2K Sports announced the complete details for the Toronto stop of its “The REAL Hockey Experience on Wii” NHL 2K11 preview tour today. It was already known that the tour bus would be stopping in Toronto next Tuesday, August 17th, and Wednesday, August 18th, but the where and when were a little fuzzy, until now.

On Tuesday, the tour will be stopping at the Pro Hockey Life at Vaughan Mills, in Vaughan, Ontario (not actually part of Toronto – that’s for the non-Canadian folks out there) from 1 pm to 4 pm. Visitors will get the chance to see, and possibly meet and play the game with Vancouver Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa. On Wednesday, the tour will set down at the Hockey Hall of Fame in downtown Toronto from 1 pm to 3 pm. Columbus Blue Jackets forward Rick Nash will be on hand at that stop, to meet and greet visitors, kind of making it a double-bonus for people visiting the Hockey Hall of Fame that day. We’re hoping to check out the Tuesday stop ourselves. We would go the Wednesday stop, but we’ll be playing games at Microsoft’s X’10 holiday preview event that day instead.

Update (08/12/10):

We received word from 2K today that there was a mistake in the announcement’s timing of the Hockey Hall of Fame stop.  That stop will be happening from 3 pm to 6 pm, and Rick Nash will only be there for a short period of time, at the beginning.
