The St. Paul Rangers were a minor professional team based in St. Paul, Minnesota. They were one of the original five teams of the Central Professional Hockey League. They were an affiliate of the New York Rangers.

Their name was changed to the Minnesota Rangers in 1965 after the neighbouring city of Minneapolis lost its Central League team. The Rangers, though, continued to play in St. Paul. In 1966 the Rangers moved their farm team to Omaha in anticipation of the start of the NHL's Minnesota North Stars in 1967.

The Rangers won the Adams Cup in 1964-65.
