Rogers Hometown Hockey | Kingston Ontario

The weekend of December 20 & 21, the Rogers Hometown Hockey tour stopped in the city of Kingston, Ontario for a fun packed outdoor hockey festival filled with free activities for all ages. This was a national campaign from Scotiabank proposing that Canada actually has five seasons – spring, summer, winter, fall and hockey season.

Fun right?! Oui oui!

Home to NHL Alumni Doug Gilmour - this was an event not to be missed as great prizes and giveaways were won from Xbox, Samsung, McDonald’s and the Toronto Maple Leafs, local bands were enjoyed and hockey fun was had all around.

With 25 different communities to be visited across Canada, the city of Kingston was joined by Sportsnet Central hosts Ken Reid and Evanka Osmak, NHL Alumni Doug Gilmour and Wendel Clark for autograph sessions, and of course Don Cherry. The highlight of the event was an outdoor viewing party watching Ron MacLean host a live broadcast of the Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Chicago Blackhawks NHL game from the Sportsnet Mobile Studio on Sunday night.

Perfect for families, couples and children - be sure to visit your local Rogers Hometown Hockey community event!
