AHL ticket holders snap up more than 4,000 NHL seats in Winnipeg, team says

WINNIPEG - The owners of Winnipeg's new NHL team say they have sold more than 4,000 season tickets in just over a day.

The as-yet unnamed team wants to sell 13,000 season tickets before the June 21 NHL board of governors meeting where the Atlanta Thrashers move to Winnipeg will be approved.

The count, which is updated each afternoon on the team's website, shows 4,170 have been sold.

Currently, only season ticket holders for the AHL Manitoba Moose are getting a chance to secure between four and eight seats each.

There are about 2,000 Moose fans who had season seats.

Tickets go on sale to everyone on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the MTS Centre, where the team will play, is getting a sneak peak at its NHL future, or make that the past.

"Keep Your Head Up Kid: The Don Cherry Story" is shooting a sequel and using the arena to recreate a 1979 NHL game between the Boston Bruins and Colorado Rockies, two teams Cherry coached.
