Selon @GeorgesLaraque au @919sport : la @NHLPA aurait été informé que Vegas aura une équipe d’expansion, Québec… Pas pour le moment. #LNH

In English that says, “According to @GeorgesLaraque on @919sport: the @NHLPA was informed that Vegas will be an expansion team, Québec… Not for the moment. #NHL”
There’s not much more too the report at the moment, so we are basically just going off the word of former NHL player Georges Laraque, but this amazing news on a Monday morning.
The NHL has released this statement effectively denying the report.
It’s important to remember this is all stemming from an unnamed source of a radio host.
Here’s the original tweet from @919sport.
“NHLPA has been informed that Quebec City is excluded from the NHL expansion” – @GeorgesLaraque#919sport#lnh#ch#habs#hockey#nhl
