Before the Gardens, there was George Bell

Anyone who has been to a Ryerson hockey game in recent years knows — the Mattamy Athletic Centre (MAC) is a high quality arena. Not only do the Rams get to play under the historic dome of the Maple Leaf Gardens, but the upgraded facilities are borderline professional.

But the MAC is still relatively new, only opening in September 2012. Before that, the Rams played at George Bell Arena, a tiny rink so far down St. Clair West that the streetcar turns around before reaching it.

Most current Ryerson players never got to experience the daily trek out to George Bell and the remaining ones who did are graduating this year. So, do any of them miss it?
