BREAKING: Arizona player disses the franchise

JUL 29, 2023   |   BY AUSTIN SABOURIN
The Arizona Coyotes' foray into "hockey in the desert" has been a challenging endeavor, as Gary Bettman's hopes haven't panned out as planned.

Presently, the team is grappling with difficulties while playing in ASU's Mullett Arena, prompting calls for Bettman to confront the reality and consider relocating the team.

Their current predicament is worsened by the fact that they now occupy a less-than-ideal arena with a mere 4,600 seats.

Disappointingly, the arena rarely saw sold-out games, with most matches featuring a majority of away fans due to high ticket prices, even reaching $160 for the cheapest seat in the tiny university arena.


«I don't think a single game was sold out this year. It was mostly away fans too. The prices are stupid, $160 for the cheapest seat in a tiny university arena.»


Karel Vejmelka, the team's goaltender, expressed his dismay over the past season's struggles. The challenges they faced, coupled with the failure to pass a referendum for funding a new district and arena, have raised concerns for the Arizona Coyotes' future.

While the situation may not be the most favorable, Vejmelka's criticism of the team may not endear him to the front office or Gary Bettman. As they await a new Arizona home, the Coyotes must navigate these hardships to maintain their credibility.
