Another source Craig Morgan believes an official announcement will be made by the team on April 17th the day of the Coyotes' last home game in Arizona.

Per multiple sources, the Coyotes have been informed that relocation to Salt Lake City is real.
Now hearing it could actually be announced on April 17; the date of the Coyotes' final game at home vs. Edmonton.
It's going to be quite an atmosphere that night at Mullett Arena

This is a sad say for Coyotes fans who will now lose their franchise due to ownership's inability to secure a new arena. Hopefully for the NHL and the franchise their move to Utah will be successful and bring stability.
