 What's the Arena Like?

Yet to Visit

Prince George is both the northernmost and most isolated city in the entire CHL, with the team's closest road trip (Kamloops) being a mere five hours and thirty minutes away. What this means for an Ontario-based website is that doing the roadie to Prince George, more than Baie-Comeau or Cape Breton or Sault Ste. Marie, makes you hardcore. It's been on my radar for years, and in fact I was supposed to do it in the 2020-21 season before the global pandemic changed everything. Someday I'll get up to PG, probably the least-visited city by road fans in the entire CHL.

 Future Developments
There are no plans to renovate or replace CN Centre.

 Franchise History
The Victoria Cougars name dates back a century, with a team by that name winning the Stanley Cup in 1925. The most recent iteration of the Victoria Cougars were a junior hockey team, playing in the WHL at Victoria Memorial Arena from 1971 to 1994. High travel costs and falling attendance moved the team to Prince George that year, and the team played at the Prince George Coliseum for the 1994-95 season while the new Multiplex was under construction.
