TORONTO, Ont. – As the Maple Leafs sit in first place in the Eastern Conference, they are also in first place in a category which has nothing to do with their performance on-ice.
The team is first overall in the NHL when it comes to the cost of hockey tickets, with an average ticket selling in the secondary market for $368.60, according to Forbes.
The magazine reports at face value, one seat at the ACC can run anywhere between $73 and $403.
The $368 figure makes a Maple Leafs resale ticket priced $55 higher than the average cost to see the Stanley Cup champions the Chicago Blackhawks.
The next six most expensive teams to see on ice – all Canadian teams – are Winnipeg, Edmonton, Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal.
For anyone who wants to catch an NHL game but doesn’t want to pay high prices, $76 is the average resale ticket price for the Phoenix Coyotes.
