With my kids, it was ice cream. We didn't bring the first kid to see the Admirals until around 3 years old. Less problems and stuff to haul, better immunity systems. Played tag and swung her around in the corner stairs between periods. Second kid was younger, but had big sister to also entertain her as well as the game. By 4 or 5 they would point at penalties on the ice.

Last time the younger went to a game she said "why are both defensemen outside the dots in the neutral zone? Nobody is going to score from there! They aren't playing their wings that wide." She is old enough to drive herself to the game, but we average 5500, not 15,550.

As a two time parent, wait until three years old. You will enjoy the games more, so will your child and seat neighbors.
