Most US hockey facilities are privately owned, serving a niche market. So they concentrate on hockey, figure skating, public skating year round.
Well into the 1970s, indoor rinks in Canada were owned and operated by municipalities that in the off season served as multi-purpose community centers.
The private hockey facilities in Canada started making inroads in the 1980s, then gradually expanded in the nineties, making inroads in the minor urban centers in the last ten years.
