Centre Ice Arena Needs Help to Keep Red Wings Training Camp, NHL Tournament in TC

Centre Ice Arena needs your help to make sure the Detroit Red Wings Training Camp and NHL Prospect Tournament continue come back to Traverse City.

NHL safety standards have changed for rinks that host events with players, including a different type of glass and new netting.

Even after a huge donation from Traverse City Tourism, they still need help raising another $110,000 to bring their rinks up to NHL standards.

“We went to the Red Wings and said, ‘Hey guys, we need a commitment, we need you to commit to come for x amount of years because this is a huge commitment on our part this financial expenditure.’ So they did, we got a five year commitment from them,” said Terry Marchand, Centre Ice Arena executive director.

The arena will also be hosting several exciting events to help raise money. For more information on those events, click here.
