How To Find The Cheapest 2022-23 NHL Tickets

April 13, 2021

Where To Buy 2022-23 NHL Tickets

Almost every team will have tickets available on both the primary and secondary ticket markets. For the primary market, the majority of teams use Ticketmaster, while a handful uses AXS. While every team is unique, teams are often 'sold out' of the best sections and seats, with more unsold face-value tickets available in the upper rows of the lower and upper levels. Some teams also have a more even mix of unsold tickets available throughout the venue, but the bottom line that smart ticket buyers need to check both 'unsold' primary and 'sold out' Secondary market options.

On the secondary market, TicketIQ has Fee-Free NHL tickets with a Refund Guarantee. Our Refund Guarantee states that if an event is canceled or deem unfit for fans to attend, TicketIQ will refund ticket buyers in as soon as 15 days. That means that you can buy from TicketIQ worry-free.

How To Find Discounted NHL Tickets

To find the cheapest NHL tickets, it's important to check both the primary and secondary ticket markets. Based on the demand for a given even, resale marketplaces like TicketIQ may be more or less expensive than face value options available through primary ticketing platforms like Ticketmaster. Weekend rivalry games are typically the most expensive game, while weekday games against lesser opponents are the best way to get to a game for cheap. For sporting events that take place every year, it's important to know when the event is actually going on sale, which is typically the middle of the off-season. Teams often adjust prices dynamically in-season, which can impact both face-value and resale ticket prices. For fans willing to make a commitment by purchasing season tickets, prices are typically 10%-20% below single-game face value prices.
