      I went to two summers of hockey camp at Dayton Arena, but I never saw a college hockey game there. I've seen high school games/actually played at just about every Maine rink you've listed, though.

        Well, mine is embarrassingly small.

        Joe Louis Arena - GLI 4x, Big Ten Tourney
        Munn - Somewhere around 250 games
        Spartan Stadium - Cold War
        Van Andel - Regionals once upon a time

        Might be able to hit up Northeastern this year.

          For anyone feeling embarrassed by their short list, here's mine to make you feel better;

          Eweigleben Arena
          BGSU Ice Arena
          Schottenhein Center

          I'm hoping to double that this year with trips to Lawson Arena, Taffy Able Arena, and Goggin Ice Arena. Maybe more if bgbill has an extra plane ticket to Alaska just lying around somewhere. ;-)

            A short list means you actually have a life beyond college hockey. A long list, not so much.

              Another short list.

              RPI (Houston) Field House
              Boston Arena (RPI-BU ECAC playoff game, 1969)
              Madison Square Garden (ECAC Holiday Hockey Festival, December 1969)
              Tampa Bay Times Forum (Lightning College Hockey Classic, December 2007)
              Verizon Center (2009 FF)

              I have yet to see RPI win a game away from the HFH.

                  Re: Places I've Seen a College Hockey Game

                  Some great lists here!

                  I started this list (link below) a few years ago and have kept it updated. I've covered college hockey games as either a writer or broadcaster in 71 different venues. I didn't include venues I visited as a spectator only, which are Walker (former Clarkson) the old Mariucci (former Minnesota), World Arena (Colorado College), Value City (2005 Frozen Four), Sabreland (University of Buffalo when it was varsity), and Smith Rec Center (St. Bonaventure when it was varsity). That would bring the total to 77.

                  The list is here.

                      Re: Places I've Seen a College Hockey Game

                      I started following college hockey in '99/'00. I've been to 48 different venues for a game thus far, but have cut way back over the last few years. I completed the quest to see every D1 team play in 2014...but probably won't attempt going to every D1 arena. Might get back to seeing a few more when my son is a bit older....

                            I grew up in Brunswick, so Dayton was a second home for me. If I wasn't playing, I was watching some game there... When Dayton was rockin' it was a tremendous atmposphere... when Bowdoin would play Colby, it was as good as it gets... Bowdoin students throwing grilled cheese sandwiches or tennis balls in the direction of the Colby net on Bowdoin's first goal of the game... it was great...

                            new arena is a palace and sterile by comparison... still gets loud, but nothing like the Dayton....
