The National Hockey League has decided to make Seattle its next expansion city, which will lead to the Arizona Coyotes changing divisions in three years — from the Pacific to the Central.

But the news means some Coyotes’ fans can breathe a sigh of relief, because Seattle was one of the cities rumored to be an option if the Coyotes relocated from the Valley.

With me to talk about all of that is Craig Morgan, staff writer for the Athletic Arizona, which covers the Coyotes.
