National Hockey League to accept expansion application from Seattle

Carolina Hurricanes could be sold as early as Thursday afternoon, owner says

The Vegas Golden Knights began operations this season and are in the playoff chase. It would also help teams like the Chicago Blackhawks ($66M), Los Angeles Kings ($66M), and Nashville Predators ($65M), who are already committed to at least $65 million in salary for next season, per CapFriendly.

The NHL was specific in pointing out that Seattle is likely an expansion team, not a relocation like some had speculated.

"We are thrilled that it is happening", said Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan in a news conference. "I have every confidence that that partnership will go very smoothly".

A Seattle team would be the league's 32nd franchise.

"Pete and I built a relationship", Dundon said after the meeting.

OVG CEO Tim Leiweke says his group will work to get a team to join the WNBA's Seattle Storm at KeyArena.

The city generated headlines lately because of its potential interest in luring an National Hockey League team, but Bettman said Houston was barely brought up during Thursday's session.

The technology would not require tracking chips on the players, instead relying upon camera-based technology, Commissioner Bettman said Friday at the conclusion of the two-day Board of Governors meetings. "If I wanted to be positive, I'd say one of the things we kept harping on is that we need another team in the West before we consider expanding in the East". The Knights have been a great boost for the league, as they've started the season better than any expansion team in NHL history, and are vying for the top spot in the Pacific Conference with the L.A Kings. It's clear that Bettman doesn't want to relocate this team - remember, the franchise is one of his Sun Belt babies, so it behooves him to make it work. "The rumours that it might be moving somewhere else are absolutely incorrect, made-up fabrications". "From everything I know viscerally, I think it will be a good market".

Bayonetta 2 coming to Nintendo Switch
The company confirms that PlatinumGames is now developing Bayonetta 3 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch . The good news is that the first two Bayonetta games are coming to Nintendo Switch next year.

"Wrong, wrong, wrong. The club is not going anywhere with Mr. Dundon's purchase". We've got to show that we're moving that around. "Right now, it's kind of in the hands of the public authorities in NY as to whether they're granted an RFP for the Belmont Project", Daly said. "I think the geographic rivalry with Vancouver as potential will be nice".

"Evaluating the market, the arena, the ownership, the impact on the league is something that we'll go through", said Bettman.

The sale of the Carolina Hurricanes could be announced as early as this afternoon.

Nevertheless, a reliable hockey source from Central Canada, who has asked to remain anonymous, says Seattle was never really in the running as an option for the Calgary Flames.
