Minnesota Wild Will Pay Interest On Season Tickets During Lockout

With the NHL lockout officially underway, the Minnesota Wild are taking measures to ensure that they don't lose their fans. The Wild announced Monday that they will not only credit season ticket holders for the ticket value of missed games, they will also pay 10 percent interest on the value of the tickets. The Wild have extended the same offer to their fans who have purchased parking passes, reports Ben Goessling of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The Wild had a disappointing 2011-12 season, finishing with 81 points, fourth-worst in the Western Conference, and fan support had dwindled to 12,000 season ticket holders. However, ticket sales for the Wild picked up following the offseason acquisitions of free agents Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. Approximately 4,000 new season tickets had already been sold this summer in anticipation of seeing the new stars on the ice. The Wild were scheduled to begin selling single-game tickets on Sept. 22 before the lockout became official.
