I believe it was confirmed by Mark Chipman during the CBC post game coverage following the Jets home opener against the Canadiens in 2011. I will have to double-check if that is where it was mentioned but I do recall that Winnipeg was one of 5 locations that were invited to make a presentation to the league and I think Houston was one of the others that had been invited as well.
