Hidden Hockey Rink Stadium

Hidden Hockey Rink by Dave Delisle

I’m a fan of the NHL’s outdoor games, but I feel that the viewing experience for fans in lower seats must be somewhat poor, despite being closest to the rink. If only the rink was sunken into the ground! Well now that there are football stadiums with grass fields that slide outside, that is a possibility. Read the rest of this entry

Mini Table Top Hockey by Dave Delisle

This is a combination of THREE hobbies I had when I was kid: tabletop hockey, hockey cards, and hockey sticker albums. I present a mini tabletop hockey set that is adorned with players and stickers found in hockey card packs. This sort of thing would only be possible if a tabletop manufacturer partnered with a hockey card maker.

I was just thinking about how these things I enjoyed as a kid are essentially extinct today. To make these ancient things appealing to today’s kids, I felt a combination of toys and playing cards might draw their attention, sort of like Bakugan. Read the rest of this entry

Calgary Stetson Arena Concept

Calgary Flames Stetson Arena

This concept for the Calgary Flames is an arena shaped like a stetson hat, thanks to a pair of flanking ramps that usher fans into the upper concourse.
