VANCOUVER - Tickets for the final round of the Stanley Cup playoffs haven't even gone on sale to the general public yet, but seats are already fetching thousands of dollars online.
Ticket reselling websites are taking listings from season ticket holders, and they say prices so far are the highest they've ever seen for a Stanley Cup final.
FanSnap, a U.S.-based website that allows users to search several reselling websites, says the average ticket price for the Vancouver games is currently about $1,900 and in Boston it's roughly $1,100.
Online reseller StubHub says tickets in Vancouver are selling for an average of $970, and spokeswoman Joellen Ferrer says prices are the highest her site has seen in a Stanley Cup final in its 10-year history.
Ferrer says tickets for last year's Chicago-Philadelphia series were about $150 less than what tickets are selling for now.
The Canucks plan to release details of their general ticket sales today, while the Bruins plan to start sales on Tuesday.
