Hockey head says puck ain’t leaving the desert

AZCoyotes-644By Peter Corbett | The Arizona Republic

A potential new investor in the Arizona Coyotes would be a big plus for the franchise, according to NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, who on Thursday slapped down speculation that it would result in the team leaving Glendale.

Bettman, speaking hours before the Coyotes’ season opener at Gila River Arena, said interest in the Coyotes from an investor — whom he declined to identify — indicates the club is stronger than when the NHL sold it last year to the current ownership group headed by Anthony LeBlanc.

“Someone has decided that this is a good place to invest,” Bettman said. “That’s good for the game, the league and this community.”
