Insiders Elliotte Friedman and Frank Seravalli Make Major Announcements on the Arizona Coyotes' Future



NHL Insider Elliotte Friedman has shared concerning news for the Coyotes, saying that the sale and relocation of the organization could happen soon.


Check out his full statement:

"I think that we are coming to the end of the line with this ownership group, I believe there isn't something hard and fast in place in the very near future. They will begin the process of selling the team or the NHL taking over the team and selling it to someone else, I believe we will get there. I believe one of the reasons you hear the commissioner say nothing negative about them is he knows this could end up in a big legal fight and he doesn't want to say or do anything that will end being used against him"



Also, Frank Seravalli reported that Suns owner Mat Ishbia has decided against to skip on the Coyotes. This diminishes the likelihood of the team remaining in Arizona unless a new local investor emerges to finance the team independently.

UPDATE: Told @Suns owner Mat Ishbia is not pursuing the #Yotes. Unless there is another mystery local businessperson interested in buying the team and privately funding it all, that crosses off one of the three options.


Given that Ryan Smith, the owner of the Utah Jazz, has shown a strong interest in getting the NHL to get a team to Salt Lake City, the relocation of the Coyotes would be a great option for everyone involved.

Official news are expected soon.

More to come.
