Renowned insider Frank Seravalli is doing an excellent job in connection with this case, and we already have new information.

Let's remember that we learned last night that Gary Bettman would make a huge announcement regarding the future of the Coyotes, in Arizona, as early as this weekend.

Three options are on the table:

Either the NHL will demand that the Coyotes identify a site immediately in anticipation of constructing a new arena, which is unlikely.


Or the NHL will announce that the Coyotes are moving (to Salt Lake City?).

Or the NHL will force owner Alex Meruelo to sell his team to investors who will keep it in Arizona.

Well, according to the latest scoop from Frank Seravalli, we can eliminate the last option.

«UPDATE: I'm told that Phoenix Suns owner Mat Ishbia is not going to buy the Coyotes.

Unless another mysterious (and miraculous) local businessman is interested in buying the team and financing everything privately himself, this eliminates one of the three options.»

Wow! This story is developing very quickly, and a relocation of the Coyotes seems more possible than ever.

Salt Lake City is mentioned a lot, but Quebec is 100% ready and the checks are ready:
