KC future home to Edmonton AHL affiliate?

A writer who covers the AHL for the Peoria Journal-Star says the AHL and the Edmonton Oilers are looking at KC as a possible home to an AHL team.


NHL Edmonton's search for a farm club has turned toward Kansas City, say league sources, as the Oilers protracted talks with Quad Cities seem to be losing momentum.

Since it looks as if no NHL teams will be relocating and that at least two NBA teams (Portland and Seattle) might be moving, then there is probably some legitimacy to this.

I could see the Kansas City Sonics (NBA) and Kansas City Oilers (AHL) playing in the Sprint Center.

I, of course, wouldn't spend a dime on NBA games and most likely purchase season ticket to the AHL. Regardless, I think this would be a good combo, along with the Brigade, for AEG and the Sprint Center.
