Rogers Hometown Hockey made its way to Mississauga on December 23rd. Ron MacLean, Tara Slone and Don Cherry were live on site for the holiday special broadcast. They told the stories that celebrate the hockey history and culture that puts Mississauga on Canada’s hockey map. There were many special guests, including Don Cherry, former Mississauga mayor Hazel McCallion, and former Canadian Olympian Geraldine Heaney who showed up during the viewing party for the featured game.

Attendees helped support local minor hockey and participated in fun and interactive experiences, autograph signings with NHL alumni Darcy Tucker and CWHL star Natalie Spooner, video game stations and so much more. A family-friendly outdoor hockey space was available to engage hockey fans, interact with NHL Alumni, celebrate the game and play ball hockey. Fans were invited to watch the Detroit Red Wings take on the Toronto Maple Leafs and to top it off there were many musical acts to enjoy throughout the weekend, including David Boyd Janes and the Jim Cuddy Band. It was a great time had by all.
