The Centre Étienne Desmarteau is multi-purpose complex center with 2 arenas in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The first Arena in the complex have 2,200 seat which took Caroline Ouellette's name[1] [2]. The second Arena, more small, have a space for 600 persons. We find also two Olympic gymnasiums, some changing rooms, and one weights room for training. The center is named in honour of Étienne Desmarteau, a Canadian Olympic athlete during the 1904 Summer Olympics. The arena hosted the basketball preliminaries during the 1976 Summer Olympics[3]. Following the Olympics, it used mostly as an ice hockey venue. It was once home to the Le Junior de Montreal hockey team. Now Centre Étienne Desmarteau is the home of Montreal Stars a professional women's ice hockey team in the Canadian Women's Hockey League.
