NEW YORK (CP) - The NHL says it set an all-time record for January attendance.

Despite empty seats in places like Chicago, New Jersey, Washington, Long Island and St. Louis, the league announced Thursday that it attracted 3,193,093 fans to 187 total games and posted a per-game average of 17,075 in January, the highest in the NHL's 89-year history.

The per-game figure, which represents 92.3 per cent of capacity, was 1.7 per cent higher than last January's 16,795 average.
