Coyotes Get Another Year in the Desert

From Dave Vest, Sr. News Director of the Coyotes:

[Mayor Scruggs] is voting “yes.” That’s a 5-2 vote by the Council in favor of extending the Arena Management Agreement with the NHL for another year.

Tick, tock.

Update 2:16am ET: Statement from the Coyotes—

“On behalf of the entire Phoenix Coyotes organization, we are very pleased that Glendale City Council voted in favor of keeping the Coyotes in the Valley for the upcoming 2011-12 NHL season. We are grateful to Glendale Mayor Elaine Scruggs, City Manager Ed Beasley and Glendale City Council for their unwavering support. The City of Glendale and the National Hockey League are committed to hockey in Arizona and we will continue to work with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and Mayor Scruggs to find a long-term ownership solution that will keep the Coyotes in Glendale for many years to come.”

– Phoenix Coyotes COO Mike Nealy
