Nashville isn’t one of the country’s top hockey cities for fans, according to a new report from WalletHub.   

WalletHub released its findings Wednesday, comparing 73 U.S. cities based on two divisional categories, professional and college hockey, across 21 key metrics. 

According to a release, the data ranges from the performance level of the city’s teams to minimum season ticket prices to stadium capacity. 

Nashville narrowly missed making the top 20, coming in at 21. 

Meanwhile Boston was ranked first, with Detroit, Pittsburgh, New York and Chicago rounding out the top 5. 

As far as attendance, Chicago had the highest rate in the NHL at 109.80 percent, which is 1.5 times higher than in Raleigh -- the city with the lowest at 71.30 percent.
