Franchise Notes

In Chicago, Danny Ecker cited data from ticket search engine SeatGeek as showing that the average price on the secondary market for the Blackhawks’ first 10 home games is “up 10 percent over this point last season, to $165 apiece.” Secondary market tickets “remain more than twice as expensive as the roughly $70 average ticket to a game.” SeatGeek analysts said that “pent-up demand from last season's lockout-truncated campaign has pushed up prices leaguewide, too.” The average ticket resale price among all NHL teams “also is up about 10 percent year over year to $89” (, 10/21).

FULL HOUSE: Vikings officials said that “just a couple of thousand tickets per game remain for Metrodome games" against the Redskins, Eagles and Lions, while other two home games -- against the Packers and Bears -- “are sold out.” In St. Paul, Charley Walters noted despite the Vikings' 1-5 start and “probable absence from the playoffs, there won't be any TV blackouts this season” (, 10/21).

PAYING TRIBUTE: In San Antonio, Dan McCarney noted the Spurs have added a “special camouflage alternate to honor San Antonio’s strong military roots.” There is “no immediate word on when or how often the Spurs will wear the jerseys, images of which were not yet publicly available” (, 10/21).
