It was a very exciting morning for hockey fans in the southwest, as Rogers announced the locations for their 2nd annual Hometown Hockey tour with Swift Current making the schedule!
Ron MacLean, Tara Sloane and the rest of the Hometown Hockey crew will be coming to the city January 9th and 10th, with a full weekend of activities to celebrate our game. More details from the weekend will be announced in the weeks and months to come, but it's also expected to be a busy weekend for hockey in the community with minor hockey action and the Swift Current Broncos hosting the Moose Jaw Warriors on the Sunday afternoon, with that game airing live on Sportsnet. The feature NHL matchup on the Sunday night will see Maple Creek's Zack Smith and the Ottawa Senators taking on Alex Ovechkin's Washington Capitals on Sportsnet.
Swift Current Mayor Jerrod Schafer shared the exciting news with us on the Magic Morning Show today.
Mark your calendars for Rogers Hometown Hockey, and if you're interested in volunteering, you can call the City's Community Services Department at 306-778-2787.
