TEMPE, AZ — As the Arizona Coyotes continue to evolve with new ownership and new personnel, the team’s president suggested another new opportunity could be in store:

An NHL outdoor game landing in Arizona, possibly at Sun Devil Stadium.

During the Coyotes’ town hall meeting on June 28, team President and CEO Ahron Cohen said he liked the idea of the Winter Classic, or another outdoor game, coming to the Valley.

“I don’t think there is a better location than Sun Devil Stadium for an outdoor game,” Cohen said.
