According to Daily Faceoff, some severe talks occurred between the NHL, Arizona Coyotes, and Smith Entertainment Group. They're striving towards a deal that could see the Coyotes packing up and moving to Salt Lake City, Utah.

The details are still unclear, but they seem to be figuring out the logistics. The NHL even sent a memo to the Board of Governors to keep them in the loop. The players might have been given a heads-up about a potential agreement, but there's some debate on that.


Nothing's set in stone yet. There's still a bunch of moving parts.


The NHL is already planning for either scenario. They're drafting up schedules for the next season, one with the Coyotes staying put in Arizona and another with them kicking off in Salt Lake City.


Now, here's where it gets interesting. If the Coyotes do move, it could happen in several ways. One involves them sticking around in Phoenix and building a shiny new arena. The other path is about a big sale, with Ryan Smith Entertainment Group potentially giving $1.2 billion, to be exact. There's talk of a relocation fee and financial maneuvers.

We might hear some big news after April 18th, right after the Coyotes' last home game. There's speculation that the team's current owner could walk away with a cool billion bucks if everything goes according to plan. Remember, these are just rumors for now. We'll have to wait and see how it all shakes out.
