ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The home of the NHL's Anaheim Ducks is getting a new name.

Arrowhead Pond will become Honda Center in October, the first name change in the arena's 13-year history. Arrowhead Water's naming rights agreement expires in September.

The deal was announced Wednesday, with the arena's management company saying more details would be provided in October.

The building hosts other sporting events, concerts and special events.
