The players on the Arizona Coyotes roster have been told that they'll be relocating to Salt Lake City in Utah, effective next season.


Emily Kaplan at ESPN.com:
Quote
Arizona Coyotes players were informed Friday that the team is relocating to Utah, sources told ESPN, confirming a report by PHNX Sports.

Coyotes general manager Bill Armstrong met with the players ahead of their game against the Edmonton Oilers to confirm what had been rumored all week: that the NHL is working to facilitate a sale to Ryan and Ashley Smith, owners of the Utah Jazz. The Coyotes will begin playing there next season.

The NHL and Smith's group have been working on a deal, but sources told ESPN on Friday night that nothing was done yet, and there was plenty of work to go before the deal was finalized.

An announcement is expected next week, at the conclusion of the NHL regular season, sources told ESPN.

The weirdest part of the deal is that the NHL will be basically laundering a franchise in order to facilitate the move:

"The NHL would purchase the Coyotes from Meruelo in a deal believed to be worth around $1 billion. This would mark the second time the NHL would have owned the Coyotes, buying the franchise from owner Jerry Moyes in 2009 after he filed for bankruptcy. The league owned and operated the Coyotes until 2013.

The league source said that after purchasing the team, the NHL would then sell the Coyotes to Smith at a price that could be as high as $1.3 billion -- much higher than the $650 million expansion fee that the Seattle Kraken's owners paid in 2021 to join the league. The source said the NHL's other 31 owners would split $300 million as part of the sale."

Bye Rangers!

Officially rooting for the Oilers as I really want to see Connor McDavid raise the cup. Long overdue and well deserved. Leon Draisaitl too.

Not a hockey fan but I agree. It's been a long time since the Stanley Cup belonged to a team from its homeland.

Actually, someone just pointed out on Facebook that if the Oilers win they will pass the Penguins for the most cups won by any 67 expansion team. May have to reconsider supporting the Oilers after all.

I agree, as the NHL stole the divisional round from the Bruins in order to grow the hockey market in one of the biggest sports cities in the nation.

I'm supporting Florida as I would like to see every team with the cup at least one time.

Boston over Toronto was the silliest meme series of this year. A totally unexpected outcome that nobody saw coming. Roll Eyes

Also rooting for the Oilers as Edmonton is a more genuine city than Miami, and you cannot play ice hockey outdoors in Miami. Of course now that I look it up the Panthers are ahead 2-0. Tired of the bad guys winning every time I tune into anything.

Florida coughed up a 3-0 series lead, as Edmonton rallied to win the next three games.

There will be a Game 7 on Monday to determine who wins it all. Will the Canadian-based team Stanley Cup drought end? Or will Florida recover to win? Find out Monday.
