I don't understand why concessions are so high in the first place.  Especially in the minor leagues where most teams are hurting for attendance.  Of course cheaper concessions will bring more people out and they are more likely to spend more money if concessions aren't outrageous.  I would like this to get around to all sporting events.  More people will come if they don't think your costing them an arm and a leg.

I don't know about the NHL. But I believe most minor league teams don't get anything from the concessions. So probably don't have a say in the price.

Yea, our owners have mentioned that in the past.  But we also have had $2 beer and drinks you can buy before every game before the puck drops.  I don't drink much beer, but i sure get my $2 drink every game.  You see beer drinkers walking around with a beer in every hand.  If they could carry one with a foot i think they would.  😂

NHL has a mix.  Those who own their arenas (e.g., Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Denver) get the lion's share of concessions revenue. Other teams have various contract terms that give them some portion of the concessions income.  An odd situation existed in St. Louis for several seasons, after the previous majority owner of the Blues sold his concession rights to cover a balloon payment on his initial debt to buy the team.  This was a long-term concession deal that the new team owners inherited, which proves: It ain't just minor league hockey teams who make stupid business decisions.
