Rogers Hometown Hockey is returning to Wood Buffalo.
Sportsnet annouced its 2019-2020 25-stop tour on Tuesday, with Wood Buffalo chosen as one of the stops this November.
“We are excited to welcome Rogers Hometown Hockey back to Wood Buffalo and to celebrate our love of Canada’s national winter sport with all Canadians,” said Mayor Don Scott. “This event is a fantastic opportunity to showcase our communities and spirit while offering residents a weekend of unforgettable experiences and festivities.”
The event, hosted by Ron Maclean and Tara Slone, will feature live entertainment, NHL alumni autograph signings and meet and greets, games, free giveaways from partners, a live pre-game and NHL game broadcast, among other things.
Fort McMurray first hosted this event in November 2014.
More information on festivities will be released on the RMWB’s social media channels as it becomes available.
