TORONTO, June 5 /CNW/ -
Paul Pellegrini and Sussex Strategy Group Not Directly Involved in
Potential NHL Expansion Bid
In a media advisory issued on June 4, 2009, a partnership interested in
pursuing a National Hockey League (NHL) team implied that Mr. Paul Pellegrini
of Sussex Strategy Group would join the partnership to announce its interest
in pursuing a team.
The advisory was erroneous and inaccurate. Neither Mr. Pellegrini, the
partners in Sussex Strategy Group, nor any of its employees have ever been,
nor currently are, directly associated or affiliated with the interested
Mr. Pellegrini was approached by the partnership represented by Mr.
Lopez, to gauge Sussex Strategy's interest in providing strategic and
government relations counsel to the interested partnership in its pursuit of
an NHL team. Mr. Pellegrini indicated that his firm would be interested to
consider providing counsel upon the development of a viable bid. At no time
did Mr. Pellegrini or his firm commit to any direct association or affiliation
with the interested partnership.
Mr. Pellegrini will not be present at today's news conference.
