NHL, Hulsizer Amend Coyotes Deal In Final Push To Keep Team In Phoenix
Published April 27, 2011
THE CLOCK IS TICKING: In Phoenix, Mike Sunnucks reports some officials and sources familiar with the process "peg late May or June as the deadline" for the NHL to determine whether the Coyotes will stay in Glendale or move to Winnipeg. Those officials "expect the fate of the Coyotes to be announced after the Stanley Cup Finals and before the NHL schedule is announced for next season," which generally happens in June. But another source said that the NHL "may make up its mind privately as early as May 6." If the franchise relocates to Winnipeg, it "might adopt the Manitoba Moose name instead of going back to the old Winnipeg Jets" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 4/27).
