Big Rapids, Mich. - Ferris State University's Ewigleben Ice Arena was tabbed as one of the Top 12 Hockey Arena Experiences in Michigan as announced on Wednesday by Stadium Journey, an online website devoted venues across the country.
The article notes that while Minnesota may be known as the state of hockey, Michigan may have the best collection of hockey venues in the United States.
Ferris State's Ewigleben Ice Arena was featured among the top 12 facilities across the state with venues currently hosting teams in leagues such as the NHL, AHL, ECHL, OHL, USHL, NAHL and collegiate hockey. The top 12 listing was released in recognition of the date, 12/12/12.
Stadium Journey noted this about the Ewigleben Ice Arena:
"The doors open 60 minutes before the game begins. Fifty-five minutes before the game, the student section is already half full. You know it's going to be a great atmosphere when the students are that anxious to get into the game."
Along with the Ewigleben Ice Arena, the listing also included such venues as Joe Louis Arena, Van Andel Arena and Yost Ice Arena among others.
