Fresh ice.

Fresh, clean ice, without skate marks or snot trails or the tears of players at season’s end. Because this is the beginning, you see, and arenas around the NHL are laying down the frozen water and the paint in preparation for the preseason.

Watch this awesome time-lapse of the Minnesota Wild’s home ice being created at Xcel Energy Center*, and know that the season’s nearly here.

Nothing makes a hockey fan crave the start of the season more than seeing that first fresh Toyota advertisement in the neutral zone, right?

* We originally found this video on the Star Tribune web site, which didn’t allow for it to be embedded. We had to opt for the Wild’s version, to the chagrin of the Trib’s advertisers, we imagine.
