Temperature of the ice
The temperature of the ice on a rink is dependent on the type of ice required for a particular sport - whether it needs to be damp ice, dry ice or hard ice. Ice Hockey needs hard ice but other activities require different temperatures and types of ice. See the table below :
i. General Skating : damp ice, -2° and -3° centigrade
ii. Artistic Skating : medium dry ice, -3° and -4° centigrade
iii. Ice Hockey : hard ice, -4° and -6° centigrade
iv. Curling : hard ice, -8° and -10° centigrade
Temperature of a puck
Pucks have to be kept in a frozen condition before a game. The host team is responsible for supplying sufficient pucks for a game. Most teams freeze 60 pucks before a game at around 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Then before each period, 20 of those pucks are brought to the rink, where they're kept chilled in buckets of ice until required.
