The Los Angeles Kings' Matt Greene (No. 2) and Anze Kopitar (No. 11) celebrate after scoring past St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliott, left, and David Backes (No. 42) in Game 1 last Saturday in St. Louis.

ST. LOUIS — The sale of the NHL's St. Louis Blues appears imminent.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the sale of the team to a group led by St. Louis-area businessman Tom Stillman could close on Wednesday, with a news conference announcing the sale as early as Thursday.

The Post-Dispatch says Hall of Famer Brett Hull is expected to be named to a management position.

Stillman is CEO of a distributing company and has been minority owner since 2007. He heads a list of local investors who will pay about $130 million for the Blues, their minor league team in Peoria, Ill., and an interest in the Peabody Opera House.
