  • Places I've Seen a College Hockey Game

    Since it's summer, and I'm seeing several "Places I've Seen a College Hockey Game" signatures, I though I would start a thread where everyone can post where they've seen a college hockey game. I'll start:

    Agganis Arena, Alfond Arena (pre and post 1992 renovation), Appleton Arena, Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim, Boston Garden, Bradley Center, Bright-Landry Hockey Center (& Bright Hockey Center), Cheel Arena, Conte Forum, Dayton Arena, DCU Center (& Centrum Centre & Worcester Centrum), Freitas Ice Forum, Gutterson Fieldhouse (pre and post 1990 renovation), Hobey Baker Memorial Rink, Houston Field House, HSBC Arena, Hyannis Youth and Community Center, Ingalls Rink, Joe Louis Arena, Lawler Arena (pre and post 2010 renovation), Lynah Rink, Madison Square Garden, Matthews Arena (pre and post 1990 renovation and post 2009 renovation), McHugh Forum, Meehan Auditorium, Mullins Center, Nutter Center, Olympic Center, Onondaga War Memorial, Pepsi Arena (& Knickerbocker Arena), Pepsi Center, Providence Civic Center, Ridder Arena, Riverfront Coliseum, Schneider Arena (pre and post 2013 renovations), Schottenstein Center, Scottrade Center, Snively Arena, St. Paul Civic Center, Starr Rink, Tampa Bay Times Forum, Tate Rink, TD Bank Sports Center, TD Garden (& FleetCenter), Thompson Arena, Tsongas Center (& Tsongas Arena), Tullio Arena, Tully Forum, Verizon Center, Verizon Wireless Arena, Walker Arena, Walter Brown Arena, Wells Fargo Center, Whittemore Center, Xcel Energy Center

    That's 55 different rinks over 30 seasons. I tried to include all the names a rink had when I saw a game their, as well as before and after major renovation, but I may have missed a few. I expect some to have been to more rinks, maybe many more, as I've not been to any college rinks beyond New Jersey and New York besides Schottenstein Center (2005 Men's FF) and Ridder Arena (2013 Women's FF). You'll also never see me at an outdoor college hockey game, or one played in a football stadium.

    Agganis Arena, Alfond Arena, Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim, Bradley Center, Boston Garden, Bright-Landry Hockey Center, Consol Energy Center, Conte Forum, DCU Center (& Worcester Centrum), Fenway Park, Ford Field, Houston Field House, HSBC Arena, Lawler Arena (pre and post 2010 renovation), Madison Square Garden, Matthews Arena (1990 renovation and post 2009 renovation), Mullins Center, Pepsi Arena (& Knickerbocker Arena), Providence Civic Center, Riverfront Coliseum, Schneider Arena (pre 2013 renovations), Schottenstein Center, Scottrade Center, St. Paul Civic Center, Tampa Bay Times Forum, TD Garden (& FleetCenter), Tsongas Center (& Tsongas Arena), Tully Forum, Verizon Center, Verizon Wireless Arena, Walter Brown Arena, Wells Fargo Center, Xcel Energy Center

    Mine was much easier to do since I copied and edited yours Sean!

    -Added Boston Garden. Had to be an oversight on Sean's list!

    -Added Fenway Park (only the 1st time when it was something special)

    -Deleted the ones I haven't gone to and did a FF scan (added Consol Center & Ford Field)

    -I don't go to nearly the number of away games that I used to. I made all the BU home games this year - and neutral site (Beanpot/HEA/FF) games, but zero away games.

      All the places I've seen a college hockey game are listed in my signature. All arenas listed are places I've seen LSSU play at and the year listed is the first time I've visited that arena.

        Yours is bigger than mine, but what the puck, I'll play. It's not the size of the wave, but the motion of the ocean that counts...
        Broadmoor World Arena, Magness Arena, Cadet Ice Arena, and Century Link Center.
        My favorite place to watch a game is Magness. Although, as a rival fan the bathrooms can be a little dangerous when I need to go "Pio" in between periods...

              Re: Places I've Seen a College Hockey Game

              Going strictly from memory:

              East (15): Lynah, Hamilton, Cheel, Appleton, Gutterson, Thompson, Bright, Meehan, Achilles, Houston, TD Bank (QU), Times-Union (Albany), Lake Placid 1980 rink, Germain Arena (Florida Classic), Onondoga War Memorial

              West (3): Lawson, Munn, Mariucci

              Have also been in Hobey Baker and Yost, but did not see games there.

              Not too shabby, considering that I only lived within the college hockey footprint for 11 years, including my 4.5 in school.
              If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

                Yes, I overlooked Boston Garden. It's been 20 years and I guess I saw so many games there they just blended into the games I've seen at TD Garden. I also overlooked the Onondaga War Memorial. I attended the 1988 SIT there. Very interesting rink. I enjoyed walking through the War Memorial between games.

                I had my tickets for the FF at Consol Ceneter, but I was unable to attend. I really would have liked that FF.

                I used to go to all BU away games east of the Great Lakes, but with my daughter playing youth hockey and the women's games I'm lucky to get to one away game a season now. I still miss the trips to Maine, Vermont and Cornell (unlikely to happen again).

                  Re: Places I've Seen a College Hockey Game

                  I've only been attending college hockey games on the regular since 2009, but here's mine:

                  Hockey East: Agganis Arena, Alfond Arena, Compton Family Ice Arena, Conte Forum, Gutterson Fieldhouse, Matthews Arena, Mullins Center, Schneider Arena, Tsongas Center, Whittemore Center

                  ECAC: Thompson Arena

                  NCHC: Ralph Engelstad Arena

                  Big 10: Pegula Ice Arena

                  Random Neutral Sites: Cross Insurance Arena (Cumberland County Civic Center), Dunkin' Donuts Center, Fenway Park, T.D. Garden, Webster Bank Arena, Wells Fargo Center

                  D3: University of Southern Maine

                  I'm still super bitter I never made it to Merrimack while I was an undergrad. I'm currently exploiting my friends in grad schools now to visit other arenas around the country--I'm hoping to get Michigan/Michigan State this year and possibly Princeton, RPI, Union, and Cornell. I've seen Providence play at all of the above arenas except for Pegula (that was BC/Penn State) and Wells Fargo Center (the 2014 Frozen Four, which I went to on a complete whim after I convinced a coworker it'd be fun to skip half a day of work and just go).
                  Places I've Seen a College Hockey Game: Agganis Arena, Alfond Arena, Compton Family Ice Arena, Conte Forum, Cross Insurance Arena (Cumberland County Civic Center), Dunkin' Donuts Center, Gutterson Fieldhouse, Fenway Park, Matthews Arena, Mullins Center, Pegula Ice Arena, Ralph Engelstad Arena, Schneider Arena, T.D. Garden, Tsongas Center, Thompson Arena, University of Southern Maine, Webster Bank Arena, Wells Fargo Center, Whittemore Center

                      I'm sure I'll have to add to this, but quickly off the top of my head:

                      Agganis Arena
                      Walter Brown Arena
                      Conte Forum

                      Worcester Centeum
                      Pepsi Center (Albany... Not sure what it's called now)
                      Verizon (Manchester)

                      I'm sure I've forgotton a couple.

                          MacInnes (best in the new WCHA, *bows*, thanks)
                          Taffy (2nd favorite in the nWCHA thus far)
                          Yost (it's alright - the tall end zone seats kind of suck, experience-wise)
                          Berry (worst sightlines - get a real hockey team, NMU)
                          Brooks NHC (it's loud and the fans are a mixed bag, but the sight lines are just OK)
                          Mariucci (gorgeous bowl with very good sight lines, but most of the fans are accounted-for Goofs
                          JLA: Great Lakes Invitational Tournament - Save-a-Lot Spartys, Walmart Wolverines, and various other sponsors that keep Tech's beloved holiday tournament alive.

                          Next Year: Munn or Ewigleben, which I will singlehandedly out-cheer, according to everyone.

                            This was the a fun little exercise. I guess I'm technically an "old timer", as I was a Maine Fan from afar since the program started in Division II back in 1977, however, I've only been attending games on a regular basis since 2003:

                            Hockey East: Alfond Arena, Cross Insurance Arena (pka Cumberland County Civic Center), Conte Forum, Whittemore Center, Agganis Arena, Walter Brown Arena, Lawler Arena, Tsongas Center/Arena, Chelmsford Forum (pka Tully Forum), Schneider Arena, Matthews Arena, Gutterson Fieldhouse, Mullins Center, Compton Family Ice Arena, and XL Center.

                            WCHA: Sullivan Arena

                            ECAC: Achilles Rink, Appleton Arena

                            NCHC: Ralph Engelstad Arena, Magness Arena

                            Big Ten: Munn Ice Arena

                            Frozen Fenway: Fenway Park

                            Hockey East: Boston Garden

                            Florida College Hockey Classic: Germain Arena

                            Ice Breaker Tournament: Sprint Center

                            NCAA Regionals: Verizon Wireless Arena, DCU Center, Webster Bank Arena, Blue Cross Arena, Pepsi Arena

                            Frozen Fours: Fleetcenter/TD Bank Garden, Value City Arena, Bradley Center, Scottrade Center, Pepsi Center, Verizon Center, Ford Field, Xcel Energy Center, Wells Fargo Center

                            I hope to add a couple more this year.
