Hometown Hockey Rolls Into Windsor

“How could Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia produce both Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon? Who or what led Manitoba to develop Jocelyne Larocque, Brigette Lacquette and Halli Krzyzaniak; three defencemen on our National Women’s Team from neighbouring small towns?” asked MacLean. “On Rogers Hometown Hockey we answer these questions with stories that put actual faces on the heart and soul of our game; the roots of success each and every Sunday.”

Hockey Night in Canada’s MacLean and co-host Tara Slone will present the NHL match-up between the Calgary Flames and the Detroit Red Wings, which will be televised on Sportsnet, on November 20.

“Over the past two seasons, communities across the country have welcomed us with open arms and it has been nothing short of a privilege to be able to share their stories with the rest of Canada,” said Slone. “To do this alongside Ron MacLean, hockey’s greatest raconteur, has been the greatest thrill of my career. I know that both Ron and I are beyond excited for each and every tour stop as we embark on our third season.”
