NHL News: Hartford Connecticut Trying To Draw A Team Back To Area


Former Hartford Whalers hockey team owner Howard Baldwin is trying to get an NHL team back to Hartford, Conn.

A news conference has been scheduled for Wednesday to detail plans for the rink and various events designed to show Hartford is a hockey town.

The Whalers left Connecticut in 1997 for Raleigh, N.C., and became the Carolina Hurricanes. Hartford is one of several cities hoping to lure NHL teams.
