History Of The Arizona Coyotes
The Arizona Coyotes started their life as the Winnipeg Jets. The original Winnipeg team was formed in 1972 and played in the World Hockey Association from 1972 to 1979. The Jets were one of four WHA teams that joined the NHL as part of the 1979 merger of the leagues. In 1996 to team moved to Phoenix and became the Coyotes. At the start of the 2014-2015 NHL Season their name was changed to the Arizona Coyotes.
Following the WHA-NHL merger, the Jets suffered a great deal by losing a number of their top players who were reclaimed by teams they previously played for before joining the new league. In addition, player salary increases hurt the team financially as it was the second-smallest market to have an NHL team.
The Coyotes are currently a league-owned team after the NHL took over ownership in 2009. This follows the bankruptcy of former team owner Jerry Moyes who had suffered massive losses after buying the team in 2005. At one point Moyes tried to sell the team to a Canadian billionaire named Jim Balsillie. Balsillie’s plan was to relocate the Coyotes to Hamilton, Ontario. This would have violated a league policy and the issue went to court and the NHL won and has resisted other offers to buy the team to prevent it from being moved from the Phoenix area.
The team colors are red, black, Desert sand and white and the team plays in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference.
Top players for the team include Shane Doan (1995-present), Keith Tkachuk (1992-2001), Teppo Numminen (1988-2003), Jeremy Roenick (1996-2007), Sean Burke (1999-2003), Ed Jovanovski (2006-2011) and Radim Vrbata (2007-2012).
As the original Winnipeg Jets the team did not win a Stanley Cup but did win three Avco World Trophies (1975-1976, 1977-1978, 1978-1979) and three Division Championships. As the Coyotes the team has not won a Stanley Cup but they have won one Division Championship.
