The Herb Brooks Arena, one of three ice surfaces at the Olympic Center, is a 7,700-seat multi-purpose arena in Lake Placid, New York. This surface, along with the USA Rink, was built for the 1980 Winter Olympics.
Herb Brooks Arena hosted various events during the 1980 Winter Olympics, most famously the ice hockey tournament that saw the United States's 4–3 victory over the Soviet Union, the game commonly referred to as the Miracle on Ice. In 2005, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the American victory, the arena was named after the late Herb Brooks, who coached the United States team during the 1980 Olympics.
Other events the arena hosted during the 1980 games include figure skating events and the closing ceremony.
The arena has been used several times for college hockey championships in the United States. It hosted the 1984 and 1988 men's NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Championship, commonly referred to as the Frozen Four. The arena has hosted the NCAA Women's Ice Hockey Championship as well, in 2007. From 1993 to 2002, the arena annually hosted the ECAC Hockey League's championships every March. The ECAC announced in July 2012 that the league will crown its champion in Herb Brooks Arena for the 2013–14, 2014–15, and 2015–16 seasons.(Wikipedia)
