CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Rogers Hometown Hockey will roll into Charlottetown Oct. 22.

It was one of the first four stops announced by the company on Thursday. The remaining 20 stops will be announced in September.

The two-day celebration takes place every Saturday and Sunday, beginning Oct. 7 and 8 in Niagara Falls, Ont.

“This tour is about discovering all the ways that hockey is woven into the fabric of our nation, and these opening communities will set the stage for a phenomenal season of doing just that,” said Ron MacLean, who co-hosts with Tara Slone.
