$10,000,000+ Scoreboard For Honda Center
Evidently, there just isn't enough excitement in a normal NHL hockey game for the fans in southern California. In an effort to get customers "fired up", ownership of the team is in the process of installing a state-of-the-art $10,000,000 Daktronic scoreboard, per this article in the OC Register.
While the project is a financial benefit for the guys at Daktronics in bucolic Brookings, SD, it's probable that the expense will be added to the prices puck fans pay for already expensive tickets. Most NHL teams now have ticket prices that vary according to the anticipated demand. When the Ducks host the Chicago Blackhawks, for instance, tickets will cost more than a game against the Winnipeg Jets. The average for decent seats this season will be $116 each and season tickets will go for $5,220. Maybe watching the game on TV and using the money to send your kid to college would be more sensible.
Aside from that, what happens to the current scoreboard? I better find out about that.
