Arizona Coyotes To Las Vegas? NHL Denies Relocation Report
The NHL denied a report from the New York Post about the Arizona Coyotes moving to Las Vegas. It could be all smoke and mirrors for now though.By Matt Moreno | July 1, 2015
The NHL strongly denied a New York Post report Tuesday about the Coyotes leaving Arizona for Las Vegas, Nevada, but that doesn't mean it won't happen.
The New York Post reports, "The NHL is arranging the sale of the Arizona Coyotes to billionaire William Foley who will move the team to Las Vegas giving it its first major professional franchise, one source said." According to the report, that would happen in the 2016-2017 season.
Vegas for a long time has been considered a destination for the NHL. The city is currently building a new arena and already has down payments placed on 10,000 season tickets. (Video via Vegas Wants Hockey)
