What's new - December 26, 2016 - We've just added a new arena review featuring the INVISTA Centre in Kingston, Ontario, home of the OJHL's Kingston Voyageurs.  You can view the full review and photo gallery on the RTR Arena Reviews page. 


Coming Soon -  Next up we'll have a review of Appleton Arena in Canton, New York, where this amazing old arena is home of the St. Lawrence University Skating Saints.  Stay tuned and check the RTR Arena Reviews  page for the latest reviews all season long.

Plan your next hockey road trip! -  We're building what we hope to be the most comprehensive list of schedule links for North American hockey fans on the web.  If you are planning a trip check out the RTR Schedule Resource page which you can use as a starting point to get all of the schedule information you need.  Schedules for the 2016-2017 season are being added as they are announced!

Keep up to date on arena and team changes -  We'll be keeping tabs of new arena opportunities for fans, franchise moves, arena closures, and related information for college, pro, and junior hockey leagues across North America.  Check out the Plus/Minus Arena Report and stay up to date on what's happening in the volatile world of hockey arenas. 

Roaming The Rinks Nation continues to grow  -   This week another hockey fan has joined  Roaming The Rinks Nation, which now has over 60 members.  Paul Weisel of Orefield, Pennsylvania has submitted a list of over 100 arenas where he has seen hockey.  Paul is also a former racecar driver and avid race fan and has his racetrack list on our sister site, and has thus earned RTR Dual Citizenship.  Congrats Paul!  If you have also seen college, pro, or junior hockey games at 20 or more arenas let us know and get featured on this site and become part of the Nation!

Keep tabs on where Roaming The Rinks will be - Hockey season is coming soon.  We've got lots of plans to attend new venues.  To find out where we will be check out the Roaming The Rinks Tour page.
