St. Louis Blues News – 2013 Blues Updates
Despite a strong 2013 playoff campaign, St. Louis Blues tickets
are down eleven percent in average price since last year, the most of any team in the League. Only three other NHL teams saw a decrease in average price since last season – Boston Bruins (-3%), Washington Capitals (-2%), and Winnipeg Jets (-4%). Blues tickets last season averaged $111 and were the 15th most expensive in the League. In 2013, St. Louis Blues ticket prices are averaging $98 and are the fifth cheapest NHL ticket. The new Central Division makeup after the NHL realignment
could be the reason for the fall. Three of the four newest members to the Central Division – Dallas Stars, Colorado Avalanche, and Winnipeg Jets – all have a cheaper road ticket than the League average.
The most expensive games to be played at Scottrade Center
are the 4/13 matchup against the Detroit Red Wings
(avg. $149) and the 12/28 game against rival Chicago Blackhawks
(avg. $141). Now that the Red Wings have moved from the West to the East, the two teams will meet less during the regular season making demand for tickets to each of the games skyrocket. This year’s regular season matchup is the last on the St. Louis Blues schedule.
Blues tickets on the road are double the cost of home tickets and seventh most expensive in the League. St. Louis has plenty of skill players to go deep into the NHL Playoffs
this season; the newest additions to the St. Louis Blues roster are Derek Roy, Keight Aucoin, Alexandre Bolduc, Maxin Lapierre, and recently acquired Magnus Paajarvi. Although they are not a flashy offensive team, NHL fans are willing to pay big bucks to see the Blues when they come to town.
