The new arena being built for the Arizona State hockey team is making progress and staying on track to open in the fall/winter of 2022.

Last November, the new $115-million, 5,000-seat arena in Tempe was approved by the university’s Board of Regents’ Finance, Capital and Resources Committee.

Currently, the Sun Devils play at the 700-seat Oceanside Ice Arena in Tempe.
