Sportsnet will televise "Rogers Hometown Hockey" on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. ET, prior to the game between the Edmonton Oilers and Montreal Canadiens. The location this week is Edmonton, Alberta, and the show will celebrate the history of hockey in the city.

Among the features airing on the pregame show:

* An interview with former NHL player Ray Whitney, who was born in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, and had a successful 20-season NHL career with 385 goals and 1,064 points in 1,130 regular-season games. He won the Stanley Cup with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006, defeating his hometown Oilers.

* A look at Sport Central, an Alberta-based charity formed in 1991. It provides sports equipment to children in need at no cost. The generosity of Edmonton residents has led to more than 125,000 low-income kids being able to play with usable and safe sports gear.

* A tour of the city from Edmonton mayor Don Iveson.
