Billionaire William Foley is betting hockey will sell in Sin City.
Foley is in advanced talks with the NHL about bringing the first major league sports franchise to Las Vegas, The Post has learned.
“He’s the real deal,” a source said. “He has deep pockets.
His goal is to bring an NHL team to Vegas starting with the 2017-18 season, which would mark the league’s 100th anniversary.
If he succeeds, Foley will likely bring in others to run the team. He did not return calls seeking comment.
