Peterborough gears up for Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada



Peterborough gears up for Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada

Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada is just over two weeks away.

The 13th anniversary of CBC's day-long broadcast, which will originate from Peterborough, Ont., on Feb.9, will feature all seven Canadian NHL teams in action.

Beginning at 12 noon ET, Hockey Night in Canada host Ron MacLean and Coach's Corner star Don Cherry will be on location from the Trent Canal, where the Under the Lock Hockey Tournament is taking place.

“Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada will be an unforgettable day for Canadians, who are devoted fans and truly love this great game,” said Olympic gold medalist, Scotiabank Hockey Ambassador and Hockey Night in Canada reporter Cassie Campbell-Pascall.

“Canadians are passionate hockey fans and we want to make sure this year’s event is a memorable one for everyone whether they attend Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada events or tune into the CBC broadcast.”

The NHL action gets underway at 2 p.m. ET, with the Edmonton Oilers visiting the Detroit Red Wings, while the Winnipeg Jets welcome the Ottawa Senators to the Manitoba capital.

Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada continues following the early games with more from MacLean and Cherry, as well as live look-ins from celebratory events taking place across the country.

Scotiabank Hockey Tonight then tees up the evenings action at 6:30 p.m. ET.

The classic Original Six rivalry between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens goes at the Bell Centre (7 p.m. ET) with the Calgary Flames wrapping up the evenings action by visiting the Canucks in Vancouver (10 p.m. ET).

Scott Oake and Kelly Hrudey close out the day-long broadcast with After Hours following the Flames/Canucks game.

Lloydminster, Alta./Sask., originally scheduled to host this year’s event, will host a full five-day Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada in 2014.
