Of all the sales pitches Quebec City and Las Vegas have made in attempting to woo NHL hockey to their respective markets, the ones they make Tuesday stand to be their most important to date.

According to NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly, representatives for both parties will be on hand to pitch their cases to the NHL’s executive committee prior to Sept. 29 Board of Governors meetings in New York.

While a final decision on potential expansion will not be rubber-stamped this time around, don’t be surprised if an announcement comes as early as the league’s BOG meetings in Pebble Beach in December.

“The (expansion) process is going well,” Daly said in a phone interview Friday. “All of the intial submissions of the three phases of the application process have been completed. We’re in the process of the evaluation of those submissions now.
