Bettman: Seattle To Host NHL Draft, An All-Star Game 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Jan 10, 2019 7:36 am

On his first trip to Seattle since the city was granted the NHL\'s 32nd franchise, Commissioner Gary Bettman announced a couple more rewards for the future franchise\'s investment.

Bettman said the league has promised Seattle it will host All-Star weekend within its first seven seasons, with the team slated to begin play in 2021-22. Bettman also says Seattle will host the NHL draft, and that event will likely be awarded before the All-Star Game arrives.
