Xcel Energy Center History

If you're in the St. Paul area looking for hockey, you're in the right spot, as the Minnesota Wild have become a major part of the local sports scene for a reason and it helps that there is an amazing home ice for them to play at. Xcel Energy Center tends to be rocking from game to game throughout the regular season, making it simply the place to be if you're hoping to see some big-time hockey. Once you're there watching the big game in a match-up already filled with plenty of twists, turns and nail-biting moments, you'll see for yourself why there is absolutely nothing close to the live viewing experience.

Originally opened in 2000, Xcel Energy Center has become one of the major draws in St. Paul in the years since it first got rolling. Hockey fans in Minnesota were anxiously awaiting the return of the NHL to the state and they could smell it coming when ground first broke on the arena in 1998, by the time the first event at the arena, a Minnesota Wild preseason game against the Anaheim Ducks, was held Minnesotans could not get into the venue quickly enough. But it isn't only about pro hockey, however, as it has hosted the NCAA's Frozen Four, high school volleyball tournaments and plenty of other events, giving you plenty of different options if you're looking for sports of all kinds.
