1. David S. Ingalls Rink

Year Opened: 1958

Location: Yale University - New Haven, CT.

Better known as the “Yale Whale”, the Eero Saarinen designed building is one of the most distinctive rinks in college hockey. Ingalls Rink earns the whale moniker thanks to it’s humpbacked-style timber roof that’s supported by a cable net and 30 foot reinforced concrete arch that resembles a whale’s backbone. The rink was renovated in the late ‘90s to add more community services but the classic design and style remained intact.
