The Charlottetown Civic Centre is about to get a brand new name, or at least part of the building is.
The Guardian has learned the Charlottetown Islanders of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League have reached an agreement with Eastlink for the naming rights to the building.
A further announcement is expected to take place on Friday night at the Islanders’ home opener but centre ice at the Civic Centre now reads Welcome to Eastlink Centre.
The Islanders hold the naming rights to the building just as the P.E.I. Rocket, the team’s former name, had since the team’s inception a decade ago.
The Civic Centre would be the second arena in the province to carry the Eastlink name. The arena portion of Credit Union Place is called Eastlink Arena.
