Archie has been many places - inside the Target Center, on CHS Field, and recently even raced at Ogilvie Raceway.  However, he's never been put on ice, until now.  Introducing Archie the Zamboni!

At the site of the old Downtown St. Paul Macy's, TRIA Rink at Treasure Island Center celebrated its grand opening on Tuesday.  Servicing the ice of TRIA Rink will be a Zamboni wrapped in an image of Archie with the St. Paul skyline in the background.

Along with being the practice center for the Minnesota Wild, TRIA Rink plans to have about 5,000 hours of ice time each year for camps, clinics, and tournaments.  With 1,200 seats, it will also be the new home of Hamline University's hockey teams.
