07:16 AM ET 05.24 | The price of watching hockey in the State of Hockey is on the rise. The Wild set its season ticket prices for next season, and there is an average increase of 4.5 percent per ticket. Season ticket per-game prices range from $23 to $92. Prices for single-game tickets won't come until at least August. "We're continuing to provide an improved product, and along with that sometimes comes a price increase," said COO Matt Majka. The Wild signed free agents Zach Parise and Ryan Suter to lofty contracts last summer, and made the playoffs before a five-game exit to Chicago. "We feel that we've stepped up as an organization in a substantial way, but we respect the choices that fans have in front of them and we will continue to work to earn their support," Majka said.

Actually, those prices seem pretty reasonable by today's standards.

Really? I don't know of course, because I've never been there for a game but everywhere I've gone in the past several years tix were generally higher than that during the regular season (some places a LOT higher).

Very reasonable seating prices compared to what most teams charge.

$23 would buy you a seat on the toilet here. The $92 upgrade gets you a video screen bolted on to the stall door.
