Vegas, Quebec City seek NHL team

- — Helene Elliott

A group hoping to bring NHL hockey to Las Vegas and another group trying to bring the NHL back to Quebec City announced they had submitted formal expansion applicatio­ns to the league before Monday’s deadline. Quebecor, a Canadian communicat­ions company, and Black Knight Sports and Entertainm­ent LLC, a company led by businessma­n Bill Foley, each submitted a $ 10- million deposit, of which $ 2 million is nonrefunda­ble if the applicatio­n is not successful. A new arena was recently completed in Quebec City, which lost the Nordiques to Denver in 1995, and an arena is rising along the Las Vegas Strip, backed by AEG and MGM Resorts.
