What's New -  March 19, 2021 - We've just added a new arena review featuring Roos House Athletic Center in Canton, New York, home of the SUNY Canton Kangaroos.  You can view the full review and photo gallery on the RTR Arena Reviews page. 


What's Next  -  We are currently unsure of the future of Roaming The Rinks, and have no plans to watch hockey anytime soon, until arenas can be full, and fans can attend without capacity limits, a vaccine passport, negative test result, or a mask.  If that ever happens we will be back on the road watching hockey, If not, so be it. We are thankful for the travels, experiences, and memories from attending games at over 240 different arenas.  We will keep the page online for others to view and read about the various arenas in our travels.  Feel free to browse our reviews and photos anytime on the RTR Arena Reviews page.   Thanks to all of our followers for the support.  Stay free!  

Plan your next hockey road trip! -  We've once again built 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 links for over 100 college, pro, semi-pro and junior leagues are posted now.

The Plus/Minus Arena Report is back -  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 expand -   This week another hockey fan has joined Roaming The Rinks Nation, which now has over 60 members.  Jason Sullivan of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin submitted the list of arenas where they have seen games and has become the newest member of RTR Nation.  Congrats Jason!   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.
