The Xcel Energy Center is the home to a variety of events each spring, including high school state tournaments, concerts, and of course Minnesota Wild hockey.

Here is a look at how the venue transformed from the site of the Minnesota State High School League State Wrestling Tournament to Minnesota Wild hockey to a Maroon 5 concert to the MSHSL Boy's State Hockey Tournament in 2013.

This year's state wrestling tournament is Feb. 27 through March 1. The boy's state hockey tournament is March 5-8.
