RIVERSIDE, Calif. - A former owner of the Edmonton Oilers who pleaded guilty to one count of perjury won't learn his fate until later this year at the earliest.

Peter Pocklington was originally scheduled to be sentenced today in a California courtroom for lying during his bankruptcy proceedings.

But a spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office says the matter has been taken off the court calendar and is expected back in front of a judge at some point later this year.

Both sides have requested an adjournment until Nov. 15 in the case.

The plea deal called for Pocklington to serve probation and six months of home detention with electronic monitoring.

As well, the 68 year old will be forced to make full restitution after working with the Internal Revenue Service to determine his income tax liability between 2006 and 2008.
