The Rostraver Ice Gardens which suffered a roof collapse in 2010, made the second round of voting to become Hockeyville USA, which includes up to $150,000 for building upgrades and hosting an NHL preseason game. Upgrades will include a compressor, new matting, and LED lighting, if the funds allow.

The Rostraver Ice Garden continues to bask in the glow of winning the Kraft Hockeyville USA 2017 contest.

From noon to 2:30 p.m. Thursday, the Rostraver Township rink will host a public viewing of the Stanley Cup, in the possession of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The viewing is part of a four-day event celebrating the Hockeyville USA title and more than $150,000 in improvements to the local arena.

The Penguins, who beat the Nashville Predators in the Stanley Cup Final in June, practiced at the Ice Garden in the 1970s. The team will return for a practice session at 11 a.m. Sunday, prior to a preseason game against the St. Louis Blues.

The Ice Garden will not host the preseason game , which will be played at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry.
