Sources: NHL Expansion Team In Las Vegas Is "A Done Deal"

Sources said that NHL expansion to Las Vegas is "a done deal, the only thing to be determined being which owner" will be awarded the "first major league sports franchise" in the city. Given how "dead set against a team in the gambling haven" NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman was 10 years ago, "this move into another player friendly state-tax-free zone represents a considerable about-face" (Vancouver PROVINCE, 8/27).

SportsBusinessNews.com's Howard Bloom wrote on his Twitter feed, "NHL expansion – four teams added by 2017, Quebec City, Toronto, Seattle, and Las Vegas $1.4b in expansion fees" (TWITTER.com, 8/26).
