What's new - October 17, 2017 - We've just added a new arena review featuring Southwood Arena in Woodstock, Ontario, home of the PJHL's Woodstock Navy Vets.  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 Thompson Arena in London, Ontario.  This arena is home of the Western Ontario University Mustangs and we saw a neutral site game between Waterloo and Carleton at the school's annual early season East-West Tournament. Check out all the latest reviews on the RTR Arena Reviews page. 

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 2017-2018 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. 

Put a +1 in the Roaming The Rinks Nation column -   This week another hockey fan has joined Roaming The Rinks Nation, which now has over 60 members.  Roger Katz of Thomaston, Connecticut submitted the list of arenas where he has attended games and has become the newest member of RTR Nation.  Congrats Roger!   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 in full swing.  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.
