In the years leading up to the completion of Xcel Energy Center, Minnesota Wild and Xcel
Energy Center officials envisioned museum exhibits in the arena dedicated to Minnesota's contributions to the sport of hockey. Below are listed the exhibits that can be viewed in Xcel
Energy Center:

  • Wells Fargo Jersey Wall: The jerseys of approximately 200 high school hockey teams
    (almost all of the boys' programs and about a third of the girls) are on display on the
    Club Cambria Executive Suite Level. These pose a striking tribute to high school hockey
    in the state and highlight the hosting of both the annual boys and girls MSHSL
    tournaments each February and March in the arena. 
  • Minnesota State High School League Tournaments: As a complement to the high school jersey exhibit, St. Paul Pioneer Press headlines from eighteen selected tournaments are displayed on eight support pillars that surround the lower level. The exhibit begins with
    the very first event in 1945 and includes representations from the second level boys' tournament as well as the girls' competition that began in 1995. 
  • College Hockey Awards: Located outside the Iron Range Grill just inside Gate 4 are the Hobey Baker and Patty Kazmaier Awards annually honoring the nation's most
    outstanding male and female college players. 
  • US Hockey Hall of Fame Museum Exhibits: The 100 level's Iron Range Grill restaurant features six exhibit cases relating to the Eveleth, Minnesota-based tribute to hockey in
    the United States. Two cases are dedicated to the museum and its exhibits while four
    rotate on a two-year basis and highlight various Iron Range communities as well as the
    areas' outstanding players and teams. In addition, the walls feature murals of past senior, high school, and youth teams from across "the Range." 
  • WCHA Jerseys: As host of the WCHA's Men's Final Five Tournament, Xcel Energy
    Center displays the jerseys of the league's ten member teams just inside Gate 2. In the
    same general vicinity is the restored original Zamboni from the St. Paul Auditorium, wall hangings recognizing historic moments in Minnesota hockey and an exhibit on the
    Broadmoor Trophy that goes to the winner of the Final Five event. 
  • St. Paul Champions: The Treasure Island Resort & Casino Club Level exhibits honor St.
    Paul minor league (plus one major league) champions representing the seasons of 1919-
    20, 1934-35, 1948-49, 1959-60, 1960-61, and 1964-65. These exhibits include a replica jersey and St. Paul Pioneer Press' headlines and photographs that appear on six support pillars near the surrounding seating area. Also on this level a hockey/corporate timeline feature significant events in both Minnesota and Treasure Island history. 
  • Other Exhibits: Rotating exhibits on various aspects of Minnesota hockey can be found in
    the Hockey Lodge and at Gate 3. The latter area also features an exhibit on Mr./Ms.
    Hockey that annually recognizes the most outstanding male and female Minnesota high
    school hockey players. Other lower-level concourse wall exhibits feature Minnesota
    North Star's announcer Al Shaver, hockey legend Herb Brooks and former Wild player
    Sergei Zholtok. The 200 level concourse highlights the state's first major league team, the
    St. Paul Athletic Club, and its greatest player Frank "Moose" Goheen. Also on that level
    are photomurals of historic Minnesota arenas and wall treatments of junior and women's hockey. The Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference has its own jersey display representing the league's nine varsity programs.

on the lap of an accompanying adult. Fold-up strollers should be stored under your seat
while non-folding strollers should be checked at Guest Services, located near sections
