If you are taking in a Griffins game anytime soon, you will once again be enjoying the "Best Minor League Hockey Experience" in the country as voted by Stadium Journey.com. The sport stadium ranking review website named Van Andel Arena, for the second straight year, the best minor league Hockey venue in the US!

The website StadiumJourney.com lists Van Andel number 1 in it's January 2013 edition as the best of 2012. Other minor league arena's include

No. 2: J. Benson Cartage Centre, Ottawa 67’s
No. 3: CenturyLink Arena, Idaho Steelheads
No. 4: U.S. Bank Arena, Cincinnati Cyclones
No. 5: Halifax Metro Centre, Halifax Mooseheads

Van Andel's appeal? "The downtown location, with its numerous eateries and pubs and breweries is certainly part of the draw, but the team itself helps to draw West Michigander hockey fans."

Way to go Griffs and Van Andel! Make sure you take in a game soon and enjoy what we have known for years..It all starts here!
