Here is our second installment of tracking home attendance, the 20 game mark, with comparisons from 10 games this year and last seasons final numbers.

Ottawa has dropped down two slots in the past 10 games, dropping over 350 per game on average. The Stars have dropped from 22nd to 27th, going from 84.7 percent capacity after 10 games down to 76.9 percent after 20 games.

The Coyotes and Islanders are still at the bottom of the league in home attendance, but their attendance per game is on the rise.

NHL Attendance For Each Team After 12 Home Games: 2012-13

Here is round two of our attendance tracking for this season. As noted in our first installment, we’re tracking based on six game increments or 25% percent of their home games.

Attendance figures have to be taken with a grain of salt as they are not always reported correctly, see Florida Panthers.

NHL Attendance For Each Team After 6 Home Games: 2012-13

In past years we’ve tracked NHL attendance in 10 game segments, basically 25% of a teams home schedule.

Due to the exciting lockout we were all forced to endure, teams will only be playing 24 home games this year. In keeping with 25% of the schedule, we are posting NHL attendance for each team after 6 home games this year.

I’m still not sure of the accuracy of the Panthers numbers, as I don’t see how they are running at over 100% capacity.

NHL Attendance for each team after 10 home games

Attendance has been a hot topic at various points this season. Record lows are hitting some arenas despite the fact that the team is winning. I’ve been keeping track of home attendance and have put together attendance figures for each NHL team after 10 home dates, along with their numbers from the last 2 seasons.

Will Phoenix’s season average drop below 10,000? Will fans in Columbus and Atlanta start to recognize the teams current success? Despite being in playoff contention and not having an owner, will fans in Dallas start to head back to the arena? The Stars are averaging 3,354 less than last year.

Don’t hesitate to leave a comment on your thoughts on NHL attendance so far this season. I plan on posting an update at the 20 game mark.

More on Brad Richards … Radulov signing KHL extension? NHL attendance

  • Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News: Heika answers questions from readers. Asked if signing Brad Richards to a contract extension could help entice a new owner. Heika thinks it’s possible and that they have already considered it, but it would be tough to put together as it would involve Richards, the team, the lenders and the NHL. Richards does have a no trade, therefore controls his destiny before he becomes a UFA on July 1st. If the team is struggling in February, Heika thinks he would consider waiving it to move to a contender. He later goes on to say that a contract extension for Richards before the end of the season is unlikely. Heika doesn’t think the Stars would be interested in Sheldon Souray if he’s put on re-entry waivers, he has another year left after this year, and it may be better for the organization to rid out the young kids.
