    I ran across this, it gives a snapshot of each arena. However, it doesn't show Oceanside for ASU, it shows their alternate site (talk about extreme differences between the two!)

      Breaking news, Michigan Tech is now claiming Little Ceasars Arena as their home rink since we play multiple home games there every year.
      #1 Michigan Tech - 19,515
      Woo hoo!

      PS We also let the Red Wings use our hockey rink when we are not using it.

            Interesting. Some were a lot smaller than I assumed. And some were bigger. I'd like to see one with average attendance. Does OSU really fill that barn?

                  Shane Frederick is stepping down as the sports editor at the Mankato Free Press and is getting out of the newspaper business. Hes been on the Maverick Hockey beat for 20 years.

                  I believe he has run the media poll for the WCHA Preseason The last few years as well?

                    Good luck to Shane. Did a great job despite having to write about the Mavs. [emoji6]

                    Will Tech Hockey Guide carry the torch with the polls?

                        Wishing him all the best in the future. He was absolutely top-notch.

                            Its been claimed, as shown by Wikipedia, as their alternate off-campus site.

                            However, Michigan, MSU, Ferris might also be claiming it, remains to be seen.

                              I thought it was good for all to see at least a snapshot picture of the various arenas being discussed and those we have not been to.
