The Samuel Moskovitch Arena is closed until April 1, 2020, so the City can do major renovations, the most important being the replacement of the freon-based refrigeration system with a new direct CO2 system, which is more efficient. There will be other energy-saving in the way water is heated in the locker room and Zamboni. In addition, the fire alarm system will be upgraded and access to the building will be made easier for persons with disabilities. 

The outdoor rink will also be closed during the renovations.
