(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Two rival hockey leagues have until next week to provide their proposals to Oklahoma City officials. The Central Hockey League and rival International Hockey League are being asked for their financial histories, marketing plans and details on each league's health. The C-H-L Blazers' lease with the city ends next spring.

The city council must decide by March whether the Double-A league stays in the city or whether they will be replaced by the Triple-A Kansas City Blades of the I-H-L. The proposals were requested last month in response to confusion over statements by each league as to which could best fill a 20-thousand seat arena that is under construction.
