Providence College has agreed to a multi-year deal with the AHL’s Providence Bruins to hold practices at Schneider Arena beginning this season.
The Bruins, who play all home games at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in downtown Providence, will conduct their practices at Schneider Arena when the Dunkin’ Donuts Center is not available. Previously, the Bruins practiced at the Rhode Island Sports Center in North Smithfield, R.I.
Schneider Arena is one of Providence College’s buildings that is in constant use.
It serves the needs of the men’s and women’s hockey programs, the Providence club hockey team, and intramural programs. The building also serves as the home of many of Rhode Island’s youth and high school hockey teams, as well as junior hockey programs.
