Fun Facts For 400

by Staff Writer / Minnesota Wild

The assumed modern NHL record of 487 straight sellouts was set by the Colorado Avalanche from November 9th, 1995 to October 14th, 2006. Others in the top-10 all-time include the Detroit Red Wings (452), Wild (399), the Buffalo Sabres (359), the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs (who have each surpassed 300 at least two separate times in their long histories) and the Los Angeles Kings (282). Please note none of these teams included preseason games in their totals and the NHL does not have attendance figures from the Original Six era.
