Coyotes Changing Name from Phoenix to Arizona

The Phoenix Coyotes will change its team name to Arizona Coyotes at the start of the 2014-15 NHL season. Phoenix Coyotes Co-Owner, President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc, officially announced the name change decision on Wednesday.

“We are very excited to announce that our franchise name will change to Arizona Coyotes for the start of the 2014-15 NHL season,” said LeBlanc. “Becoming the Arizona Coyotes makes sense for us since we play our games in Glendale and the city is such a great partner of ours.” 

The name Phoenix Coyotes was given to the hockey team in 1996 when it moved to the Valley from Winnipeg. Since then, the Phoenix Coyotes played their home games in downtown Phoenix until 2003. But in 2003, the Coyotes moved to Glendale, Arizona. Now as the team is playing its home games in Glendale, Arizona, it has decided to change its name to Arizona Coyotes to better represent its state.

“We also want to be recognized as not just the hockey team for Glendale or Phoenix, but the team for the entire state of Arizona and the Southwest,” added LeBlanc. “We hope that the name ‘Arizona’ will encourage more fans from all over the state, not just the valley, to embrace and support our team.”

The Coyotes are also doing a minor dress change along with name change. The Coyotes home and road jerseys will have new shoulder patches in the 2014-15 National Hockey League season. And the Coyotes will unveil this new shoulder patch in the first preseason game. No other change in the uniform will take place.
