The Coyotes’ time in Phoenix could finally be running out.

The NHL plans on making a decision about relocating the franchise before the playoffs, TSN reports. The post-season begins April 30.

Quebec City, Seattle and Kansas City were listed as possible sites for the franchise to take root.

The league hasn’t given up on keeping the team in Glendale, Ariz., according to the report, but for the first time since the NHL bought the team out of bankruptcy in 2009 it appears relocation is on the table.

It also seems there’s a new potential buyers for the Coyotes.

According to Sportsnet, a group of Canadian investors, led by Ice Edge Holdings CEO Anthony LeBlanc and George Gosbee, who is the head of AltaCorp Capital and Vice Chair of AIMCo, are in the mix to buy the franchise.

The goal of LeBlanc and Gosbee, however, would be to keep the team in Arizona.
