Statement From The Arizona Coyotes On Moving To The Central Division

GLENDALE, ARIZONA - Arizona Coyotes President & CEO Ahron Cohen issued the following statement regarding today's announcement by the National Hockey League that the Coyotes will move to the Central Division of the Western Conference in 2021-22.

"We are happy to welcome Seattle as the NHL's 32nd franchise as the NHL continues to grow the game of hockey throughout North America," said Cohen. "We will work with the League to ensure a smooth transition into the Central Division in time for the 2021-22 season, and we appreciate the League's willingness to assist with logistics and scheduling to make travel as easy as possible between our home in Phoenix and the other Central destinations.

"Our fans should take comfort in knowing they will continue to see us play our Pacific Division rivals multiple times a year-including squaring off with Vegas for desert bragging rights-while also getting to see new rivalries with some legacy franchises.  Regardless of what division we are in, our goals remain the same: win on the ice against whomever they put in front of us on the schedule, build Coyotes fandom throughout the entire State of Arizona, and positively impact our Arizona community."
