AHL TO CONSIDER EXPANSION: BALTIMORE A LEADING CANDIDATE

     AHL President Dave Andrews wants to expand the 16-team
league.  Portland Pirates owner Tom Ebright, chair of the AHL's
expansion committee whose Pirates originally were in Baltimore,
said Baltimore could "re-emerge" with the "right ownership and
environment."  Bob Teck and Alan Gertner, partners in the Gertec
Corp. which builds private ice hockey arenas, are possible
Baltimore owners.  The two have also scouted sites in PA and NJ.
The AHL would like to expand by 3-4 teams by next year, with a
decision possible by December 16 (Sandra McKee, Baltimore SUN,
11/30).
