2017 NHL All-Star Game Tickets Averaging Over $400 on Resale Market

January 24, 2017


The National Hockey League's brightest stars will convene at Staples Center in Los Angeles for the 62nd annual All-Star Game this weekend. The two-day affair, which will feature a bevy of entertainment on Saturday and Sunday, touches down in Los Angeles for the first time since 2002. And with that long drought now over, NHL All-Star Game tickets are drawing big demand on the resale market.

On TicketIQ, the average resale price for 2017 NHL All-Star Game tickets is now $407. That makes it the third most expensive NHL All-Star Game since 2011. Over that time, however, the league experienced the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season as well as 2014's cancellation of the game due to the Winter Olympics. Even so, this year's All-Star Game is considerably pricier on average than 2011's game at PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina and 2015's game at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Take a look at how prices stack up for both days at this year's All-Star Weekend below:

The National Hockey League will showcase its best stars on Saturday night at Staples Center in the All-Star Skills Competition. The league will crown new winners in several contests, including the fastest skater, accuracy shot and hardest shot. The most notable change for 2017 is the replacement of the breakaway challenge with the Four-Line Challenge. NHL All-Star Saturday Night tickets currently average $245 and the get-in price is $57, as Montreal Canadiens all-star Shea Weber looks for his third straight hardest shot competition victory in Los Angeles. The average 2017 NHL Saturday Night tickets are 34 percent less expensive than the 2016 ones, and the get-in price shows a 59 percent decrease from the previous year.
