Arizona Coyotes

The Arizona Coyotes are a hockey team based in Phoenix, Arizona. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). The Coyotes started in the NHL as the Winnipeg Jets and were moved to the city in 1996. After the move, they were known as the Phoenix Coyotes until June 27, 2014.

The Coyotes play at the Gila River Arena (previously the Jobing.com Arena), in Glendale. The arrangement of a separate arena (instead of sharing the existing arena home of the NBA's Phoenix Suns) and the ensuing bad lease terms (which Glendale has repeatedly refused to renegotiate) has resulted in lack of fan support and repeated threats to relocate.

They were previously partially owned by an all-time great of Hockey, Wayne Gretzky, before its sale to current ownership group IceArizona, LLC in 2013. The current head coach is Dave Tippett.
