The 2013–14 Phoenix Coyotes season was the franchise’s 35th season in the National Hockey League (NHL), the 18th in Phoenix, Arizona and 42nd overall, including the World Hockey Association years. The Coyotes finished the season seated 9th in the Western Conference, missing the playoffs for the second consecutive year.

As part of the deal approved by the city of Glendale to keep the team in the desert on July 2, the team will change its name from the Phoenix Coyotes to the Arizona Coyotes by the start of the 2014–2015 season.[2]

As a result of realignment, this was the first season in which the franchise had the Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, and Vancouver Canucks as division rivals since the 1992–93 season, when the team was still known as the Winnipeg Jets and the Pacific Division was called the Smythe Division. During the "top 4 teams in each division in playoffs" era, the Jets had intense rivalries with the Flames, Oilers, and Canucks.

Off-season[edit]

After years of relocation rumors and speculation, the Coyotes were sold to IceArizona AcquisitionCo., LLC on August 5, 2013, keeping the Coyotes in Glendale, Arizona.[3]
