Coyotes President and C.O.O. Mike Nealy has issued the following statement regarding today's news about a tentative agreement between the NHL and the NHLPA on a new CBA:
"We are extremely pleased to hear that the NHL and NHLPA have reached a tentative agreement on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. We'd like to thank all of our season ticket holders, corporate partners and fans for their incredible loyalty and patience throughout this process. We look forward to dropping the puck at Jobing.com Arena very soon."
EDITOR'S NOTE: Once the CBA is ratified, the Coyotes will move quickly to ensure that the new revised NHL schedule is made public so that fans are ready for Coyotes hockey at Jobing.com Arena. We expect that the 2012-13 season will begin on Saturday, Jan. 19 but that is the only information we can share at this time.
We appreciate that this has been a very difficult time for all of our fans and we thank our fans for your continued patience, loyalty and support.
