Warrior Ice Arena

Warrior Arena is the home arena of the Boston Pride of the National Women's Hockey League and the practice facility of the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League who moved in from Harvard University's Bright-Landry Hockey Center, and Ristuccia Ice Arena in Wilmington, Massachusetts respectively.[2]

Public transit to the facility is via the MBTA Boston Landing station, a station on the MBTA Commuter Rail system's Framingham/Worcester Line. Groundbreaking took place in December 2014, with the completed facility hosting its grand opening on September 8th, 2016.[3]

The Bruins' fellow tenants at the TD Garden when both are in their respective wintertime league seasons, the Boston Celtics NBA basketball team, now have their own, brand new professional basketball training facility named The Auerbach Center completed just west of the Warrior Ice Arena, at 40 Guest Street, which itself opened on June 19, 2018.[4][5]
