A new post on X has set the hockey world on fire and heated up the relocation rumors of the Winnipeg Jets. This post comes on the same day that commissioner Gary Bettman is in Winnipeg to discuss the team's future.

Bettman Travels To Winnipeg After Troubling Attendance Numbers

Late last week reports came out that the Winnipeg Jets would be receiving a visit from NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. Bettman is in town to discuss the troubling trend that is the Jets attendance numbers.
Chris Johnston on Insider Trading says NHL is monitoring the situation in Winnipeg, they have seen an above 30% drop in the last 3 years in their ticket base. Gary Bettman will be in Winnipeg on Tuesday to meet with some of the team's important corporate sponsors.

According to Johnston, the meeting is incredibly important as it will determine the future of the Jets franchise. With the Jets' potential relocation on the table one prospective owner of a future NHL team has thrown his hat in the ring.

Potential Future Franchise Owner Makes A Push To Bring A Team To Utah

The owner of the Utah Jazz Ryan Smith has been very open about his interest in a potential NHL team. Smith has put out his plan on social media and now has further pushed towards this goal as the Jets struggle to keep their franchise afloat.
Downtown Salt Lake City is the heart of Utah. Our efforts are not about an arena, it's about revitalizing a downtown that desperately needs investment. Imagine a downtown experience like this with the NBA / NHL at its core.

Smith seems to be using the discussion about the Jets as an opportunity to remind everyone in the hockey world he is interested in taking on a team. It sounds as though the NHL has a mutual interest with Smith and a team could land in Salt Lake City within the next few years.
