NHL commissioner rejects?Seattle for expansion team

•?NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says Seattle is not in the running to land an expansion team.

“If someone wanted to give us an application right now, we wouldn’t take it,” Bettman said Saturday at a news conference in Nashville, where the All-Star Game will be held Sunday.

Las Vegas and Quebec City have submitted expansion applications, but a decision whether to grant both, either or neither city an NHL franchise doesn’t seem imminent.

“The process is continuing,” Bettman said. “We’re not ready to make a recommendation.”
