The Seattle Ice Arena was a 4,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Seattle, Washington.

The Arena was home to the Seattle Metropolitans Pacific Coast Hockey Association franchise from 1915 to 1924. It was built in 1915 at the cost of $100,000.[1] It was located across from what is now the Olympic Hotel on University Street in downtown Seattle. On March 26, 1917, the Metropolitans defeated the Montreal Canadiens at the arena, becoming the first American team to win the Stanley Cup. The arena was briefly a roller rink and remodeled into a parking garage shortly after the 1924-25 season and torn down in 1963 to make way for the IBM Building.[1]
