport, “Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada connects Canadians to the game they love with stories from communities across the country and live looks at local celebrations taking place from coast-to-coast-to-coast. The theme of this year’s celebration is ‘Heart’ and throughout the day CBC will present viewers with stories that demonstrate the passion that brings people and communities together through the game of hockey, and life lessons learned by being involved in grassroots hockey.”
Many might recall the overwhelming success of last year’s Hockey Day in Canada, which was broadcast from the beautiful province of Prince Edward Island (PEI). To get Canadian’s excited for the event, CBC will be hosting on-ice clinics and school visits with none other than Lord Stanley’s Cup. On February 9th, the day will kick off with a 2 pm ET puck drop as the Edmonton Oilers visit the Detroit Red Wings, while the Winnipeg Jets play host to the Ottawa Senators.
