The University of Saskatchewan Rutherford Arena is a hockey rink constructed in 1929, with its official opening in January, 1930.[1] The rink was used by the Saskatchewan Huskies hockey teams until 2018. It holds up to 700 people.

It was announced on October 13, 2016 that a new arena for the Huskies would be constructed on campus, following a donation of $12.25 million by Merlis Belsher. [2] That arena, Merlis Belsher Place, officially opened in 2018.
