Hockey on Plastic?


MAGGLINGEN, Switzerland – Winter has gone. It’s not freezing anymore outside. Also not in Magglingen, the village above Biel, Switzerland, that can be reached by cable-car. Kids are playing hockey under a tent on a strange, whitish surface. Just like during the 2009 World Championship by both arenas. Ice hockey? Actually, the surface is as unfrozen as the rest. It’s plastic.

How do you stop on plastic ice??

I'd also bet that plastic ice chews away at the blades pretty quickly.
