NHL Events 2019

With its base firmly rooted in Canada, professional hockey began in 1909 with four teams, but in 1917, the National Hockey league formed. It wasn’t until 1924 before the Boston Bruins joined giving the U.S. its first professional team. The NHL shifted in 1942 to the “Original Six” now including teams in Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, NY, and Boston. For 25 years, the league built a following in and around these cities prompting its growth into an international group from Texas to Alberta and 31 total teams.

Since the sport was confined mainly to the cold weather cities, it needed superstars to attract attention from bigger markets down south. Enter Gordie Howe, Bobby Orr, Mario Lemieux, and Wayne Gretzky. Howe’s electric talent brought national attention to the game other superstars followed to create some of hockey’s greatest moments such as Lemieux’s 1988 performance where he scored five goals in five different ways. In 2015, the NHL made the most exciting shift in years when it introduced shootouts for regular season games. Generally reserved for the post-season, these hyper-intense game-deciders are one of the most exciting experiences in hockey.

Buying your ticket is one of the most exciting parts of the experience, here are some are some keys to help. Try to limit yourself to a budget. There are dozens of games throughout the season! Games against bad teams or mid-market teams tend to be cheaper, so search there first for the best value seats.
