BOSTON — The Boston Bruins today announced that from Feb. 16 until March 18, season ticket holders can renew their tickets — and 99% of the seats will be staying the same price or will be priced less for those customers.

Out of the 99%, 95% of the seats will be the same price, while the other 4% (the four corner loge sections — 3, 10, 14 & 21) will be reduced in price from $89 this season to $85 for next season.

“When we looked at areas that have sold well as season tickets, that’s an area that we’d like to spur additional season ticket sales,” Bruins VP of Business Operations Dan Zimmer told a small contingent of media today at TD Banknorth Garden.

The only seats that will be increasing in price are the ones along the glass all the way around the rink. The increase will be from $150 to $165.

While the only major news the Bruins had today was about the renewal program, Zimmer acknowledged that the club has received a couple thousand deposits from new customers that want to purchase season tickets for next season. That’s proof that no matter how bad the economy is outside the Garden, the product inside can still attract plenty of greenbacks.

“It’s been very gratifying. It’s really driven by the performance of the team. The team has played terrific this year. We always knew this was a great hockey market. Now we’re getting to see again how strong and loyal our fan base is again,” said Zimmer.
