GLENDALE, Ariz. - NHL commissioner Gary Bettman met with city officials on Monday to discuss the process of keeping the Phoenix Coyotes in Glendale.

"We weren't in town to negotiate with the city of Glendale," Bettman said before the Coyotes' game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. "It was a session where we updated them on the process of finding a new owner."

Neither Bettman nor a spokesman for the city elaborated on details of the meeting.
