The future of the Coyotes in Arizona is uncertain after voters rejected the NHL team’s plan for a multi-million dollar stadium and entertainment district in Tempe.
Despite the recent setback, the Coyotes plan to play at Mullett Arena on the Arizona State University campus for the 2023-24 season.
However, since the vote, there has been speculation about the relocation of the team.
Several cities have been rumored as landing spots for the NHL franchise should it finally pack up and move. Markets such as Houston, Salt Lake City, Kansas City and Quebec City have been mentioned.

There has been no shortage of observers weighing in on the future of the Coyotes, with some pushing for the team to move to their respective cities.
One of the most prominent athletes to publicly recruit the Coyotes is NFL superstar player Patrick Mahomes.
The quarterback has spent his entire professional football career with the Kansas City Chiefs, winning two Super Bowls.
Mahomes took to Twitter to share his thoughts on which city should consider hockey franchising.
«KC coyotes sounds good! @NHL what do you think? @tmobilecenter,» Mahomes wrote.

The T-Mobile Center is located in downtown Kansas City and opened in 2007.
The arena previously hosted the Kansas City Command of the Arena Football League and currently hosts the Big 12 men’s basketball tournament.
Social media reacted quickly to Mahomes’ Arizona Coyotes relocation suggestion, with one Twitter user drawing controversy by targeting the quarterback’s brother, Jackson, in a response.
Jackson was charged with three counts of aggravated sexual assault and one count of battery in Johnson County, Kansas, last week after a February incident at a restaurant.
