GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- Arizona Coyotes President and CEO Steve Patterson issued the following statement today regarding the ice condition at Gila River Arena.

"Last weekend, AEG Facilities, which serves as the manager for Gila River Arena, determined that poor ice conditions precluded the team from playing its first preseason game on Monday, September 18 versus the Los Angeles Kings. The problem has since been corrected and a new sheet of ice has been installed. The Coyotes preseason game against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday, September 23 will take place as planned.

"On behalf of the entire organization, I would like to thank our fans and corporate partners for their patience and understanding throughout this process. We look forward to seeing everyone at our game on Saturday."
