Wednesday, August 14th, 2019

The National Women's Hockey League is close to resuming use of the Buffalo Beauts logos and marketing material after reaching a tentative agreement of its lawsuit against the team's former owners. Documents filed in federal court Aug. 5 show the league and Pegula Sports and Entertainment have a tentative settlement in place and are ''finalizing a written settlement.''

Attorney Ben Natter, who represents the league, confirmed to The Associated Press the parties are in settlement negotiations and ''we believe the dispute will be resolved shortly.'' A PSE spokesman on Wednesday declined comment except to refer to court documents.
