Coyotes unveil special 20th anniversary logo
This season will the Arizona Coyotes’ 20th in the Valley of the Sun.
They began playing in Phoenix before moving to Glendale, and it now appears they are on the verge of finding another new home.
But whatever city they have played in, Arizona has remained the franchise’s home state since it moved from Winnipeg in 1996, and to commemorate the team’s two decades in the desert southwest, the Coyotes unveiled a special 20th anniversary logo for this upcoming season.
“Fans throughout Arizona have passionately embraced the Coyotes since our first season in 1996,” said Coyotes president and CEO Anthony LeBlanc. “We are extremely proud of our rich hockey history in the desert and we are looking forward to celebrating our 20 years in the Valley this season.”
The logo will be featured prominently this season, as it will adorn center ice at Gila River Arena for all home games and will be visible on ArizonaCoyotes.com. Players will also wear the 20th anniversary patch on the right chest of their jerseys, both home and away.
