TORONTO -- The NHL's Board of Governors will not conduct a vote on expansion when they convene for two days of meetings next month in Pebble Beach, Calif., Commissioner Gary Bettman said Monday from the PrimeTime Sports Management Conference and Trade Show.

The NHL is currently considering applications for expansion from potential ownership groups in Las Vegas and Quebec City. Those groups presented proposals to the executive committee of the Board of Governors in September.

The Board of Governors will meet Dec. 7-8. The executive committee is scheduled to discuss the proposals in detail Dec. 7.

Bettman: Decision on 2018 Olympics on horizon

TORONTO -- A decision on the participation of the NHL and its players in the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics could come within the year, Commissioner Gary Bettman said Monday from the PrimeTime Sports Management Conference and Trade Show.

Commissioner Bettman added the League has to weigh the potential benefits of also committing to the 2022 Beijing Olympics into its decision on the 2018 Olympics because of the potential windfall of marketing and growth the game and League could experience in China.

"The question is would the fact that the Winter Olympics in Beijing introduce that country to hockey and give us an opportunity to make a real impression in China, where hockey is really in an embryonic state?" Commissioner Bettman said. "That's a discussion we have to have to determine whether or not there is an opportunity to grow the game in China by using the Winter Games with NHL players as a catalyst. That's the question. I don't know the answer."
