NHL lockout 2012: Phoenix Coyotes media relations manager laid off due to lockout

Christian Petersen

The Phoenix Coyotes relieved their media relations manager due to the lockout.

The Phoenix Coyotes laid off media relations manager Tim Bulmer on Wednesday due to the NHL lockout. Bulmer stated in an email to Craig Morgan of Fox Sports Arizona that his last day will be on Nov. 5 and later confirmed to Greg Wyshynski of Yahoo! that he was let go due to the lockout.

As of this time, it doesn't appear as though the organization has relieved any other employees.

With the NHL and NHL Players Association still at odds in collective bargaining, the threat of company employees losing jobs has been a concern since the beginning of the process. The Florida Panthers and Ottawa Senators have already been forced to relieve employees of their duties in addition to the league offices cutting down their business week to four-days and reducing employees' salaries by 20 percent.

The NHL and NHLPA have yet to announce any future meetings but the two sides have been in contact via phone and email. Last week, the league announced the cancelation of all regular season games through Nov. 30 and reports have already circulated that the Winter Classic could be canceled sometime this week.
