Bill Daly: NHL expansion 'not in our plans'

Aug 27, 10:15 AM

Reports of NHL expansion ran rampant Tuesday evening, with a team in Las Vegas believed to be a "done deal" (see below) and as many as four teams being added by 2017.

Slam those brakes, says deputy commissioner Bill Daly.

"[Expansion] is not in our plans, there is absolutely nothing new in that," Daly told TVA Sports

Daly also addressed the idea of relocation, saying, "We have no move in sight, whether in the case of the [Florida] Panthers, or any other team."

Seattle, Toronto, Quebec City and Kansas City have been named as potential destinations for NHL expansion teams, but it appears as though the NHL will continue to deny such a move until, well, it doesn't.
