Bettman added that a date has not been established, there have been preliminary talks about bringing the ASG and other league events to the LCA.
“We’re gonna wait until everything is up and running,” Bettman said. “I defintely see league events in the future and we’ve had preliminary discussions. We haven’t nailed down a date, but we want to make sure that everything, that the vision around the building and all the construction, that has to be done and completed so that everybody we bring to Detroit for the celebration will see the full experience and the full vision that Mike and Marian Ilitch have had for Detroit.”
