The moment we’ve been waiting for may have just gotten it’s official time.
In a press release sent out to the media the NHL has confirmed Commissioner Gary Bettman will meet with the media at “approximately 1:00 PM” at the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.
The league did invite cameras to broadcast the event live.
The commissioner does hold a press conference in advance of the NHL Awards every year, but in the last State of the NHL presser he revealed they would have more information on expansion on the 22nd. This appears to be the press conference in which Las Vegas is finally awarded its first major professional sports franchise.
We have reached out to the organization to see if The Creator has been invited to this press conference but have yet to hear back at this time.
Start your timers people, it’s about to go down… Probably… At 1 PM on Wednesday.
