OILERS MEET NHL MANDATE, WILL RECEIVE SMALL MARKET SUBSIDY

          The NHL Oilers said yesterday that they had sold 13,121
     season tickets, enabling them to meet the 13,000-ticket
     requirement mandated by the NHL in order to qualify for the
     US$2.5M small-market subsidy, according to Andrew Chung of
     the EDMONTON JOURNAL.  This was the "third consecutive year
     [that] season-ticket sales have come down to the wire"
     (EDMONTON JOURNAL, 6/1).  Oilers VP/Business Administration
     Doug Piper said that the team surpassed the requirement
     "without the help of a large corporation buying up a block
     of seats."  Piper: "We did see quite a few newcomers and a
     lot of people sharing" (Jerry Ward, EDMONTON SUN, 6/1).
