Complete table[edit]

The leagues are segregated between those which normally would play in an outdoor stadium as opposed to those leagues that use indoor arenas. It should be noted that some outdoor league stadiums are equipped with either retractable or non-retractable roofs when and where weather conditions (such as rain or extreme heat/cold) would not allow a game to be played and/or watched effectively, comfortably and/or safely without such cover. The tables are sorted by average attendance.

  1. ^ The actual number of regular-season games was 2,430. However, there were only 2,426 game dates because 5 regularly scheduled games were rained out and made up as "true" doubleheaders, in which one ticket admitted the holder to two games. "Day-night" doubleheaders, in which teams sell separate tickets to two games in a single day, are counted as two games. An additional one-game playoff was held at the conclusion of the regular season as a tie-breaker to determine the place-holder of the final wild card slot in the American League.

Also, only games played in teams' regular home arenas are included in the calculations. In 2010–11, six teams—the Boston Bruins, Carolina Hurricanes, Columbus Blue Jackets, Minnesota Wild, Phoenix Coyotes, and San Jose Sharks—opened the season with two games in Europe as part of the annual NHL Premiere series, with each team losing one home game as a result. Two teams, the Calgary Flames and Pittsburgh Penguins, hosted outdoor events at large football stadiums, respectively the Heritage Classic and Winter Classic.
