SENATORS ANNOUNCE TICKET PRICES FOR NEW ARENA

     The average price for Senators tickets will drop once the
team moves into its new arena next January, the team announced
yesterday.  Ottawa fans will pay from C$15 to C$97 a ticket to
see a game after the team moves from its current Civic Centre
home to the 18,500-seat Palladium.  While the high end tickets
will be costlier at the new facility and the low-end tickets
cheeper, average prices will drop.  The average ticket price for
seats in the new facility will be C$43.56, compared to the
C$48.62 average fans will pay for next season's games in the
10,500-seat Civic Centre.  This year, the Senators' average
ticket price is C$46.20.  Only 430 seats at the Palladium will be
available for C$15; after that, the next lowest price will be
C$23.99 a ticket.  Senators' Owner Rod Bryden points out that the
team's prices at the new facility are lower than 16 of the 26 NHL
teams' prices this season.  Bryden stressed that Senators tickets
include a C$2 surcharge to repay the Ontario Government for
building access to the new arena.  Bryden: "Our objective is to
deliver a wining NHL hockey team in a world-class facility, at a
price our fans feel is fair and that they can afford" (Michael
Prentice, OTTAWA CITIZEN, 3/1).
