As of Saturday, SaskTel Centre is ending designated smoking areas at the facility. It will make the building and grounds fully smoke-free. The Saskatoon Blades home opener will be the first event impacted by the change. SaskTel Centre has a no re-entry policy and in keeping with that, people will not be allowed to leave the building for a cigarette and then come back inside. The no-smoking rules apply to vaping as well.
