COLUMBUS, OHIO – With demand for ice at unprecedented levels in Central Ohio, the OhioHealth Chiller Ice Rinks and JMAC, Inc., parent company of the Chillers and National Hockey League’s Columbus Blue Jackets, are excited to announce expansion plans to add a third ice sheet at Chiller North, located in Lewis Center.  Construction will begin soon with the goal of opening the new ice surface in December 2018.

 The expansion at Chiller North, which will encompass approximately 30,000 square feet at a cost of $5 million, will be the third major Chiller project overseen by Rodgers Incorporated, including construction of Chiller North in 2004 and the NTPRD Chiller in Springfield in 2014.

 “As youth and amateur hockey and skating programs continue to grow in Columbus, the timing is right for us to add to our nine existing ice sheets,” said Wendy Herb, President and General Manager of the OhioHealth Chillers. “Our team is focused on providing the resources and opportunities for area youth and adults to participate in ice sports and recreation, and this additional rink will certainly help us do that.”

 The Chiller North expansion will add one regulation National Hockey League rink, 200 x 85 feet, four public locker rooms with shower facilities, as well as two larger private locker rooms that can serve as home base for area high school or travel hockey teams.  The additional sheet of ice will provide approximately 80 weekly hours for high demand programming at the facility. 

 Chiller North is home to several area high school, youth and travel hockey programs.  Additional programs include:  the Blue Jackets Hockey School, Jr. Jackets Learn to Play and Learn to Skate classes, the Chiller Adult Hockey League, public skating sessions, birthday parties and private group rentals.

 Mike Priest, President of JMAC, Inc. and the Blue Jackets, said growing the game of hockey at a grassroots level through participation opportunities has been a long-term commitment and passion of the McConnell family and the NHL club.

 “The McConnell family, along with our Chiller staff and Blue Jackets team, is proud to provide opportunities for families and individuals of all ages to learn and play hockey and other ice sports,” he said.  “For nearly 25 years, our organizations have worked tirelessly to grow the game and we continue to meet increased demand through expanded locations, rinks and programming.”

 In Central Ohio in 1993 there was one two-rink Chiller facility located in Dublin and one youth hockey association comprised of 200 players, along with one varsity high school team, six adult teams made up of 100 players and 1,000 participants in skating and hockey classes. 

 In 2018, there are nine rinks at six Chiller facilities and six youth hockey organizations made up of over 3,000 players, along with 12 varsity, 16 junior varsity and five club programs for high school student-athletes, 209 adult teams with over 3,000 players and over 50,000 participants in skating and hockey classes.  An estimated, 1,000,000 guests visit the OhioHealth Chiller Ice Rinks each year.

 The Chillers Ice Rinks were established in 1993 with the opening of the Dublin location, which was the first of now six facilities including:  Easton, Worthington, North and Springfield, as well as the OhioHealth Ice Haus, the Blue Jackets’ practice rink at Nationwide Arena.

  • Wash the hockey jersey inside-out. Turn the jersey inside-out, then place it into the washer. Doing so will help to preserve the jersey's fabric and make it less faded.


  • Use color-safe detergent. Washing your hockey jersey is safe detergent negates the fading effects of regular detergent. Purchase color-safe detergent at your local department store.


  • Wash the jersey in a gentle washing cycle and in COLD water. Unlike hot water, the cold water will not shrink the jersey. The gentle cycle of the washer allows your jersey to stay intact. In addition, the gentle cycle will keep your jersey looking soft and feeling comfortable.


  • LET IT AIR DRY DO NOT PUT IN DRYER. Just like the hot water, the hot air of a dryer will shrink your hockey jersey and loosen the adhesion of the silkscreen LOGOS, numbers and names. To properly dry your hockey jersey, put it on a hanger and hang it up in a dry place. If you have a clothes line, you can hang your jersey up outside. It should take at least 45 minutes to air dry.  If you have to use the dryer, use only the AIR SETTING and NO FABRIC SOFTENER SHEETS!!


  • Hang up your jersey in a dry place. Once it's done drying, place it in a closet or somewhere that is not filled with moisture. Moisture will make the jersey uncomfortable when you decide to wear it again.

Have a great Hockey Season!!
