Nebraska, USHL Hockey Rivals Create Good Life Cup
OMAHA, Neb. - The Omaha Lancers, in conjunction with the Lincoln Stars, Tri-City Storm and the United States Hockey League (USHL), are pleased to announce the creation of the Good Life Cup, a traveling trophy awarded to the franchise with the highest winning percentage in games between the three Nebraska teams. In addition to determining Nebraska's top USHL team, the Good Life Cup is meant to generate additional fan excitement and honor the longtime hockey rivalries that exist among the Lancers, Stars and Storm.
"The Good Life Cup is a great way to promote hockey in Nebraska," said Dan Fremuth, Omaha's Vice President of Business Operations. "The Lancers, Stars and Storm have rich hockey traditions and incredibly loyal and passionate fan bases. The Good Life Cup should only intensify these already tremendous rivalries."
The Good Life Cup winner will be the team with the highest winning percentage in games played against in-state competition. The USHL's Western Conference standings are not a factor in deciding the winner, as separate standings will track head-to-head games between Omaha, Lincoln and Tri-City.
A traveling trophy - designed with input from all three teams - will be awarded to Nebraska's top USHL team and stay with that organization until the end of the following season. The inaugural Good Life Cup will be displayed at each team's rink at different times throughout the upcoming 2012-2013 season.
Season tickets for the 2012-2013 season of Omaha Lancers hockey are currently on sale! For more information, contact the Lancers front office at 402-344-7825, ext. 3 or visit www.lancers.com .
