Report: Iowa Chops settling debt with Ducks.

According to a report in the Des Moines Register, the Ducks will receive nearly $700,000 from the owners of the Iowa Chops, their former American Hockey League affiliate, if a sale of the franchise to the owner of the Dallas Stars is approved.

The Register reports that a partnership led by Tom Hicks is bidding for the defunct franchise, which served as the Ducks’ AHL affiliate during the 2008-09 season. The Ducks severed ties after the Chops failed to make scheduled payments as part of the affiliation agreement.

If approved, the proposal from Schlegel Sports to Polk (Iowa) County would include “payment of $613,884 to the Anaheim Ducks in money owed from a previous affiliation
agreement.”
