WHY BUY THIS? Because we love Hockey, and hopefully you do too. And, unless you live in Minnesota or Wisconsin or somewhere else where you can skate on a frozen pond six months out of the year, buying synthetic ice sheets for Hockey is the closest you will get to an outdoor ice rink. Yes, you can skate on synthetic ice. And it is easy to assemble, which is the key. If your kids play hockey and you do not want to drag them to a stick n’ shoot, this is the solution for you. You can also take a look at an Air Hockey Table for your Man Cave, which unfortunately won’t help you improve your Hockey skills. Oh, and you’re going to need the Folding Pro Hockey Goal with Backstops and Targets for your synthetic ice rink.
