Estevan Bruins Return to HOME Ice after July Floods
On July 10, 2016 Affinity Place was severely affected by the massive flooding that hit Estevan and surrounding area. Water levels rose to 6 feet in the ice plant mechanical room and submerged all electrical components, controls, pumps, motors and compressors. Virtually everything in the ice plant had to be replaced and re-installed.
With the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League regular season quickly approaching, staff, contractors, and management of Affinity Place have been working diligently to ensure that the Estevan Bruins will begin the season on their home ice.
Currently the Power Dodge Ice Centre’s (formerly LMC) ice plant is cooling Affinity Place’s ice sheet until the repairs are completed. Once the repairs are complete, the controls will be switched back to Affinity Place’s ice plant, and the Power Dodge Ice Centre ice season can begin. Timelines will be confirmed at a later date.
We would like to thank our contractors and staff for their hard work to get the majority of the damage cleaned up.
We would also like to thank the Estevan Bruins, Estevan Minor Hockey, and Estevan Figure Skating Club for their patience.
The City of Estevan Leisure Services Division and Affinity Place would like to welcome fans from Estevan and surrounding area when the Estevan Bruins kick off their 2016-2017 Saturday, September 17 against the Melville Millionaires.
