There’s no guarantee the NHL will return to Quebec City anytime soon, however if and when it happens the city will have an arena ready to go.

Expansion and relocation are ongoing topics in the NHL with Quebec City, Las Vegas and Seattle among other cities being frontrunners as destinations the league would consider.

The seating chart for the new Quebec arena was released Friday, so here’s a look at that plus some photos courtesy of the Construction nouveau Colisée Facebook page that shows some of the recent progress in construction, which began in September 2012.
