Yale Corporation Approves $23.5 Million Towards Ingalls Rink Renovation.

CSTV reports that the Yale Corporation has approved the allocation of $23.5 million in funds towards massive renovations at Yale's Ingalls Rink.

The list of renovations for the 50+ year home of Yale hockey include new men's and women's locker rooms, training and strength and conditioning rooms, an added press box, a lower-level hockey heritage area, offices for coaches of both programs, a student-athlete study area, new lights, a new sound system, and a new de-humidification unit.

"We are thrilled to announce the beginning of the Ingalls Rink project. Once completed, Ingalls Rink will have a tremendous impact on our hockey programs as well as the Greater New Haven hockey community. We are extremely grateful to the University and members of our hockey alumni association, who are helping make this renovation a reality," notes Yale AD Tom Beckett.

Ingalls Rink, named after former Yale hockey captains David S. Ingalls, Sr. (1920) and David S. Ingalls, Jr. (1956), first opened in 1958, and features a unique architectural design which incorporates a reinforced concrete arch that spans more than 295 feet in length.

Aside from hosting men's and women's varsity hockey, recreational skating, the Yale Figure Skating Club, intramural hockey, and Yale Youth Hockey also call the famed "Yale Whale" home.

Yale will begin renovating Ingalls following the 2007-2008 hockey season.
