National Hockey League breaks record

Published April 16, 2024 at 4:03 PM

Each season, the National Hockey League announces their overall attendance between all 32 teams collectively and quite often they've broken records in terms of the most fans who have attended games as a whole (void of the debacle in Tempe and Mullet Arena with the soon-to-be relocated Arizona Coyotes.)

This season, with eighteen games remaining in the regular season, a total of 22,560,364 patrons have attended games across the league. This is up from the 22.4 million that went through turnstiles the previous season.

An awful lot of talk has happened this week across the league with records being broken, and although an increase of just over 160,000 is incremental in the grand scheme of things and the aforementioned Coyotes situation, whether you like Gary Bettman or not, he and his stakeholders are doing a formidable job having people attend games.

Whether this trend continues next year is obviously yet to be determined, and anything is possible, but as you can tell, it appears the league is in good hands, at least at present.
