NHL FRANCHISE ROUND-UP: KINGS DEAL COULD BE DONE BY TUESDAY
Published October 6, 1995
A U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge approved the sale of the Kings for $113.5M to Phillip Anschutz and Edward Roski yesterday. "All parties involved" are working to close the deal by Tuesday (L.A. TIMES, 10/6)....Tonight's Avalanche opener sold out in 21 minutes (USA TODAY, 10/6)....The Panthers' struggles are examined by David Neal of the MIAMI HERALD. "Despite playing to 97 percent capacity, rising salaries and a lack of other significant revenue streams have caused the Panthers to operate in a red deeper than their road uniforms" (MIAMI HERALD, 10/5)....The Senators, "barring a later surge in ticket sales," will likely not sell out their home opener at the 10,575-seat Civic Centre. The team, which moves to the new 18-500 seat Palladium in January, is only averaging 8,300 tickets sold per game for the new arena (OTTAWA CITIZEN, 10/6)....NHL VP of Public Relations Arthur Pincus denied a report in yesterday's Vancouver PROVINCE that NHL VP of Hockey Ops Brian Burke is headed to join a new Minnesota franchise as President & COO. Pincus called the rumors "way off." According to Pincus, Burke has recently signed a contract extension with the league for at least two years (THE DAILY).
