Atlanta Thrashers Move Announcement Not Yet Scheduled, True North PR Tells Matt Pearl

Earlier Monday, Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos reported a Tuesday morning announcement of the Atlanta Thrashers' Winnipeg move had been planned "barring any last minute changes." According to WXIA's Matt Pearl, such an announcement has not yet been scheduled. Pearl cites True North PR, which hasn't been the most expressive in its commentary on the ongoing sale, not that it should be.

It's also worth noting, as Pearl points out, that this wouldn't necessarily rule out an announcement being made Tuesday, as PR wouldn't yet need to be aware of such a scheduled event.

Expect this back-and-forth to continue until True North itself officially and publicly announces the relocation.
