EDMONTON- Edmonton Oil Kings fans who attended Tuesday night’s game at Rexall Place are being offered a ticket for a future game.

Due to a power outage in northeast Edmonton Tuesday night, the game against the Prince Albert Raiders was delayed for nearly two hours.

As a way to say thank you, the Oil Kings are offering anyone with a ticket to Tuesday’s game a ticket to one of the Oil Kings’ home games in October or November.

“We’d like to thank our fans for their patience throughout the power outage Tuesday night, especially for the great many of them who stayed for the completion of the game after it restarted,” said Oil Kings vice-president Darryl Porter. “They proved, once again, that without a doubt, Edmonton has the best fans in the WHL.

“We understand not everyone could stay, especially families with kids, and we want to ensure those customers still get the great fan experience they expect from the Edmonton Oil Kings.”
