Portland’s Rose Quarter complex has much to offer sports fans, since in addition to hosting the Portland Trail Blazers at Moda Center, the adjacent Veterans Memorial Coliseum is home to the city’s premiere hockey team, the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League. It is important to book Veterans Memorial Coliseum parking for the Portland Winterhawks ahead of time with ParkWhiz to have a space ready for game time. Originally based in Edmonton, Alberta, as the Edmonton Oil Kings, the team relocated to Portland in June 1976, splitting their home games with the venue when it was known as just Memorial Coliseum and what is now known as the Moda Center. The team began playing home games at only Veterans Memorial Coliseum starting with the 2021-22 season. The Winterhawks have been historically successful within the Western Hockey League and the larger Canadian Hockey League, winning the Ed Chynoweth Cup in 1983, 1998 and 2013, and the CHL Memorial Cup in 1983 and 1998. The team has been especially prodigious at producing alumni that go on to be notable NHL players, such as Adam Deadmarsh, Jannik Hansen, Seth Jarvis, Mark Messier, Sven Baertshi, Cam Neely and Marian Hossa, among many others. The team name was the “Portland Winter Hawks” prior to a change in May 2009 when it was formally concatenated to just the “Portland Winterhawks”. The Portland Winterhawks are owned by Winterhawks Sports Group. In addition to the many concerts and other events at the venue, the legendary Winterhawks have many devoted fans, so it is prudent to book Veterans Memorial Coliseum parking in advance with ParkWhiz.
