Selinger declined to give specifics and advised fans not to "jump the gun," but said he was "totally excited" about bringing the NHL back to the city.
A rumoured press conference to announce the return of the NHL to Winnipeg could be a go, Premier Greg Selinger hinted on Friday.

"I think Tuesday could be an interesting day," Selinger said, after a press conference to thank the military for their flood-fighting efforts.

The Globe and Mail reported Thursday that the deal for True North Sports and Entertainment to buy the Atlanta Thrashers was done and waiting for a public announcement — which could see Selinger standing next to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman early next week.

But like TNSE, which has denied the Globe and Mail report, Selinger played coy on the details of a rumoured deal. "Let's make sure we've got the ink dry," he said. "Let's see what happens on Tuesday."
