 What's the Arena Like?

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has made for several strange arenas in the QMJHL, and the Complexe Branchaud-Brière in Gatineau, a large community complex like every other in Canada built in the past twenty years, was unexpectedly drafted into service as a hub arena in Gatineau in February and March of 2021. This wasn't specifically the Olympiques' arena - they played the season at Baribeau Arena - but rather a hub arena, home to a dozen neutral site games between various opponents. The Olympiques only played here twice as of April 2021, but because it's in Gatineau, their logo and colours still appear here. I'll make it up there someday, though I have little interest in seeing another cookie-cutter community rink with a thousand seats like every other one.
