The world’s largest consumer hockey show returns to Saint Paul RiverCentre this Friday and Saturday.


Last year’s Let’s Play Hockey Expo was attended by more than 40,000 hockey enthusiasts.

The 29th Annual Let’s Play Hockey Expo, the world’s largest consumer hockey show, returns to Saint Paul RiverCentre on Friday-Saturday, March 9-10 (Friday 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.- 5 p.m.). Held in conjunction with the Minnesota State High School League’s Boys’ Hockey Tournament, the Expo is FREE, 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.

Hockey enthusiasts can check out gear from nearly 200 exhibitors, including many companies exhibiting at the Expo for the first time. Cutting-edge product demonstrations, giveaways, 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, the Expo will have several interactive booths including a synthetic ice skating area for kids to skate (bring your skates!). There will also be a floorball court and several other interactives that are fun for all ages.

This year the Expo will also welcome the Hanson Brothers from the movie Slapshot as well as Jacob and Olly, the social media sensations from On The Bench. Other celebrities are expected to make appearances throughout the two-day event.

The Expo at the Saint Paul RiverCentre and the state 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 and the Minnesota Wild.
