ATLANTA, GA (WKBW-TV) - TSN in Canada is reporting representatives in Atlanta and Winnipeg worked throughout the night
in workout an agreement in hopes of an announcement on the sale and planned relocation of the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg at some point today.
No official agreement is in place until parties sign off on the deal which includes True North, the Atlanta Spirit and the National Hockey League.
Lawyers on the Winnipeg side signed off on the deal Monday afternoon and now the Atlanta legal team is reviewing the agreement. Once they sign off on the deal, the sale will go through pending league approval.
If the NHL doesn't get a deal on the table, the league is expected to postpone any announcement and push it up to Thursday, the next available off day from the Stanley Cup Final.
Once an agreement has been reached, True North is expected to launch a season ticket drive.
