    I hate that rink. The lights are far too bright and straight into your eyes. I always have to wear a baseball hat to stop myself getting a headache.

    Having finally been to my first game:

    Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza, home to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the AHL.

    Anybody else been to a new rink in the past 10 months?

    EDIT: May 4th went to The Rink at Lehigh Valley (formerly Lehigh Valley Ice Arena), it counts since about 70% of the Lehigh Valley Scholastic Hockey League games are played there, not to mention various inhouse leagues.

    EDIT 2: Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena, home of the AHL Binghamton Senators

    EDIT 3: Steel Ice Center (hosts a Jr. B (or C) team, the Bethlehem Blast)

    EDIT 4: Steve Yzerman Arena (Nepean, Ontario)
    Scotiabank Place (Kanata, Ontario), home of the Ottawa Senators
    Been on the premises of Air Canada Centre (Toronto, Ontario) home of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    EDIT 5: Soverign Center (home ECHL - Reading Royals)

    EDIT 6: MegaIce (Kowloon Bay, Hong Kong) Home of the majority of HK hockey.
    Baqu Arena (Harbin, China) Home of the Harbin Ice Hockey Team?
    Harbin Institute of Physical Education Ice Hockey Arena (also known as the Harbin Sport College Arena). Also in Harbin, China. Occassional home of China Dragon.

    EDIT 7: LeSports Center (Beijing, China). Frequent home of KHL side Kunlun Red Star.

    Lusches is thinking about this. :-)

    Perhaps with a little help by.... tux96? ;-)

    It's a lot of work: Translating all the templates and modifying many php-scripts. I think we will find some time over the hockey-less summer....

    My list is not overly impressive but I've been to:

    Air Canada Centre - Toronto Maple Leafs
    Northlands Coliseum/Rexall Place - Edmonton Oilers
    Pengrowth Saddledome - Calgary Flames

    Brandt Centre - Regina Pats (WHL)
    Credit Union Centre/Saskatchewan Place - Saskatoon Blades (WHL)
    Moose Jaw Civic Centre - Moose Jaw Warriors (WHL)

    I've also been in Copps Coliseum, home of the AHL's Hamilton Bulldogs, but it was to see a Weezer concert, not a Bulldogs game. I hope to at least hit a couple other arenas this winter. Probably, the Art Hauser Centre (Prince Albert Raiders (WHL)) and Quicken Loans Arena (Lake Erie Monsters (AHL)). But hopefully I'll hit another NHL rink as well, but we'll see.

    Edit: Kinda sad to see my list hasn't grown very much in 10 years. To add to this list I have been to:
    Staples Center - Los Angeles Kings

    Lloydminster Centennial Civic Centre - Lloydminster Bobcats (AJHL)
    Rutherford Arena - University of Saskatchewan Huskies (USport)

    I have also now been inside the Bell Centre, home of the Montreal Canadiens and the MTS Centre, home of the Winnipeg Jets. I have seen an Arena Football game at the Amway Center, home of the ECHL's Orlando Solar Bears and I saw a MLB game at Tropicana Field (was known as the Thunderdome), the former home of the Tampa Bay Lightning. I was also inside the Montreal Forum, however it is partly a movie theatre and a small shopping centre now, but does still retain a block of seats and the rink is painted on the floor.

    Updated my list with Arena Riga, now up to 62 rinks... :-)

    Noticed that I have two lists in here. I'm now only updating the first one, so the mods can delete the 2nd if they so wish...

    I took my son to watch the Winnipeg Jets play the Habs at the Montreal Forum in 1996 - the last year of the Forum and the last year of the Jets. He was one year and two days old at the time. He'll have a great claim to fame when he's 90, I guess. What bugged me about the experience is I had to buy a standing room ticket for me and him and hold him in my arms while he slept through two periods and I had to watch Khabibulin in sieve mode.

    I visited the brand new Malmö Arena for the first hockey game there last night... Unfortunately, Leksand lost, but the arena was filled with 13,247 spectators. I was told it was sold out but there were empty seats here and there. Capacity is set at 13,700 for hockey games.

    I took some pictures I can share with you, they're attached to this reply.

    That's a bit of an upgrade from the old Isstadion!
