Rogers Home­town Hockey an­nounced its 2018-19 tour dates Tues­day will in­clude a stop in Mount Pearl in Novem­ber.

“We are very proud to wel­come Rogers Home­town Hockey to Mount Pearl,” Mayor Dave Aker said in a news re­lease. “Rogers is honour­ing the tra­di­tion of hockey by vis­it­ing the com­mu­ni­ties that con­trib­ute to Canada’s hockey culture, and no one loves hockey more than Mount Pearl.”

Re­turn­ing for a fifth sea­son, the free fam­ily-friendly hockey cel­e­bra­tion fea­tures two days of live entertainm­ent, NHL alumni, lo­cal celebri­ties and hockey-themed ac­tiv­i­ties for all ages.

“Rogers Home­town Hockey gives us the op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate two things we love, hockey and com­mu­nity,” Aker said. “Hockey has deep roots in Mount Pearl. We have a re­spect and a love for the sport and the way it unites our com­mu­nity is noth­ing short of in­cred­i­ble.”

Rogers Home­town Hockey will visit Mount Pearl from Nov. 17-18. Com­plete de­tails of the tour stop will be avail­able on the city’s web­site and so­cial chan­nels as they be­come avail­able.
