Lockout costs: NHL Ticket Prices Increase in 2013

After a long 3.5 month lockout stint, the NHL came back. 34 games in all were lost but NHL hockey has resumed for a shortened 48 game format season that has each team playing just about every other night. However, as fans you are losing a bit more this season than just a few games and it’s coming out of your wallet. Ticket prices for the second straight year have increased. If you recall the prices from last year, then perhaps this won’t come as a shock to you. The average ticket price this season is up 5.7 percent with an average ticket price of $61.01 per game seat. Oh how wonderful, not. It seems the NHL is just looking to make up for lost time which in turn was lost funds. Here we are all joyous that “hockey is back” and poof it’s time to pay-up! Check-out the table below to see how your team has been hit for this 2013 NHL Season:

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
