Herb Brooks National Hockey Center

Home of the St. Cloud State Huskies, the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center supports not only the men's and women's SCSU ice hockey teams and the St. John's University men's hockey team, but numerous campus and community programs as well. The facility has hosted numerous USA Hockey National age-group festivals and training camps and was a venue for preliminary round games of the 2001 Women's World Hockey Championships.

In 1998, the facility hosted the State Democratic Convention, which pioneered a new effort to host large convention-type events. The new tradition continued in 2000, with the hosting of a Billy Graham Crusade.

The Herb Brooks National Hockey Center has completed a $15 million expansion and renovation project, with $8 million coming from private donors. The improvements added a spacious atrium, new west-end seating, expanded suites and club-level seating, wider concourses, a team store overlooking the atrium, and new and improved training facilities.
