It'll cost $2.50 to $7 more to see the Vancouver Canucks, but the National Hockey League club remains third cheapest in Canada.

"Demand for tickets has never been higher," said customer service director Jordan Thorsteinson.

Single-game exhibition tickets go on sale Friday. Regular season tickets are available Sept. 16.

A $30.25 upper bowl end zone seat last season is now $32.75 while an $86.50 seat in the corners and ends of the lower bowl has become $93.50. It'll cost even more to see one of the 10 premium or premium plus games, including Todd Bertuzzi and the Florida Panthers on Jan. 7, 2007. Those prices have not been announced.

Seven family nights feature four-ticket packs starting at $103 and the Last Seat in the House half-price single-ticket promotion returns for select games. Prices include GST, but not Ticketmaster's $5.25 per ticket service charge or the varied handling charges. Prices for the 17,000 season tickets remain frozen.
