Going to a hockey game in Detroit is an unforgettable experience. From the pre-game excitement in downtown Detroit to the fast-paced action on the ice, You can feel the anticipation building as you see fans wearing their Red Wings gear and the sound of cheers and chants fills the air.

The home of the Detroit Red Wings is considered one of the best arenas in the National Hockey League. That’s according to a ranking compiled by Canada Sports Betting. They ranked the best NHL arenas based on the average price of beer per ounce, walking distance to the closest public transport, proximity to restaurants, and the availability of dedicated on-site parking. Each arena received a rating out of 10 for each metric, resulting in a total potential score of 40 points.

Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena (LCA) topped the list at spot number 2. Overall, the LCA had a score of 34.86. The arena opened its doors in September 2017. It has since become a central hub for sports, concerts, and other live events in the city.

Taking the top spot is Ball Arena in Denver, Colorado, which is the home of the Avalanche. The study rates Ball Arena as the number one NHL Arena for fans. Other notable arenas mentioned include the United Center in Chicago (number 20) and the Madison Square Garden in New York (#26).
