Design of Hockey Rinks and the Development of Standards


Since its inception, the game of ice hockey has evolved as a result of a convergence of ideas from Canada, the United States, and Europe. As a result of differing influences, there is a wide variety of playing facilities currently in use, accompanied by wide disparities in the margins of safety to players, officials, and spectators. This report reviews studies on rink design presently in progress to facilitate the development of a standard for hockey rinks.
