Another delay for SLU’s Appleton Arena

Appleton Arena delay

CANTON, N.Y. (WWNY) - There's been another delay for St. Lawrence University's Appleton Arena project.

On Facebook, the men's and women's hockey coaches told the St. Lawrence community that significant progress has been made to the ice rink, but conditions are not ready to make and maintain the ice surface to their standards.

Now the opening of the arena will be in January after students return from winter break.

This is the second delay the university has announced.

The iconic hockey barn is undergoing a $17 million upgrade.
