  • The Arizona Coyotes are a professional ice hockey team based in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale, Arizona. They compete in the National Hockey League's Pacific Division of the Western Conference. Since December 2003, the Coyotes have played their home games at Gila River Arena after having spent the previous 7½ seasons at America West Arena in downtown Phoenix. The Coyotes were founded on December 27, 1971 as the original Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Association. After the WHA had ceased operations, they were one of four original franchises absorbed into the National Hockey League and then officially granted membership on June 22, 1979. The Jets moved to Phoenix on July 1, 1996 and were renamed as the Phoenix Coyotes. The NHL took over ownership of the Phoenix Coyotes franchise in 2009 after previous owner Jerry Moyes turned it over to the league after declaring bankruptcy. Prior to that, Moyes had previously attempted to privately sell the team to Canadian billionaire Jim Balsillie, who wanted to relocate the team to Hamilton, Ontario, but the NHL protested that the attempted sale was a violation of league policy and a court agreed.
