About the Arizona Coyotes
Arizona Coyotes Tickets
At first glance, playing hockey in the desert might seem... paradoxical. However, for over 20 years, the Arizona Coyotes have found a way to make it work, forming an icy oasis in the middle of the hot, dry Southwest. After starting out as the Winnipeg Jets back in the 1970s, the Coyotes have found a home in Arizona, despite a lack of success on the ice.
The Coyotes assembled quite a bit of star power during their early years in the Arizona desert. Longtime Blackhawks star Jeremy Roenick came aboard, joining the likes of Keith Tkachuk, Shane Doan, and Rick Tocchet. It was a roster full of talent, but only enough to get the Coyotes into the playoffs – not advance once they got there.
The Great One
The franchise got a huge boost in 2001 when hockey legend Wayne Gretzky joined the Coyotes as both a part-owner and the head of hockey operations. Following the strike of 2004-05, Gretzky inserted himself as the team’s head coach. Unfortunately, the Great One didn't quite have the same magic touch when it came to coaching. The Coyotes failed to reach the playoffs in all four seasons under Gretzky, never finishing better than 12th in the Western Conference.
A Brief Spark
After Gretzky stepped down as head coach in 2009, the Coyotes had a brief period of success. They reached the playoffs in three straight seasons, culminating in their first-ever division title in 2012, a season that ended in the Western Conference Finals. Unfortunately for the Coyotes, that is their most recent playoff series. New ownership that came aboard in 2013 has not led to much success on the ice in recent years.
