Everett Silvertips                                                                             
USRT VISIT: January, 2010
Washington Stealth (NLL)

Everett is a suburban bedroom community located about 20
miles north of Seattle, Washington, and the Comcast Arena,
opened in 2003, is one of the anchors of the clean and
sparkling downtown neighborhood. The arena roof is supported
by cable spires which give the building the look and feel of a
suspension bridge. The arena seats about 8300 for hockey or
indoor lacrosse, and is attached to an adjacent conference
Brandt Centre
Regina Pats                                                                             
USRT VISIT: January, 2012

Regina is kind of a big city and a small prairie town all rolled into
one, and the Brandt Centre, a smallish 70s era hockey rink is
attached to a larger convention and exhibition center, and about
a mile away from their football stadium housing their CFL
Saskatchewan Roughriders. Great championship banner and
retired number presentation here, and the signature in the
seating bowl is a hot tub located right next to the glass and
playing surface.
Keystone Centre
Brandon Wheat Kings                                                               
USRT VISIT: January, 2012

About a 100 miles west of Winnipeg, Brandon is just about as
small town as small towns get. The arena is attached to the
larger Keystone Centre, which has venues for agricultural
shows,  curling, concerts and other entertainment events.  
Otherwise the arena sits amidst a suburban style streetscape,
with massive parking lots surrounding  the facility and shopping
plazas galore across the street. Check out the gourmet coffee,
latte and espresso offerings, the signature concession stand in
the concourse.
Toyota Center
Kennewick, Washington
Tri City Americans                                                           
USRT VISIT: March, 2016

The arena is nestled in behind a shopping district, a plethora of
hotels and an office park. But don't let the non descript location
fool you. This is a building that knows its hockey, rocking to the
beat, singing and chanting, and making noise throughout. The
food selection here is really great as well.
Enmax Center
Lethdridge, Alberta
Lethbridge Hurricanes
USRT VISIT: January, 2017

In a city most noted for the High Level Trussel Bridge, the
longest such structure in the world, the Enmax Center is the
local arena which was originally built to host the 1975 Canada
Rogers Place
Edmonton, Alberta
Edmonton Oil Kings
USRT VISIT: January, 2017

The gleaming and dazzling Rogers Place is the new home for
the NHL Oilers, but also is shared by the junior Oil Kings.
Typically the upper deck is cordoned off as the team doesn't rise
to the support of the major league team, but the Oil Kings get to
play in what is arguably the most dazzling building in all of junior
Westerner Park Centrium
Red Deer, Alberta
Red Deer Rebels
USRT VISIT: January, 2017

With two decks, club seating and suites there is a bit of a major
league feel in what is otherwise a 7000+ seat intimate arena
that was once the host to the World Juniors and also the primary
venue for the 2016 Memorial Cup.
Innovative Credit Union I-Plex
Swift Current, Saskatchewan
Swift Current Broncos
USRT VISIT: January, 2017

The building has more of a feel of the local community rink, with
but one end zone lobby and main team store and concession
stand, a narrow aisle ringing the top of the seating bowl, and a
low hanging roof and scoreboard that often gets hit by pucks
during live action. Venue is home to the Saskatchewan Hockey
Hall of Fame.
SaskTel Centre
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
Saskatoon Blades
USRT VISIT: January, 2017

Back in the 1980s, Saskatoon almost became an NHL city when
a local group bought the St. Louis Blues with plans to relocate
the franchise. That feel through, but a new state of the art arena
was built on the north side of town near the airport. Basic two
deck/one concourse venue surrounded by oceans of parking in
the middle of an industrial park.
Prospera Centre
Chilliwack, British Columbia
Chilliwack Bruins                                                                                 
USRT VISIT: January, 2010

The best way to describe this facility in one word is "mature".
Even though it opened as recently as 2004, the open steel
girders painted bright yellow, the asymmetrical roof design and
old school exhibits make this arena feel like it's been around for
a long time, yet modern amenities, video scoreboard and wide
concourses offer all the features of a new arena. Chilliwack is
one of the new kids on the block, having played its first game
here in 2006.
