It'll be less than a week before skates hit the ice for the start of another hockey season at Mosaic Place.

Many residents are beginning to squirm waiting for things to start up, but it'll be worth the wait when the brand new boards and glass are put into action.Mosaic Place New Glass

Renovations and upgrades to the rink's boards and glass are complete, and the crew at Mosaic Place are spending the rest of the week getting the ice ready for upcoming camps that start next week. 

"We've went ahead and upgraded to the NHL standard and a WHL mandate for a seamless glass system with a top dasher," explained Director of Facility Operations, Myles Fister. "It's going to allow the glass to flex when players go into the boards, it's going to alleviate a lot of injuries to the players especially for concussions, and it's also going to allow the fans to have a heightened experience."

Officials were excited to see that player safety is coming first for the upcoming 2018-2019 seasons, but fans will be sure to notice a difference... especially those who sit close to the glass according to Fister.

"All those old metal posts are all gone, so you're going to have a clear line of sight right from the corner to the corner, you won't have any obstructions at all."

With brand new signage on the ice and everything in place, Firster noted all that their attention is getting the ice ready for action as Mosaic Place will start to buzz on Monday with the Moose Jaw Warriors Kids Camp beginning.

What we're going to do for the next three to four days is just build the ice surface up, as we need to build the ice up about an inch for player safety. Sometime around Sunday we should be finished with that, and then on Monday it'll be full hockey season again."

These upgrades were shared between the Downtown Facility and Fieldhouse, and the Warriors organization which had a price tag of well over $400,000.

"I've got to say we're really excited about this upcoming hockey season, we're really fortunate that we were able to partner with the Warriors to complete this project. We look forward to seeing everyone out there, it's going to be a great season."
