The published numbers are worthless. Every AHL team reports tickets distributed, so the number in the box score is essentially made up.

Nightly ticket numbers are still in individual AHL summaries and reports. For average attendance: http://www.hockeydb.com/nhl-attendan...L1941&sid=2017

It's normally in the individual game reports.

Not sure these are right. Tucson drew 6500 for its home opener. Pretty sure that's been their only home game.

They played 2 home games.

Yes - first was around 6,500 - second was 3,087. Honeymoon is over, I guess.

Yeah, because so many AHL teams sell out on Sunday afternoons

True, many teams struggle with Sundays, but I would have thought that the 2nd ever game in Tucson would have done a little better than that.

Sundays are going to be a tough sale until the NFL season is over.

This, Hershey even suffers from this and the are leading the league in attendance. Although, their numbers right now are inflated by already having a Sunday game with their famous Hershey Park pass night where all fans get a ticket to Hershey Park.

It's also a tough sell to get a full crowd in Hershey on Saturdays if Penn State has a home or primetime game.

Ouch. Missed the 2nd game. Hopefully it picks back up.

This should be reposted in every single attendance thread. Minor league hockey doesn't compete against the NFL, it tries to survives until football is over.

It's true. Providence is having something called "Kid's Opening Day" this Sunday despite having already played a couple Sunday games.

I expect the Patriots being on a bye has something to do with that.

With the Panthers and Hornets, Checkers play 3rd fiddle. Pink in the Rink, Race Night, and other special events always draw more.

I'd think that's a safe bet, and a really smart thing for them to do.

The Springfield Thunderbirds have their first of five Sunday games tomorrow, when the Pats are on their bye.
I'm willing to bet that SPG and PRO both put in 11/6 as a request for a game day, specifically knowing that the Patriots were off.

Follow-up: I attended that 11/6 SPG game. Announced attendance was 3,310. Actual bodies in the building was, by my estimate, closer to 2,000. And a large percentage of those were behind the T-Birds goal, where seats were 4-for-$44 plus 4 free hot dog/popcorn/sodas.
So, attendance inflation is alive and well in Springfield.
Not much money was made that day, I'm guessing.

Hershey had over 10,000 Saturday night versus WBS and 7,775 Friday versus Syracuse. It's clear that fans are picking the better games to attend.

I would be shocked if any Hershey/WBS game didn't sell out, especially on a weekend and a Saturday no less, and regardless of the team records.

Surprised Iowa is in the top 10. They've been the worst team in the league since relocating & this year is more of the same for them (currently 3rd worst in percentage).
