Servus Credit Union Place (or Servus Place for short) is a $43-million multipurpose leisure centre that opened on September 30, 2006 in St. Albert, Alberta. At 32,000 sq. ft., Servus Place includes three NHL-sized arenas, an aquatic centre, fitness centre, indoor playground, leisure ice surface, three gymnasium courts, two field houses, a teaching kitchen, plus retail operations and food service outlets.
The three NHL-sized arenas include the 2,023-seat Performance Arena, home of the St. Albert Steel ice hockey team of the Alberta Junior Hockey League and the Edmonton Drillers of the Canadian Major Indoor Soccer League.
The two other rinks include Mark Messier Arena, named in honour of St. Albert's famous son and hockey star Mark Messier, and Troy Murray Arena, named after Troy Murray the former NHLer from St. Albert. The Mark Messier/Troy Murray Arenas were part of the original twin Campbell Arenas, which were expanded to build the present-day Servus Place.
Servus Place is also the home of the men's and women's Grant MacEwan University hockey teams, the Griffins.
