Gary Bettman Makes Announcement About The Relocation of The Coyotes

The hockey world was set on fire following last night’s announcement that the Coyotes arena proposals had been rejected.

The NHL commissioner, Gary Bettman, is among those most involved in trying to contain the repercussions.

Since he was appointed NHL commissioner thirty years ago, Bettmans has devoted most of his time to the Coyotes. So much so that Bettman decided to bail out the Coyotes rather than the Atlanta Thrashers, a decision that now seems to have been a mistake.

Last night, Bettman issued a statement regarding the Coyotes’ future:

Exploring options implies that the Coyotes currently have little stability and are looking to relocate. Given that the Coyotes have so far failed to make a name for themselves in Phoenix, Glendale, and now Tempe, it is improbable that this transfer is taking place in Arizona.

Houston, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, Kansas City, Quebec City, and Halifax are just a few of the top cities.

It will hopefully be a better future than the one in Arizona, wherever the NHL decides to move the Coyotes.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
