The Phoenix Coyotes announced today that the team has reached an agreement with Pointstreak Sports Technologies Inc. to provide a technology overhaul for hockey players in Arizona. Through this partnership, the Coyotes are making a long-term investment in youth and recreational hockey in Arizona by providing participating leagues with access to Pointstreak's real-time scoring and official statistics system, content management and website hosting system, online registration platform and video indexing system. The Coyotes will be installing the Pointstreak hardware and software system in all participating Arizona based ice facilities providing access to the system to all interested associations, leagues and teams.
"The Coyotes are committed to grassroots initiatives and growing hockey in the desert," said Coyotes Co-Owner, President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc. "This program provides valuable services to the Valley's leagues and teams while enhancing the playing experience for every hockey player in Arizona. We believe this initiative will further entrench the Coyotes within the community of hockey players and fans in the state of Arizona."
"Pointstreak is excited to be associated with this initiative and looks forward to providing our various sports technology solutions to Valley area amateur and recreational hockey," said Scott Secord, President/CEO of Pointstreak. "The Coyotes' support of amateur hockey is a true testament to their commitment to hockey in Arizona and Pointstreak is indeed proud to be a part of that commitment."
