The Coyotes compete in the National Hockey League (NHL) as a member of the Central Division in the Western Conference. They first played at America West Arena in downtown Phoenix before moving to Glendale's Gila River Arena on December 27, 2003. For the 2021–22 NHL season, the Coyotes returned to the Central Division for the first time since the 1997–98 season.Originally founded on December 27, 1971 as the Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Association (WHA), they were one of four franchises absorbed into the NHL after the WHA had ceased operations, and were granted membership on June 22, 1979. The Jets moved to Phoenix on July 1, 1996, and were renamed the Phoenix Coyotes. The franchise finalized a second name change to become the Arizona Coyotes on June 27, 2014. Alex Meruelo became the majority owner on July 29, 2019.The team has been known for its instability under prior ownership. The NHL took over operations of the Phoenix Coyotes franchise in 2009, when then-owner Jerry Moyes turned it over directly to the league after declaring bankruptcy. The NHL maintained control of the team until 2013, when they were able to find new ownership willing to keep the franchise in Arizona. Despite their difficult working relationship with the city of Glendale and their use of Gila River Arena, the Coyotes were able to secure a year-to-year arrangement to play in the facility until the end of the 2021–22 season. To date, they are the oldest franchise to have never played in the Stanley Cup Finals.
