Malloy Spokesman: NY Post Story “Not True”

By Jeff Cohen

The office of Governor Dannel Malloy is rejecting a report that says he has “formed a group to bring an NHL team to Hartford.”

The New York Post published the report on Sunday.

On Monday, Malloy spokesman Andrew Doba said this:

“As far as I know, it’s not true,” Doba said. “He’s been approached by people interested in moving it forward, but he has not formed a group.”

This comes as several groups have submitted bids to run the XL Center, the arena in Hartford where the Whalers once played. But Malloy hasn’t been optimistic about the prospect of the NHL coming back to Hartford, and the arena would need a major-league overhaul to make it work.
