FLINT, Mich. (AP) - The Ontario Hockey League has approved plans to sell the Plymouth Whalers and move the team to Flint.

The Flint Journal reports (https://bit.ly/18HNr54 ) the OHL’s Board of Governors on Monday in Toronto approved the sale to IMS Hockey Corp. for play at Flint’s Perani Arena during the 2015-16 season. Costa Papista, president of IMS USA Inc., which last year purchased Perani Arena, confirmed the decision to the newspaper.

Details of the planned sale by Peter Karmanos Jr. were announced last month at Compuware Arena, where the Whalers currently play.

Terms of the agreement weren’t released. Karmanos, who co-founded software development company Compuware, owns the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes.
