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

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."
