The 32,000 square feet arena area seats over 13,000 for sporting events. In addition, the facility is receiving another set of renovation projects prior to the 2010 home opener.

Franchise History

Hockey had been very successful in Oklahoma City for a number of years. In fact, the Blazers boasted one of the highest attendance rates of all of the Central Hockey League's teams for 17 years. But in the summer of 2009, the organization announced they would cease operations. Only days later, the owners began courting the NHL's Edmonton Oilers with the hope of landing the franchise's dormant American Hockey League affiliate. Early in 2010, it became official that the highest level of minor-league hockey would soon begin play in Oklahoma City.
