Us sport fans in Michigan have always had a soft spot in our hearts for the Detroit Red Wings, why I really do not know.  I am not even a big fan of Hockey but I do support the Red Wings, unlike basketball where I am not a big fan of Basketball and really have no concern whether the Detroit Piston won or lose.

The personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2018's Best Cities for Hockey Fans. 

Where did Detroit rank?  Well before I tell you that let me tell you a little bit about their methodology.

To determine the best places for hockey spectators, WalletHub compared 73 U.S. cities based on two divisional categories, professional and college hockey, across 21 key metrics. The data set ranges from the performance level of the city’s teams to minimum season ticket prices to stadium capacity.

Detroit ranked as the second best city for Hockey fans, the following is the rest of the rankings:
