The Bright-Landry Hockey Center
Bright-Landry Hockey Center
is a 3,095-seat ice-hockey arena in Boston, Massachusetts, United States. It is home to the Harvard University Crimson men's and women's ice hockey teams. It is named for Alec Bright '19, a former hockey player.

Inside Bright Center

In 1956, the Donald C. Watson Rink was opened just north of Harvard Stadium at Soldiers Field, the area in the Allston neighborhood of Boston
used by Harvard athletics, just across the Charles River from campus. The rink held approximately 2,000 people, but did not have many modern amenities. When plans were made to upgrade facilities, the $5-million cost became prohibitive, and the decision was made to renovate Watson Rink. In 1978, following the hockey season, the walls were removed and the roof was extended before the new arena itself was installed. After a season without a full-time home, the "new" arena opened on November 19, 1979, with an exhibition between Harvard and the 1980 USA Olympic hockey team. In November 2006, Bright Arena
was home to the 2006 Friendship Cup, the Cup's debut year. Team USA Alumni, Team Canada Alumni, Team Gazprom and the Boston
Bruins Alumni team all participated in the event. The Bruins defeated Team USA, while Gazprom defeated Team Canada. The arena was also home to the Boston Pride
Boston Pride
of the National Women's Hockey League for the 2015–16 NWHL season
2015–16 NWHL season
in which the Pride won the Isobel Cup Championship. The Bright-Landry Center, when used for ice hockey, shares a design quirk with the Bruins' still-standing "original" home rink, today's Northeastern University-located Matthews Arena
- the opposing team's benches at the Bright-Landry Center exist on opposing sides of the rink, just as they also did in the 20th century Boston
Garden (1928-1995) for ice hockey games.
