Finnish rinks
Blues: 28 x 58 m
HIFK: 28 x 60 m
HPK: 30 x 58 m
Ilves: 28 x 60 m
Jokerit: 28 x 60 m
JYP: 28 x 60 m
Kärpät: 29,5 x 60 m
Lukko: 29 x 59 m
Pelicans: 28 x 58 m
SaiPa: 28,5 x 60 m
Tappara: 28 x 60 m
TPS: 30 x 58 m
Ässät: 28 x 58

Tappara is about 6ft shorter and 6ft wider than the standard NHL rink. The wider rinks do create more space in the zone which is a different game. It is kinda like 4 on 4 hockey in a NHL barn. More space allows for more offensive creativity and less defensive pressure. The difference in sizes must be a headache for players over there. Adjusting to a different size rink so often.
