Inauguration du palais des sports l opold drolet

The Palais des Sports Léopold-Drolet is a 3,646-seat multi-purpose arena in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. It was built in 1965. Starting in 2012, this arena was renovated and is now home to the Sherbrooke Phoenix of the QMJHL.

For the 1976 Summer Olympics in neighboring Montreal, it hosted four women and five men's team handball matches.

It was home to the Sherbrooke Castors ice hockey team, before their move to Lewiston, Maine as the Lewiston Maineiacs in 2003 and the Sherbrooke Canadiens before they became the Fredericton Canadiens in 1990. With the recent folding of the Lewiston Maineiacs, Sherbrooke will be getting an expansion QMJHL team (Sherbrooke Phoenix) for the 2012-13 and the team will play at the renovated Palais De Sports. The team will be owned by a group led by former NHL goaltender Jocelyn Thibault.

It held the 2015 QMJHL Draft on June 7, 2015.
