Private Jet Charter to the NHL Finals
The Stanley Cup Finals is always a major event for ice hockey fans, but this season’s Finals will be one for the history books. This year, the National Hockey League (NHL) is celebrating its 100th season in operation. As you may have guessed, the league isn’t letting the Centennial pass by without a bash. The 2016-2017 season is packed with special events and recognitions to honor this major milestone, with the Stanley Cup Finals being the grand finale.
During the 2016-2017 season, 30 teams compete in an 82-game regular season that ends on 9th April 2017. Once the winners of the Eastern and Western Conferences have been crowned, the champion teams will face off in a best-of-seven series to win the Stanley Cup. The NHL Finals will begin on 12th April 2017 and will continue through mid-June. As the Finals are played on the winning teams’ home arenas, the locations and schedule are still undetermined. Exciting as this may be, the last-minute nature of the Finals can leave fans scrambling to make arrangements and find a decent flight. We’re here to help. Once the schedule is announced, give us a call and we’ll help you book a private jet charter to the Finals. Better yet, we can fly you between the East Coast and the West Coast throughout the series so you don’t miss a moment of the action.
In addition to being among the most prestigious, the Stanley Cup is the oldest sports trophy in North America. When it was first awarded in 1893, the Stanley Cup was a “challenge trophy,” held by the champion team until they lost their league title to another club or another league’s champion issued a formal challenge and defeated the reigning champion. In 1915, the Cup was shared between the National Hockey Association and the Pacific Coast Hockey Association. In 1926, after a series of mergers, the Stanley Cup became the championship trophy of the NHL.
The 2016 Stanley Cup Finals were a battle between the San Jose Sharks and the Pittsburgh Penguins, with the Penguins coming out victorious after only six games. This year, fans are expecting the Penguins to make the Finals once again. They may be matched up against the Chicago Blackhawks, considered by many to be the best team in the Western Conference. Once tickets become available in April, they will be available for purchase at this link.
