  • NHL Agrees to Consider Seattle Expansion Proposal

On Friday, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman shared a salary cap projection during a board of governors meeting held in Manalapan, Florida.

Bettman said the franchise fee to move a time to Seattle is set at $650 million Dollars.

"We've agreed as a league to take and consider an expansion application, and to let them run in the next few months, a season-ticket drive", Bettman said.

The 2017-18 season welcomed the NHL's 31st franchise, the Vegas Golden Knights, at a $500 million expansion fee.

Dundon's involvement will likely renew speculation that the beleaguered franchise could be relocated to Houston, with the recently sold Toyota Center - home of the NBA's Houston Rockets - floated as a potential new home.

Commissioner Bettman said he had no expectation for how long it would take for the Seattle group to submit its application and that even after it does, the National Hockey League has to go through a vetting process similar to what it did with Vegas.

The White House has not yet given an official response, although in the past, Trump dismissed a diplomatic solution with North Korea.

"We are thrilled that it is happening", said Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan in a news conference.

However, TSN reported that, as part of the purchase deal, Dundon has agreed to not apply for relocation for a period of seven years. "Our plan is just to look at Seattle at this point".

Karmanos has owned the team since 1994 when it was the Hartford Whalers and moved the franchise to North Carolina in 1997. 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. David Backes scored his first two goals of the season, helping the host Bruins beat the Coyotes 6-1.

"We learned that we can get the technology to work but we needed it to work better so that it could be scalable", Commissioner Bettman said. "And so I don't view [the Coyotes] right now as a candidate for moving".

The league also has been eyeing Seattle as a solution to address the 16-to-15 team imbalance between its Eastern and Western conferences. On Thursday, Bettman and the NHL Board of Governors gave Seattle the green light to start the application process. We'll be working together closely.
