The Arizona Coyotes really tried to establish themselves in Tempe, a suburb of Phoenix. Their plan didn’t work, as we’ve learned over the past few months.
It wasn’t ideal, considering that being in the suburbs is detrimental in the NHL. #Ottawa #Kanata
That’s what came out of Arizona in the last few hours.
And that’s without traffic.
That’s where Coyotes owner Alex Meruelo submitted a letter of intent to purchase 41 acres of land to build the club’s next arena.
It’s worth mentioning that this isn’t the only place the Coyotes are looking. Scottsdale and Phoenix are also on the radar of the Coyotes, who want to have several options on the table should several options no longer work.
Options falling through in Arizona? We’ve seen that before.
But the fact remains that, right now, the main plan is to move to Mesa. I know the city because the Chicago Cubs hold their training camp there… but otherwise? Many people don’t.
And now the plan is to bring an NHL club there, to keep a bad franchise in Arizona as long as possible. Meanwhile, in Quebec City – ah pis laissez faire.

The club’s plan is to have an answer by early 2024. From there, work could begin so the Coyotes can move there for the 2026-2027 season.
That’s three years away.
André Tourigny will continue to live with uncertainty. After all, if the Mesa plan doesn’t work out, what’s next?
