Auburn Hills mentioned as possible site for Whalers

April 18, 1996|By SPORTSTICKER

The Palace of Auburn Hills reportedly is under consideration if the Hartford Whalers relocate.

The New York Times reported yesterday that Whalers owner Peter Karmanos has talked with the arena's owners about sharing the home of the NBA's Detroit Pistons.

Karmanos, a Detroit native who operates a junior hockey league team there, has said he would move the Whalers if 11,000 season tickets are not sold by May 1.

The NHL would be expected to oppose the move because the Detroit Red Wings play less than an hour south of Auburn Hills.
