List of National Hockey League arenas

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Rogers Place, the newest arena in the National Hockey League, is home to the Edmonton Oilers.

The following is a list of National Hockey League (NHL) arenas. This list includes past, present, and future arenas.

Madison Square Garden and Joe Louis Arena are the only current arenas not to be named after corporate sponsors. That number will shrink to one with the opening of Little Caesars Arena, which will replace Joe Louis Arena.
