Season Ticket Member Appreciation Night

These members, often the team's most loyal fans, are treated to a night of exclusive perks and surprises. For instance, two lucky season ticket members get the opportunity to participate in exclusive experiences.

These can include the pre-game puck drop, a tradition in hockey where a guest of honor drops the puck between the team captains before the start of the game.

Another exciting opportunity is the chance to make the in-arena PA announcement as the players take the ice for warm-ups. This event is not just about watching a game; it's about creating an unforgettable experience for season ticket members.
