They started as part of 10 finalists, and through three rounds of voting that put them in the top four and top two, Rostraver Ice Garden has prevailed and won the "Hockeyville USA" crown. The announcement was made during the Rangers/Senators game on Saturday.
The arena has won $150,000 dollars in rink improvements, and the Penguins announced Rostraver will host an NHL preseason game between the Pens and St. Louis Blues on September 24th. The team used to hold training camp at Rostraver in the 1970s.
It marks the second time in three years that the Kraft Hockeyville USA competition has been won by a town and rink in Western Pennsylvania. Johnstown was the inaugural winner in 2015.
Thanks to everyone who voted, and congrats to the staff at The Ice Garden!
