Coyotes relocation decision could come before NHL playoffs, according to report

Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE

"Time is running out" for a potential sale.

TSN's Darren Dreger offered some news on Wednesday that will keep Phoenix Coyotes fans biting their fingernails for the remainder of the regular season.

During a segment on TSN's broadcast, Dreger mentioned that the NHL is nearing a "decision" about the embattled franchise. He later took to Twitter to provide more details, saying that while the league will continue to fight to keep the Coyotes in Glendale by meeting with prospective buyers, "time is running out" and a decision about possible relocation could come before the NHL playoffs begin.

Dreger also mentioned that Quebec City, Seattle and Kansas City are among the possible relocation sites, with Quebec City considered the favorite to land the Coyotes. Prospective Seattle sports owner Chris Hansen released images of his new arena a few weeks ago.
