The prospective new owners of the Atlanta Trashers have called a news conference for noon ET to announce that the team will be moving to Winnipeg, the former home of the Phoenix Coyotes. NHL Network and NHL.com will carry the announcement across North America. TSN will have the newser in Canada.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman will be on hand for the press conference and will announce that True North will be the new owners of the team and MTS Centre will be the home. It’s not known what the team will be called, but I do like the old name of the Jets. We’ll see if the NHL allows this.
Again, the press conference announcing the Atlanta Thrashers move to Winnipeg will be carried live at noon Eastern time on NHL Network, NHL.com and TSN.
