        1 rink in Mississippi and Arkansas? For some reason I find that fascinating.

          1 place designated as an ice hockey rink. There's a handful of other places where you can can skate and/or play hockey that aren't counted.

          I also don't think they count multi-sheet facilities. Minnesota's almost seems a little low because of that.

            Yeah. I have no doubt all of those numbers are way low. Minnesota's got 861 towns. Is there an average of one indoor rink for every town...I say easily.

            But I have to figure the recent increase in national televised exposure of NCAA (BTN, etc) can't hurt. I know this is where everyone says that NCAA hockey doesn't have much of a following. But it represents a springboard from out of reach hockey (NHL) to younger players that are making it (NCAA). It can't help but be an inspiration for some.

              According to Arenamaps.com, this isn't very accurate. For example, Colorado has 51, not 30. Texas has 53, not 22. Vermont has 30, not 18.

              Whatev.

              PS. According to arenamaps, Minny has 531 rinks/arenas.

                  I can't believe this accurate because where I live there are at least 7 hockey rinks in about a 20 mile radius. Northern New York that is...

                    Thought the same thing.Not even close.What about Brown,PC and Johnson and Wales' rinks.

                      The map does state in the lower left that the rink must be designated as an ice hockey rink facility. Perhaps that means that they don't include rinks that also have other purposes.

                          Great map. But I would love to see the local outdoor rinks that are maintained by cities in Minnesota. there might be that many outdoor rinks in the Twin Cities.

                            In Canton-Potsdam alone (10 miles) there is 6 rinks.

                              Rinks in Rhode Island:

                              Meehan (Brown)
                              Schneider (PC)
                              Boss (URI)
                              Adelard (Mt. St. Charles/Woonsocket)
                              RISC (146/North Smithfield)
                              Lynch (Pawtucket)
                              Cranston (2, if you include the bubble)
                              Thayer and Warburton (Warwick)
                              Portsmouth Abbey
                              St. George's
                              Levy Rink (Burrilville)
                              West Warwick
                              Smithfield Municipal
                              Middletown

                              I suppose you could even include the Dunkin' Donuts Center, though only the P-Bruins get to play there.

                              Not sure where they're getting three from.
