Man Behind The KHL Interested In Purchasing An NHL Team

from Alan Adams at CBC Sports,

Russian billionaire Alexander Medvedev, who has been a thorn in the side of the NHL this season, claims he is looking at buying an NHL team.

“Actually, we have considered 10 opportunities and we’re doing due diligence on three teams,” Medvedev told reporters Tuesday following an oldtimers’ game at the world men’s hockey championship in Zurich, Switzerland.

“It will help us make our decisions.”

Medvedev, who is deputy chairman of Gasprom, the world’s biggest natural gas producer, would not say which teams he is looking at, but hinted he thinks the NHL should put more teams in Canada.
