NHL News: Winnipeg sells over 13,000 seats in 4 days

According to various news outlets the Thrashers or now the Manitoba Moose over the last four days have sold upwards of 13,000 tickets to ticket holders of the Manitoba Moose AHL team as well as the general public. According to NHL.c0m over 7100 tickets went to the Manitoba Moose AHL team plan holders as well as corporate advertising clients. Today was the first day tickets were on sale for the public and over 5,800 tickets sold in just 4 minutes and were processed in 17 minutes.

They hope this will help the the move gain steam as the NHL board of governors will vote on June 21st weather or not to allow the Thrashers relocation to Winnipeg. I personally will be very surprised if the board of governors doesn't allow it.

Lastly, from what I understand there will be no division change this season with the Thrashers moving however in the 2012/2013 season we may see some changes with the divisions.
