Painting the rink for Rochester Hockey Day


ROCHESTER (KTTC) -- The rink for the Second Annual Rochester Hockey Day is one more step to being competition-ready.

Workers for Graham Arena prepared the ice Wednesday for the annual hockey game.

They installed all the art work on the outdoor rink... the blue lines, red lines and face off dots.

Graham Arena manager Bob Montross says the installation of the art work is not as easy as it looks.

"Really the big challenge last year and today is really the wind," said Montross.  "It's a paper line so it blows a little bit but we got a good crew. A lot of guys are helping so its working."

Montrose says the laying of the art work took about four hours.

The Second Annual Hockey Day Rochester takes place a week from this Saturday.
