  • Hockey Comes To Coors Field

    Coors Field hosts its first NHL game this month, which made us wonder: What does it take to build a hockey rink inside a baseball stadium?

     •  

    By The Numbers

    2 ~ Ice thickness, in inches, needed to withstand the elements (indoor rinks are closer to one inch thick)

    20,000 ~ Approximate gallons of water required to make the ice

    350 ~ Gallons of water-soluble paint used to whiten the surface of the ice

    200 ~ Workers needed over the course of a week to build the rink, stages, benches, etc.
