What a difference a decade makes! Ten years ago you might have had people handing you tickets to watch the Blackhawks play, but after two Stanley Cups in four season the Blackhawks are the 3rd most expensive ticket on the secondary market at a median price of $212.

The Blackhawks are the most expensive USA team and they have the most expensive regular season game that isn’t part of the Outdoor series when the Montreal Canadiens visit the Blackhawks on April 9th at a median price of $317 and the 2nd highest game when the Detroit Red Wings visit the Blackhawks at the United Center on March 16th for a median price of $292.

Now it is not a surprise that the team that was about to leave for the great Northwest and Seattle is the cheapest median ticket price at $49, but it is weird that the Anaheim Ducks that were the 2nd best team in the Western Conference behind the Blackhawks are second lowest at $54.

Canada is the leader though with four out of the top 5 markets north of the border including the Winnipeg Jets. The only middle of the market Canadian Market is the Ottawa Senators.

Here is the Top 10

1. Toronto Maple Leafs-$320

2.Winnipeg Jets-$230

3. Chicago Blackhawks-$212

4. Montreal Candiens-$200

5. Vancouver Canucks-$199

6. Pittsburgh Penguins-$185

7. Edmonton Oilers-$180

8. Boston Bruins-$164

9. New York Rangers-$162

10. Calgary Flames-$121
