Drop the puck! NHL team jetting back to Winnipeg from Atlanta
WINNIPEG -- Canada is getting a seventh NHL team.
True North Sports and Entertainment says an agreement has been finalized that will see the Atlanta Thrashers move to Winnipeg.
The move still needs to be approved the league's board of governors.
The Manitoba capital has been without NHL hockey since the Jets moved to Phoenix in 1996.
Atlanta is saying goodbye to an NHL franchise for the second time.
The Flames moved from Atlanta to Calgary in 1980.
