NBC’s Dan Patrick: NHL to Vegas by 2016

42 Comments

Dan Patrick believes the NHL will be in Las Vegas by 2016.

Patrick’s comments are in addition to a story which appeared in the Vancouver Province on Tuesday.

Speaking on his radio show, the Football Night in America host says the Arizona Coyotes or Carolina Hurricanes could relocate. Patrick added that Vegas and Seattle could also be targets for expansion franchises should relocation not occur.

Patrick’s comments come despite the league saying Wednesday that there is nothing imminent on the expansion front.

So if there’s nothing new on the expansion front, perhaps Patrick is onto something in terms of relocation? Only time will tell.
