Announcement Expected Soon on Winter Hawks Investigation
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A big announcement about the future of the Portland Winter Hawks could come today. The Western Hockey League is scheduled to release their findings about the team's future, after allegations that the Winter Hawks had failed to pay their bills on time and did not give adequate care to injured players. The team's owners have denied those claims. The league began an investigation in February, and the matter was discussed this week among the league's board of governors during a meeting in Calgary, Alberta.
