After the game was delayed 90 minutes Tuesday night due to a blackout that affected Rexall Place, the Edmonton Oil Kings are hoping to make it up to fans.

Anyone with a ticket to that game will be able to redeem it for any future Oil Kings game in October or November, the team announced on Wednesday. 

"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 in a news release.

"They proved once again that, without a doubt, Edmonton has the best fans in the WHL."

Fans can redeem their tickets by visiting the Oil Kings Ticket Office located at TELUS Field during regular business hours or by calling 780-414-GOAL (4625).
