Prices For Golden Knights Playoff Tickets Are Second Highest In NHL

This series has the highest average asking price in the Western Conference, and the second highest in the NHL behind the Bruins-Maple Leafs series. Demand for games at Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena has pushed average asking prices to $557, second only to Toronto’s $626. Vegas was the story of the NHL last season when it became the first expansion team in North American sports history to qualify for its sport’s final. Though Vegas’ history only spans two seasons, this series marks the second time the Sharks and Golden Knights have met in the postseason. San Jose has missed the playoffs only six times since joining the league as an expansion team in 1991-92, and advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2015-16, but lost to Pittsburgh.
