The Bruins announced Monday that the price of season tickets will not increase for the 2016-17 season.

A loge seat will remain between $90-$155 per game, while a balcony seat will range between $48-$107 per game. Season ticket holders received an email with renewal information Monday.

The Bruins also announced new measures it has taken to curb the scalping of tickets. In addition to raising prices for high-volume resellers, the team has targeted high-volume resellers outside of the East Coast and cancelled accounts, freeing up tickets for wait-listed fans.

“Through a process of data analysis, the Bruins have identified accounts that are held by high-volume resellers,” the team said in a release. “In addition to the new ticket prices, accounts held by high-volume resellers based outside of New England, Connecticut and New York state have been cancelled and the Bruins will make those tickets available to New England-based fans who are currently on the Bruins Season Ticket Holder wait list – which began in 2011 and currently consists of over 10,000 fans.”

The Bruins are currently 36-23-7, good for third in the Atlantic Division, behind the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers.
