Profits from a partnership between the Arizona Coyotes and another company in the team owner’s portfolio are at stake as reports of pending relocation swirl.

Alex Meruelo’s company SaharaBets uses a state license that his Coyotes are eligible for because home games are played in Arizona.

A gaming department spokesperson says the Coyotes have not given notice of plans to leave the state.
