The 17th Street Rink was an outdoor ice hockey rink located on the athletic field of Bemidji High School in Bemidji, Minnesota.  The rink served as a temporary home for the revived Bemidji State Beavers men's ice hockey team for the 1959-60 season.  The team was discontinued after a roof collapse at their previous home the Bemidji Sports Arena.  The venue would only be used for two home games.  The facility was built with a $1,000 donation for the Beaver Union Board. 

The opening game at the facility was a Beavers 4-2 loss to the St. Cloud State Huskies on February 13, 1960 which was stopped at 3:21 of the 3rd period when referee Dick Kroll was injured.  The team would post a 1-1-0 record at this location.

The rink would be physically moved to a location on the campus of the Bemidji State campus just south of the physical education building and gymnasium.  The "new" rink would be known as the College Rink or the "19th Street Rink"  The new location would serve as the home to the team from 1960 to 1967
