PHOENIX (AP) - NHL commissioner Gary Bettman says four prospective buyers have filed preliminary background applications to purchase the insolvent Phoenix Coyotes and keep the team in Arizona.
The interested parties include Jerry Reinsdorf, owner of baseball's Chicago White Sox and the NBA's Chicago Bulls; Howard Sokolowski and David Cynamon, co-owners of the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League; and Las Vegas-based businessman John Breslow, who owns 3 percent of the Coyotes.
The fourth prospective buyer requested anonymity while further investigating the possible purchase, Bettman said in a declaration
filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
