The Hobart Arena is a 3,782-seat multi-purpose arena in Troy, Ohio. It officially opened with 10 sold out performances of Holiday on Ice in September 1950.

That first season, an independent (non-league) hockey team was formed called the Miami Valley Bruins. They played a number of exhibition games. At the end of the season the Bruins entered the 1950-51 United States National Senior Championship. Hobart Arena was the host to some semi-final and final games.

The next season (1951-52) the Bruins became the Troy Bruins of the International Hockey League (1945-2001). They played from 1951 through 1959.
