PHOENIX -- The NHL says there has been no sale of the Phoenix Coyotes.

Dave Zorn of Metro Networks Arizona had reported that former San Jose Sharks CEO Greg Jamison was approved by the NHL to purchase the Coyotes.  Former Coyotes star, Jeremy Roenick, is reportedly part of Jamison's group.

The Coyotes are no longer financially supported in Glendale, where they are losing money.  Seattle sports fans see the team as a potential tenant of the city's newly proposed NBA/NHL arena.

Members of the Phoenix Coyotes Coalition had told KING 5 News they would celebrate when they heard it from the NHL, the current owners of the team.
