Sportsnet 1 will televise "Rogers Hometown Hockey" on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. ET, prior to the game between the Vancouver Canucks and Anaheim Ducks. The location this week is Saint John, New Brunswick, and the show will celebrate the history of hockey in the city.

Among the features airing on the pregame show:

* Former NHL player Steve Moore details his friendship with Max Arsenault, a local high school student who played hockey and kayaked before fracturing his neck in a snowboarding accident.

* New Brunswick native Luc Bourdon was selected with the No. 10 pick of the 2005 NHL Draft and helped Canada win gold at the World Junior Championships twice. He played 36 games with the Canucks before he died in a motorcycle accident in 2008, and his impact on Vancouver forward Alex Burrows and the Franchise hasn't been forgotten.

* Prospect Joseph Veleno, 16, was granted exceptional status in junior hockey and plays for St. John of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He discusses his first season, the pressure of performing at a young age, and why Saint John is the perfect fit for him.

* A visit to the Saint John City Market, the oldest farmers market in Canada.
