The World Map of Jerseys Featured on Third String Goalie

Today we wanted to draw some attention to one of the features of this website that you may not have been aware of or spent any time looking at. Buried way, way at the bottom of the homepage is a map of the locations of the arenas of every team we have featured here at Third String Goalie, 183 in all.

Some teams, such as the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs with their longevity, have played in more than one rink, so those teams have more than one pin on the map.

In the case of national teams, some countries have one main arena which always, or nearly always, will host the national team, and we have made every effort to identify those locations. When we were not able to determine a main rink for a country, such as Iceland, or in the case of Canada or the United States, where the national teams play games in multiple locations as a rule, we have placed a marker on the site of the nation's capital.

The locations mapped stretch from Anchorage, Alaska to Tokyo, Japan and north from Reykjavik, Iceland to Miami, Florida and from beginner mighty mite level hockey up to the NHL and Olympics. To date, we have featured 22 different countries so far, with more on the way.

To explore the map, either click on a pin to be taken to a detailed view of it's location, or click on this link to open the map in a large size in a new window. Once there, you will also see a list of team names down the left hand side of the page. Clicking on any of those will also take you to a more detailed view of that team's location.

You can also easily zoom in or out with the sliding scale to the left of the map and even turn on the photo option to see what now sits on the location of arenas long gone.

We hope you take a few minutes to take a look what we may have posted from your area or simply check out the variety of locations we have featured from across North America and the world of hockey.
