Ads on the boards

Can someone tell me about which year did the boards get decorated with advertisements? Thank you.

I think they started sometime around the mid 80's.

I know the Spectrum did NOT have advertising along the boards during the 1986-87 season. It had to be very shotrly thereafter.

I remember the idea came from the Canada Cup Tournament. As a way to raise revenue. There was a Canada Cup in 1987, so I would imagine it started just about then

Boston wasn't the first to do it but they had none prior to 1987.
