2018 hall of fame game
Anyone luck out and get tickets? They went on sale at 2 and were immediately sold out.
The much-anticipated Gophers-North Dakota 2018 showdown in Las Vegas sold out to the general public immediately when tickets went on sale Friday afternoon.
Fans eager to see the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Game on Oct. 27, 2018, at the Orleans Arena reported minimal success when trying to buy tickets at Ticketmaster.com around the 2 p.m. CST release time.
North Dakota fan Dylan Reichstadt tweeted, “Sioux vs Gopher game @ Vegas possibly sold out within about 5 seconds? Redirected at 2:00, no tickets available. Crazy.”
Reichstadt put out a query asking if anyone had luck getting tickets and Jenna Jorgensen responded, “None at all, and it’s heartbreaking. Crossing my fingers for the move!”
The “move” is referring to a change of venues to open up more seats. The Orleans Arena sits 10,000, while the nearby T-Mobile Arena can seat 17,500 for hockey games. The city’s new NHL franchise, the Vegas Golden Knights, will play at T-Mobile Arena beginning next season.
Dang. Didn't know they were going on sale yet. Was hoping to make that trek

Most of the tickets for the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Game were snapped up in the last couple of weeks during presales for UND Champions Club members.
The demand was high, especially after the highly successful game in New York City's Madison Square Garden in December against Boston College.
UND drew an estimated 8,000 fans to that game. The Fighting Hawks beat Boston College 4-3.
The Vegas game has been in the works for a couple of years—since Dave Hakstol was the head coach—and was officially announced in a press conference in July.
Officials decided to play the game at Orleans Arena to ensure a profit—T-Mobile would have charged significantly more in rent—and to make sure interest in these showcase games continued to build.
