Attendance records could fall as UMD begins first full season at new arena by raising banner
A record home attendance mark is all but guaranteed for 2011-12 as the Minnesota Duluth men's hockey team begins its first full season at Amsoil Arena.
Winning the 2011 Division I title and the allure of a new rink have sparked added interest resulting in 4,907 season tickets sold for an 18-game home schedule -- 4,004 to the public, 903 to students. Last season's figures were 3,772 public tickets and 746 student tickets. Amsoil Arena capacity is 6,764.
