PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Chicago businessman Matthew Hulsizer got the chance to tell the NHL Board of Governors why he is the right one to buy the Phoenix Coyotes.
His presentation Monday was quite convincing.
"The executive committee met with Mr. Hulsizer and thought Matt did a great job," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said. "The executive committee is unanimous in support of his application for ownership."
The 40-year-old Hulsizer spoke to the committee on the first day of the board's two-day meeting. It gave the group the opportunity to get to know Hulsizer, a former player at Amherst College, and what qualities he would bring if he became the Coyotes' owner.
