NHL Franchise Notes: Penguins Tackling Giant Ticket-Distribution Task
Published January 15, 2013
MOTORING ON: In Detroit, Helene St. James writes the Red Wings have "solid support -- an estimated 1,000 fans watched Day 2 of camp -- but even so, there's recognition that it'll take some work to soothe the anger fans feel after the 113-day lockout." Red Wings RW Danny Cleary said players recognize that "we've upset a lot of fans," especially "the fickle fan." Cleary: "Our jobs, as players, is to put a good product on the ice, sign an extra autograph, as many autographs as you can. With the shortened season, it's going to be hard to do a lot of appearances, to get out there in the community. All I know is, our team will work hard to represent the jersey proudly" (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 1/15).
ATTACKING PRICES: The Sharks yesterday announced a series of fan appreciation promotions that will take place over the next several weeks. Season-ticket holders, executive suite owners and corporate partners will receive a double discount (now 30%, normally 15%) on all regularly priced Sharks merchandise from Jan. 16-31. For all five Sharks home games in January, fans purchasing a main meal item at any main concourse or Comerica Bank Club food service station with fountain drink will receive a free 16 oz. soda (Sharks).
COLUMBUS DAY: The Blue Jackets yesterday announced a pair of ticket offers and several in-game festivities around the club's Jan. 21 home-opener against the Red Wings. Fans who purchase a ticket for the game will get a second of equal value for no additional cost. The Blue Jackets and Ticketmaster also will waive convenience and order processing fees for online ticket purchases from Jan. 15-21 (Blue Jackets).
