What's the Future Like For New NHL Arenas?

Ryan Kennedy speaks to Peter Luukko and Gary Green about Mullett Arena, the new UBS Arena and Climate Pledge Arena, hockey in Arizona and more.

We caught up with Peter Luukko, co-chair of the Oak View Group, and Gary Green of BBB Architects on some of the newest rinks across the NHL.

The Oak View Group has been central to getting NHL arena projects done, like Seattle's Climate Pledge Arena and the New York Islanders' UBS Arena. Oak View will also manage Mullett Arena. 

Green, a former NHL coach with the Washington Capitals and a longtime broadcaster, is now a senior director and consultant with BBB, which designed Mullett Arena.
