Who wouldn’t want to play on an NHL-sized rink in the heart of their city? Ryan O’Quinn says a rink in the unused space in the centre of the Halifax skating oval would make the game more accessible for residents of the city.
But don’t worry – it wouldn’t mean converting the ENTIRE Oval in to a hockey rink; Ryan says the whole thing could fit in the unused middle of the existing rink.
Ryan explains “before you think, ‘That’s not big enough:’ “Guess what? That’ll fit an NHL-sized hockey rink. I measured it.”
Ryan also says he plans to raise the cash needed to make the changes to save the city some money. It could cost up to $1.1 million for his NHL dreams to come true.
