What a great place for a concert. Sound was excellent and the atmosphere was very intimate. Seats were spacious enough to stand and dance. The only problem was the narrow concourse.

Have gone to two Amerks games this year and both were overtime wins! Good venue for hockey and concession prices are not as high as some other sports venues

Great venue to watch a hockey game! Any seat is a good one to see the Amerks. Fans are very loyal and the Amerks can surely hit a puck!
