The Glendale City Council will vote on the action at its next meeting on Tuesday (May 10) that will keep the team playing at 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 "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."
