Fans of Canadian NHL teams would always populate the stands at Coyotes games in Glendale. Some fans in attendance at Mullett Arena wondered what the crowds would look like when teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs visit Tempe -- how many of those 5, 000 seats would contain visiting jerseys? "The reality is Canadians love hockey, " Gutierrez said with a laugh, "and this is the second-largest Canadian snowbird market in the country.

"They're going to get to see some of the great players on the ice that are a level that you never get to see. And then you get to see all of our fans up close and personal. ""It's going to be a little more intimate. Everyone is going to see the reactions on the bench. You might even hear some people's reactions. That'll be fun, " Doan added. "We'll see how it all works out. It's going to be something that people talk about. "As a player and an executive, he has seen some...
"People say there aren't Coyotes fans. Well, yes, Virginia: There are Coyotes fans, " Lutz said, surveying the 4, 600 fans in attendance. He was a "day one" Coyotes supporter: a season-ticket holder at American West Arena in Phoenix and then in Glendale, where the team played 18 years. That was before the city refused to renew the Coyotes' arena lease, necessitating the move to Arizona State University's brand-new Mullett Arena.
"First of all, I love the Minions. Their favorite food, in general, is a banana, " Dunn said, standing among fans who were wearing more jerseys than fruit. "Also, it's Halloween [weekend] and we thought there would be more people in costume. But I guess not! "Dunn is exactly the kind of fan the Coyotes find appealing at ASU: This was his first NHL game. "I'm a Seattle Kraken fan. I'm brand-new to hockey. I'm not a Coyotes fan, " he said. "I went to the ASU game last week and it was a great atmosphere. The tickets are $25, so might as well. "Coyotes president and CEO Xavier A. Gutierrez said the team expects to foster new fandom on campus. "We have actually created something called Coyotes U, which has a specific student fan club in which they will have special-price tickets to be there, " he said.

"We've wanted to expose hockey and our organization to the great students here. This is the largest public university in the country. We thought it was an incredible opportunity for us to bring them here, to have them be exposed and to make lifelong fans. "In turn, the Coyotes get an infusion of youthful exuberance at each home game. Against the Jets, the student section started the game's first "Let's go Coyotes! " (pronounced "Kai-yotes") chant and kept the energy going. The students imported some NCAA hockey game standards, chanting "You can't do that! " on the game's first penalty and "It's all your fault" after Winnipeg goalie David Rittich surrendered the game's first goal.
They were whipped into a frenzy during T-shirt tosses. Dunn and friends weren't the only ones in costume in the student section. One of the drum line's drummers watched a group of men dressed in matching checkered jumpsuits walk into the student section. "That's the dance team, " the drummer said. "What's the dance team? " I inquired. "They're a team and they have to dance. They have the music in them. Like how I have to play this drum, " he said, giving it a gentle wallop with his stick.

The front of his sweater was a sea of commemorative pins. He pointed to two of them that identify him as a "day one" Coyotes fan in their inaugural season. They were located near a red heart with the words "I'm special" in Braille that he wears in honor of his daughter, who is blind. "I love this [arena], because it's going to keep us in Arizona until the new arena gets built, " he said. Like many of the fans outside the student section, Lutz was a season-ticket holder in Glendale whose seats were transferred to ASU.
Craig Morgan of PHNX Sports reports that the Tempe City Council is likely to refer the Coyotes' arena and entertainment district proposal to referendum, leaving a vote in citizens' hands. "Sometimes the city makes deals and it ends up costing the taxpayers a little bit of money, " McKinstry said. "Overall, it's promising. I guess we'll see what happens. "The Shane Doan experienceNo one played more games (1, 540), scored more goals (402) or tallied more points (972) as a Coyote than Shane Doan. The 21-year NHL veteran, who last played in 2017, was the Coyotes' chief hockey development officer before taking a step back from the role before the season. What would Shane Doan, the player, think about calling Mullett Arena home? "You know what? It's cool.
let's call it "stuff" through the years with this organization. "What? " he said, laughing. "Nah, what are you talking about? "Hypothetically, had someone told Doan several years ago that the Coyotes would be kicked out of Glendale and playing in a college hockey arena in Tempe, how would he have reacted? "If you think that you can predict what's going to happen, that's usually when you're a fool, " he said. "This has been an adventure. We're trying to keep her going. The end goal is what we're focused on. If we can get to that, then it'll all have been worth it.
The Arizona State University student had purchased tickets to the Coyotes' first game against the Jets along with some friends. The team is selling between 250 and 400 student-section tickets each game for $25 apiece -- an incredible bargain, given there isn't another seat in Mullett that sells for less than $100. One friend was dressed like a penguin. Another like a pineapple. Dunn wore a sleeveless banana costume. All of them were rocking the commemorative mullets the Coyotes provided to each fan on opening night, with blonde hair cascading down the back, and "GO COYOTES GO! " and "YOU DO YOU" on the headband.

It's a unique experience that you don't get very often, " he said. "It takes you back a little bit to where you played junior and where you played in college. And this is a great college or junior rink. "Doan's favorite aspect of the Mullett experience: Having fans right on top of the players. "It's going to be something that the fans won't normally get to experience [at an NHL game], " he said.

'It's a new chapter of hockey here': What players, fans were saying after the Coyotes' first ASU gameOct 31, 2022Greg WyshynskiESPN CloseGreg Wyshynski is ESPN's senior NHL writer. TEMPE, Ariz. -- Charles Lutz stood at the top of the student section at Mullett Arena, the college hockey rink that will house the NHL's Arizona Coyotes for at least the next three seasons. Below him were Arizona State University students dressed like a pineapple, a banana and a character from "Squid Game, " undulating to the beat of a drum line that provided the soundtrack for the Coyotes' home opener against the Winnipeg Jets on Friday.
