The Arizona Coyotes denied a Forbes report that suggested the NHL franchise is for sale and drawing interest from a potential buyer who would move the organization to Houston.
“This is false. Totally false,” the Coyotes said in a statement to Craig Morgan of the NHL Network. “We’re not selling. We’re not moving. The Coyotes are 100 percent committed to playing in Arizona.”
The future of the Coyotes has come into question since the City of Glendale announced in August it was not going to extend its lease agreement with the franchise to use Gila River Arena, which has served as the team’s home ice since 2003.
