AVALANCHE GAINING SPEED AS NAME OF DENVER'S NHL TEAM?
Published June 26, 1995
Sources close to Denver's new NHL team say that of the eight possible names, Avalanche and Black Bears are the favorites of management, with Cougars an "outside possibility." A fan feedback forum (in person, by fax, phone or mail) will be open until July 5. The forum is not a vote. One source said that since "Avalanche" has the best logo and merchandising opportunities, it "has the best chance." In addition, the team unveiled its ticket prices Friday, using the Nugget's ticket plan as a model. The new plan emphasizes packaging, partnerships and monthly payment options. Also, once the NBA and NHL schedules are released, the Nuggets and the NHL team will design a "combo" package by which fans may purchase tickets to seven games for each team (Curtis Eichelberger, ROCKY MOUNTIAN NEWS, 6/24).
