Arena Statuary

NHL Statues, Statuettes, and Sculptures – Hockey Arena Statues

This page is dedicated to the player, coach, administration, miscellaneous, and mascot(!) statues found outside of current and past NHL arenas.

Note: these are hockey related statues, and not every reference to sports figures to appear outside of the arena.

This list is under constant construction.  If you see an inaccuracy or anything missing, contact me via email or Twitter.

(s/t to The Royal Half and Jesse Cohen from All the Kings Men Podcast).
