Hur­ri­canes for sale?

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

Carolina Hur­ri­canes owner Peter Kar­manos Jr. is con­sid­er­ing sell­ing the NHL team. Hur­ri­canes spokesman Mike Sund­heim said in a state­ment that Kar­manos is de­cid­ing whether to ac­cept an of­fer for the fran­chise or re­main the owner, but he de­clined to say who made the of­fer. The of­fer could have come from for­mer Texas Rangers CEO Chuck Green­berg. Bloomberg News and WRAL-TV, the NBC af­fil­i­ate in Raleigh, N.C., re­ported that Green­berg is close to pur­chas­ing the team and will not move the Hur­ri­canes. Bloomberg re­ported the sale price at roughly $500 mil­lion. Kar­manos bought the Hart­ford Whalers fran­chise in 1994 and moved it to North Carolina three years later. He has been pub­licly seek­ing a lo­cal buyer for the team for at least three years.
