New Quebec NHL Colisee Making Progress

Since 1972, in the WHA (World Hockey Association), Quebecois have enjoyed having a professional hockey team with the Quebec Nordiques. In the 1979-1980 hockey season, as the WHA and NHL merged, the Quebec Nordiques expanded and became an official team in the National Hockey League, and have had their fair share of talented hall of fame players including Michel Goulet, Guy Lafleur, and Joe Sakic.

All of this ended in 1995 when the Nordique franchise and team folded due to the growing pressures of players high paying salaries and the weakening of the Canadian Dollar at that time.

There are no guarantee's a new version of the NHL Nordiques will return to Quebec City anytime soon, however if, when and if luck finds its way, it does happen - Quebec City will have a flashy new hockey arena raring to go.

Relocation and expansions are ongoing discussions in the NHL regarding Quebec City, Seattle, and Las Vegas among several other cities being at the forefront as possible destinations the NHL would consider.

With construction having started this past September 2014 - the Construction nouveau Colisee has just released some new photographs and diagrams detailing the progress of the new Quebec City Sports arena.

If the phrase "build it and they will come" holds true, perhaps one day soon Quebecois will have a fresh version of the Nordiques back home.
