NHL TO SEND OFFICIAL TO WINNIPEG ON FACT-FINDING MISSION
Published April 12, 1995
NHL Senior VP & General Counsel Jeff Pash will visit Winnipeg tomorrow on a "fact finding mission," according to today's WINNIPEG FREE PRESS. Pash will reportedly meet with the mayor, some members of Manitoba Emtertainment Complex (MEC), the group trying to keep the Jets in Winnipeg, and Jets Owner Barry Shenkarow. The MEC has a May 1 deadline to put a deposit down to purchase the team. NHL VP of Public Relations Arthur Pincus: "A lot of people might think the NHL doesn't care about Winnipeg, but I can tell you that the league cares very much about the Winnipeg Jets. If the league didn't care, why would we put somebody on a plane at this point?" (Don Campbell, WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, 4/12).
