Yes, in fact it's in the IIHF rules:
Dimensions of the Rink
Maximum size: 61 m long by 30 m wide.
Minimum size: 56 m long by 26 m wide.
Our rink is 60m long by 26m wide. That should be about NHL-size.
This is the first year we have had and NHL-sized rink, it's our first year in a new building. And it was built with an NHL-size rink in order to get a faster more exciting brand of hockey.
I think in Finland there are some NHL and some Olympic size rinks, so Norway isn't alone in having both.
