Sportsnet will televise "Rogers Hometown Hockey" on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET, prior to the game between the San Jose Sharks and Vancouver Canucks. The location this week is Victoria, British Columbia, and the show will celebrate the history of hockey in the city.

Among the features airing on the pregame show:

* Larry Orr has used his garage to sharpen skates for kids for more than 20 years. When his wife was diagnosed with MS, he opened a skate shop on the North Saanich Peninsula to stay close to her. Two of the kids who used to come to his shop are Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn and his brother, defenseman Jordie Benn.

* Geoff Courtnall spent time playing hockey with his siblings in Victoria. He and his brother, Russ, learned everything from their father, and went on to have long NHL careers. But they've also done a lot of work for the community.

* In this week's "My Hometown Must," Olympic gold medalist Adam Kreek teaches reporter Tara Slone how to row along Elk Lake.
