Michigan State hockey’s Munn Arena renovation complete

EAST LANSING – This Friday marked the completion of the Munn Ice Arena renovation project, originally started in the summer of 2018 but was slowed due to construction delays caused by the pandemic.

The $26.7-million, 35,000-square foot facility was formally dedicated with former Michigan State hockey players, alumni and donors all present to see the upgrade.

The new-look arena will be on display when the Spartans face the US National Team Development Program in an exhibition at 7 pm on Oct. 1. The regular-season opener will be at 7 pm Oct. 7 against Bowling Green.

Those who enter from the south entrance will be immersed in the Ron Mason Hall of History, where directly above the entrance hangs the old scoreboard from Dem Hall, where the Spartans played before Munn was constructed. The lobby has a plethora of MSU hockey memorabilia, including the Hobey Baker awards for Kip Miller in 1990 and Ryan Miller in 2001, busts of former coaches and an ode to former Spartans playing in the NHL.
