The Arizona Coyotes Bring the Ice to the Desert
The Arizona Coyotes played their first season in 1972, originally as the Winnipeg Jets. They joined the NHL in 1979, and then moved to Phoenix in 1996 as the Phoenix Coyotes. They changed their name to the Arizona Coyotes in 2014. The Coyotes are one of the few professional sports teams in this part of the country, and tickets to Arizona Coyotes games can go fast sometimes.
The Coyotes have seen some success over the years, even though they have had some struggles in recent years. They even won their first Division Championship during the 2011-2012 season. They have never won a Stanley Cup title, but this isn’t uncommon considering how young the team is. It’s only a matter of time before this happens. Mike Gartner and Brett Hull are the only two members of the franchise to have been inducted into the professional hockey Hall of Fame. That does not mean that the team has not had its fair share of quality talent, though. In fact, even the great Wayne Gretzky was associated with the team for a while, acting as a part owner and the head of hockey operations. The Great One never played for the Coyotes, but was one of the big reasons why the team was successful and had a viable fan base after the move to Phoenix.
The team has had its fair share of problems, just like many professional sports teams face now and then. The team had to declare bankruptcy at one point several years ago, but a new owner stepped in and the team is once again moving forward. They have moved into the Gila River Arena in 2003 and they are located just across the street from the University of Phoenix Stadium where the Arizona Cardinals play their home games. The team has begun to rebuild a loyal fan base, and tickets to Arizona Coyotes games have become more and more popular over the years. They are a fun team to watch, and they have a young and talented team that is poised to do great things in the coming seasons. Grab your tickets as soon as you can to guarantee that you have seats for your next game.
