Arizona Coyotes officials have confirmed the team will stay in Glendale for another season as the team draws larger crowds to Gila River Arena than it has in years.

“We will absolutely play the 2020-2021 NHL season in Gila River Arena,” Coyotes CEO Ahron Cohen said in a statement on Friday.

The team is riding a high this year, with more people at its games and a better record on the ice than it has enjoyed in years.

It has been under an annual lease with arena manager ASM Global, formerly AEG Facilities, since 2016. The lease automatically renews at the end of each year unless the team opts out, which Cohen said it doesn’t intend to do.

The short-term nature of the lease leads to constant speculation about whether the Coyotes will leave Glendale with little notice.
