So it’s official now with Michigan’s Board of Regents giving its final approval. At $3 million, it’s a bargain for the NHL. And it’s a dream come true I’ve talking about for years.
It will be the hottest ticket imaginable for an NHL game. Not only because is it huge here, but it will pull in countless people from Canada. We are a border state, and an Original Six town. Nothing could celebrate that more than this.
