Fan feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, " Remick added.

"There has been such a great feeling of excitement surrounding the Black Bears Junior Hockey program coming to our area," said Jim Rubush, President of Fence and Deck Connection Inc. "I have personally spent countless hours at the Piney Orchard Ice Arena for both Metro's Youth and Arch Bishop Spalding High School's (ASHS) hockey and have watched the arena transform into a professional establishment. It's a pleasure for Fence & Deck Connection to support the rink's growth, ASHS, and the promising Black Bear hockey franchise."
