Opened in 1993, Mariucci combines the luxuries of a modern facility (unobstructed sightlines, multiple concession stands) while maintaining a sense of history with a lobby that doubles as a shrine to Minnesota hockey. Add in 10,000 screaming Gopher fans and you have the best venue in college hockey.
