Arizona Coyotes kind-of-sort-of confirm Barroway courtship

The Arizona Coyotes aren't exactly thrilled with the New York Post's Larry Brooks' report that the team's being sold to rejected Islanders bidder Andrew Barroway, but instead of denying the report, the team's suggesting that an investor may "join" the ownership group:

COYOTES STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Thursday, October 2, 2014

GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- The Arizona Coyotes issued the following statement today:

"In response to media reports today, the Arizona Coyotes can confirm that IceArizona has been in discussions with an unsolicited potential investor who is interested in joining the partnership. This should be viewed as an incredibly positive development and is due to the successful first year of IceArizona's ownership. This is all about the long-term stability and viability of the franchise in Arizona. By no means are any members of the current IceArizona group departing the ownership. While there has been no confirmation of any transaction, this is something that the current ownership group is exploring."

The Coyotes will have no further comment at this time.
