Rogers Arena is home to the Vancouver Canucks of the NHL, and was known as Canada Hockey Place during the 2010 Winter Olympics, in which it hosted many of the games including the gold medal game. It is also the former home of the NBA's Vancouver Grizzlies and the NLL's Vancouver Ravens. A statue of Rick Hansen, a Paralympic athlete who pushed his wheelchair around the world in a spinal cord injury fundraiser, is outside the arena.
