The 2014–15 Arizona Coyotes season is the 36th season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on June 22, 1979, the 19th season since the franchise relocated from Winnipeg following the 1995–96 NHL season,[1] and the 43rd overall, including the World Hockey Association years.

Off-season[edit]

The club officially changed their team name to the "Arizona Coyotes" on June 27, 2014 at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.[2] The name change was part of the deal approved by the City of Glendale to keep the team from relocating.[3]

Training camp[edit]

The Coyotes will compete in eight preseason exhibition games before the start of the 2014-15 regular season.[2]
