Once again, Buffalo Sabres minority owner Larry Quinn is denying reports a letter of intent was signed to sell his NHL team to Pennsylvania billionaire Terrence Pegula.

Quinn said Tuesday that contrary to a report in The Buffalo News, Pegula has not signed such a document to purchase the NHL team from majority owner Tom Golisano. He also refuted a television report that said Golisano would announce the sale when the world junior hockey championship wraps up here next week.

Golisano will be in California at that time, Quinn said.
