A somewhat new facility, the Leon Centre was first opened in 2008 with a seating capacity of almost 6,000 for hockey and almost 7,000 for concerts.

Alongside the frequent hockey games are live theater events and concert appearances by some of the biggest names in music such as Styx, Reba McIntyre and more.
