The Arizona Coyotes are about to play their 20th season in the Valley. Though that might not seem special, it wasn’t long ago that a 20th season seemed unthinkable.

In 2013, The Guardian called the Phoenix hockey market “dead” and hypothesized the Coyotes would move to one of three other cities. Just over a year ago, the New York Post declared that the Coyotes were moving to Vegas.
But here they are.
