NHL TEAM NOTES: MIGHTY DUCKS OFFERING FANS A "GOAL CARD"
Published September 23, 1997
Mighty Duck fans who sign up for the "Die-Hard Duck Frequent Fan Rewards Program" will receive a "Goal Card," according to Tom Hoffarth of the L.A. DAILY NEWS. Once inside The Pond, fans can swipe their "Goal Card" through a kiosk machine to receive two points. An accumulation of 20 points is good for a Ducks team poster, 44 points can get you into a private practice session, 60 points is good for two Disneyland tickets and 80 points equals a brunch with the team's coaching staff (L.A. DAILY NEWS, 9/21). WHAT'S IN A NAME?: The St. Paul NHL expansion team is "giving fans an extra week to offer" suggestions on what to name the team. In addition to Gnats and Frozen Ears, fans in the "fishing-crazy" state have suggested the Flying Walleye, Ninja Muskies and Fighting Smelt. Other suggestions include the Corn Dogs, Ten Thousand Lakers and Puckeroos. Along with the nickname, the team also has to decide on what geographical reference to use, either Minnesota or St. Paul (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 9/23). NOTES: The Avalanche have a waiting list "of about" 3,000 fans (HOCKEY NEWS, 9/26)...In Montreal, Pat Hickey writes that the Senators "continue to be a tough sell in the suburb," as they are "stalled" at 9,400 season-ticket sales and have 47 unsold luxury suites (Montreal GAZETTE, 9/23).
