The 2010–11 Phoenix Coyotes season is the Coyotes' 14th season in the National Hockey League (NHL) and 31st in franchise history.

Off-season Edit

On June 17, the Coyotes announced their eight-game pre-season schedule, which includes two split-squad games, and a game against Dinamo Riga of the KHL, in Riga, Latvia. Due to the Phoenix Coyotes bankruptcy , the NHL threatened to play out the season in Winnipeg and Saskatoon, but Glendale agreed to cover any potential profit loss during the season, so the team will stay put for this season.

Regular seasonEdit


The Coyotes will attempt to return to the playoffs for a second consecutive season.
