Phoenix Coyotes officially become the Arizona Coyotes at the 2014 NHL Draft

The Phoenix Coyotes announced in January that they’d be changing their name to the Arizona Coyotes prior to the 2014-15 season. Details surrounding when the actual change would take place have been kept pretty quiet, but the organization has finally chosen a day.

Changing from Phoenix to Arizona isn’t a very significant change, but it may sound kind of strange when they first announce the Coyotes at the upcoming Draft.
