I forgot about the Asheville Civic Center when the SPHL Aces played there

I'm counting the not-so-many WHL arenas I've been in because they're as professional. I'm not counting Moda Center in Portland because it's really not minor league.

Memorial Coliseum, Portland
Key Arena, Seattle (Thunderbirds... and I'm a bad boy)
Mercer Arena, Seattle (now torn down... that was a pit)
ShoWare Center, Kent (Seattle)
Xfinity Arena, Everett
Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena
Toyota Arena, Kennewick (Tri-City Americans)
Tacoma Dome (Sabrecats, not Rockets)
CenturyLink Arena, Boise
Maverik Center, West Valley City (Utah Grizzlies)
Reno Convention Center
Orleans Arena, Las Vegas
Broadmoor World Arena, Colorado Springs (Gold Kings, not Colorado College)
Tingley Coliseum, Albuquerque (heh, Coliseum, chuckle... that really is a barn)
Rabobank Arena, Bakersfield
Save Mart Center, Fresno
Stockton Arena (Thunder and Heat)

Of course, if the WHL arenas count, two others that should:
Town Toyota Center, Wenatchee
Ralph Englestad Arena, Grand Forks (UND of course)

...and if there's a sentimental favorite that you'll never see (or want to), and certainly wasn't pro (but an arena rather than your average rec rink), just for rustic charm, AFTER you experience the Hell of getting there and staying there...

Butte Civic Center. Montana.

This coming winter looks like the year I finally get some Canadian WHL games, unless I find a trip to Rapid City too enticing.

There is nothing quite like the Ralph... and I'm including the 10 current NHL arenas I've visited.

Boise is rather interesting. The Orleans was fun for obvious reasons... though I may have sold my wife on timing a Vegas trip with a Knights game after New Year's.

Would try the other two in the state if the Thunderbolts go to ECHL.
Who are the Thunderbolts?

Saw two games in the LNAH about 10 years ago, one I think was in St Hyacinthe, can't remember the other town.
Also saw a few pre-season games at various rec-rinks.

At one point I was only a few cities away from having seen a game at every ECHL rink, but that was before the CHL teams came in. With several teams leaving a new teams being added I have 16 new cities to hit. Maybe someday when I retire I'll try again.
Holy **** that's a lot. Really reminds you how much this league has geographically changed though. The Southern teams had cool names, usually.

There were a few years when my wife and I attended almost every Royals game, home or away. We missed out on some of the earlier southern teams though. New Orleans Brass, Baton Rouge Kingfish, Columbus Cottonmouths, Mobile Mystics and Macon Whoopee were all in the league in the early days of the Royals, but the Royals didn't face them prior to their folding. Those were the glory days of minor league southern hockey when the ECHL had a southeast and southwest division, and I think Roanoke and Richmond were in the northeast division to make things more even. In 2001 there were 21 teams in the league located south of the Mason-Dixon line.

Too many teams in too many places that were probably pipedreams but I agree it made things interesting. The Southern teams usually had the most creative names. I'll still never understand what went wrong in Roanoke and Richmond they've had multiple goes at hockey and Roanoke has it again.

Its not even the north, its the Midwest. More northern areas would make more sense than the Midwest region for a league like this.

Would make sense? Yes, let's get some teams up in PA, NY, and NJ. That'll help bridge the gap between the league's core and Peoria. Never mind the fact that Evansville does just that.

You should stop where you're behind...Peoria, which has an SPHL team, is northwest of Evansville.
