Ticket Prices

This category is an easy one. We all want to watch hockey, but there is nothing worse than paying $200 to see your team lose, no matter how good your seats are. Actually, it even sucks to pay $200 and see your team win.

Anyway, the Toronto Maple Leafs get their first big win of the season — the most expensive tickets at an average of $113.66 in the 2014-15 season, according to the Team Marketing Report. This is the first time I feel a little bit of sympathy for these guys. Their team totally sucks but their fans have to pay a little fortune for every loss they get to witness. The Florida Panthers have the cheapest tickets at an average of $33.39 by the way — less than a third of the average Leafs ticket.

But where does the Colorado Avalanche rank? According to the Team Marketing Report, last season’s average ticket came at a price of $47.56, ranking 25th among NHL clubs. So, 25 points for Gryffindor! Uhhh… the Avalanche! Off to a good start.
