New name for Slap Shot rink

The Province - - THE LAST PAGE / SPORTS -

A re­gional bank is pay­ing $720,000 for nam­ing rights to a Penn­syl­va­nia hockey rink made fa­mous in the cult hockey com­edy Slap Shot.

The deal means the build­ing will now be known as 1st Sum­mit Arena @ Cam­bria County War Me­mo­rial.

The arena was home to the de­funct John­stown Jets, a team whose fic­tion­al­ized ex­ploits were the fo­cus of the 1977 Paul New­man film.
