If you didn't know it was the "Noche de Los Yotes" celebration at Gila River Arena on Thursday, the Arizona Coyotes special warmup jerseys certainly gave it away.

The Coyotes wore specially made sweaters before their game against the Nashville Predators featuring a colorful Calavera, or Sugar Skull, a traditional decoration for the Mexican holiday, Dia De Los Muertos.

The celebratory night coincides with the Coyotes announcement of a Hispanic Advisory Board.

As for atmosphere, the tone was set outside the arena with a live mariachi band.
