From the New York Post:
Billionaire William Foley is betting hockey will sell in Sin City .
Foley is in advanced talks with the NHL about bringing the first major league sports franchise to Las Vegas, The Post has learned.
“He’s the real deal,” a source said. “He has deep pockets.
His goal is to bring an NHL team to Vegas starting with the 2017-18 season, which would mark the league’s 100th anniversary.
That’s the first part of the story. The next part involves the Arizona Coyotes, whose ownership recently agreed to sell a controlling stake of the franchise to Andrew Barroway.
From the Post:
One scenario is for Foley to buy the money-losing Arizona Coyotes and move them to Las Vegas, a source said.
Barroway sees flipping the team as a good investment, the source added.
