Coyotes make special request to visiting Oilers fans for finale

Published April 15, 2024 at 9:02 PM

The Arizona Coyotes have made a special request to all Edmonton Oilers fans visiting the Mullet Arena for the franchise finale.

The Coyotes have their final game of the 2023-24 regular season coming up, and it's set to be an emotional one at Mullett Arena on Wednesday night. This game marks the last NHL contest in the state for at least the next five years, as the Coyotes prepare to relocate to Salt Lake City.

Facing off against the Edmonton Oilers, Coyotes fans are hoping to make it a memorable send-off. In a Reddit post, one fan urged Oilers supporters attending the game to participate in a whiteout, asking them to wear white jerseys or gear to join in the farewell festivities.

"Plea to visiting Oilers fans in Arizona on Wednesday - Wear White if Possible

Good Afternoon Oilers family, visiting Yotes fan here.

We are attempting to organize a whiteout, I've been to quite a few Oilers vs Yotes games where we've been outnumbered, so I merely ask if you are able to where a white Oilers jersey or gear you would make us all happy.

I hope if you are attending this game you all enjoy and have a great time sending off our boys one last time in Arizona."

It would be a touching gesture for Oilers fans to join the whiteout, showing solidarity with Coyotes supporters during this emotional time of transition for hockey fans in Arizona.

For those unable to attend, the game will be broadcast live on Sportsnet across Canada starting at 10 p.m. ET. Following the game, the NHL is expected to officially announce the Coyotes move to Salt Lake City, Utah, either on Thursday or Friday.

Do you think the message will be successfully sent to all Oilers fans?
