I think a couple of years ago, the IIHF decided that every international tournament in North America (USA/Canada) could go on NHL-sized rinks, while every tournament elsewhere could happen on olympic sized rinks. This includes the Olympics, World Champs, JWC etc.

Its up to the host to decide, and the cost of changing allready astablished rinks for international tournaments was considered too high.
