Dan Craig, N.H.L Hockey Operations, confirms that FastICE may be the most significant change in ice making since the invention of the Ice Resurfacer. “The current Ice Resurfacers are essentially manual machines. FastICE brings us into this century. The system adds precision control to the process, which is incredibly important.”
Dan Ahearn, Ice-Technician, United Center (Chicago Blackhawks) is excited about FastICE. “The system is good for Ice Technicians, business, players, and fans! It makes my job easier and gives me more control to make perfect ice. The bottom line energy savings are so significant; the system would pay for itself even in less demanding, non professional, arenas. Fewer cuts and ruts dramatically improve the ice surface for the players, and the fans can enjoy increased game-speed."
Jason Spezza, (Ottawa Senators): “When you see individuals with the commitment and passion towards their work it’s hard not to pay them the respect they deserve.”
Don Cherry, CBC Hockey Night in Canada: “They live to make the perfect ice conditions, you can see the pride when they accomplish that feat, they are the best, I call them “the Ice Men”.
