After months of planning and preparation, Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada kicked off with an incredible night of storytelling. The Legends of Broadcasting event, held Tuesday night at the Bayview Presentation Centre, saw an awestruck crowd watch Ron MacLean host a panel discussion with Jim Robson, Bernie Pascall, Jim Laing and Tim Ryan.
Stories about chopping trees with Muhammad Ali, the eternal debate between Gretzky vs. Orr and being the voice behind some of the most iconic broadcasts in Canadian sports history brought cheers and laughter.
Unfortunately, snowy weather caused Wednesday morning's activities with school kids to be cancelled. However, the Skate with the Stanley Cup and the Player Draft for Friday's Alumni and Celebrity Classic were still able to go ahead.
