Rogers Hometown Hockey: Grand Falls-Windsor, Nfld.

Newfoundland-born players in NHL, senior league team among featured stories @NHL

Sportsnet 1 will televise "Rogers Hometown Hockey" on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. ET, prior to the game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Islanders. The location this week is Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland, and the show will celebrate the history of hockey in the city.

Among the features airing on the pregame show:

* Twenty-eight Newfoundlanders have played in the NHL, many whom are more well-known than Alex Faulkner, the first to do so. He scored two goals in the Stanley Cup Final with the Detroit Red Wings in 1963 and is still highly regarded in Newfoundland.

* Ryane Clowe, Michael Ryder and Daniel Cleary are three of the more well-known Newfoundlanders to play in the NHL. Broadcaster Bob Cole discusses each of their careers.

* A look at the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts, who have won the Herder Memorial Trophy as Senior League champions of Newfoundland and Labrador for three straight seasons. Because of financial difficulties, the league almost folded before the season.

* A trip to Grand Falls-Windsor to harvest cranberries, in this week's 'My Hometown Must'
