The Calgary Flames, on the ice, have had their ups and down.

But at the Scotiabank Saddledome ticket office, they are determined to hold steady.

The Flames, as it turns out, are not raising season-ticket prices for next season — or for this spring's playoffs.

Renewal forms, sent out recently to the faithful, showed no increase in rates.

"Yeah, I'm a little surprised," one ticket-holder said, "but considering the quality of the product on the ice, I think there would have been a significant backlash if they had raised them."

Flames president Ken King, reached Monday night, acknowledged the freeze.
