Is the Icecat a dog?

It's usually a time for stretching and banter, but the players in a men's shinny league at a downtown arena broke from their pregame routine last Tuesday evening to admire an unfamiliar contraption flooding the ice.

Resembling a bulked-up bobsled, the brand-new Icecat resurfacer purred quietly as it tooled around Bill Bolton Arena in Seaton Village. Unlike conventional resurfacers - the best-known of which are made by Zamboni, the iconic California company - the Finnish-made Icecat runs on batteries instead of propane, and thus gives off no exhaust.
