They should name it the Robin Bawa Arena. He's the only Indian hockey player I've ever heard of.
It's a hot climate for most of India, it makes sense that Hockey isn't that big there for there to be an arena.

Did a quick google search for "Indo-Canadian" hockey players and it brought up these guys...

Manny Malhotra - NYR/Dal/CBJ/Sharks
Ajay Baines - WHL/AHL
Robin Bawa - Canucks back in the day
Prabh Rai - was just signed I think by the Canucks to an ELC.

Thing is, they're canadian. If these guys wanted to help promote the sport in India, this would be a good time, while there is an influx of young indo canadian hockey players playing in junior leagues. It's truly starting to become a really diverse sport.
