An NHL franchise in Las Vegas?

With the Anaheim Ducks one win away from hoisting the Stanley Cup, the SportsBusiness Journal reports that the NHL "has been in discussions" with film-TV producer Jerry Bruckheimer ("Pirates of the Caribbean") about owning an expansion franchise in Las Vegas. According to SBJ reporters Liz Mullen and Don Muret, Bruckheimer has spoken with Anschutz Entertainment Group about "potentially building and/or operating an NHL arena" in downtown Vegas. SBJ also reports that, if the NHL decides to expand to 32 teams, the other new franchise would be located in Kansas City, where AEG has developed the city-owned Sprint Center.
