New Hockey Arena In Penn.

Pennsylvania State University in University Park, Pa., has received a $88 million private gift that will fund a new ice hockey arena next to the 15,000-capacity Bryce Jordan Center.

The arena is 6,000 capacity and is expected to open its doors December 2013.

The new arena would not likely be an additional concert venue, a Bryce Jordan Center spokesman told Pollstar, although the year-round recreational facility could be a good place for ice shows.
