The National Hockey Center is primarily a hockey facility, featuring two Olympic size sheets of ice. The plan called for enhancing the fan experience and converting the facility into a multipurpose venue. End seating was added to expand the seating count from 6,000 seats to 7,000 seats.

Twenty-four luxury suites were also added in addition to a new front entrance and atrium. The atrium includes ticketing, administration, improved vertical circulation, a team pro-shop and access to the suite level. The additions provide all new concourses, restrooms and concessions.

"The Herb Brooks National Hockey Center has been transformed into one of the finest facilities in the country." Bob Motzko, Head Hockey Coach, SCSU
