Sorry Vegas, Detroit isn’t giving up the Hockeytown title anytime soon.
According to a study released by the personal finance website Wallethub on Wednesday, June 6, the Motor City is the second-best place for hockey fans in the United States. It trails only Boston, according to Wallethub.
To arrive at its rankings, a panel of sports experts from around the U.S. ranked 73 U.S. cities based on 21 key indicators of a good hockey city including ticket prices, stadium capacity and performance level of each city’s teams.
Detroit, which is obviously bolstered by the Detroit Red Wings and their 11 Stanley Cups, finished No. 1 in the NHL rank.
