Minnesota is considered the "State of Hockey." It is considered the State of Hockey because of how devoted Minnesota hockey fans. From the Minnesota Wild, the Minnesota Gophers, and the high school level, Minnesota fans simply love the game of hockey. The Minnesota Gophers are a storied program, built from players that are from Minnesota. They have captured multiple National Championships and produced many NHL players as well as Olympians.
The Minnesota Gophers play at legendary Mariucci Arena, one of the finest hockey facilities in all of college hockey. The banners hanging from the ceiling displays the talented teams Minnesota has produced. The Minnesota Gophers have also had several Hobey Baker winners, awarded to the top collegiate player.
Besides the Minnesota Gophers, Minnesota hockey fans will also flock to the Xcel Energy Center to support the Minnesota Wild, the state's NHL hockey team. The Minnesota Wild arrive here after the Minnesota Northstars moved to Dallas, Texas. An NHL team returned to the State of Hockey and have been supported well ever since. The love for the game starts at the Minnesota High School level, as the Minnesota State High School Hockey Tournament is the largest sports tournament in the United States in terms of viewing and attendance.
