The Arizona Coyotes will remain at Gila River Arena in Glendale for at least one more season.
The Coyotes plan to renew their year-to-year lease with the City of Glendale through the 2018-19 season, the team confirmed to ABC15 on Tuesday.
"We are absolutely planning to play next season at Gila River Arena and are focused on building a winning hockey team, positively contributing to our community, and achieving success in all aspects of our business," Coyotes COO Ahron Cohen said.
The Coyotes have played their home games at Gila River Arena since the 2003-04 season after spending their first seven seasons in the Valley at what is now Talking Stick Resort Arena, which is also home to the Phoenix Suns. But legal differences between the Coyotes and Glendale led the team to actively explore options for a new arena in the Valley.
