Coyotes co-owner LeBlanc says team is not considering relocation amid lease termination
The drama continues to unfold in Glendale.
After Glendale city council voted to terminate the lease agreement that would see the Arizona Coyotes play at Gila River Arena, team co-owner Anthony LeBlanc remained adamant Thursday that the club has no plans of relocating.
LeBlanc held a conference call Thursday where he explained that the team has not considered relocation and that despite the ownership group having an out-clause, they do not plan to use it, opting to stay in Glendale.
LeBlanc suggested that there may come a time where he doesn't have a choice in the matter, but noted he hasn't thought that far down the road.
"If that goes sideways ... We have to figure out what our Plan B is," said LeBlanc. "We believe in this market. We're moving in the right direction."
LeBlanc insists ownership will be taking legal action in the coming days, and maybe then the future of the team will become more clear.
