The Arizona Coyotes are an ice hockey team that plays in the NHL. They play in Glendale, Arizona.

In 1996, the team moved to Phoenix from Winnipeg, Canada, where they were known as the Jets. The team moved to the suburb of Glendale in December 2003. They have never won a Stanley Cup. Their head coach is Dave Tippett and their general manager is Don Maloney. Wayne Gretzky resigned as head coach on September 14, 2009. In May of 2009, the Coyotes filed for bankruptcy protection.[3]

With the opening of their new arena in Glendale, the time had come for a new set of logos and uniforms to reflect the aggressiveness and excitement of Coyotes hockey in the new arena while maintaining ties to seven years of Arizona history. The official Coyotes colors were now brick red, desert sand and black – three colors that were all included in the original Coyotes logo.
