Minnesota does, and it really isn't all that close. Minnesota has the most registered youth hockey players (53,450 in 2010. Next closest was Michigan with 51,404 registered youth players), produces the most Division 1 hockey players (currently 326 players, or 20.36% of all D1 players. Next closest is Massachusetts with 14.81%), and produces the most pro hockey players (Minnesota has produced 216 players all-time. Massachusetts is next closest with 168). This is why Minnesota is known as the "State of Hockey".

Minnesota has a long tradition of hockey, primarily because of the more than 10,000 lakes, combined with the cold weather climate. This produces the perfect setting for young Minnesotans when it comes to learning how to play hockey at an early age. Minnesota has more than 75,000 kids that play hockey, more than any other State in the country. It also has the largest High School Hockey tournament in the country. There are five Division 1 college hockey teams, and one professional hockey team. In 2009, the Minnesota State Legislature officially declared Minnesota as "The State of Hockey".
