Sportsnet will televise "Rogers Hometown Hockey" on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. ET, prior to the game between the Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks. The location this week is Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, and the show will celebrate the history of hockey in the city.
Among the features airing on the pregame show:
* Before his NHL career, Mike Modano began his junior career in Prince Albert with the Raiders. He played hockey, attended school and had a part-time job at a lumberyard and fell in love with the city.
* Mackenze Stewart had numerous operations after he was born with a hearing loss and was unable to participate in contact sports. When he was 12, he was cleared to play hockey and after practicing and training, he earned a tryout with the Prince Albert Raiders when he was 17. He spent three seasons with them before being selected by the Canucks in the seventh round (No. 186) of the 2014 NHL Draft and is hoping to make his NHL debut soon.
* A trip to Byrne Ranch and an interview with the legendary bull riding family, which includes handling the bulls and finding out what it takes to be a top-ranked bull rider.
