Predators Excited to Announce Two New Sheets of Ice in Bellevue

Nashville just announced another rink into the area because of the growing hockey interest here.

Yet the two sheets in franklin closed years ago.

I'd rather they would've helped the Clarksville fort Campbell area out instead like the hurricanes did for fort bragg.

Well isnt that interesting.... so not only are they contributing financially to the construction of the facilities but their also managing it once it opens. I think thats fabulous. A little bit unusual at the same time as I'm not aware of any other NHL club that beyond a financial contribution for amateur facilities, staging clinics & camps etc actually manages the building as well so good for them in that department. That shows a really serious commitment. Sinking deep roots. Excellent.

The League should share the Predators' playbook (beginning from the ousting of Boots) with all teams operating in non-traditional markets. Preds have done excellent work, although it definitely helps that their hockey operations have been up to the task as well.

I was thinking, "Why do the Preds have any interest in hockey in the Seattle area?"

Good for them, yes they are one of the true success stories as it relates to southern expansion.

I'm not entirely sure if the Flames have interest/control of either the Winsport facility in Calgary or the Flames Community arena. I know they have an active presence at both facilities (Flames and the Islanders are practicing at Winsport tomorrow).

WInnipeg Jets own and manage the MTS Iceplex, a 4-sheet year round facility that not only serves as the training facility for the Jets and AHL Moose, but serves for numerous community teams and facilities as well.

Don't the Coyotes own and operate the Ice Dens as well?

I know the Knights are planning on constructing a second ice facility in Henderson within the next few years in addition to the currently under construction facility in Summerlin.

The Ducks manage the rinks they have bought and will manage the new 4 sheet facility in Irvine; they are all part of the Ducks "The Rinks" program.

I did not know that and highly approve.

I dont know that they actually own it or manage the Ice Den's in Scottsdale & Chandler, but they do have a "partnership" of sorts. "Official Training Facility" of the Coyotes with events & promotions, the amateur Coyote's teams playing out of the Ice Den & so on and so yes, despite everything else the Coyotes over the past 20yrs have done what they can to foster the growth of the game in the state. Absolutely. Had they decent ownership since 96 I'm sure even more would have been done.

Sounds like a great program. Warms my heart to hear about things like this.
