The Phoenix Coyotes put single game tickets for the first portion of the season on sale yesterday. Of course, the big question is whether or not those games will actually occur based on the lack of a labor agreement at the moment. We've got a couple of CBA related links today, as well as news on another player signing a long term contract extension, an update on the CHLPA drama, and more.
Update: Our very own Carl Pavlock will again be reporting from court this morning. This time he'll be at the appellate hearing on Save Glendale Now's petition related to the sale tax increase voted on by the Glendale City Council.
