The first arena opened in 1914 but burned down in 1924. The new arena was built in 1926 by Nathan Podoloff with his father and two brothers and held over 4,000 people. The Arena hosted the American Hockey League's New Haven Eagles from 1936 to 1951, the New Haven Blades of the Eastern Hockey League from 1954 to 1972 and Yale Hockey from 1914 to 1917 (at the first Arena) and from 1927 to 1959. The Arena was replaced by the New Haven Coliseum in 1972.
