The NHL said it likes to leave a “legacy” gift behind to the hosts of its outdoor games, and donated a refurbished zamboni for the new Tahoe South Event Center that is being constructed next to Montbleu Casino Resort & Spa at Stateline.

The NHL hosted a pair of outdoor games Feb. 20-21 at Edgewood Tahoe Resort.

“We like to leave behind a legacy gift that will last long after we’re gone,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said.

The Zamboni spent four days on a truck while in transit from Toronto. It will be stored in the Montbleu parking garage.
