NHL denying reports of team coming to Las Vegas
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Despite a report in a Canadian newspaper picked up by Sports Illustrated, the NHL is denying reports of an expansion team coming to Las Vegas or anywhere else.
The rumors involved expansion teams in Las Vegas, Toronto, Seattle and Quebec City.
They were fueled by MGM's recent groundbreaking on a 20,000 seat arena on the Las Vegas Strip.
Sources are quoting an NHL spokesman as saying expansion is not even on the Board of Governors agenda.
