Leafs Attendance Dips to a 16-year Low
Leaf’s fans appear to feel almost as defeated as the team.
Monday’s game against the Minnesota Wild saw the lowest attendance in 16 years, drawing only 18,366 fans, around 450 people shy of a sellout. In October, the team had a non-sellout, but before that, the last time the team failed to sell capacity was in 2002.
Less than an hour before the game began, ticket prices were slashed in half.
Leaf’s are eliminated from the playoff’s, placing 28th overall. Ratings have also dropped to the point where the game has been removed from Hockey Night in Canada for the first time since 1972.
Leaf’s are back on the ice Thursday when they host the Florida Panthers.
