True North Sports & Entertainment will be conducting an online market research survey about a potential WHL team in the Winnipeg market starting today and running through Tuesday.
The purpose of the survey will be to gauge the potential interest in a Western Hockey League (WHL) franchise in Winnipeg, should an opportunity develop for this market.
The survey will be sent to a sample group of current and former MTS Centre and Winnipeg Jets customers. Only those that are sent an email will be asked to participate in the survey at this time. True North will continue to advise the media in the event there are further developments with respect to True North Sports & Entertainment and the Western Hockey League.
The WHL is one of three Major Junior leagues in Canada, with a few teams in the U.S, which are the top conduit of players to the NHL. The closest team is the Brandon Wheat Kings.
