RED WINGS PLAYERS INVEST IN ROLLER HOCKEY
Published December 14, 1994
Red Wings Shawn Burr and Dino Ciccarelli are among a group of investors who purchased the Seattle Roller Hockey franchise. The team, "whose nickname might be determined by a major local sponsor," will play at Cobo Arena in Detroit for the June- September schedule. Burr said he will play for his team if the NHL season is cancelled due to the labor dispute. This is the second franchise for Ciccarelli and Burr, who also own the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Hockey League. Burr said the two will be very involved, adding that season-ticket prices for a 12-game package will range from $100 for children to $150 for adults. The team's home games will be on local cable and all sports radio (Keith Gave, DETROIT FREE PRESS, 12/13).
