Lindenwood Ice Arena is an arena and recreational sport facility located in Wentzville, Missouri and owned and operated by Lindenwood University.[1] LU Ice Arena serves as the home for LU Lindenwood Lions Men's and Women's ice hockey teams and LU synchronized skating team.[2]

Lindenwood University Ice Arena

It features two NHL size sheets of ice for ice hockey, figure skating and open skating, and local high school hockey . Other features of the arena include 8 locker rooms, heated bleacher seating, concession stand, and pro shop/LU Hockey team store. Current capacity for spectators is about 1,000 for each of the two NHL size hockey rinks.[3]

The ice arena received renovations during the summer of 2010 to prepare for the transition of the university's athletic department to the NCAA. The renovation included new in-ice logos, new boards, and major updates to the women's locker room that includes a new video room and new workout room for the team's move to NCAA Division I. Also the university constructed a new men's ACHA DII/JV locker room.

History

The Lindenwood Ice Arena was built in 1998 as the Wentzville Ice Arena. The facility was developed, and originally owned, by Wayne Stumpf. The 67,800-square-foot (6,300 m2) complex was constructed at a cost of $4.5 million. The Wentzville Ice Arena first opened its doors to the public on December 18, 1998.[4] Naming rights were later sold, and the arena became known as the CenturyTel Ice Arena. The arena was sold to Lindenwood University in July 2004.[5]
