Let's Play Hockey Expo Returns to Saint Paul RiverCentre March 8-9
The 30th Annual Let's Play Hockey Expo, the world's largest consumer hockey show, returns to Saint Paul RiverCentre March 8-9. Held in conjunction with the Minnesota State High School League's Boys' Hockey Tournament, the expo is open to the public and offers a sneak peek at the hottest hockey equipment and merchandise, hockey schools and camps, training devices and much more.
New in 2019, there will be a $5 admission fee for attendees who are over 18. Tickets can be purchased at the Saint Paul RiverCentre Box Office (cash only). Guests 18 and under are still free.
Hockey enthusiasts can check out gear from more than 100 exhibitors, including many companies exhibiting at the expo for the first time. Cutting-edge product demonstrations, giveaways, a floorball court, hourly door prize drawings and celebrity appearances make the expo one of the can't-miss hockey events of the season. In addition, a hockey memorabilia and sports card show will take place during the expo. This year there will be several grand prizes given away to expo attendees who register on-site.
This year the expo will welcome Minnesota North Star legends Mike Modano, Dino Ciccarelli and Neal Broten on Friday. On Saturday, Minnesota Wild players Devan Dubnyk and Jason Zucker will be in attendance. For more information, go to tseshopmn.com.
Saint Paul RiverCentre and the MSHSL Boys' State Hockey Tournament at Xcel Energy Center are connected, making it easy and convenient for fans to access the events. Last year's Let's Play Hockey Expo was attended by more than 40,000 hockey enthusiasts. The expo is presented by Let's Play Hockey, the Minnesota Wild and Saint Paul RiverCentre.
