rooftop rink torontoThe mystery behind the new rooftop hockey rink in Toronto has been resolved. Located on top of a 32-story building at 120 Adelaide St. West, the rink is indeed part of Molson Canadian's #AnythingForHockey campaign, as many had suspected.

The brewing company confirmed its involvement earlier this week and released this 30-second video, which shows a time lapse of how the rink was constructed.

Later this winter, four people who entered the campaign will be invited to skate on the rink. For now, it's off limits to the public but Molson's Director of Marketing Chris Blackburn hinted that may change.

"Although we built the rooftop rink exclusively for our contest winners, we know there are many more fans out there who would love to skate on it," Blackburn said in a press release.

"We have certainly been listening to every comment and hope to share some exciting news soon."
