About Canada Hockey Place:
Canada Hockey Place is the venue for the 2010 Winter Games ice hockey tournament. Canada Hockey Place is the name given to GM Place, the home of the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks. In 2010, the Olympic Hockey games will be played on North American-size ice surfaces rather than converting to the larger international size.
General Motors Place, sponsored by General Motors Canada, is an indoor arena at 800 Griffiths Way in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Completed in 1995 at a cost of C$160 million in private financing, the arena is home to the Vancouver Canucks of the NHL, and was formerly home to the Vancouver Ravens of the NLL and the Vancouver Grizzlies of the NBA. The arena seats 18,630 for hockey. The arena replaced the Pacific Coliseum as the main venue for events in Vancouver.
