NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly has told TSN that there is no truth to a Toronto radio report that the NHL is preparing to move the Phoenix Coyotes to Winnipeg in the coming weeks.

The report on Wednesday suggested that a move would be announced by the league once the Coyotes are eliminated from the playoffs.

"The report has no basis in fact. No decisions have been made at this point one way or the other. And we continue to be active in our efforts to effectuate a sale of the franchise in Glendale," Daly told TSN.

Winnipeg sources also say they have no such information of an imminent move and contend the NHL hasn't even remotely suggested such a move is in the works.

Winnipeg continues to wait patiently, but can't wait much longer before having to commit to existing AHL partners.
