Season-ticket holders get lockout options
By James Murphy
With a lockout looming, the Bruins this week reached out to their season-ticket holders and presented them with options should any NHL games be canceled. In an e-mail to season-ticket holders, Bruins President Cam Neely presented the following two choices:
In the first option, season-ticket holders may elect to earn a 3 percent APR credit on the ticket money for games missed. In electing this option, all ticket money and credit earned from games missed must stay on account. By choosing this option, season-ticket holders will be committing to renew their season tickets for the 2013-14 season and will lock in a price freeze on those tickets.
In the second option, season-ticket holders may elect to earn a 1 percent APR credit on the ticket money for games missed and receive monthly refunds on the ticket money for games missed. The 1 percent APR credit from games missed will stay on account.
An e-mail to the Bruins requesting comment from Neely was not returned. The current collective bargaining agreement expires Saturday at 11:59 PM ET. On Thursday, the 30 NHL owners voted unanimously that the players will be locked out if an agreement isn’t reached by then.
