Stephen Brunt of the Globe and Mail, and now a report has been put up on NHL.com confirming that the NHL is returning to Winnipeg!
The Atlanta Thrashers have been (or shortly will be) sold to True North Sports and Entertainment. I expect a announcement as early as tomorrow but most likely Tuesday after the long weekend.
Congratulations Winnipeg. The party is currently starting on Portage and Main!
Also take a moment to reflect on the feelings of the true Thrashers fans in Atlanta who are having their team ripped from them. It’s too bad there just weren’t enough of them.
Have a good one Winnipeg!
