Peter Karmanos, owner of the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes, and OHL’s Plymouth Whalers reportedly stated he is targeting Chatham, Ontario as the relocation destination for his OHL Whalers.

Senior NHL Writer for ESPN The Magazine Craig Custance Tweeted today, “Spoke with Peter Karmanos who said he’s targeting small Canadian city for relocation of Plymouth Whalers: “Hopefully, Chatham.”

This coming after weeks of speculation of renewed talks with OHL teams in Chatham.
