NHL team in Seattle (Updated Ownership Rumors)
Reading NBC's Pro Hockey Talk today over at PHT.
David Shoalts of The Globe and Mail reports that Don Levin — owner of the AHL’s Chicago Wolves — has expressed interest in an NHL franchise for Seattle.
Levin told Shoalts that if hedge-fund manager Chris Hansen is successful in building an arena in Seattle and bringing back an NBA team, he’d be willing to get involved on the NHL front.
Most people around the NHL and hockey circles things Levin is the BEST minor league hockey owner in North America.
“If he’s successful, I’d be very happy to be involved,” Levin said. “I told [Hansen] if he has something put together I would be interested.”
Are the cards starting to line up in Seattle?
A great Patriotic Ex-Seattleite and a Northwest sports "Hockey fan" Super ownership comboplatter? WOW
Lastly it should be noted PHT goes on to say that Levin isn’t the only potential owner in the mix.
He said there may be another interested party located in Bellevue, Wash.
i am keeping my fingers crossed!
Man I hope this happens so bad, once the NHL comes, the NBA will soon follow. This arena needs to be built. The city can still have their precious Key Arena for the roller Derby. Let the real sports fans get back I'm the game!!!
Oh that's awesome that someone already stepped forward, I knew it wouldn't take long.
Let's get the I-95 rivalry rolling.
