Glendale's sports dream sours amid Coyotes deal conflict — At the dawn of the millennium, Glendale had a dream of using sports to spark economic development that city leaders believed would transform the sometimes disparaged suburb into a big-league city. The Phoenix Coyotes moved west to an arena in a farm field in 2003, and three years later, the Arizona Cardinals landed in a futuristic stadium south of the Westgate Entertainment District.

What's the deal with the Coyotes arena lease? — The Glendale City Council will consider ending its 15-year, $225 million agreement with the Arizona Coyotes at a 6 p.m. meeting Wednesday at City Hall. That meeting announcement added heat to long-simmering tensions between the city and Coyotes over a deal approved in July 2013 to keep the team from leaving Glendale.

Coyotes analyst Nick Boynton charged after casino incident — Arizona Coyotes radio analyst Nick Boynton has been placed on leave on absence after an incident at a Buffalo casino, the team announced Thursday. "Early this morning, Coyotes radio color analyst Nick Boynton was involved in a situation at a Buffalo casino. A police investigation is under way," the Coyotes said in a statement.

Coyotes' Mike Smith claws his way out of bad start — The benchmark isn't close to where the best in the league reside, but it's still a milepost worth acknowledging - especially since it had eluded Coyotes goalie Mike Smith for the entire season.

Coyotes bracing for action before trade deadline — OTTAWA - The change expected to revamp the Arizona Coyotes has been slow to hatch, but management has made no secret that it will be executing decisions for the future's best interest. "We can't hide from our record, and our record says we're a lot closer to the top pick in the draft than to a playoff spot," General Manager Don Maloney said.

Mikkel Boedker back in Phoenix after spleen surgery — TORONTO - Just as the Arizona Coyotes started to file out of a practice rink in Toronto Wednesday after an on-ice session they hope is the one to spark a win into the horde of losses that have accumulated recently, winger Mikkel Boedker walked off a plane in Phoenix.

Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson enjoyed All-Star experience — PHILADELPHIA - Cancelled flights, a reroute to Washington D.C. and finally a train ride to Philadelphia reunited defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson with the Coyotes on Monday, but the 12-hour travel day was a small price to pay after spending the weekend at the NHL All-Star Game in Columbus, Ohio.

Coyotes' Mikkel Boedker has spleen removed — In a season littered with frustration amid unmet expectations, the Arizona Coyotes haven't had many bright spots to embrace. Winger Mikkel Boedker's performance of late was emerging as one of them. He leads the team in goals with 14, but the Coyotes won't be able to count on that offense in the near future as Boedker was placed on injured reserve Monday.

Coyotes' Shane Doan credits a life-saver — It had been 34 days since he embarked on this routine, navigating the wheel of his black Ford truck along the Loop 101 in a suit he hadn't had a use for in weeks.
