The Minnesota Wild’s new practice facility called TRIA Rink at Treasure Island Center is located just a few blocks away from Xcel Energy Center. The NHL-sized ice rink will be on the top floor of the historic Dayton’s building, a St. Paul landmark since its construction in 1963. In the building, the Wild will occupy both the basement and the upper-level rink in the practice facility.
When the Wild are not practicing, the Tria Rink will be available for community use. Hamline University men’s and women’s hockey teams will use the space for their home games. This space for with also be used for other youth, college and adult leagues too. It won’t be used just for hockey, access to ice time is open to broomball, figure skating, and other ice-related activities.
The new facility can seat 1,200 spectators. The expectation is that TRIA Rink will be the premier location for practices, games, and tournaments all year long.
NAC installed a state of the art building automation system geared towards ice rink management along with maintaining energy efficiency.
