Today a former NHL forward and current analyst announced he is part of a bid to bring the NHL back to Atlanta.

Former NHLer Leads A Bid To Bring A Team Back To Atlanta

A report put out by insider Elliotte Friedman has said that former NHLer and current analyst Anson Carter is part of a group pushing to bring a hockey team to Atlanta. Carter and Alpharetta Sports & Entertainment Group have a plan together.
We have a new entrant revealing its desire for NHL expansion. Broadcaster Anson Carter, who scored 202 goals in 674 NHL games, unveils Alpharetta Sports & Entertainment Group — wishing to bring a team back to Atlanta. Details here:

Carter is not just a former pro hockey player but also a native of Atlanta since 2009. This will give him a leg up when negotiating with the NHL about bringing a new team. Carter and the Alpharetta Sports & Entertainment Group will need all the advantages they can get. Two failed attempts at bringing a team to Atlanta likely have the NHL skeptical of its success this time around.
It sounds as though any potential bid is still far away from leading to a new team in the NHL. As this situation further develops we will update the latest details.
