True North holds its fire

  • Print

THE Manitoba Moose and True North Sports and Entertainment released a statement Friday afternoon in response to reports Thursday that negotiations with Chicago sports mogul Jerry Reinsdorf to keep the Phoenix Coyotes in Glendale, Ariz., next season have hit a snag:

 

"While we understand the current situation with the hockey team in Glendale is an uncertain one, we will continue to respect the efforts of all parties involved to maintain the Coyotes in Arizona, including those of the National Hockey League. As we have stated many times in the past, if that situation changes, we are certainly open to reviewing the opportunity with the NHL.

"We would further point out that while Mr. David Thomson is an equity investor in True North Sports & Entertainment, he does not take an active role in the day-to-day operations of the company. Mr. Thomson is, however, aware of the situation involving the National Hockey League in Glendale and is very supportive of True North's efforts to return the NHL to Winnipeg, should the opportunity arise."
