In an effort to give potential Phoenix Coyotes owner Greg Jamison more time to try to buy the team, the Glendale City Council has instructed staff to extend its arena management agreement with the league by a month, according to an Arizona Republic report.
The city's third 30-day agreement with the National Hockey League was set to expire this week.
The extension comes almost four months after the council approved a 20-year, $324 million deal with Jamison, who is trying to purchase the team. The franchise has been league-operated since former owner Jerry Moyes filed for bankruptcy in 2009.
