MIDDLETON (WKOW) -- Nearly ten months following the tragic death of Madison hockey icon Bob Suter, the rink he helped open was named in his honor. Capitol Ice Arena in Middleton will now be known as "Bob Suter's Capitol Ice Arena." Dozens of family members and friends gathered outside the arena on Saturday evening as the new sign honoring Suter's was unveiled. Bob's son, Ryan Suter, was in attendance and shed some light on what the honor meant to the Suter family.

"It's amazing. He did so much for this rink. This rink wouldn't be here if it weren't for him and all the work he put in. He always wanted to have a rink and somewhere for all the kids to play," Suter said.

"To know that we're here he would be very honored and he'd feel, I'm sure he'd have a little tear in his eye."
