Corel Centre

The Corel Centre is an arena in Ottawa, Ontario and home to the NHL's Ottawa Senators. It seats 18,500 people for hockey, and is situated in the former city of Kanata, which was merged into Ottawa in 2001.

The Corel Centre, originally called 'The Palladium', opened on January 15, 1996 with a concert by Canadian rocker Bryan Adams. The first NHL game took place two days later, with the Montreal Canadiens defeating the Senators 3-0. A month later, Corel Corporation, an Ottawa software company, signed a 20-year deal to purchase the naming rights for the Palladium.
