Arizona Coyotes on the ice in 2019.

There’s still some final paperwork to be taken care of, and the National Hockey League’s Board of Governors need to issue their approval, but sometime this summer the Arizona Coyotes are expected to have a new majority owner.

His name is Alex Meruelo, and his various business interests include the gaming industry and media outlets.

Current majority owner Andrew Barroway has been searching for a new partner while still hoping to maintain a significant chunk of ownership.

For more on who Meruelo is and what could be next for the Coyotes, John Shannon of SportsNet Canada joined The Show.
