Since 2009, TicketIQ (formerly TiqIQ) has used its intelligence to help fans get the best deals for live events and now offers Fee Free Montreal Canadiens tickets for all of their games during the NHL season.
The Montreal Canadiens are in the Atlantic Division of the National Hockey League, and are the most successful team in NHL history, having won 24 Stanley Cup championships. 4 teams in their division that they play regularly are the Florida Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning, Boston Bruins, and Toronto Maple Leafs.
Most NHL teams have two or three-levels at their venues, with the 100 level being the most expensive and the 200 level less expensive. Upper-level seats behind the nets are usually cheaper than sideline seats. The closer to center ice, the more expensive tickets get. The cheapest tickets for NHL teams start under $25 for lower-demand teams. Higher demand teams in major markets like the Rangers and Red Wings have tickets that start from $100 to $200. The most expensive NHL tickets for all teams are in the first rows of every section, with tickets on the glass often being the most expensive, sometimes running into the thousands of dollars. Seats on the glass are the most expensive tickets for any team, and are often hard to find, as they're in very high demand. Major team rivalry games can also be 25-50% more than the average tickets for any team, and most teams have a couple major rivals that can impact prices.
Every NHL team has club and premium seats, some of which are available on the secondary market, with others only available directly through the team, either by calling on the phone or purchasing directly through their site. Older NHL venues typically have suite sections above the lower bowl, with the current trend being to build out more unique lower-level premium options that bring you closer to the action, not further away. Venues like T-Mobile Arena and Climate Pledge have led the way with some of the next-generation premium areas. Most premium and VIP options come with in-seat waiter service, private restrooms and parking, and separate entrances to avoid waiting in line. Also, you can often pick-up tickets that have been left with a ticket concierge. The most expensive areas also come with all-inclusive alcohol and food service.
Primary market face-value tickets generally go on sale shortly after the NHL schedule is released. This year the schedule was released on Thursday, July 22nd.
