Thrashers Sold To Winnipeg, According To Report; Others Deny Report

After a week of speculation, there may soon be a resolution to the Atlanta Thrashers' relocation. According to the Globe and Mail, True North Sports and Entertainment will purchase the Thrashers and move the team to Winnipeg, Manitoba. Terms of the sale have not yet been announced

If true, an announcement is expected to come on Tuesday, when NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will be in Winnipeg to make the move official. The Thrashers will become the Manitoba Moose, currently the name of the AHL hockey team there.

However, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports that True North has said that the "deal is not done yet." Kevin Allen of USA Today is also reporting that no deal has been finalized yet, but says it still could be completed. Stay tuned.
