    Not true. I saw a high school hockey game at McHugh. St Sebastian's vs the Fessenden School. Fessenden won something like 6-1.

    The Ralph(best one obviously ) Grand Forks, ND
    The Old Ralph- Grand Forks, ND
    Sanford Center- Bemidji, MN (small and quiet)
    Amsoil Arena- Duluth, MN (2nd favorite rink, great sight lines)
    National Hockey Center- St. Cloud, MN (concrete palace, decent student section, pretty sterile arena)
    Marriuci Arena- Minneapolis, MN (Only trip was the last UND/UMN match-up as WCHA foes, good sight lines unless you're in SRO which I was, big open bowl)
    Century Link Center- Omaha, NE (wayyy too big for 99% of college hockey teams so always feels empty)
    Magness Arena- Denver, CO (nothing special, lack of devoted fans)
    World Arena- Colorado Springs, CO (worst student section, overall decent atmosphere)
    TD Ameritrade Park- Omaha, NE (Where the CWS is played, Outdoor hockey game, great time and fun town)

    Postseason venues:
    Xcel Energy Center (Great arena, 4 WCHA Final Five's & 2011 Frozen Four)
    Target Center (Terrible boards, terrible ice, hopefully renovations help this)
    Scheels Arena (2014 West Regionals, cool little rink)

    Rinks I would like to visit:
    Kohl Center
    New Omaha rink
    Goggin Arena
    Lawson Arena
    Yost
    Maine Arena(not sure of the name)
    BU's rink
    Conte
    If you're ever in Boston to visit Agannis or Conte, you've got to check out Matthews Arena (Northeastern U.), formerly Boston Arena, the oldest indoor hockey arena in North America still being used for hockey. It's a few miles away from BC and BU. Add it to your list. You'll be glad you did.

    Looking at my list, it's not really all that long. I should remedy that.

    National Hockey Center; SCSU
    Mariucci Arena; U of MN
    TCF Bank Stadium; U of MN
    Verizon Wireless Center; Mankato State
    St. Paul Civic Center; WCHA Final Five - last one before they tore down the old building. Clear boards!
    Xcel Energy Center; WCHA Final Five and various other non-conference games
    Magness; DU
    Bradley Center, Milwaukee; 2006 Frozen Four
    ScottTrade Center, St. Louis; 2007 Frozen Four

    I've also played in and watched a whole host of non-collegiate games in various DIII buildings around the Twin Cities.
