The NHL rejected an offer from California businessman Darin Pastor to buy the Phoenix Coyotes and keep them in Glendale, Ariz., according to TVA Sports.

Pastor submitted a bid on Friday to purchase the Coyotes, who are currently owned by the league.

But NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told TVA Sports, "The offer is not one that the NHL is interested in pursuing, and we have informed Mr. Pastor of that."

An investment group led by Alberta investment banker George Gosbee seems to be the favorite to buy the club and keep it in Arizona, according to ProHockeyTalk.com.
