Talk about a recruiting tool... the new hockey facilities are amazing. I can see the PSU Hockey programs staying top-ranked for a very long time.
Some history on the recently built Pegula Ice Arena from Wikipedia.
The Pegula Ice Arena is a 6,014-seat multi-purpose arena in University Park, Pennsylvania on the campus of Penn State University. The arena opened on October 11, 2013. The facility is located on the corner of Curtin Road and University Drive near the Bryce Jordan Center. It was announced on January 21, 2011 that the arena would be named in honor of Kim and Terry Pegula (who own the Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bills franchises) whose $100 million donation helped fund the arena and the creation of men's and women's varsity ice hockey programs.
On September 17, 2010 it was officially announced the men's and women's ice hockey programs would move to the NCAA Division I level for the 2012-13 season. The teams competed in the existing 1,350-seat Penn State Ice Pavilion until the new arena was completed. The main ice arena features a main competition ice arena with seating for about 6,000 spectators. The facility also includes a practice rink, offices, locker rooms and player areas. The facility was 100% privately funded as part of the $100 million gift, the largest in the university's history, to advance the men's and women's ice hockey programs to the NCAA Division I level and provide a suitable facility for that move.
