02:53 PM ET 05.24 | According to a report and multiple sources, the Phoenix Coyotes are close to giving general manager Don Maloney a new contract, as told to Fox Sports Arizona. This is good news for Coyotes fans because Maloney has brought the team into prominence in three seasons also dealing with the lowest payroll. Another reason why this is good news because Maloney's contract was set to expire on June 30th. According to Don Maloney, he stated that the Coyotes finished with the lowest payroll in the Western Conference which is $49 million and the second lowest in the NHL, with only the New York Islanders spending less and making the playoffs this season. With Maloney now in the fold, the NHL can now move onto other things with this franchise as the league is the team's current owner. Also sources say that head coach Dave Tippett is next to work out a deal. Tippett's contract also expires on June 30th.

I'm surprised they didn't use that snazzy arena picture.
