Nearly a month into the season and the Chicago Blackhawks have registered nary a loss. With 20 points in 11 games, the Blackhawks have actually done most of their damage on the road this season, throwing up a 7-0-2 mark away from the United Center.
Beginning on February 12th, the Blackhawks will begin a streak of 7 consecutive home games. Anticipation is building in the windy city, as the average price for Blackhawks tickets at home have risen 4% from $186 dollars to $194 dollars according to TiqIQ, despite the limited action in the United Center so far this year.
Kicking off the home stand will be the 7-1 Anaheim Ducks, who currently sit in second place behind the Blackhawks in the Western Conference. Despite the Ducks early season success and the long-awaited return home for the Blackhawks, there is no hefty premium for tickets to this game. In fact, the average ticket price of $204 dollars is barely above the season average, and the get-in price of $69 dollars is on the lower side for games at the United Center this season.
On February 15, the San Jose Sharks come to town. Another premier Western Conference team, the Sharks carry a significant premium to the typical game, with the average seat for this tilt checking in at $282 dollars, good for 45% above the season average. The get-in price of $103 is also quite high as well.
The most expensive game in the home stand is the February 17 tilt against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings, who entered the season tied with the Blackhawks as Western Conference favorites at some Vegas sportsbooks. While the Kings have disappointed early on this season, this game checks in with an average price of $290 dollars, a whopping 49% premium over the Blackhawks tickets season average. The cheapest seat in the house will run you $106 bucks, rendering this Kings game as one of the biggest draws at the United Center all year.
