The Hottest Ticket in Town is Going Fast! Get Them While You Can!

The hottest ticket in town is going fast! Get them while you can!

It’s my favorite time of the year. NHL playoff hockey is on TV every night and like most years this season’s chase for Lord Stanley’s Cup has proven to be as intense, passionate, physical, and fast as we hockey fans expect. It is the hardest team championship to win in all of sport with its grueling pace, physicality, and the need to win four “best of 7” series in a 6 week span of time.

I am certainly biased but there is nothing better than playoff hockey.

It also is getting down to nitty-gritty time if you are thinking of getting in the mix for good seats for the inaugural season of Big Ten Hockey at the first season in the new Pegula Ice Arena. While you will be able to purchase season tickets until the end of the summer, in order to be in Phase I of the “Seat selection” process (which begins on July 16) you need to get your deposit of $25 per seat in by this Friday May 24 at 5pm.


Deposits are due this Friday, May 24 by 5pm!

Call 1-800-Nittany ASAP!

If you want to guarantee a great seat for the first season and be at the home opener for this magnificent $90 million state of the art facility, don’t wait another minute!

Tickets are going to go fast as 3,400 seat deposits are in so far for the 4,950 non-student tickets available. The 1,050 student tickets will go on sale this fall early in the semester. If you are a student mark your calendar for early September to watch out for that announcement.

If you are considering the purchase of a luxury suite, there is still time by contacting Greg Myford directly @ 814-865-1757.

Coach Gadowsky is bringing in 9 new recruits from all over North America to join a returning roster that defied all odds and finished its inaugural NCAA Division I season at 13-14-0. The team scored upset wins over Big Ten foes Michigan State (3-2), Ohio State (5-4), and finished the season with a huge win at the Kohl Center over the #16 ranked Wisconsin Badgers, 3-2 in OT!

The season also featured a signature win over Hockey East’s University of Vermont 4-2 in front of a record PSU crowd of 19,592 at the Well Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Let’s face it; you are going to want to be there on Friday, October 11, 2013 at 8 p.m. for the nationally-televised home opener in Pegula Ice Arena when we welcome the Black Knights of Army to christen the building.

In addition, the non-conference schedule features a number of traditional college hockey powers that have recently played in the NCAA Frozen Four! While I can’t tell you dates or exact teams, I will whet your appetite and toss you a hint on a featured game that will take place in Pegula Ice Arena this season. Think recent National Championship team from New England that Penn Stater’s will surely pack the arena to see as we “jump in to the deep end of the pool” in just year two of our NCAA College Hockey timeline.

So if you want to be a part of history; if you want to look out at the spectacular view of “Hockey Valley” from the glass front of the building (even better if you are a club seat holder and get the view from the premium seat level!); if you want to experience the “loudest, rockingest arena in college hockey”; if you want to get caught up in the speed, skill, teamwork, physical play, and intensity of college hockey; then you gotta pick up the phone right now and call 1-800-Nittany or stop in at the Athletic ticket office before 5 p.m. on May 24.

The hottest ticket in town this fall will go fast. You are going to want to be one of the lucky 6,000 people who can really say “I was there from the beginning; the day that Pegula Ice Arena ushered in the dawn of a new ice age!
