Nickname commonly referring to American city Detroit, MI for it's success in the NHL. The original Hockeytown, USA however, is Eveleth, MN, which was the first city to claim the title and is the home of the USA Hockey Hall of Fame.
***Note*** Sports Illustrated and Yahoo! Sports both agreed in 2007 that the title of "Hockeytown USA" should be moved from Detroit, MI to St. Paul, MN and was published in both internet and press articles.
Detroit used to be Hockeytown, but St. Paul has so many more passionate hockey fans, the title was moved.
