BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has confirmed that the Board of Governors had no objection to billionaire businessman William Foley exploring the level of interest in an expansion team coming to Las Vegas.

Bettman was adamant that nothing more should be read into the league’s consideration of Foley’s request in terms of any advancement in expansion discussions. He explained that the interest from Foley and Las Vegas raised questions about the viability of that market being able to support a team, which is why Foley wants to conduct a season ticket drive and see what kind of numbers are achieved.
