National Hockey League to accept $650million Seattle expansion application

National Hockey League to accept $650million Seattle expansion application

The Seattle City Council on Monday approved a memorandum of understanding with Los Angeles-based Oak View Group in a $600 million privately financed project to renovate the facility, formerly the home of the NBA's SuperSonics.

The NHL has officially allowed the city of Seattle to submit an application for an NHL expansion team, according to league commissioner Gary Bettman. The expansion team in Seattle will cost $650 million, while Vegas was $500 million.

The renovations are expected to be finished by 2020, putting a benchmark on the approximate date for when we could see a hockey team in Seattle.

Bettman says he doesn't know where this leaves Quebec City other than to say right now they're only looking at Seattle for possible expansion. "We will let them make a case and if they also want to try to do a study for selling season tickets, they can", Bettman said. "I think we'll meet the benchmarks we need to meet and in the mean time we'll be negotiating the side agreements, doing the environmental work and moving forward so we can open when the National Hockey League wants to come".

Dying Light is getting a 'battle royale' multiplayer expansion called Bad Blood
Players can sign up to be one of the beta testers on the PC by signing in with their Techland account on the Dying Light site. Be careful though, those same allies might turn on you to get more blood samples of their own, ensuring they have a way out.

OVG CEO Tim Leiweke says his group will work to get a team to join the WNBA's Seattle Storm at KeyArena.

Although Seattle has never had an NHL team, the Seattle Metropolitans, who played in the Pacific Coast Hockey Association from 1915-24, won the Stanley Cup in 1917, defeating the Montreal Canadiens 3-1 in a best-of-5 series, the NHL said.

When the sale is finalized and the league has approved the deal, Dundon would take control of all team operations.
