The Dave Andreychuk Mountain Arena & Skating Centre is a recreation complex in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. It includes a figure skating rink and a 2,500-seat ice hockey arena. Originally it was built in 1966, known as the Mountain Arena until it was renovated in 2005 and renamed in honour of Dave Andreychuk, a former ice hockey player from Hamilton.

Tenants[edit]

On two brief occasions, the arena was home to two Hamilton entries in the Ontario Hockey League, the Fincups (1977–1978) and the Steelhawks (1984–1985). From 1973 to 2015 it was home to Hamilton Red Wings of the Ontario Junior Hockey League Hamilton Jr. B Bengals lacrosse.

Currently the senior Hamilton Steelhawks play out of the arena.
