I didn't see the exact content put up before (hope I am not redoing others stuff) but since I live in the Fort Wayne area I thought I would post this. The Coliseum in Fort Wayne is a great place to watch hockey, it is home to the Fort Wayne Komets, the second oldest minor league team in America and has a pretty good following. It holds 10,500 and has a pretty high average game attendance. http://www.komets.com/.
They are the back to back winners of the IHL and have a decent season going this year as well.
For those of you that are traveling to Michigans game here, you might want to look into the holiday inn that is right across the street from the Coliseum.
It is so close you will not need to worry about having a designated driver. There are a few other places to stay that are not too far away if it is full, I will post others if people want.
