The ice hockey competitions of the 2014 Winter Olympics were played at two venues, located 300 meters from each other, within the Olympic Park in Sochi, Russia. The Bolshoy Ice Dome, which seats 12,000, resembles a Fabergé egg. The Shayba Arena, seating 7,000, is a moveable structure that will be used after the games in another Russian city. Both venues are international sized (60 meters by 30 meters).
Twelve teams competed in the men’s tournament and eight teams in the women’s. The tournaments began 8 February 2014. The women’s concluded on 20 February and the men’s on 23 February.
Canada went undefeated throughout both the men and women’s tournaments and repeated as gold medalists, after winning both tournaments on home soil in Vancouver.
