Check out our upgraded History Of The Rink page. Here is a look at some of the new and updated things you will find.
One of many ways we are celebrating our tenth anniversary is with the return of NCAA center ice designs.
It is hard to believe The Faceoff is 10 years old. When I started this site, it was mostly just to show off a few of my graphics that I had created. I never believed it would turn into what it is today.
Just 4 hours ago, we uploaded the final 2021 NHL season center ice graphic, or so we thought. The Islanders have already changed up their ice a bit, just a couple weeks into the season
We are the only center ice archive on the web, and we strive for accuracy. Let's take a look at some improvements we have been working on the last month or two.
Our suspicions following the "Pepsi" branding omission in NHL 21 have now been confirmed. The home arena of the Colorado Avalanche has been renamed Bell Arena.
There has been no news on the naming rights front for the Avalanche since last September when the team renewed their naming rights agreement for a one year extension. That extension is now up, and NHL 21 may have just given us a clue suggesting that Pepsi will not renew the naming rights to the home of the Avs.
As we mentioned yesterday, Nassau Coliseum is in NHL 21, but we also noticed a strange scoreboard. Unfortunately we could only catch a small portion of it from the video we received. Today we have footage of the entire scoreboard, and it has left us with more questions than answers. Where did this board come from? Is it real?
With the news that the New York Islanders will play all of their home games at Nassau Coliseum for the 2021 season, many wondered if EA Sports NHL 21 would replace Barclays Center with the old barn. Today, via an early access look at NHL 21, we discovered that the Coliseum is indeed in the game. Our apologized to Islanders fans but these screenshots come from a Stanley Cup celebration which will certainly not make your day.
After a presentation from the NHL, we now have an idea of what the return to play will look like in Edmonton and Toronto. With no home-team advantage, the NHL will use some new and innovated methods to create a unique feel for each game.
