September 26, 1997|Associated Press

Even with the retirement of high-priced Mario Lemieux, the Pittsburgh Penguins will have the highest priced average ticket in the NHL this season at $56.28.

The financially troubled Edmonton Oilers, on the other hand, will have the lowest at $25.20.

The NHL's average ticket price will be $40.78, the first time any major sports league has eclipsed the $40 mark.

The figures were among those released Thursday by Team Marketing Report, a Chicago--based survey group.

Among other teams, the Kings had the greatest average ticket price decline of 12.9 per cent, dropping to $35.30.
