The Ohio State Men’s Ice Hockey contingency plan

Wanted to jot down a couple quick details about a plan brewing to go to OSU hockey games as a contingency plan in the event of a prolonged NHL work stoppage:

The games/arena:

  • Most OSU games come in back-to-back series that are played on Friday & Saturday nights.
  • Alcohol is not served on the lower level. You can only buy it on the club level. Tickets are the same price for either.
  • Parking is free.


  • Season tickets are $150 for the full season
  • 4 game packs are available for $36
  • 8 game packs are available for $72
