The Arizona Coyotes have been linked to potential relocation for some time, and now, that move appears more certain than ever.

Elliotte Friedman reveals the end is near for Arizona

They will begin the process of selling the team or the NHL taking over the team and selling it to someone else, I believe we will get there.

Following that statement, Frank Seravalli revealed that Suns Owner Mat Ishbia is no longer interested in buying the Coyotes, and unless something changes, it appears there's no one left to keep the team in Arizona.

UPDATE: Told @Suns owner Mat Ishbia is not pursuing the #Yotes. Unless there is another mystery local businessperson interested in buying the team and privately funding it all, that crosses off one of the three options.


With Utah Jazz Owner Ryan Smith intent on bringing the NHL to Salt Lake City, relocation becomes a major possibility, and with news expected soon, this could be the official end of the NHL in Arizona.
