STATEMENT FROM THE PHOENIX COYOTES ON THE RESIGNATION OF MANAGING PARTNER-HEAD COACH WAYNE GRETZKY
/ Arizona Coyotes
The Phoenix Coyotes would like to sincerely thank Wayne Gretzky for his dedicated service to the Coyotes organization since joining the club in 2000. During that time, he gave the team a true identity and credibility. His passion for the sport of hockey, and specifically, hockey in Phoenix, was an inspiration to those he worked with on a daily basis. Wayne’s unmatched professionalism will also be missed.
Wayne is often credited with the rise of hockey in southern and western markets. He was proud to represent one of those very franchises, and the Coyotes were fortunate to have him. Although his time with the Coyotes has come to an end, the examples he set and the legacy he leaves will undoubtedly have a lasting impact on everyone associated with the franchise.
