Whatever happened to the rebirth of the defunct World Hockey Association, which was supposed to satisfy fans' thirst for hockey during the lockout? League co-owner Nick Vaccaro told the Canadian Press that rumors that his league won't resurface are premature.
"Regardless of what's been said or not said, the facts are we're in discussions right now with a group of people who are looking to acquire our rights so they can operate possibly as a single entity this year," Vaccaro said. "It would basically be the transfer of the WHA trademark rights. It would be a completely new identity that would move forward."
