Newfoundland may get a new kind of Moose

Hey there, time traveller!

Winnipeg’s American Hockey League franchise has found a new home on The Rock.

The St. John’s Telegram is reporting that Danny Williams has reached a tentative agreement with True North Sports and Entertainment that will see Winnipeg’s AHL affiliate set up shop in Newfoundland for the upcoming 2011-12 season.

The newspaper is reporting St. John’s Sports and Entertainment is in meetings to approve an agreement in principle for a lease at Mile One Centre and that a press conference may be called for later this evening.
St. John’s last played host to an AHL team in 2004-05, the last year for the St. John’s Maple Leafs.
