NHL Oilers Exec VP/Business Operations Doug Piper announced "across-the-board" ticket increases in the 20% range for the '98-99 season, according to Robert Tychkowski of the EDMONTON SUN. The cheapest seats will rise from C$12 to C$14; mid-range seating from C$30-C$36; and top-level seats from C$60 to C$72. There will now be 5,700 seats at the Coliseum priced under C$23 (EDMONTON SUN, 3/31). WILL THE GREAT ONE RETURN? In Edmonton, Scott Haskins writes that a "reliable" source told him that Wayne Gretzky is putting up $35M to purchase controlling interest in the Oilers. The source added that the deal will be announced at the end of the Rangers' season (EDMONTON SUN, 3/31).
