NHL, Glendale make interim deal to keep Coyotes in Arizona
The National Hockey League and the city of Glendale, Ariz., are expected to enter into another one-year interim agreement to work together on securing ownership for the Phoenix Coyotes to keep the team in Glendale. The Glendale City Council will vote on the action at its next meeting on Tuesday that will keep the team playing at Jobing.com Arena for the 2011-12 season. Both the NHL and city of Glendale intend to continue working on a sale to the potential ownership group led by Chicago businessman Matt Hulsizer.

"As we have for the past two-plus years, we have been working very closely with the City of Glendale to do everything possible to ensure the Coyotes' future in Glendale," NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly told NHL.com. "At the City's request, we have agreed to pursue another one-year interim arrangement while we jointly pursue a long-term ownership solution. We remain confident that one exists, and we intend to continue to pursue it."
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
