Well, itís public now so here it is...moving hockey to the Patty Center is officially under consideration, due mostly to the Dunleavy Debacle.

I wonder if UAA would be now considering the same at the WFSC. Or, consider adding Ice to the AAC.

WFSC is the only option if they do move, as they have a nice locker room on campus and a crap one for visitors unlike the UA_ pouring millions of dollars of upgrades into a rental building instead of their own.......

Anyone know what the seating capacity of the Farg is?

WFSC 750
1,300-seat Patty Ice Arena
What size is the ice in each one?

The ice in the Farg is NHL size. I discussed this with people in the UAA athletic department years ago, and they said the Farg could not be expanded and that it would not work to play hockey there. I think a move like this would absolutely kill recruiting.

I believe Patty is NHL size as well. This move nearly happened a few years ago, and IMO probably should have.

The long-term goal has been to remodel and expand the Patty Center into a facility that seats around 3000 for hockey and get out of the Carlson Center. The most likely scenario, especially in this environment, is using a
public-private partnership. This is how the Wood Center was renovated and expanded a few years ago. But itíll be a while before anything comes to fruition.

If they rip out the bleachers and put in actual seats, like they did on the basketball/volleyball side of the Patty a few years ago, and upgrade the sound, scoreboard, and a few other things it wouldnít be a bad solution. It would be something similar to Ferris Stateís setup with the low ceiling.

I agree it would be extremely difficult to recruit too. Even 10s of millions $ wouldn't bring it up to par.
Never been in the Patty Center so have no idea what it's like but I'm hoping with several million $ they could bring it up to something they could recruit too.
Don't like to be in bed with UA_ but darn it like it or not we're in this thing together.

Dunleavy already did that, just as they were starting to recover from the last time their necks were in the hangmanís noose.

In addition to Dunleavy trying to send Alaska back to the territorial days, the other issue is the ice plant at the Carlson is dying a slow death.

Is that the original ice plant from 1990?
