When it comes to the best arenas in which to see a hockey game, Little Caesars Arena in Detroit is right up there near the top of the heap.

Missed it by 'That' Much

Second place isn't so bad, right?

Canada-Sports-Betting.com surveyed fans across the country and crunched the numbers to find out the best NHL arena in the US. The Detroit arena which opened in September 2017, landed in second place for overall fan experience, based on a few key metrics.

According to WWMT-TV, the study was based on the average price of beer per ounce, walking distance to the arena from public transportation, nearby restaurants, and availability of parking.

Factors such as safety, security, and the cities' crime rates were not considered for the survey.

Sure, most of us have grumbled about how far we've had to walk to Little Caesars Arena or how much we've had to pay for parking (depending on the event) but it certainly could be worse.
