Below is an interesting look at America's Pro Sports. Interesting to see that despite payrolls ranking 4th out of the major American sports, the NHL has the 2nd highest ticket prices. Only NFL games (Where a team only has 8 homes games a season) are more expensive.
The Montreal Canadiens have the highest average ticket prices in the NHL. Canadiens tickets are more than twice as expensive as the Los Angeles Lakers (highest average NBA ticket) and more than three times as expensive as a New York Yankees ticket (highest in baseball). The Tampa Bay Lightning though are tied for the lowest average ticket price out of the 4 main American sports. Only the Cincinnati Reds have as low an average price. Both are $15.22. In contrast a Montreal Canadiens average ticket price is $269.19.
