Ice is going down throughout the leagues which means hockey season is almost here! OKC Barons ice will be installed soon in the Cox Arena — the installation and painting will be done on September 16th. Check out the newest AHL ice in Des Moines, Iowa. My first hockey road trip of the season will be to Des Moines for the opening weekend of Iowa Wild history. And guess who the Wild will play? Lucky for me, the Iowa Wild face the OKC Barons to make history that weekend.
Notice the bit of luck the LA Kings mascot Bailey included in the home ice crease? I’m thinking the OKC Barons could use a bit of that luck this coming season! What do you think?
Iowa Wild ice is ready at Wells Fargo Center in Des Moines. (Link to video):
Ice is being painted at the Los Angeles Kings home at Staples Center:
