WINNIPEG - Mark Chipman called Rick Dudley, Wednesday, the first step in what could be the hiring of Dudley as the GM of Winnipegs new NHL team.

We didnt get a chance to talk at length, Chipman, chairman of True North Sports and Entertainment, told the Winnipeg Sun. Were going to go meet with him. Well start that process (Thursday).

Dudley recently signed a four-year contract extension with the Atlanta Thrashers, and knows Chipman from their time in the old IHL.
