Arizona Coyotes send out message about their possible relocation

Published February 4, 2024 at 9:42
During All Star Weekend, the Arizona Coyotes faced a lot of criticism from NHLPA Head Marty Walsh. Walsh had called out the franchise for missing two important deadlines to have secured a new local arena. Walsh also aired some serious concerns about the current facility and the challenges players were facing at the College Arena.

While the NHLPA spoke out against the team, Commissioner Gary Bettman reaffirmed he felt that Coyotes' ownership would keep their word and secure a new location. Through all of this Coyotes' Ownership has remained quiet.

A local reporter, Taylor Rocha, shared the following news on Friday.

REPORT: The Arizona Coyotes are moving forward with a plan to buy state trust land in north Phoenix.

Multiple arena sites are still being considered, a team source confirmed with @abc15.

So where were the Coyotes in all of this? Friday night the team issued a statement via X on the matter.

Confirmed. We have every intention of staying in the desert. We owe it to the best fans in the world to make it happen. #YotesForever

Despite missing every deadline given to them it still appears that the Coyotes are hoping to remain in Arizona, but with nothing official at this time, what choice does the league have but to pull the plug? Despite what the Social Media Manager for the team might think, time may be running out.
