SEA ISLAND, Ga | NHL Board of Governors to vote on Seattle expansion
SEA ISLAND, Ga — Seattle is one step away from landing an NHL franchise.
Team and city executives have already secured more than 30,000 season-ticket deposits, got an arena plan passed through local government and wowed the executive committee of owners. It all pays off Tuesday when the NHL Board of Governors is expected to approve Seattle as the home of the league’s 32nd franchise.
“Seattle’s one of the fastest-growing cities in the country,” Commissioner Gary Bettman said recently.
