NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – As we battle through this heat wave, News 8 decided to take a trip to a cold hockey rink and a visit with the legendary Mark Messier.

News 8 visited the Messier International Hockey Camp, which works with kids of all ages on and off the ice, at the Wonderland of Ice.

The children had the chance to practice games on the ice and then the hall of famer signed anything and everything for the campers.
