From university intramurals, to figure skating, to junior hockey, to the Lincoln Stars, everyone is fighting for ice time on Lincoln's only indoor rink, The Ice Box.
"I still have confidence [the ice center] will show up. One way or the other, it'll make Lincoln," Hiller said.
Clare says much of the community has been focused on the new Pinnacle Bank Arena and the East Stadium expansion, slowing plans for the new ice center.
"It's all part of the process, the process will be played out and there will be a hockey facility. That facility will be the John Breslow Ice Center," Clare said.
The center was originally slated to be built to the south of the arena, but that is no longer the case. Hiller says the city is donating land for the project to be built to the northwest of the arena, near Haymarket Park.
Before the center can break ground, Clare says the board of regents needs to vote on the project.
As of Wednesday, he says he doesn't know when that'll happen.
But, Hiller says he's heard rumors the new proposal could go in front of the board this December.
