Phoenix Coyotes to Winnipeg Move Rumored, Refuted

Yesterday a rumor surfaced that the Phoenix Coyotes would be moving to Winnipeg at the conclusion of the NHL playoffs.  Bill Daly, the deputy commissioner of the league, subsequently refuted those rumors, stating as follows:

“No decisions have been made at this point one way or the other. Efforts to sell the club in Glendale remain ongoing.”

The future of the Coyotes, now owned by the NHL, has been in flux for quite some time now.  Connecticut Sports Law Featured Columnist Dan Canavan has covered the plight of the Coyotes in detail, including whether Hartford could be a destination for the franchise.  Here are a few of his articles on this topic:
