The Arizona Coyotes have announced that today’s pre-season game against the Los Angeles Kings has been cancelled due to poor ice conditions. The game will not be rescheduled or played at a later date and fans are being given a full refund for their tickets.
In a media statement released yesterday from Coyotes CEO Steve Patterson he said:
”We know that our fans and corporate partners were excited to see the Coyotes play tomorrow and we were very disappointed to learn that the ice was not in a suitable playing condition for the game. The arena manager, AEG Facilities, has assured us that all measures are being taken to repair the ice as soon as possible."
The poor quality of ice at the Gila River Arena is being blamed on a Saturday night concert.
