The ticket demand often is one of the first things a player encounters when he reaches the NHL. Minor leagues typically give free tickets to their players, and demand is minimal. At the next level, the numbers inflate.
“You find out where a lot of people are and who you went to high school with when you start playing in the NHL,” said Penner, a rookie of the year candidate. “You get some guy you went to school with for three days and his cousin wants tickets for his son.”
Said Getzlaf, “It’s hard at the start. You want to try and get everybody to a game. You don’t want to overlook people.”
It can add up. Fifteen tickets at, say, $60 each, will run close to $1,000.
