All six NWHL teams are now privately owned.
The NWHL announced Monday morning that the Minnesota Whitecaps and Buffalo Beauts have been sold to two of the league’s Board of Governors.
NLTT Ventures, LLC, led by Andy Scurto and Neil Leibman, purchased the final two teams under the Women’s Hockey Partners umbrella. All six teams are now independently owned.
While the ownership group currently holds the two teams, they won’t be able to forever. Per the release, owners will be required to divest from clubs until they only hold a stake in one team. It’s unclear what the timetable for that will be.
Scurto will serve as Governor for the Beauts while Leibman will hold the position for the Whitecaps.
