GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Andrew Barroway's lifelong attraction to hockey began as a fan of the Philadelphia Flyers' "Broad Street Bullies" of the 1970s.

On Dec. 31, the NHL Board of Governors approved Barroway's purchase of a majority stake (51 percent) in the Arizona Coyotes, two days after they defeated the Flyers 4-2.

"My first game here was against the Flyers. Even though they were my team, I couldn't have been happier beating them," said Barroway, who was introduced as majority owner, chairman and governor of the Coyotes on Friday at Gila River Arena. "It was awesome. It was an easy transition and I have become a fan immediately.

"We want to build for the future here. We think there is tremendous opportunity and tremendous upside to this organization."

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
