NHL agrees to accept expansion team application from Seattle
Bettman also said that Seattle is the only place being considered for an expansion team at this time. The expansion fee will be $650 million.
The league's Board of Governors agreed to consider an expansion application from Seattle during their annual meeting in Florida on Thursday.
The group includes Jerry Bruckheimer, a Hollywood producer, and David Bonderman, a private equity CEO.
The announcement comes the same week the City Council approved and Mayor Jenny Durkan signed a $600 million agreement with the Los Angeles-based Oak View Group to renovate KeyArena.
What Bettman is asking of Seattle isn't all that different of the Vegas Golden Knights, who are now in their inaugural season and are in second place in the Pacific Division. "We have agreed as a league to take and consider an expansion application and to let them run in the next few months a season-ticket drive".
