TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -The Tampa Bay Lightning may soon have some new owners who will bring a Hollywood feel to the NHL franchise.
Entertainment since 1999, announced Wednesday that it has been sold to OK Hockey LLC, a group controlled by Los Angeles TV and movie producer Oren Koules.
Koules was part of a group of bidders who tried to purchase the team last year, but the deal unraveled before it was approved by the NHL. The NHL still has to approve this deal, which is expected to be completed in 3 1/2 months.
