Officials at Labatt Blue beer announced today a new plan for the sixth annual Labatt Blue Buffalo Pond Hockey Tournament.

Construction began on nine man-made ice rinks on the surface of Erie Basin Marina. Crews couldn't get on the ice to take measurements because of storm damage cause by high winds and unseasonably warm temperatures.

With the tournament only eight days away, it is very unlikely the Lake will form 12 inches of ice needed for the tournament to take place on the lake.

The process of constructing the ice rinks will take approximately one week to complete.
