Predators Deal Approved

From TSN,

The National Hockey League’s Board of Governors have approved the sale of the Nashville Predators to a local group headed by David Freeman.

The Freeman group is expected to close on the sale within the next few days.

The group came together to make an offer to owner Craig Leipold after he originally announced a deal to sell his team in May to Canadian billionaire Jim Balsillie for $220 million. Balsillie’s deal fell through in June when he started taking season-ticket deposits in Hamilton.

Marketing plan by the new ownership group noted earlier today on KK.
