Arizona Coyotes Tickets
The Arizona Coyotes were originally based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada where it played as the Winnipeg Jets since 1972 and entered the World Hockey Association (WHA) in 1971. In 1979, the team registered with the National Hockey League (NHL). When the team relocated to Arizona in 1996-1997, they were renamed as the Arizona Coyotes. Upon relocation, the Coyotes relied on players Keith Tkachuk, Shane Doan and Teppo Numminen. Wayne Gretzky became the team’s head coach in 2005 (he was also the team’s minority owner since 2000). The franchise fought their way through difficulty involving bankruptcy and team struggle for years until the NHL bought the team out in 2009. In the 2009-2010 season, the Arizona Coyotes bested all odds and won a total of 50 games that season, which was a record for the team since joining the NHL. In 2011-2012, the Arizona Coyotes won their first division title ever since the team’s inception. You can find Arizona Coyotes tickets to see their live games at StubHub.
