          These are all D-1 or professional venues, but some of them I've only seen women's or D-3 games at.

          Meehan Auditorium, Bright Hockey Center (before and after the renovation), Schneider Arena, Agganis Arena, Kelley Rink (women's), Matthews Arena (D-3), Walter Brown Arena (D-3), Dunkin' Donuts Center, DCU Center, TD Garden, Boardwalk Hall (Atlantic City), Compton Family Ice Arena.

          I need to venture more outside of the Boston-Providence area! The highest on my bucket list at the moment are Lynah, Ingalls, Hobey Baker and Alfond. I'm a big fan of older, historic arenas. With that said, I'd also love to see QU's arena and Lake Whittemore.

            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, 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 54 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.

            Sean
            Do D2/3 games count?

              Sean, great idea. I'll tackle my list over a period of time as I don't want to keep adding to it. I bet you have another to add to the list since you had Tully Forum in it and that would be Skate3 in Tyngsboro where Lowell played games in the MacTavish era.

                    Got a lot of catching up to do.

                    Matthews Arena
                    Agganis Arena
                    Conte Forum
                    Tsongas Arena
                    Tate Rink (Army)
                    TD Bank Sports Center (QU)
                    Fenway Park
                    TD Garden
                    Walter Brown Arena

                    By the end of this season my list will be doubled, since I'll have means of travel for NU games. I'll hit all of Hockey East minus Maine, and also add Harvard/SLU/Minnesota/Ireland all for sure. Gonna be nice to crack double digits!
