Well it’s official, the NHL will return to Winnipeg this fall. True North has called a press conference for 11 am ct today to make the announcement. True North had signed off on the deal yesterday and was waiting for the Atlanta Spirit Group lawyers to do the due diligence.
True North will announce at the press conference that season tickets will go on sale immediately following the announcement. The team will also compete in the Eastern Conference’s South Eastern division this year before the NHL realigns next year. At which time the Winnipeg-based franchise will shift to the West.
Details will continue to come out today so we are literally a couple hours away from knowing if the Winnipeg Jets are returning or if the Manitoba Moose move from the AHL to the NHL. Stay tuned.
