What's the Arena Like?
On February 25, 1997, to celebrate the sesquicentennial of the town of Jonquière, the Saguenéens played a regular season game against Granby at the Palais des Sports de Saguenay. The Sags claim to represent all of the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region, and the game in Jonquière was part of that. It ended in a 7-4 Sags victory.

Twenty-one years later, the Sags were back at the Palais des Sports, and this time, it wasn't in celebration, it was because of the building inspector. The aging Centre Georges-Vézina has been having roof problems for a couple of years, and fears of imminent roof collapse evicted the Sags for a span of time yet to be determined. They're still there as of this writing; presumably the move is only until emergency roof repairs can be made to the CGV.

I haven't been to the Palais des Sports in Jonquière, but I'm certainly planning to stop in when I make my inevitable trip to the Saguenay.
How To Get There
From A-70: Exit at rue Saint-Hubert and proceed north. Make a left on rue de la Fabrique. Make a right on rue Pelletier and the arena will be on your right.
What's It Used For Today?
The primary tenant of the Palais des Sports is the Marquis de Saguenay of the LNAH.
