Attended the Greyhounds 2017-18 home opener at the Essar Centre when the Oshawa Generals were in town. Beer & food pricing were more reasonable than other arenas/venues that I am used to in the Toronto area. A good time was had by all!

The arena hosts many hockey games and it's own team, The Soo Greyhounds. Many concerts and shows are also located at the Essar Centre.
