WILL THE ORR/TSONGAS TICKET BE A WINNER IN LOWELL?
Published January 19, 1995
Bruins great Bobby Orr and former U.S. Senator Paul Tsongas are trying to bring an American Hockey League franchise to Lowell, MA. The two, "who head a group of local investors," met with AHL officials before Tuesday's All-Star Game in Providence. Tsongas, who also hopes to bring minor league baseball to Lowell: "I think we proved we have our act together." The team would play in an 8,000 seat downtown arena that is scheduled to be completed in November '96. AHL President Dave Andrews: "With their group and the potential of the building, it's a terrific site for the league" (Todd Arthur, BOSTON GLOBE, 1/19).
