True North Sports & Entertainment have announced that sales reached 13,000 in only 17 minutes this afternoon, followed by the waiting list being capped at 8,000 only a couple hours later.
The announcement surely solidifies the buzz that has been gripping Winnipeg and the province alike over the last week. It is expected that the NHL will now rubber-stamp the purchase and relocation of the new Winnipeg franchise on June 21st.
True North Sports & Entertainment has been a major supporter of Hockey Manitoba in growing our game over the years and we look forward to many more. Hockey Manitoba congratulates True North Sports & Entertainment for their special achievement and wish them the very best in their new quest for a Stanley Cup.
