Atlanta Thrashers Sold

Post by MehalickMotorsports14 » Fri May 20, 2011 10:16 pm

While it isn't official by NHL Standards, TSN has reported that the Atlanta Thrashers have been sold outright to True North Sports and Entertainment, owners of the AHL's Manitoba Moose in Winnipeg, Manitoba and the MTS Centre in downtown Winnipeg. Sale of the team was roughly $110 Million USD, with a relocation fee to be paid to the NHL of around $60 Million USD... So basically, if you were a Winnipeg Jets fan, you can rejoice! 15 long years and it's coming back! Good day for hockey :)

It's now official by the NHL, True North, and the common world, the Thrashers have been relocated to Winnipeg!
