the club generally was
called the R.I. Reds. Around the rest of the American Hockey
League cities it was the
Providence Reds. Reds played at R.I. Auditorium or
"The Arena" 1111 North Main Street
in Providence 1926 through 1972

  1. Loved seeing games in the "Arena". The cigarette smoke was so thick there that by game's end a cloud was almost at ice level. Players would fight at the drop of the puck. The Civic Center brought some decomrum to the team, in addition to a ban on smoking. That move lost a lot of true fans. Games were never more exciting that at the Arena.
