The Bill Gray’s Iceplex in Brighton is getting an upgrade.

The $2.2 million expansion will feature additional retail and locker room space, as well as a Lattimore physical therapy and sports rehabilitation center and a fitness center.

General Manager of the Iceplex Chris Woodworth says the additions will help them continue to host the over 30 major ice hockey tournaments they bring to the area each year.

"Through the improvements and through the amenities and the service we provide, we've been able to establish relationships with some large tournaments."

The fitness center will be open to the public as well as those visiting the area for games.

The Iceplex is one of the largest venues in the Finger Lakes based on attendance, attracting 1.6 million spectators annually.

Empire State Development is assisting the project through a $700,000 grant awarded by the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council.
