Welcome to Saint Paul: The Capital of 'The State of Hockey'

Our Mission:

To provide the opportunity for St. Paul area youth to  participate in the sport of ice hockey and develop the skills and knowledge necessary for all players to compete at their highest level.

Only in St. Paul can you build a rink on the tarmac of an active airstrip for three days of hockey action.  Capitals parents were instrumental in bringing Hockey Day MN 2015 to Holman Field.  St. Paul Youth Hockey teamed up with Serving Our Troops, FOX Sports, the MN Wild, and the MN National Guard for a weekend of games featuring Police & Fire, Veterans from MN and Canada, High Schools: St. Paul Johnson, Cretin-Derham Hall, St. Paul Academy, St. Thomas, and Hill Murray, as well as several Capitals and East Side youth hockey games.

Congratulations New Boards Members!

  • Chris LeClair
  • Tiernee Murphy
  • Joe Hughes
  • Davi Axelson
  • Troy Alexander

These five were elected from among 12 strong candidates.  The association is fortunate to have an active and engaged parent base. Thanks to all who made the effort to run for the board.  Terms begin with the May 26th meeting.


As you have probably heard, long-time Executive Director, Laura Shaffer, will be retiring her position within the month.  In order to enhance service to players and families, the board of directors elected to split the position.  Please welcome Katie Murphy and Mike Pickett to the Saint Paul Capitals Hockey Association team.   Katie will oversee day to day operations and administrative duties, and Mike will focus on communications, community outreach, sponsorship and fundraising initiatives.  Offices are located within the Charles M. Schulz Highland Arena at 800 Snelling Ave. So. in Highland Park.
