We all work hard to keep kids involved in the great game of hockey.  Unfortunately for the approximately 4,000 people in the small Minnesota town of Wadena, this task was made much more difficult when a tornado ripped through their rink in June.  With all the devastation, their Zamboni, floor, and compressors managed to survive the storm.  Take a look at the YouTube video below to see some of the photos from the arena.
