BUFFALO, N.Y (WIVB) - As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, the National Hockey League announced a work stoppage applicable to all NHL clubs, including the Buffalo Sabres.
If the work stoppage progresses to a point where games are cancelled by the NHL, the Sabres will offer the following options to our season ticket holders and mini pack holders who have purchased tickets for the 2012-13 season:
Option 1: At the end of each month, the Sabres will refund any games that are cancelled by the NHL.
For example, on Oct. 1, the Sabres will refund all preseason games that were cancelled by the NHL in the month of September. The refund process will be communicated to our season ticket holders and mini pack ticket holders (via email and/or mail) if and when games have been cancelled by the NHL.
Option 2: The Sabres will offer season ticket holders and mini pack ticket holders 4% simple interest per annum on the value of the games that are cancelled by the NHL.
Ticket holders will be able to choose which option they would prefer.
A comprehensive information guide regarding the NHL work stoppage and the Sabres' ticket refund policy is available at Sabres.com and will be communicated to all ticket-holders through email and mail.
