Canadian Tire Centre is 18 miles west of downtown Ottawa. The arena opened in 1996 as the Palladium but was quickly changed to the Corel Centre after the Ottawa software company. The Corel Centre became Scotiabank Place in 2006 and, in turn, was renamed Canadian Tire Centre in 2013. On April 15, 1999, legendary Wayne Gretzky played his last NHL game in Canada, when he and the New York Rangers visited the Corel Centre for a regular-season matchup. The arena boasts great sightlines and the furthest seat is 138 feet from the ice, according to the arena Web site. Visitors will also find a display of hockey artwork hanging from the ceiling. The Senators hosted the 2012 All-Star Game.
Lower Level Club and Lower Level End seating include Rows A-H.
