GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Phoenix Coyotes’ four-year bid for stability will finally come to a close soon.

At tonight’s Glendale City Council meeting, the Coyotes will find out if the city will approve an arena lease agreement with Renaissance Sports & Entertainment, which has an agreement in place to buy the franchise from the NHL.

Should the council approve the 15-year, $225 million deal for Jobing.com Arena, the path will be cleared for the Coyotes to stay in Arizona.
