LAVAL, Quebec (AP) -The sale of the Montreal Canadiens to a group led by the Molson family is going ahead.

The announcement was made jointly by team owner George Gillett and Geoff Molson at the Canadiens annual charity golf tournament on Thursday.

The Molson brothers say the structure of the new ownership group has been finalized. The deal could be done in the next few weeks, subject to final approval by the NHL.

Pierre Boivin is staying on as team president.
