ROLLER HOCKEY EXPANSION FEES REPORTEDLY HIT $1 MILLION
Published October 26, 1994
Nohl Rahn, one of the owners of the Artic Blast (MN's roller hockey team), said after returning from a Roller Hockey International league meeting, that the cost of franchise has increased from the $125,000 that the MN group paid to $1M now. Rahn on future expansion: "New York and Detroit could join the league next season. Right now the roller-skating industry is selling more equipment than hockey" (Sid Hartman, Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 10/25).
