Seating Tips & Advice

  • "Some of my favorites are in section 124." - The first few rows come with tons of explosive hits along the glass, and a great view of the goalies, my favorite position.
  • "Section 123 being my preference, to the immediate left of the Wings bench."
  • "For me the best seats are in section 109." - Between the top of the circle and the blue line, opposite the benches, at the end where wings shoot twice, about 10 rows off the ice so you can see over the glass.
