The Roy Wilkins Auditorium is a 5,000-seat multi-purpose arena in St. Paul, Minnesota. Designed by renowned African American municipal architect Clarence W. Wigington, it was built in 1932 as the St. Paul Auditorium, and was renamed for Roy Wilkins in 1985. It is located next door to the Xcel Energy Center, home of the National Hockey League's Minnesota Wild

AboutEdit

The University of Minnesota's Golden Gophers hockey team used the arena as one of their home rinks from the 1930s until 1950. The Minneapolis Lakers used the Auditorium when their regular home the Minneapolis Auditorium was not available. The Minnesota State Boys' High School Hockey Tournament was held at the Auditorium from 1945 to 1968. It was home to the Minnesota Fighting Saints ice hockey team in the fall of 1972, before they moved to the St. Paul Civic Center. The St. Paul Slam of the International Basketball Association played at Wilkins for two seasons, 1996-97 and 1997-98.
