Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

Fans across Canada -- especially those in the Whitehorse, Yukon area -- have been celebrating for a few days already, but the best of Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada is yet to come.

CBC will start its full day of coverage at noon ET (simulcast on NHL Network-U.S.) with Hockey Day in Canada Live, hosted by Ron MacLean.

It'll be an emotional day for MacLean, who learned to skate in Whitehorse while his father, Ron Sr., was stationed at Canadian Forces Station Whitehorse. MacLean has his father with him on this trip, and said it's the first time in 43 years his father has been to Whitehorse.

Hockey Day In Canada: Yukon week-long celebration

"This event really has turned into, instead of being a 13 1/2-hour broadcast, it's a five-day event."
-- Joe Darling, CBC Sports

In his role as host of CBC's major hockey broadcasts, Ron MacLean has had a front row seat for dozens of big-time events.

This year's Scotiabank Hockey Day In Canada, however, could trump them all.

The day-long event, which will take place Feb. 12 in Whitehorse, Yukon, will bring MacLean back to his personal hockey roots.

"Dad was stationed with the military in White Horse," MacLean said. "That's where I got introduced to hockey."
Quote of the Day

It's a big milestone for me and I'm happy to help my team with lots of good teammates. It's fun.
