Mobile Ice-Making Equipment for NHL Classic in City

By Tyler Sutherland

The world’s largest mobile rink refrigeration unit will be on display Saturday in anticipation for the 2011 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic.

A special fan event is planned at the Canadian Tire on McPhilips Street to promote the upcoming outdoor matchup between the Montreal Canadiens and Calgary Flames.

The 53-foot custom-built trailer houses the specialized equipment that will be used to make the rink for the event, and is travelling the country on a 3,500 km journey.

The tour will stop in Calgary on February 9 as the truck arrives at McMahon Stadium to begin the rink build.

Kris King, Vice President of NHL Hockey Operations, will be on hand to greet fans from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The game airs Sunday, February 20 at 5 p.m. CT on CBC.
