Published January 5, 1998
CO attorney Jac Sperling, who assisted St. Paul's NHL expansion bid, has been named the club's CEO. He will also be a minority investor and member of the board of the team's general partner, Naegele Sports. The St. Paul NHL team also named Bill Robertson as Dir of Communications. He spent the last four-plus years as Dir of Communications for Anaheim Sports. Prior to that he was Dir of Media Services for the T-Wolves and Target Center (Minnesota Hockey NHL). NOTES: In St. Paul, Charley Walters reported that the team "is back to its original nickname, 'The Wild,' which is expected to be announced within three weeks" (PIONEER PRESS, 1/4)....St. Paul's City Council and Civic Center Authority approved a 25-year arena lease deal with the expansion team. The debate now moves to the State Legislature, where city officials will ask for $65M in state bonds to pay half the bill for the new $130M arena (STAR TRIBUNE, 12/28).
