qplex Arena

Take in a hockey game or enjoy public skating at the qplex Arena! The rink is a National Hockey League-sized ice surface surrounded by more than 1,100 seats, with a total capacity of 1,500. The arena is home to the U18 AAA Fundy Kraken and the Saint John Vito’s AAA U18 hockey teams.

It has hosted several Hockey Canada events, including the 2023 Para Hockey Cup, a USA vs. Finland pretournament game ahead of the 2023 IIHF World Junior Championship, the 2018 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge (co-host), and the 2016 Telus Cup (now known as the Men’s U18 National Club Championship).

The indoor walking track doubles as the arena concourse. 

Arena Hours Open Daily: 6:30 a.m. - 12 a.m.

More than just ice

Graduation ceremonies, cheerleading and dance competitions have also been held at the qplex.

The ice is in at the qplex throughout the year and is available for private rentals while also being used for community-organized on ice programs like minor hockey.

  • We offer several free skating programs, including Public Skating, the Adult/Senior Skate, Tykes with Sticks, and the Parent and Tot Skate.
  • The qplex arena canteen is open during most games and events in the fall and winter.
